We'd need to know more information. What machine do you have, and do you know its rating? What is the Amperage rating of your breaker, and are the outlets all on the same breaker? Perhaps the fridge is on the same breaker? That would be bad, but it's not unheard of. Does the breaker feel noticeably warm to the touch when you flip it back on? Anything else powered on that would cause this if all the outlets were tied to one breaker?
What machine do you have, and do you know its rating? BZ07, 1200 watt element
What is the Amperage rating of your breaker, and are the outlets all on the same breaker? Unknown, and I think so. Not sure if fridge outlet is, though Does the breaker feel noticeably warm to the touch when you flip it back on? I didn't notice, but if it happens again, I'll check Anything else powered on that would cause this if all the outlets were tied to one breaker? It's on a six plug adapter, but nothing else was being used of on it at the time (grinder, Technivorm, another grinder, stand mixer)
most important, does the breaker trip when you turn the machine on, if so there is a direct short in the machine. Most likely a shorted heating element
I wasn't there when it happened, my wife turned it on for me so it'd be ready in an hour's time. But she was making breakfast for everyone, and must have turned on the kettle or the toaster after she turned the machine on, which are on seperate plugs.
I'll take a picture of the breaker board when I get home, and hopefully have more informed answers for you..
It wouldn't be impossible to work around, but annoying on busy mornings..
Sure, if you want to burn your house down. The breaker has to match the rating of the wiring. If the wiring is rated for 15A then the largest breaker you can safely use is 15A. It's safe to say your wiring is rated for 15A since that's the size of breaker.
As mentioned above, if it was the only thing on then you may have a machine issue as the machine is only 1200 w. The machine alone though pretty much takes up the whole circuit and if she used a toaster or other heavy draw appliances then it was too much load.
