Sounds like you either blew a transformer, have a bad circuit breaker or blew the main fuse in the outside disconnect. If the indoor unit is still blowing air (no matter what temperature) start looking at the power supply to the outdoor unit. From the circuit breaker, the power will go to a small box located within a few feet from the outside unit. This box will have either a lever on the side or you will be able to open the box and pull out the fuses. From this box the power goes to the condensor. The first thing you should do is to turn off the breaker to the outside unit. Flip it back on and if you have a call for cooling, after about 3 minutes the outdoor unit should start. If it does not, shut off power again to the unit by switching off the breaker, go outside and pull out the fuses in the disconnect box. Using a multi meter, check for continuity thru the fuses. If you have continuity, call your technician. If one or both fuses show no sign of continuity, replace the fuse(s). Make sure that the thermostat is working and sending a signal to the indoor air handler. You may be able to check this by turning the fan switch to "Fan" and see if the blower turns on. You may just have a bad thermostst. Caution should be used anytime you are near electrical components. If you do not have the skill-set required to test electrical equipment, leave it to a proffessional.

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: my ac circuit breaker keep tripping

If your outside condenser has a locked rotor or short circuit, than the unit WILL trip the breaker - as it should. On the other hand if a breaker is tripped a few times it will have less of a capacity that the rating, (this is designed in it). You will need to determine if the unit is locked (and broken) or the breaker has become too sensitive.

SOURCE: Carrier a/c tripping circuit breaker

I believe you are tripping the breaker because you are too close to the capacity of the breaker based upon the distance from the panel to the heat pump. If you are electrically skilled you could check this by measuring the distance and then looking at the standard to see. If this makes little sense to you, you may need to have an electrician check for u. Either way, good luck with it.

SOURCE: keeps tripping the main breaker on the electrics

Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but this is a sign of an electrical fault. Specifically, what trips the main breaker is leakage to earth (ground). You need a qualified electrician.

I just installed a Carrier Mini-Split and am getting an E2 error code. I have already replaced both boards in the outdoor unit IMP and Main PC with no luck. Any suggestions?


This is a Zero crossing detection error. This is alarm signal when the main chip can't detect over zero signal. When such failure occurs, the main control board must have fault.

At end of washing machine fast spin the machine trips my electricity circuit and TV switches off along with other appliances. Can you tell me what's wrong with machine?


This tells me that you do not have an overload situation. There is a short, and/or one or more faulty breakers possibly including the main breaker.
Even an experienced DIY'er with electrical knowledge would probably contact an electrician at this point. If there is a potential problem with the main breaker then it is best to get professional help.

Not familiar with this particular unit, but whenever the breaker trips it indicates a problem with the compressor motor. Check it for a short or ground.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher trips the 60-amp main breaker but not 20-amp.


Its possible that there may be load on that circuit from other appliances. Had an issue myself with stove and laptop on same circuit.
Check other appliance attached to the 60amp circuit (microwave, stove, kettle etc)

LD3600WV MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER


I'm not sure what your question is - since all you did was put in a model number of a circuit breaker.

If you need to reset this circuit breaker: 1) Slide the handle to the OFF position. 2) Slide all the other breakers in the panel to the OFF position. 3) Stand to the side (not directly in front of the panel) 4) Slide the handle of the main breaker to the ON position. if it trips, there is a majot fault that should be addressed by a qualified person (electrician).

If the main breaker does not move to the TRIP or OFF position: 1) One by one, starting with the double wide / large value circuit breakers, slide the handles to ON. 2) Any breaker that goes to TRIPPED or OFF should be attempted to be reset ONCE. If it trips again, an electrician should be called, and the breaker left in the TRIPPED or OFF position. 3) One by one, return the handles of the remaining circuit breakers to ON.

If you're looking for different information - please provide as much detail as you can. Include the breaker panel manufacturer's name and model - and the circuit breaker data.

Breaker keep flipping offf is this normal. What do I need to do. IIts Hard to flip back on.


No, that's not normal. It could be a problem with the breaker, or (more likely) it's tripping for a legitimate reason --- something's wrong with the wiring or something plugged into the circuit. You should call an electrician, but you can do a little trial and error. If this is the main breaker, then turn some of the branch breakers off to see if you can isolate the conditions under which it occurs.
