Question about Heating & Cooling
A 10 year old York Air Handler is trpping the main circuit after running in heat mode for a short period of time.
Something is causing the unit to drawing more current then normal.
Almost has to be the electric heat strip coils. they usually come on in stages. when the damaged strip comes on it kicks breaker. turn off all power, check with a meter , gently remove strips and inspect for broken or shorted coils. usually best to buy a new heat strip module. they are usually held in place as a module with 4 screws and a snap together wire connector .good luck. i have had some success if the wires are broken and not to brittle by bending a minute loop in the end of each wire and reconnect with the tiniest screw and washer and nut you can find, i'm talking real tiny. about the size of a bb if you can find em , or you can remove the damaged strip wire entirely to get some heat from remaining.
