SOURCE: Tripping circuit breaker

if the dryer trips the breaker right away its a problem with the dryer if its after a while its the breaker. call an electrician to make sure the wires are secured tight to the breaker and the breaker is rated correctly. i can almost guarantee its the breaker.

SOURCE: After self cleaning, Range trips circuit breaker when using convection

self cleaning ovens use super hot seting to bake the oven clean and it sounds like it melted a wire and it is shorting out the oven on that setting. look at the wires you can see or easy to remove panels

SOURCE: HE4 Kenmore Dryer tripping Circuit Breaker

If you put a light load in the dryer will not trip the circuit at all. That means heavy load made the motor work harder and over heat, it going to trip the circuit , pretty soon, the motor will be warn out.

SOURCE: Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker

Your fridge should draw no more than 5amp. Presuming your breaker is at least 15amp there's a problem. Move to a different circuit first. If the condition persists check the start relay on the compressor. I have a suspicion the circuit may have another item you are not aware of.

Sorry to read about your problem
Your F10 code means Runaway Temperature and f30 means open probe connection. try this and see problem comes back.
1. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
2. Now, restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on.
3. Check to see if the error code is still displayed on the range.

My Kenmore 96313402 range keeps tripping the breaker - I had an electrician check the breaker - it is alright. But he measured the amps each element is using and all elements combined the range is using...


There are 2 reasons why a breaker trips one is overcurrent i.e. the current flowing thru is greater than its rated capacity or if there is an earthfault causing the same condition. You have to establish which it is.

From what you say it would seem as if the total current exceeds that of the breaker capacity. In which case you can either ensure not all elements are used at the same time or up rate your circuit and breaker.

Whirpool Range suddenly tripping the circuit breaker


It could be one of the elements is shorting out causing the breaker to trip. Try using one burner at a time to see which one causes the short.

The past Few days the microwave would trip the breaker. today I went to use it and it worked for 30 seconds when I checked what I was heating and turned it bakc on and it would not work


Microwaves that are either built in, a part of the oven, or over the range are on a dedicated circuit by law. This means nothing else could have tripped that breaker but the microwave.
If it has a problem severe enough to trip a 20 amp breaker several times, it is only getting worse each time you reset the breaker and turn it on.
There is a possible chance of fire. I recommend you turn the circuit breaker off and replace the microwave. Is it a plug in, or over the range type?

Maytag continues to trip the breaker


Hello citrusfruit
Hello ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


Sounds like you have a short circuit in your electric range!
What is the model # ?
How old is this range?

You will need a good service tech, hands on for this!
Let me know how it goes,
Huuum

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old range


Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
Please do not for get to give a rating before you sign off!
Thank You, HUUUM
