Popcorn machein trips mains
So start from beginning I decided to deep clean my kettle full of grease oil etc from many uses so I removed the kettle from my machein and removed the black inner pot from the outer silver metal pot and disconnected the red and blue wire from the inner pot I then cleaned the inner pot and wiped down the outer pot with a damp cloth and let them dry next to a radiator for a few hrs they where both very dry and hot when I put the pots back togeather and connect the wires it trips the breakers in my house and I have to go to the meter and flip it back on
If I keep the two pots apart then everything works fine it heats up etc fine
Soon as I put them back togeather it trips the breakers I have tried electrical tape on all the joints and on top of the unit inside the outer pot to make sure nothing is touching
Now I do have a multimeter and I put each end on the connections on the inner pot and it gives me a reading on the OL setting this is the only test I have done has I have never used a multimeter and no idea what setting to have it on or what to test
I have included more pictures too
Cette question est-elle utile ?
Ps if I keep the pots apart it works fine

Demonloadz what does the bottom end look like? The end where the wire comes into the bowl. What exactly do you mean by "shortening electrics"? What happens? I would start by applying a strip of electrical tape between the contacts of the heating coil and the bowl. I would also apply strips over the two shoes where the electrical cable connects too. And one more over the contacts on the switch/thermostat inside the bowl. What is really interesting is that there are absolutely, no burn marks anywhere. It could of course be as @dadibroke it suggests. If you leave it just as is in the picture and you connect an ohmmeter between the blue wire and the bigger bowl, does it show continuity? Do you have continuity between the Blue and the Red cable? Continuity between the Blue and the White cable as well as continuity between Blue and the blue and Red and the bowl.
@oldturkey03 I hesitated to suggest electrical tape due to the heat involved; regular tape probably isn't going to be suitable so I imagine you'd have to use some sort of high temperature version.

@dadibrokeit Yes, me too but I want to use it as a troubleshooting aid. It would not be a permanent solution but it’ll help to see if we can narrow things down.
