When finding a home for any compressor you need to take a few things into consideration. Extention leeds can create a voltage drop. for a standard compressor you will need at least a 40 amp trip switch at fuse board the draw of first start up could be a higher rating than your current breaker

Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

Duo therm ac trips breaker


When compressor for cool tries to kick in, or even when fan only used?
Try it on fan only, not cool, then try cool and if you hear it sort of "moan" then breaker trips, that's compressor trying to kick in. Make sure you have sufficient power coming in to trailer as well, without long extension cord. Get back to me, then I can tell you which way to go from there.

My blade to my circular saw model number 5007nb was having trouble cutting through some wood which lead to it over heating how can i fix this thing and get it to start working tonight


Well you did not really say what is wrong?
Are you trying to stop the overheating, or did it get so bogged down from blade heat warpage, that the internal circuit breaker tripped?
If so, then look at the end of the motor, near the cooling vents, and press the little black circuit breaker reset. (not all have them)
Also check that the outlet still works, by plugging something else into it, because you may have tripped the circuit breaker for the outlet, or GFP.

Condensing unit terns off but won't come back on kicks off breaker


If it runs, turns off, then tries to restart and kicks breaker, look for bad start components. Check start relay, start capacitor. It may be trying to restart too quickly and the compressor over amps and breaker trips. The system needs to have at least 3 minutes of off time before trying to restart. This allows the pressures in the system to balance enough so the compressor can overcome the high side pressure and start. I've seen where people turn the control up and down very quickly causing the compressor to over amp and trip breakers and over loads.
Hope this gets it for you.

Frig keeps overloading circuit breaker, just repaced relay


I think the compressor has a problem with its internal running coil , or it's grounded.To check it you can disconect the power to the compressor and then turn on the breaker , and if doesn't tripped the breaker ,you know the compressor is bad.

My compressor starts up and reaches the desired pressure, but when I have used it for a short time and the pressure drops, it does not kick back on automatically. It bogs down and trips the circuit breaker...


YOUR COMPRESSOR MUST UNLOAD WHEN IT SHUTS OFF SO IT DOESNT START UNDER A LOAD THE NEXT TIME. MOST SMALL COMPRESSORS UNLOAD WITH A VALVE ON THE SIDE OF THE PRESSURE SWITCH.REPAIR VALVE OR REPLACE THE PRESSURE SWITCH (KNOW PSI OR TAKE SWITCH WITH YOU).YOUR COMPRESSOR IS STARTING WITH AIR PRESSURE ON TOP OF THE PISTON. CHECK VALVE COULD BE BAD BUT IT SHOULD BE BLOWING AIR ALL THE TIME.

Ruud heat pump outside unit trips circuit breaker


Check your wiring between the contactor and compressor for a short to ground, or check the compressor windings for short to ground.
With the Tstat off, the contactor should be open so the only way for the compressor to be trying to do anything is if the 110 volts from the unbroken side are traveling through the compressor to ground. Since 110v is not enough to run it, the overload is kicking it out, cooling off, and repeating the cycle. When you kick on the Tstat, the contactor is supplying voltage directly to ground without going through the resistence of the compressor windings and kicking the breaker.
Post back and let me know what you find.
