bissell carpet cleaner

What is the amp size for the breaker that is tripping? If it's 15 amp, try plugging it into a 20 amp circuit receptacle. You should find 20 amp circuits in bathrooms, clothes washer and kitchen counter receptacles. If it runs on the 20 amp circuit there is nothing wrong with the machine.
