solaris 442 breaker tripping

I just got a solaris 442 bed and when I plug it in and turn it on, it will run for about 60 seconds then I get a hot smell and then it pops and the breaker trips. this is a used bed and it worked fine the first dozen times we used it. What should I start with to see what's causing it. when it pops you hear it from the main box under the bed that everything hooks into.

Re: solaris 442 breaker tripping

That bed should be on a 40A breaker with about 220-225V running voltage.

If you bought it from a salon, perhaps it came with a transformer (buck booster) that you hooked up but don't need?

Step 1 - check the running voltage to the bed

Step 2 - check the harness connections (that you screwed on to the back of the ballast box underneath) -- make sure they are all on "evenly" --- if it is off a bit it can be arcing electric.

Step 3 - check the main power hookup INSIDE the ballast tray box. Are the wires in the right place and screwed in tightly with a good connection?


I wouldn't run it again until you get this resolved or you are likely to wind up with a fire or a fried computer board that will cost $$

Re: solaris 442 breaker tripping
