If you've got circuit breakers tripping, you've still got a short somewhere. Pay particular attention to either of the handlebar switch housings. There are quite a number of wires running to each side and any one can easily be pinched and cause a short. I'd focus on the right side with the "Run-Stop" switch in it.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 1994 sportster wont turn over when pressing

Look for a bad connection between the battery and the starter solenoid, or between the battery and earth ( The bike frame) HD,s are prone to power drops where the connections are loose or dirty. another possibility , is that the starter motor itself has jammed up. To test this, get a decent fully charged 12v battery and a set of jumper leads. Disconnect the bikes original battery. With the jumper leads, place the black (neutral) wire onto the body of the starter motor. Locate the main power feed to the starter solenoid, its usually on the top of the starter motor and has a round rubber insulator covering it. Make sure the bike is not in gear. Better still, get someone to sit on it with the brakes on. CAREFULLY touch the starter solenoid terminal with the active battery lead, With the Red, (active) jumper lead. The starter , if its OK, should spin the engine over. If it does, you will know the starter is Ok and the problem is on your bike.. wiring , battery etc. If it doesnt turn over or the leads get hot, the starter is faulty and will require stripping out and servicing.. Good luck.

Why is my 50 amp GFIC breaker tripping out? I have just installed a new hot tube.I had one there before(smaller 40 amp) so there was already #8 wire there.The new hot tub requires a 50 amp. #6 wire. I just...


There might be a few things here:

1) Big problem >> the #8 wire is a fire hazard connected to a 50Amp breaker

#8 is a 40 amp breaker
#6 is a 55 amp breaker
We put #6 on a 60 amp breaker
Are you saying you hooked the #8 wire to the new 50 amp breaker, and the hot tub called for #6 wire?

Upsize your wire and breaker to meet code
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Wire-size-amp-rating.pdf

2) After putting the correct wire and breaker, you can still have a short in the circuit somewhere
We used to set equipment out in the field in early morning >> the grass was wet >> our equipment was fine, but the tiniest short would cause the GFCI to trip

I don't know where the problem is without a thorough checkout of every possible grounded surface. You need a good multi-meter

3) You better get an electrician over there to have a look before the place burns down or somebody wakes up dead in the hot water.

If I sound a bit scary here, it's because something doesn't sound right with your installation.

GE THQB 1 pole 20 Oily liquid appears to be seeping from multiple breakers, different panels but not all breakers. Breakers installed 1992. Any thoughts?


Hi,
There is no liquid in those breakers to seep out... my thought would be that some one used an anti oxidate compound on the wires when they installed them and that is running a bit as the breakers and wires heat and cool....
I would just check the wire connection for tightness and as long as the connections are tight I would not worry about it...

How to hook up single pole shunt tip breaker in panel


To be very safe, turn OFF your Main circuit breaker prior to doing this. This IS really important! You asked how to hook up the breaker, so I'm going to assume you already installed this. The first wire that you'll want to land under a screw is your ground (green) wire. This wire should be where all your ground/green wires are. Next, you're going to bring your white (neutral) wire to the neutral bar.  You should see other white wire's terminated (attached under screws) there. Then, bring your colored (ie usually a black or red) wire and attach it to your circuit breaker. Make sure that you are using a #10 guage wire. This wire guage is rated for 30 amps. If you're using a 20 amp circuit breaker, then use a #12 guage wire. And a #14 guage wire for 15 amp circuit breaker. Using these wire guages satisfy all electrical requirements (codes). Now, leave the circuit breaker in the OFF position, and close up your panel. After closing it, then turn ON your Main circuit breaker. If everything is fine, great! Before you turn on your circuit breaker, make sure the switch, device, receptacle (unplugged), is OFF. Then go to your electric panel and turn ON the circuit breaker. If the breaker holds (doesn't trip), then try your switch, device, or receptacle to see if everything works. One last thing to remember is, if you're using a 30 amp circuit breaker, then the device on the other end should only draw up to 24 amps. Meaning, don't put a 30 amp cir. brkr. on a 20 amp recectacle, switch, or device. For a 20 amp cir. brkr., 16 amps is the maximum load you can put on this. I hope this helps you. Just read it through once, and then highlight the main parts of this and you should do fine. Good Luck, and feel free to contact me if you'd like further assistance. - Jim

Iam having to rewire my 1985 ironhead sportster and need a wiring harness diagaram to show me were every thing connects


the circuit breakers - rectangular boxes near the battery there is a 40amp one which receives the copper strap from the battery and has twowires leaving it. One is to the IGN BATT connection and the other isusually red an goes to the Solid State regulator

The 30 amp circuit breaker has two wire terminals. One is from thecopper strap of the 40 amp circuit breaker and the other feeds thestarter relay(#30 in the FM schematic).
Example 1:
On the left side of the FM wire diagram for 85-85 XLH, under the words"Upper Fork Bracket" is a connector that is inside the headlite bucket.On the right half, top near corner, two holes are joined together by aline. That line represents one of those connectors.

Below it there is a single hole, then below that there is a vertical set of 3 joined together by a connector.

Example 2:
above the left handlebar is the in-headlite connector for all theorange wires. Orange wires always have 12 volts once the key is on.Note the right half of the connector - a vertical group of three andanother of two, using connectors.

Example 3:
above the start relay, the rear lights connector, a vertical group of three.

Have a dedicater 220v 20a circut break to a clothes dryer. The only work done but the electrician was a new main grounding wire and removed conduit and wiring in the basement. Now the breaker opens after 1...


Typically, a standard electric dryer is 30A 240V unless it is natural gas. If the wire is #10awg then you can put a 30A circuit breaker on it. If the wire is #12awg then you DO NOT want to put a larger circuit breaker on it or it over heat the wiring in the wall. If it was a short in the wiring the circuit breaker would trip immediately even with out the dryer plugged in. If it was a grounding problem the circuit breaker would not trip at all, it would just electrify the dryer chasis. It sounds like it is an over current problem, drawing more than 20 amps through the circuit breaker, or like the dryer has an internal problem that is causing the circuit breaker to trip.
