GFI's and motor's don't get along with each other,if the motor is just the slightest bit of any moisture,the GFI will pick it up as a ground...Try to run it without the GFI.

Do you have anything plugged in? If they keep tripping with nothing plugged in I would call a electrician to troubleshoot or replace the breakers. They may still be under warranty from Siemans.

Usually trips breaker but occasionally works fine....when hooked to higher amp breaker line works fine.

What size line should i run to a 60 gallon air tank 375 feet from electric box and keep it running correclty, i have 10 gauge now and it gives a few good starts then it trips the breaker switch. It is a...


you need to run this compressor on a cooker trip (ei:30 amp) it pulls far to much power for a house hold trip (ie:15 amp) even if close to a 13 amp plug, at 375 feet???? thats some loss in the wire, over 50%!!!!! if it trys to start on the low loop.s it pops your trips!! right? hook it up to your cooker trip, but its still a very long hick for your power to get to,,
ps,,,this compresor never come with a three pin plug on it did it? like 3.7 hp = 4000 watt's app at the plug!
you could try puting a bigger starter (cap) on the motor that will hold more amp's for starting up on
and it will give your motor a longer,,,kick start,,,
talk to your frendly sparky first! ("caps," can and will kill you, if you tuch a charged up one!!!! so dont play with them) hope this helps you out

My HP HDTV trips my circuit brakers


1) Try with a different surge protector. The oine you're using could have a short-circuit
2) Try without a surge suppressor, at least for a day
3) Does the circuit breaker trip when something else starts running? Your microwave, fridge, dishwasher, etc.?

4) Check the user's manual of your TV, under SPECIFICATIONS. Check for "POWER REQUIREMENTS". If the power requirements listed is greater than 15 Amps or 1,700 Watts (assuming you live in the USA and your household is 110-120V), then the circuit breaker will almost always be triggered by the TV. Most circuit breakers inside a house are 15 Amps.

The only option you have is to replace the circuit breaker for one that has more Amps, but doing so on your own without having and electrican check if the wiring will hold the extra load is extremely unadvaisable. You may end up with an electric fire in your hands.

Problem with my dryer


unlikely a fault with dryer. try plugging another high consumption item into the socket you use for the dryer ie elec kettle or iron. see if breaker still trips and if so you have fault in socket or house wiring. if you put a plug on the dryer yourself, check you have wired plug correctly
