Treadmill flips breaker after staring up for about a second?


An overload causes the breaker to open. First: The motor might have a bad field winding or internal partial short: Second: A bearing on one of the rollers may be shot? You can check for this by simply walking on the tread. It should move, if not there is a bad bearing. A far out reason is that the breaker is opening at less than rated current. (failed breaker). If you have a long heavy duty extension #16 gauge wire (18 gauge minimum), try another outlet that you know is on another breaker.

One light is amber the other green....when threshold is crossed light will not turn on automatically


To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage, you must START with the lights ON. If you don't want that feature and you want to turn it off, you must START with the lights OFF.



To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.



To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

Sears Craftsman key pad is about 20 years old. Need to re-program code. I know you hit a few numbers then the 4 digit code but I can't remember the #'s.


If it is a wireless keypad do this:

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.


If it is hardwired do this:

To program the keypad, first unplug the garage door opener from the electrical outlet. Next, remove the nameplate from the console that the keypad plugs into and locate the program/operate switch. Flip the switch to program. Next, enter your desired four-digit PIN number into the keypad. Slide the switch back to operate and plug the garage door opener back in. The keypad should be programmed.

My water is not hot and discovered the panel breaker tripped. the panel breaker keeps tripping for the water heater and will not reset either.


Problem could be a shorted element. Disconnect the wires from the breaker and try to reset it, remember to flip the switch in the fully off position before moving it to the on position. If the breaker doesn't trip then the problem is in the heater itself. If you have access to an Ohmmeter, with the power turned off check the continuity of the elements across the screw terminals and from the terminals to ground. There should not be a reading to ground and a high resistance across the terminal screws

on the back of your garage door opener there is a colored learn button--press and release-the learn indicator light will glow for a short time usually 30 seconds. within thirty seconds press and hold the buton on the hand held remote that you wish to operate your garage door. release the button when the motor unit lights blink. if you don;t have a light, two clicks will be heard. it has learned the code. procedure will be different for multi function control.

Air compressor flips breaker before it will start?


Air compressors tend to draw more power as they age, however, will not trip breaker unless some malfunction. Here are some simple tests. Unplug compressor and turn the pump by hand, you may have to remove a cover to do this. It should turn freely; any resistance could be failing bearing (would make noise) unloader/check valve leaking allowing back pressure to pump, or failed start capacitor/start winding. Easy test for checkvalve. With pressure in tank loosen discharge hose at tank and check for air leak. Check valve should hold pressure in tank. Replace as needed. Failed capacitor/s will cause high amp draw. Remove from circuit and test. UF reading should be within 95% of printed rating. Finally, most air compressor motors have two windings, start and run. Power to windings is controlled by flyball switch inside rear of motor. This switch has contacts that can stick in start position and cause high amp draw. Examine windings for signs of overheating. Copper windings generally have color of new penny. Very dark brown windings bad news. Gook luck
