Tcl 770 keeps triping power


Check to make sure the breaker is rated for the current draw of the dryer. If it is, you MAY have a bad breaker. Replace your breaker and If the dryer is still tripping the breaker, your dryer needs to be repaired by a qualified technician.... the heating element is probably burned up and shorting out.

Walkin frezzer keeps triping breaker


First thing I would do is remove the wires to the relay on the compressor and check it for shorts between the pins to the frame. Probably a shorted compressor or it could be the relay itself but I doubt it.

Kenmore dryer trips the breaker


THE PROBLEM COULD BE THE CONNECTION TO THE BREAKER ITSELF , BREAKERS ARE SET UP FOR CURRENT OR AMPERAGE SURGE AS WELL AS THERMAL IF THE WIRE CONNECTING TO THE BREAKER IS LOOSE IT WILL HEAT UNDER LOAD AND CAUSE THE PROBLEM YOU DESCRIBE , TURN OFF THE BREAKER AND RE TIGHTEN THE SCREWS AND IF THE TERMINALS ARE DETERATED MIGHT NEED TO REPLACE THE BREAKER IF POSSIBLE CUT THE DAMAGED PORTION OF THE WIRE CONNECTING TO THE BREAKER STRIP THE END AND RECONNECT

Our kenmore 697267 keeps tripping it's circuit every 5 minutes or so... what's the problem with it? Is it dangerous to just keep resetting it?


definatly a prob if tripping breaker every5 miin, resetting breaker is not good for either the breaker nor hte dryer, that would be hard to determine why without actually looking at though, i would probably calll someone to have a look at that one

Clothes Dryer not working


if it is tripping the breaker right away there is an issue with the drier shorting to ground. unplug and look for a broken wire in the drier. if the drier runs for 10-15 min maybe 30 before it trips the breaker. there is a loose connection in the wiring. either at the junction box in the wall behind the dryer or at the breaker panel. If it is in the electrical I would call an electritian. Good Luck!
