I am wondering if someone can help with my problem,
- New home...moved in two weeks
- Arc breakers mostly used.
I tried to use my year old treadmill for the first time this past weekend. I turned it on and it runs normally. Problem is that the other rooms start progressively losing power due to the arc breakers for the other rooms in the house tripping. The treadmill continues to run, so the breaker running it is not tripping. I can easily duplicate this problem everytime. The treadmill runs 120V and has a built in 15A breaker that is not tripping.
I called in a service order. The contractor that installs it sends technicians out and do some testing and then tell me it is the treadmill causing the problem. They ran an extension cord and plugged the treadmill into the GFCI outlet in the bathroom and no breakers tripped.
They basically are refusing to help and say it is the treadmill. I cannot help but think something is wired wrong as I would expect the breaker that the treadmill is running on to trip only if the treadmill is the problem.
Thanks in advance for all help!!
