I have a shopvac that has only a CE approval. It is labled to draw 2000 watts (with both motors on) and is hooked up for a 15 amp 120v plug. If my math is correct it should draw no more then 16.667 amps. After i powered it up I find that it is drawing over 20 amps unloaded with both motors on.

Is the CE approval valid in Canada? Im fairly sure the vac was built for 240vac at 50 Hz but was rewired for 120vac 60 Hz (poorly i might add).
no not approved for Canada
