    If it is a compressor problem, is it repairable or just go get a new air conditioner?

Inspect the capacitor for failure. if it is not swollen or leaky then the compressor might be gone.Air conditioner pop and then blew refriderant or s - 264f733.jpg

    With the price of ACs like they are today verses the cost of labor and parts I would say get a new unit.

Why does the reset button on my air conditioner keep popping out when i plug it in


You are tripping that outlet's breaker. Either too much is on that breaker and circuit or that circuit is not big enough, enough current to power that unit.

My Maytag Portable Air Conditioner Model #M6P09S2B keeps popping my breaker. Can you help me solve this problem?


This can because by a couple of things. An electrical fault within the AV Unit or the electrical circuit the unit is plugged into has other electric appliances on the same circuit. Thereby, overloading that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another outlet that is on a different circuit. If it trips a circuit breaker then, the problem is within the unit. In which case, you will need to have the unit checked and serviced.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Trips circuit breaker


If the unit is new then the unit may be over-sized for the electrical circuit. If the unit is not new then the compressor may be failing

Exact same thing happened to me


the 20 amp circuit should more than handle a 6.5 amp load, the 6.5 is the rating of the operating AC not of the circuit that is required to be attached to it. If the "pop" noise is the breaker tripping the circuit may be miswired, the unit mayhave a short to ground, as the circuit breaker is designed to trip on an over amp situation or a situation where 20 amps is exceeded. Di you verify that the circuit voltage id correct, eg: 220 volt or 110 volts. and that it matches the unit nameplate.

Furnace keeps tripping circuit break


Furnace. To confirm use an Ampprobe or other brand ampmeter and see how much current is being drawn. If it is more that 80% of the breaker rating, it si for sure the Furnace.

The power plug keeps tripping. when i press the button on the plug. it just trips.


Either there is something wrong with the unit or you have something else plugged into the same circuit. Air Conditioning units draw a lot of power and will trip a breaker if there is a moderate load on the same circuit. Try plugging it in to an outlet that you know doesn't have anything else on it. The other thing you can do is see what else turns off when the breaker trips, that will tell you what else is on the circuit.

AIR CONDTIONER TRIPS CURCUITS


Possible loose connections on the wires to the breakers,
or in the unit. loose connections casuse the wire to overamp and trip the breaker.
Also it's possible the breaker it's self is bad.
there ar also other possibilites but the 2 formentioned is the most common cause.
