I bought a big air compressor. Plug into one of my outlet and it
tripped the breaker. So I unplug and connect it to an outlet that also
used for my washing machine. This time, no breaker was tripped (at
least that's what I see from the panel.) But that whole circuit is now
without electrcity. Could anyone help with possible cause and fix?
The house is 40 years old. The breakers and panel are all Zinsco.
Turn the breaker to the "off" position, then back on. Some breakers
will trip, but not appear to be tripped.
It sounds like your compressor requires amperage than your circuits
have available. Either that, or there is a short-circuit in the

You are right on!
Since I cannot figure out, I finally called a technicain. And he just
did what you said above. The brreaker actually got tipped but didn't
appear like it should be. Thanks very much.
Thanks for all your helps.
