SOURCE: 3 combination arc fault breakers tripping under load

What is happening is the white wire that comes off the breaker is probably too close to another neutral or too close to a hot wire that is on one of the other circuits that will make it trip when you use a drill etc... Check to see if the coiled up white wire off of the breaker is not near a hot in the panel. I have had lots of arc fault breakers trip for that reason.

SOURCE: Siemens Main Breaker 125 Amp gets warm and trips

sounds like a loose connection ,or possibly a weak main breaker.

SOURCE: how do I run from a 100 amp main panel to a 60 amp

See 60 Amp sub-panel image

Above image shows drawing of 60Amp sub-panel located next to main panel. Drawing shows #6 wire... 125' distance to garage calls for #4 wire. I ran #4 to my barn and have no problems.

Give thought to how many new breakers you want at garage.
See photo of subpanel that holds three 240V breakers

Using drawing as a guide. Replace existing 240Volt breaker with new 60 Amp breaker. Two hot wires connect to new 60 Amp breaker. Neutral connects to neutral busbar.

More space: You can free up space in main breaker box using a tandem breaker. Or by doubling up 2 lightly used 120V circuits onto one breaker. Do not double-up on 240 Breakers

Conduit: You want PVC conduit large enough to fit three #4 wires. Bigger conduit is easier to pull wires ... and maybe later ethernet wire, or alarm wire etc.

Ground wire: You can put a ground rod at garage and run #6 bare copper between sub-panel neutral-busbar and ground rod. Attach ground wire firmly with grounding clamp.

I want you to check with local electrical supply for exact code in your area concerning conduit requirements, grounding, and wire size. Tighten all lugs very tight against wire.

SOURCE: a 60 Amp breaker (three phase) powers an 125 amp

The breaker that feeds the panel and the wire are what determines the rating. The panel has to be at least as high as the breaker. It can be more, and no problem.The problem I see is that the wiring is undersized for the 60 amp breaker. You should have #6 wires or change the breaker to a 50 amp. If that is not enough for your load, you must change the wiring. It also depends on the type of wire. THHN will have the largest amperage, but if it is TW, it will be lower. Rule of thumb would be #10-30 amp, #8-40-50 amp, #6-50-60 amp, #4-70-90 amp and #2-95-135 amp. There are other factors, such as derating etc. but if you wanted to increase to 100 amp, I would run #2 thhn. Hope this helps.

You could use 6/3 with ground. You must take an equipment ground conductor along with your current carrying conductors. Still drive a ground rod at the building, and add a seperate ground bar in the sub panel. Connect your equipment grounding conductor from main building along with the equipment grouding conductor to the ground rod. Do not bond the neutral in the sub panel to ground. Be aware you will still have some voltage drop, so a 220V air conditioner might be better.

AC Breaker trips and AC Fan turns slow.


Sounds like you have a bad capacitor for your squirrel cage fan , now as for the a/c unit sounds like you have a direct short in compressor to ground or leg to leg , check all wiring to make sure that it is not grounding out or melted together.

your a/c uses the blower motor from the heater to distribute air check for loose wire connections that will raise amperage and also make sure you have the right size wire to each unit 40 amp should have 8 awg(copper) wire and 60 shouldbe 6 awg i think if the wire is to small=heat= higher amperage
