Normally when a electric motor turns on, there’s a power surge to get it going. This surge is what’s probably tripping the breaker. Are you using a 15 amp line with a 15amp breaker, or a 20 amp line with a 20 amp breaker. Check the manual, what does it say the machine requires. If it’s rated for 20 amp and your using 15 amp. you can possibly expect to trip a circuit.
