fixer2013 :

hello, Thanks for using just answer.

fixer2013 :

I would suggest that there is damage to the cable. a cut or squashed so the inner conductors are shorting out.

fixer2013 :

Have you given the cable a visual check?

fixer2013 :

although you have changed the fuse in the plug , electricity may be going to the earth conductor in the cable which is tripping the main fuse.

fixer2013 :

If you fvind damage I would suggest you take it to a local repair shop in order toget a new one replaced safely and with a warrenty on the repair.

kind regards
