That 300 amp breaker must be controlling both your hot water tank and some heat strip somewhere in your house which is designed to either prevent a pipe from freezing or melt ice on the eves of your roof.

Titian scr2 keeps tripping breaker


For the breaker to trip there must be a fault. The breaker is probably saving you from being electrocuted when using the water. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BYPASS THE BREAKER. Call a QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN.

You have an electrical short, it some time forms at the heat strip after years of use the small wires break and cause a short. You need to replace the heat strip, and or it might be a bad breaker. There is really need no other reason for the short.

I've changed out my central heat and air ,with a larger unit , after 5 weeks working fine ,now if my air conditioner ,hot water tank and stove is on along with a few minor appliances my main breaker trips...


No,you can not wire directly to a meter. All wiring must come through the circuit panel or sub panel.
150 amps is sufficient to run what you describe. You may have a weak main breaker or loose wiring to these appliances. Place a amp meter on a incoming supply wire at the main, while you monitor amp draw have someone go around the house and turn on all these appliances. If it trips at less than 140 amps you have a bad main.
I suspect you will find a bad neutral wire on one of these appliances.

Tripping breaker


There is a short circuit in the fan motor or compressor most likely. Disconnect the common wire to the compressor and try again. If the fan comes on and the breaker does not trip you have a bad compressor or a bad wire touching somewhere. Also,check the capacitor. Is it bulgded out or a burned wire? Could be a bad capacitor.

Heat pump cutting off and knocks out power to house.


Wow!.
Wires buzz where, What are the hooked into? On he heat pump? At the breaker Box?

I would have electric company check incoming pole lines & transformer. Was there a bad electrical storm in your area?

You may also have a bad Main breaker box, Is it out in the weather? Terminals may be corroded.

Pulling power from other breakers means you have a dead line or low voltage/amps on that line, Or a dead short That much power you should see welding & melting of wires.

Good Luck! Be very Careful. MSG me back let me know if i can help more.

Window unit trips circuit breaker


If your Plug is getting hot there is a voltage drop where the heat is generated. On these wall outlet recepticals there are two different methods of connecting the wires. First they strip the end of the wire and plug it into the back of the receptical . The second method is to strip the wire and attach it to a screw terminal . This is the best method for any outlet with a motor running from it.

For an example draw a straight line and then draw a circle that comes in contact with the line. Look and see how much contact area you have where the circle touches the line.

Heat pump trips circuit breaker


I seem to have the same problem. But when I reset the breakers, they won't stay in the on position. They go back to the off position. What gives? It is 95F inside the house.
