I plug a vacuum cleaner 1800 watts the meter jumps. If I put the meter back with the vacuum cleaner running it works. I do not understand. What do you understand about my problem?

The power of your vacuum cleaner should be just below that of the circuit to which you have connected it. If you turn it on it "calls" a power slightly above its rated power (like any electric motor) that causes the circuit breaker to operate. When, on the other hand, you switch on the vacuum circuit breaker connected, this voltage "jump" does not occur which would normally trip your circuit breaker. This is the interpretation I would give to the phenomenon you describe without guaranteeing it 100%. It would be best to connect your vacuum cleaner to a higher amperage circuit.
