These machines are very marginal for a 13 amp supply. A lot depends on complex issues with your supply wiring but not meaning there is a fault at all.
Fit a 16amp commando socket with a 16amp (ideally type c) breaker and you will have no further problems.

Agree, I owned one as my first PT, great machine but I had the same issues. When it gets colder outside it may blow more frequently, as acold motor makes a big difference.
There is unlikely to be anything wrong with the machine.

if you have not got a consumer unit in the garage, then ideally there should be one fitted there to house the 16 amp breaker. You can get small CUs quite cheaply for the purpose from Toolstation, screwfix etc.
