My heater regularily trips my electrical circuit breaker the model no is hm2000t. I bought it about 10 years ago but because of this problem It has been in a cupboard for 9 years. Should I throw it away

Good day!!!

if your machine will trips the breaker every time you plug it in a split seconds only...

that problem is cause of shorted parts inside...The common parts that usually have a high risk of shorted is the heating element itself...

please try to compare the price of your machine to the parts you need to buy...if the price almost the same or too close....I suggest you to buy the new machine because if you replaced the parts and still persist or you have another trouble cause of short circuit..

Thanks for using fixya...

Hi i have a rheem super quiet 80 attic unit.. the heat is not working.. the unit will not power up and circuit board is not lit

Hello, if the furnace does not work at all the main thing to check is your line supply voltage. low voltage and fuses. Make sure the circuit breaker is not tripped and verify that you are getting 120 volts to the integrated control board at the L1 nd neutral terminal at the board, if not most likely the breaker is tripped, secondly make sure that the fuse on the unit is good, usually it will be on the integrated control board if it is a newer furnace or on the side of the furnace at the switch box if it is a older furnace, make sure the fuse reads 0 ohms with your meter. Lastly check the transformer, check Resistance on both sides of the transformer and you should get resistance, if not replace transformer, let me know if you have any further questions I will be glad to assist you.

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.

DeLonghi oil heater model HMW2400TG 10 years old. Suddenly started to activate the safety electrical switch 2-3 seconds after being switched on.

one of three things are common causes of this problem ...most likely, dust builds up enough to block air flow then the unit will overheat inside .. that will trip a thermal breaker .. the breaker will reset when the unit cools .. if that problem continues then it may trip a permanent breaker .. if that happens the unit will stop working .. take the unit outside and blow the dust out of it with air pressure.. .. another common problem is if the fan bearings start to freeze then the fan wont run fast enough to maintain proper air flow .. lubricate the fan front and back bearings with light machine oil or sewing machine oil .. don't use WD40 or oil containing teflon .. the lube life is about 5 years so yours is way overdue for oiling the bearings if you haven't done so yet.. a third problem that is common is the electrical connections inside the heater are made with crimped on rivets .. the rivets loosen sometimes with age and a hot spot is created at the loose connection (you might even see sparks there) .. that can also trip the thermal breaker and is generally not repairable at reasonable cost ...

Suspect that a 15amp heater tripped the 15amp breaker. this happened a couple of times. now when the 15amp breaker trips a 20amp breaker also trips. the heater is now unplugged and the 20amp can be reset...

You Know for a 15AMP unit it really should be on it's OWN sub-main, Ordinary House sockets are usually only 10AMP rated. This WILL overload any normal household wiring. You also need to get this unit checked out. to see if you have any "Earth leakage". Also at 115volts and 15Amps that equal a 7.66 OHM load....Be careful.

Starts to run. Then pops CB in about 2 seconds. Ignition is OK. I think it momentarily lights off. REDDY HEATER made by DESA of Bowling Green, KY

Hi, when a circuit trips that quik, it indicates a dead short somewhere or even a motor drawing way to much amps for the breaker to handle. If this heater is a forced air type, try and find the wiring that controls the blower motor and disconnect it for just a few minutes to test it. You may want to do this with other control componants one at a time, just by- pass each one by unplugging or disconnecting each one and start it. If the breaker holds when you do this, you will then know which part is causing the breaker to trip. Keep me posted on your progress.

Have a 155000 btu ready heater

It sounds like the unit is tripping the breaker because the breaker is not rated high enough to handle the heaters power usage! If its not that then it may very well be the thermostat needs replaced in unit!
Test at a friends house to see if its your system or the unit!

Installing a Dayton G73

How many amps is your service? And what gauge wire did you use for the heater?
If your service is only 40amps that is your problem. You don't have enough amps for the heater and the rest of your house, you will have to upgrade your service.
