What are you working on? You say "motor", so I assume it is electric, because if it runs on gas it is an "engine". If unit is getting hot, it will trip the breaker. This could be due to cooling path restricted by trash, or unit working too hard due to load being faulty.
It sounds like something in that circuit is causing the overload. Disconnect anything that is in that circuit, flip the breaker, and one item at a time plug whatever was on that circuit back in until it trips again. Then try that item in a different circuit and see if it does the same thing. It could also be that the breaker is worn out and is tripping at a lower point that it supposed to. In that case you would have to replace the breaker.
Power? Has circuit breaker popped? Possible you have ground fault protected outlets and one of them popped like a circuit breaker. It usually causes all outlets on that circuit to also disconnect. They have a reset button similar to other circuit breaker devices, so double check. If it pops again, you may have a serious electrical problem or appliance problem. Unplug all appliances plugin one at a time to discover bad appliance. If none are bad and you still have frig problem. Time to call an electrician. You may be able to verify frig via extension cord from an outlet outside the kitchen. That if lights and buttons work, then you know it's the kitchen circuit problem. If not you may have a major problem with the control panel itself. Time for an appliance technician.
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.
Check your wiring for short circuits. If you turn the switch on and it pops it may be in the switch box or up in the fan box. Also make sure the fan blades spin freely. A motor overload or short circuit would be the only reason for the breaker tripping immediately.
you either have a tripped curcuit breaker or your heating element is blown. If the timer cannot sense that the heater is in the curcuit it will not advance check your curcuit breaker first. flip it on and then off and let me know if you have heat
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
