If You Had Provided More Information As To The Red Button, It Would Be Easier To Help You. Since You Mentioned A Hairdryer, I Will Assume This Is In The Bath. Also Since Your Mention Of A Hairdryer And A Red Button I Also Will Assume You Have A GFCI Recptical. This Will Have A Little Black Test Button & A Red Reset Button. If This Is The Case. You Are Overloading The Circuit { This May Be Due To The Way The Wiring Was Ran. And Again Your Ground Fault Recptical May Be Bad. ) That Is +++++++++ If We Are Talking About The Same Thing. Remember You Have Circuir Breakers In You House Also. These Are In Your Electric Control Box Where The Main Breaker Is. If This Isn`t Enough Info. Please Ask Question Again Providing More Info. But It Sounds Like You Are Overloading The Circuit. If It Is OK Without The Hairdryer On, Put It In Another Recptical. Also Your Circuit Breakers Can Go Bad. There Is Just To Many Things With So Little Info. Hope This Don`t Mess You Up If you are referring to the little red button on the outlet your hairdryer is attached to, it is a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter). The little red button should only trip if water, such as dropping it into the bathtub, interferes with the circuit. If you are referring to such a device on your bathroom electrical outlet, there should be absolutely no relation to any other circuit, including outdoor lighting. In that case, a liscensed electrical contractor should be consulted.

This may be related to the oils used on some parts of the inner mechanisms of the dryer. When heated, the oils could smell slightly similar to the smell of a gas dryer.
