Son hit knob in with ironing board now can't use as if touch it it trips all electrics


There is a short in the switch where the two leads are making contact. If you take this apart you should find where this is happening and be able to fix this. You may need a new switch which should be very findable.

I have a power strip that keeps tripping its safety switch even though only one electric oven is plugged into it. What do I need to do?


did you try to plug directly in to a plug ?
maby your strip is defective or has a 10 amp overload protector this will trip with heating devices of your nature.

I have a Bosch b52l iron, when i turn on the steam button, it cuts off the power, what could it be


It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.

Option 1)
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.

Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).

Try the solutions in that order.

Dropping any iron is the kiss of death... dont use it again, especially on the steam setting.. you could electrocute yourself..
Dispose of it safely and get a new one. You wont make that mistake again in a hurry... I didnt!
