Are you tripping the main? if you are you better get a electrician and see why if it's a smaller breaker then the appliance is pulling too much amperage for the rating of the breaker and thus heats up and trips after so many incidents the breaker eventually weakens and then trips out under normal usage which leads to replacement of said breaker

Intertherm e2eb 015ha


let me guess.....its electric, right? could be so many things! do this first. turn power off. check all wiring for burnt or broke wires., usually at connections. next turn system on. does blower stop running and then breaker trips? if so its blower motor or blower relay. if blower and wires are ok then problem is probably a broken heating element.

Titian scr2 keeps tripping breaker


For the breaker to trip there must be a fault. The breaker is probably saving you from being electrocuted when using the water. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BYPASS THE BREAKER. Call a QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN.

I have a KF9000E used to cool a network rack. The unit worked fine last summer. As the weather warmed up this year I turned it on and it keeps tripping the electrical breaker. Anyone have any idea as to...


Run it on fans only and see if it runs. If it does, suspect the compressor. It may be something simple like wetness in the electrics. One component appears to have a short circuit or earth fault. If you can isolate them in turn and switch on until it no longer trips you will know which one is faulty.

I HAVE A FEDDERS AIR CONDITIONER MODEL AED24E7F-C THIS UNIT TRIPS THE RESET BUTTON ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE IT RUNS FOR HOURS OR DAYS ON END AND THEN TRIPS. IT TAKE AWHILE AFTER THAT BEFORE I CAN RESET...


The reset button is part of the cord. The cord has built in arc detection. This is a complex circuit that monitors the unit and senses potentially dangerous sparks or arcing inside the internal components of the A/C (motors, switches, etc.) It sounds like the problem is getting worse - as they usually do. Sparking and arcing happen when dirt, corrosion, etc. accumulates and can result in pitted contacts. All of these conditions only make the sparks and arcs worse. Page 1 of the manual (left column) says this:

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the
reset button will pop up.


Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Check to see if power has returned to the unit

Testing


You should test the Arc Detection Device
equipped power cord monthly, after every major
electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air
Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Press test button. Unit should trip and reset
button will pop up.
5. Press reset button again for use
If above test fails, stop using the air
conditioner and contact customer service by
calling the following toll-free number:
1-800-332-6658 or email:
customerservice@fedders.com

I hope this helps & good luck!

The Reset button on cord keeps tripping, when turned on it works for a minute then trips again


There's obviously there is a short or electrical overheating problems omewhere in the appliance that's causing the circuit breaker (Reset Button) to trip. Stop using the AC unit and have it checked by a professional.

Condesing Unit won't run.Breaker keeps tripping.


check the fuses in you disconnect easy way if you have a meter check across line top L1-L2 should have 208-230, same on load side should have same voltage. if not bad fuse. check and see when the unit starts up if the fan spins. if so fan is probably good. if the units trips as soon as you flip the breaker the compressor is probably shorted or you have a shorted wire. if it takes a good 10 seconds i wold test the capacitor in uF. if you are not good with electric or using test equipment i would recommend calling someone. hope this was some what of help to you.

One year old Danby dac8075ee, HAS NO POWER, what could be wrong ? please help


your air conditioner has no 'power' on it's own. It must get the power from an electrical outlet.

It is possible that the outlet you are plugged into is 'dead,' i.e. not working. One simple way to test this is to plug in another electrical appliance, hair dryer for example to test it and see if it's working.

If you do this and the other electrical device works then you know your AC is getting the 'power' it needs to operate - in which case you have a problem with your AC, and will probably need to call a Service Tech.

If, however, you plug in another device and it - too - does not work then you know the problem is within the outlet, probably a 'breaker' that is off or has tripped off. So, you need to locate the breaker - box.

This "breaker - box" (in most houses) will be located in the garage, utility room, or behind a door somewhere in the house, i.e. kitchen or bedroom.

If your outlet is not working - just go to the breaker box and open the door and look for a breaker (looks like a light switch) that is in the off position or perhaps half way off and half way on. Once you find this breaker - be sure your AC is plugged in and - just flip it (breaker switch) back in the "on" position.

Note: if the breaker switch trips right back off - then you know you have a direct short in your AC and probably will need the help of a Service Tech.

If this is the problem and the breaker stays in the on position and the AC runs and cools - you are probably ok, unless the breaker trips again in a short time span.

If that happens you most likely have a problem in the unit although it's possible the breaker is bad - in any event you are probably in the need of a Service Tech.

good luck!

Air Conditioner works at RV parks but not at home


Your home electrical connection may not be as strong as you may need it to be. The wire itself is probably too small if it's not tripping the breaker altogether. Multiple junction boxes or a lose wire connection. Too far of a run from your panel, all of these can keep enough juice from running your unit.

Samsung Ac compressor stops after 20 minutes and fan keep running. Again after 10-15 minutes if ac is restarted the cooling happens for 20 minutes and compressor stops.


eventually,cycling process is doing done if the thermostat sense the configure temperayure set up it will trigger to stop your compressor motor as well as the blower fan,blower fan independenly to you compressor.if your thingking that your compressor is tripping off,check your operating current on one line using clamp ammeter and compare to the rated current that tag on
motor compressor body,if the current flow is higher than the rated current specified on compressor motor,well problem occured it will trip your compressor,because overload protector is becoming your thermostat.but if you got same current result it was cycling process.If tripping off maybe air is present in your system call qualified ac tech, to purge out air in system.

Maytag Air Conditioner NMPEB08F2A


IF there is a lot of water, the float switch probably tripped. Happened to me, the water motor failed. When this happens there is no water blown up into the evaporator coils and it just accumulates.. and trips the float sensor. 2 problems with replacing the water motor. I can't get the part easily, and you have to remove all the plastic shrouding and drop the bottom out to get to it. (Steve)
