Hello elanalex,
When your heater shuts off it trips your main breaker and that is usually associated with the interupt capacity of the breaker ( which means that while your heater is drawing current, if the thermostat says stop.. you are interupting that current demand abruptly and your getting a surge back to your breaker, You may be able to add a surge arrestor to that power feed to suppress that problem. You may also be able to repsecify your main breaker with one that has a higher interupt capacity.. Check with a local electrical supply house..explain the problem and they should be able to provide a hardware solution. Make sure you provide details on your circuit breaker brand so they can provide the proper solution.. GoodLuck
Regards,
Rick

The A/c and heating unit does not cut on anymore. What could the problem be?


Are you sure you have power? Is it 220? if so double check Circut breaker. If it's popped and pops again when you reset, unplug the unit. Try to reset again, If it pops again when you reset, you have major electrical problem call electrician. If it holds, then you have a major appliance problem that is causing the unit to "pop" the circut breaker. If it's a central unit similar diagnostics, but you can't unplug it. So call your Heating service people. It may just be your thermostat if central system, or more.if the Circut Breaker pops.

What can make the screen go off and the heat and airconditioning not work


Sounds to me like a breaker has popped. In the main power panel, see if one of the breakers is in the center position.

Has there been issue with 30 amp curcuit breaker needing to be changed to 40 amp on 2002 FXST


Main circuit breakers were a problem on the older bikes, problem being when over heated the would pop and you would lose all power to the bike. Now if you bike is dying and you still have power and are able to crank it but it wont start, then I'd be looking at you CPS not the main breaker. One way to tell if it's CPS is to remove it when bike doesn't start. Wipe all the oil off, take a can of compressed air blow it on the CPS to cool it down, put back in bike and start it, If it starts then the sensor is bad.

Fan runs and it wont ignite


Hi, when a fan runs on a unit before ignition it is a sign of a lockout. One or more of the lomit switches may have been tripped. Here are some sugestions to try.
1. Turn thermostat down all the way.
2. Turn the power off to the unit.
3. Wait 5 mins then turn the power back on and then the t-stat 20' above room temp.

Most units have a small inducer fan and a main blower which circulates the heat through the ducts. If the main blower is the one coming on then more than likely a limit switch has been tripped.

A limit switch (some units have three to five) is a small circular metal unit screwed to parts of the furnace. It normally has two low voltage wires going to it and a small (Really small) little pop up breaker . Locate them and just try pushing the button, if you here a click then you have rest the switch (As long as it does not continue to pop you can call it a freak and and enjoy the heat, however if it continues to trip any number of problems could be the cause of it.

Hope this helps, contact me if you need more help.

The heating elements had burned up in the unit therefor creating a dead short on that circuit. Main breakers on homes and buildings are VERY sensitive and will sometimes trip before the smaller branch cicuit breakers will . So the popping you heard was the heating elements breaking down inside the unit it can be some what noisy.

Try turning off the thermostat, and the curcuit breaker for the Furnance isside the Breaker box, wait about 15-20 minutes and turn the breaker back on, this should reset the thermostat and clear the lock-out, and you should be able to obtain heat, if the Furnance is displaying a code you will have to find out the meaning of the code and do the necessary steps on the furnance cover under troubleshooting.

My heater will not work


the remote is the "brains to the heat pump/air con, low battery power or spent batteries will effect the cycle between indoor unit and outdoor unit, replace the batteries and turn off curcuit breaker at main switch board for a couple of minutes and turn back on. Try restarting unit.

Fan motor comes on, however, when a/c is turned on, breaker pops


If the unit is working fine in heat mode and in fan only mode, you have a short in the wiring going to the ouside unit. If it were a fan relay, then everytime the fan came on the breaker would trip. But either way, there is a low voltage short taking place in the unit. If the compressor was bad, the indoor unit would run fine and would only blow the breakers to the ouside unit. I had a unit last summer that did the same exact thing. After I replaced the control wiring to the outside unit, everything worked like a charm. Good luck!
