I generate smoke whenever I cut with the laser, so I bought a window fan. When I was partway through one of the cuts, I tried to increase the fan's speed, but it turned off, and the laser stopped. I checked the power strip feeding them and flipped the switch/circuit breaker, but it didn't resume. Next, I checked the house's CB, but that was still working. I was puzzled at what was blocking power and hoped there wasn't a burnt wire in the walls. On a hunch, I went to the adjacent bathroom and checked the GFI outlet, which was triggered, and when I reset it, my equipment restarted. I lost the copy I was partway through, but I started a new one.
