    Sorry, new to this and should have added details. My heat pump is tripping the breaker constantly. It is drawing over 28 amps, when rated for a max of 20.

If you are over drawing amps on start up and the breaker trips then you probably have a locked or"sticky compressor. You can check this by looking at the sticker on the compressor it will have a rating called LRA(locked rotor amps). If it your amp draw is at this or above this number then your compressor has locked up. Now if it reads lower than this then it needs helps starting. Either way you can try a hard start kit. Just follow the instructions on the package; they have just two wires to hook up: one will go to c on the capacitor and one to herm if you have a dual capacitor, If you have separate capacitors for the fan and compressor it just goes on the compressor capacitor. Easily identified by the higher rating. Now if your high rating is during run time then you should replace the compressor capacitor and see if your amp draw falls in line. If it doesn't you most likely have a bad compressor.

Pump motor windings may be drawing too much current. Use ammeter to confirm.

If so, then the motor needs to be replaced. However, try running motor without pump for amperage - if the latter is binding, that could slow down the motor appreciably and be responsible for the high current draw.

Put meter probes at in put terminal of the element if you read 220volts that mean your relay is good. if you got it there use amp meter on one leg of that element. You should read some amp draw there but if there is no amp draw it mean the element broke.

I have a Rheem heat pump/air handler; it draws 2.9amps with only the fan running, 13amps when the heat pump is running and 38amps with the heat strips on. My question is why the unit draws that many amps...


Sounds like it must be about a 2.5- 3 ton system. The 13amps has to be the compressor draw -normal. and 38 on the strips- normal. 2.9 fan -normal.

You may want to check your wiring to see where the outside unit gets its power. Theres nothing inside that can draw 13 amps. That almost has to be the compressor power wire.

AC draws more current in hot mode


If this is aheat pump or reverse cycle unit that amps in heating is to high. Should not go over nameplate amps in heat or cool. Sounds like maybe two things. Overcharge and stopped up coil on the inside air handler. The reason for the high amps is in heat the head pressure is higher than normal. So check the coil inside and have the charge checked because that compressor wont run long pulling that much amps over nameplate. Keep in touvh Rus.

Heating element drawing lots of power, big bill power


Well a dryer heating element does draw quite a bit of amps(that is why it is 220) but it cycles on and off & it is not an appliance that is used everyday. The first think I would do is read the electric meter and verify that it was not misread before condeming the dryer. If the electric meter reads are correct then it is possible it could be the dryer heating element shorting. How much do you actually use the dryer? Is the heating in your house electric and have you been using it? You could also have your electric company test the meter. Look at your usage of electricity for last year at the same time(it will be on the bill) and see what the number was.

Rheem Heat pump 5 ton heat strip 10KW what


I would say this is around 75 amps of draw at max for both the compressor and heat units. . Therefore--at least 90 amp breaker, and probably 100 amps for good measure, and at least #4 or #2 wire to the unit.

Mr slim unit


Let me try to send you to a quick fast electrical course on wiring size vrs amp draw it can carry before it burns into. The breaker box can send out the rated amps the wire comming into the box its sized for. (example. #3 can carry 10 amps) then it is distributed thru breaker thru the wires to the loads amp draw. depends on the maxium rated amp draw of the load, the wire can carry a certain amount of heat or amps. Ceck the max. rated amps or heat draw it can carry to size your wires & breaker,! thank you very much!
