Ge 50amp gfci trips, worked great before I bought it


Hi hondo,

When an electric motor kicks on there is an in rush current called FLA(full load amps), it is usually about 125% of rated circuit amperage. Try a 2 pole 60 amp gfci circuit breaker and see if that solves your issue. Going up to this amp breaker will not be a fire hazard or cause any anomalies.

Breaker kicks off as soon as switch is turned on


the gfci is defective from moisture even after they dry they can be defective,access the cord inside the machine and try a different cord and see if this is your problem,otherwise the pump motor could be bad,the bypass valve on the pump could be bad,if you could run it you could check current draw with an amprobe,but not if it wont start

Jacuzzi hot tub, aero select. pops circuit breaker as soon as switch is thrown. I disconected both motors and panel. still blows. Unit is about 8 Years old. Is there anywhere I can get a schmatic or any...


Your Jacuzzi should be connected to a large GFI breaker. If it pops as soon as you turn something on, there is an imbalance between the legs supplying the power to your device. When my (small "J") jacuzzi (at about age 15) did this, I discovered a small leak that had dripped onto the circuit board and had left a deposit causing a "short". I was able to clean the deposit off of the board physically, I fixed the leak and return my tub to service.

The GFI is very sensitive and for good reason. It protects you from dangerous electric voltages, even though the danger is low.

Compressor on my RV coleman ac unit bogging down


Take a look at your start capacitor. This the capacitor that kicks the compressor over when it tries to start. If the capacitor is bad, it cannot kick the compressor back over after the first cycle because the head pressure has not evened out yet. It is located in the upper unit on the side panel in a small box. Be careful, highly charged capacitors can zap you if you are not careful. Disconnect power and touch across the terminals with a meter or a screwdriver to discharge the capacitor.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Coleman evcon dgat090bdd. New ignitor won't heat up.


Looks like 4 flashes might be high limit fault on this furnace. (I don't have a manual for this furnace, just searched online for the code meaning) Is the unit running flame at all? Is the unit running flame for a while then shutting flame off before desired temp is reached? Does the main air fan turn on to circulate air through your diffusers? Does it feel like the unit has much air flow out of the diffusers if the fan is running? Is your air filter clean? If it is infact your high limit switch, it is usually caused by not having enough airflow through the furnace and overheating occurs.

Hope this helped, let me know if I can assist you further :)

I have a coleman/evcon heat pump. When the thermostat kicks on the contacts kick in and hum but the compressor nor the fan run. Is this probably my capacitor has gone bad?


I would check the hig voltage power supply to the unit. Check the main breaker and make sure it is on. Check the disconnect and make sure there is power at that point to the condensing unit. The contactor will kick in from the low voltage in the control circuit.
