Marked up wrong in the consumer unit? Is it tripping the RCD or MCB? About as good as I can do remotely.
My edit... so the hoover does the same? Pure guesswork but a faulty socket outlet? You didn’t mention the hoover first time around. I really would get an electrician in to investigate/rectify.
2nd Edit... I refer you to my previous two answers.

Your food mixer is clearly faulty, if it’s tripping on more than one circuit it proves the circuits are not faulty, call a Electrical appliance repairer to sort out the food mixer.

Agree with above.. also could be some unmarked spur socket connected from cable / circuit that you wouldn't expect
That could cause "tripping of different circuit"

You need an electrician to investigate and identify the fault. It's no good guessing over the Internet.
You could have a serious problem.
