Well, I tried to fire up my drum sander this morning. My shop used to run on extension cord out of our utility room. It doesn't at the moment, because I've evidently blown the entire circuit for the washer/dryer. I've reset the breaker, but to no success. Needless to say, Lori is far from happy with me at the moment & wants me to divert some of the Kickstarter funding to putting a meter and panel out in the shop itself.
Ignoring the sub panel/meter discussion for the moment. (I'm all for it, just not sure if we can swing it before the new year.)
What could I be missing on the breaker front? I've reset the entire panel, but no luck in the utility room. I don't have a meter or tester until I pick one up tomorrow. Any suggestions on what I'm Looking for today? I've unplugged the shop, so there's no load going out there, and the dryer works if I plug it in to another outlet. It has been at least 2 hours since the breaker popped. Suggestions?
