Question about Heating & Cooling
Trips the breaker with all devices disconnected
You have an opencircuit possibly at the wall outlet. Shut off breeaker, pull off outlet cover and take out plug unit. Check to see all wires are secure and no indication of burning or melting. Any black marks indicate an arc of electricity has occured. If suspicious, replace plug with new one.

it is normal for a breaker that is run right on the edge (50 amp and your furnance to use 45) to get weak after a while . the first thing you should do is change the breaker with the same type and amp rateing . it should take care if it

The problem is that when u add up the electrical draw from all of these appliances running full bore, your draw exceeds your available amperage. Now you are doing the math and saying no...... Let me tell you why. It is rare to find a situation where a 100 amp service actually porovides 100 amps. You almost always have voltage dropo. And when you are adding extension cords to the mix the drop is even more. That said, When you are using the AC try to minimize the use of other appliances, especially the microwave which is a big draw too.

If the fan is running and the compressor is getting hot and tripping off you may have a failed capacitor.
