Does anyone know the specific electrical specifications of the new Precision Cooker? We received ours yesterday and about 10 minutes after turning it on it tripped the GFI in a kitchen outlet. We moved it to a non GFI protected outlet and it was fine. I’d just like to understand what, exactly happened. It was on a 15A circuit in which nothing else was running, plugged into a Legrand Adorne undercabinet plug strip attached to a GFI outlet which was in turn protected with arc flash at the breaker box. Considering my home burned down two years ago, I’m a little paranoid about fire and electrical hazards.
I am having the same issue.
My fuse also tripepd a few days ago when using my Precision Cooker. I didn’t think much of it because I used my microwave on the same circuit and thought it tripped due to overload.
However, it’s a 16-Ampere fuse (at 230 V, that’s 3680 kW (is this how it works? I’m not an expert when it comes to electricity)). The Precision Cooker is rated at 800 W and my microwave is rated at 900 W, so even with an insane overhead of 50% nothing should happen. I’m somewhat concerned that for some reason the Precision Cooker might have put voltage on the ground.
