Question about Heating & Cooling
Posted by Anonymous on
Compressor motor is stalled on start up which trips breaker. Try changing out the start capacitor. Its supposed to change the AC phase to enable more starting torque on a stopped motor.

The compressor motor , once warm is grounding out due to wear and is going bad.Have the compressor replace while it is still clean is cheeper and easier that doing it after a burn out,which will eventually happen,if the compressor is tripping the brreaker as I suspect..

SOURCE: AC tripping breaker.
Check its wiring connection. Could be loose connection, corrosion.Or the breaker is already retiring. If the breaker is fairly rated to the aircon unit. Also insect could be the culprit.

The problem is that when u add up the electrical draw from all of these appliances running full bore, your draw exceeds your available amperage. Now you are doing the math and saying no...... Let me tell you why. It is rare to find a situation where a 100 amp service actually porovides 100 amps. You almost always have voltage dropo. And when you are adding extension cords to the mix the drop is even more. That said, When you are using the AC try to minimize the use of other appliances, especially the microwave which is a big draw too.

SOURCE: ac unit breaker trips off
First thing to do turn off the breaker in the electrical panel, then open up the AC outdoor unit, including the disconnect box, that should be mounted on the wall near the outdoor unit. Go thru and tighten all of the screws and wire nuts, look for burnt wires, while you are at it.
Turn on the breaker and try again, if it still trips, then we look deeper;
pull the control panel off the outdoor unit and look for the contactor, this is where the power coming into the outdoor unit hooks up to. There will be a set of contacts in the control, check it out and see if the points are badly burnt,
If all off the wire checking still has not helped, it will more than likely be a bad condensor fan motor or a compressor, the compressor is the big black thing in the bottom of the outdoor unit, making sure that all power is turned off, pull the plastic cover off of the side of the compressor, there will be 3 wires, make sure none of them are burnt and touching the metal, if they are, repair the wire and test.
Try this and if you need to know how to troubleshoot to see if it is the fan motor or the compressor, just contact me back.
If this has been helpful, please rate me.
Contact me if I can help you any more.
