Thank you for using JustAnswer!
If you have any questions after reading my answer,be sure to let me know.

It sounds like you have a shorted somewhere in the system. This can be in a wire or a wire harness. Unfortunately this type of thing may need a hands on tech on location to pull out the machine and open it up. Then slowly and methodically search the wires until the shorted wire is found.
If your machine plugs into a wall outlet, you will need to test the wall outlet is not the cause.
And then the machines cord from end to end. Where it connects to the inside of the machine it may be loose and arcing.
