What causes caravan aircon to trip circuit breaker on start up

My first guess would be that the compressor has seized. If not the compressor seizing, then I would look for a short to ground in the wiring. If you pull the cover of the AC you will most likely find that the compressor motor is plugged into a receptacle. If you can unplug or otherwise disconnect the compressor motor from its' power source and activate the thermostat to run and the circuit breaker does not trip, it is the compressor motor. If the circuit breaker trips, then it's in the wiring.

Kenmore central air conditioning unit tripping breaker each time we turn it on.

The breaker tripping when you turn the unit on indicates a 'direct short' and 99 out of a 100 times the short will be either the outside fan motor or the compressor itself. Either way - you will need a qualified serviceperson to diagnose this problem correctly and make the needed repairs.
Best solution is to call AC person.
However, here's a good way you can get it down to either the fan motor or the compressor.
(1) With all power OFF - disconnect the wires to the fan motor
(2) turn on AC unit (a) if breaker trips it means the compressor is probably the shorted component. (b) if breaker DOES NOT trip and the compressor runs - it means the fan motor is shorted.
(3) If breaker tripped with the fan motor disconnected meaning the compressor is probably shorted you can then (with ALL POWER OFF) 'disconnect the wires going to the compressor' and re-connect the fan motor wires. Turn on power - and if fan motor runs (with compressor wires off) you know it's the compressor that is shorted.
After all this you will now know which of the two (compressor or fan motor) is shorted.
If it's the fan motor you can with 'limited mechanical experience' change the motor yourself, but if it's the compressor you will need to call a serviceperson because of the expertise needed to replace the compressor.

Trips breaker and will not cool or heat

Disconnect compressor leads and tape them up. Restore power, if the breaker does not trip, than you have a grounded compressor.

If breaker trips again, hook compressor up and disconnect blower, if breaker does not trip you have a
bad blower motor.

The light on the control board if blinking 6 times, how do I get rid of it? the light is saying VH VC. David Stowers

I think that you need to turn off power to the unit and reverse the 240v wires that are on the transformer,I think that the polarity it backwards,I had a similar problom with 2 york units,good luck!

Compressor kicks in, trips the breaker.

It is a 1977, usually with age the compressor gives out. You should check the power coming into the compressor, going out of the compressor, check the clixon on the compressor make certain the wires are not touching, how long has it been since the capacitor has been changed?

Condenser board gives me 6 flashes says vc ch tripped

When you can your cover off your control panel look on panel for Troubleshooting lights. Sometimes the board itself has the codes. Low pressure or high pressue or maybe sensor failure. Different board diferent codes.
