Sounds like motor has failed. If the red light is blinking it may be telling you what is wrong by the number of blinks. It maybe locked out for some reason or loose wire. Try turning off breakers to inside unit for 5 mins and try again, this may reset unit. But it sounds like a bad motor or circut board. Try running with stat in on position instead of auto in cooling mode.

Hi I am sure this model number is correct and it is a 3 Ton unit.Normally when the breaker trips as soon as you reset it, the compressor is compromised. Happened to me yesterday on a 5 ton heat-pump. When this happens, what you can do if you are a handy type of man, is to prove this. I don't know if the is is a split system or a all in one package unit, doesn't matter. Get to the compressor compartment. Of course the power will be off.If you can see the run capacitor, take a screw driver and short across the terminals to discharge it, as it could have a small amount of juice in it, I doubt it. Anyway, remove the plastic cover to expose the terminals. They can be hard to remove sometimes, just use a screw driver to push the clips in. Wire colors should be black for common, yellow for start, and blue for run. Write down the order they were in. To be safe, tape the metal connectors so they wont touch metal when you turn the power back on. After you have done this, turn everything back on. If the breaker holds and everything else is on, fan and so on, this proves the compressor is probably shorted to ground. If this a/c is rather new, I would replace the compressor. If it is old, I would think about getting prices on a new unit. Just food for thought. Please let me know on the out come of this test, please. When a compressor shorts out, or locks up, it draws what is called locked rotor amps/LRA which could be from 49 on up, and your breaker can be 25, 30, 35 to 40 amps so it will trip. Keep me posted and do this test, it is very easy to do.

SOURCE: do bryant condensing units have
Most Bryant units do not have a reset button but could have a low pressure or high pressure switch for a safety to protect the compressor. Verify power from the thermostat to the contactor by following the thermostat wires all the way to contactor inside of electrical compartment... TURN POWER OFF BEFORE OPENING.... If power is to contactor and contactor is pulled in then you would need to look at the capacitor of which is a canister about 6 inshes tall with wire terminals on top.. this part should be flat on the top and if it is rounded then thats your problem.. if not then contact a local company to troubleshoot and make necessary repairs.

SOURCE: The circuit breaker for the
It is tripping for one of two reasons. Either the a/c unit is pulling too many amps or the breaker is weak. If you have an amp meter then check the amp draw on you a/c, if it is pulling more than 24 amps then you need to have it serviced. If it is not pulling that many then you have a weak breaker and need to replace it.
