I have the Vaccum Form Machine built per Tk560's specs but the oven keeps tripping the breaker in the house. At first the middle segment of the oven got real hot and melted and I figured out I had miss spaced my nuetral connections. Once fixed It heats up find but pops the 15Amp breaker for the socket im in after about 20seconds.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a 20 amp or better yet a 30 am cicruit to run the oven and vac.

15 amps is just not enough.
