Hair Dryer & Makeup Mirror Mystery
At my wife's makeup table, she has (among other things) a hair dryer and makeup mirror. The makeup mirror she just bought at a yard sale a few weeks ago.
Twice now, the built-in circuit breaker on the hair dryer plug has tripped. The kicker is, it was not being used at the time.
The first time it happened, I had to reset it, and told her the dryer must have overheated while using it. She told me that she wasn't even using it. The second time, she told me that when she turned her makeup mirror on, she actually heard a click come from under the table, and so she tested the hair dryer, and of course, it didn't work.
Is it possible for the makeup mirror to somehow send something down through the cord, and back up into the hair dryer cord causing the breaker to trip? And if so, this sounds quite dangerous. Should we get rid of this mirror?
Thanks for the input.
