Hi there and welcome,

Is the circuit breaker in your power box switching off? Or the appliance is just shutting down when you try to power up?

Please just confirm...

Thank you..

The breaker does not trip out. The air cleaner cuts out. When I push the start button, the cleaner tries to start but cuts right back out immediately.

Hmm sounds a bit odd.

Ill open this inquiry back up to the other experts, they have more experience with this type of appliance than I do...

Its hard to say without being able to look it over in person and check stuff with a multimeter etc..

Someone will be along to help soon okay,

Thank you

I did check a few points with my voltmeter. I don't have any information on the wiring, I don't know what I should be seeing at certain places in the circuit.
