New to Smartthings, have a problem with a smartthings outlet that I just purchased. It seems to be “tripping out” when the power load goes over 600w. Reading the outlet information, it seems that it shouldn’t have a problem but none the less it does.
Basically I have a water leak sensor that I wanted to make where if a leak is detected, a smart outlet with my ice machine (the one in having a problem with) will automatically turn off.
The outlet ran for a few days with no problem but when I checked this morning, the power on the ice machine was off and the light on the from was flashing red. I manually turned the plug back on by pressing the button then turned the ice machine back on. It ran for about a minute and then as soon as the compressor turned on, the outlet turned off and started flashing red again. Checked the smartthings classic app and the last power reading it had was just under 600w. This is a brand new ice machine that had been running fine (not tripping out any of my breakers) when plugged into my wall outlet directly.
Just to be clear, this is the smart outlet that I have
Am I overloading the smart outlet? If so, is there a different outlet that I can use that will support an appliance?
