  • Tripping my breaker

    When running my planner and my shop vac, I trip the breaker every once in a while. What do I need to do? The breaker is a 15 amp. I do have a sub junction that I could add a dedicated circuit for it. I couldn't replace the 15 with a 20 amp breaker? The only other thing on the 15 amp circuit is 2 flourescent lights. Thanks for helping me.
