SOURCE: Microwave blows fuse

The most common suspects are the high voltage transformer and the magnetron. It's also possible you have a flaky door switch or loose door switch mount. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

SOURCE: AC breaker trips after 10 minutes

Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)

SOURCE: keeps tripping the main breaker on the electrics

Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but this is a sign of an electrical fault. Specifically, what trips the main breaker is leakage to earth (ground). You need a qualified electrician.

What causes caravan aircon to trip circuit breaker on start up


My first guess would be that the compressor has seized. If not the compressor seizing, then I would look for a short to ground in the wiring. If you pull the cover of the AC you will most likely find that the compressor motor is plugged into a receptacle. If you can unplug or otherwise disconnect the compressor motor from its' power source and activate the thermostat to run and the circuit breaker does not trip, it is the compressor motor. If the circuit breaker trips, then it's in the wiring.

Rv airconditioner trips breaker


Does it trip when fan only , or when compressor for cool cuts in? Sounds like capacitor perhaps . Get back to me with model number, and whether it's a ducted system, or blows out at ceiling assembly.

The fan will not engage when unit is turned on and after 5 or so minutes the circuit breaker trips.


since the fan doesn't run - the compressor heats up and pulls excessive amps and trips the breaker.
99 out of 100 times your fan motor will be bad.
You need to replace the motor.

Breaker trips on unit. Fuse in house is ok. As soon as AC unit turns on it trips the breaker outside next to unit.


you have a 'direct short' - most likely the compressor or fan motor.
you could isolate it to one or the other by (be sure all power is off) disconnecting one of them and turning the unit back on.
For example if the fan motor is shorted and you disconnect it - the breaker will hold and not trip and the compressor will come on - which will tell you that you need to replace the fan motor.
If you do this and it still trips the breaker then reconnect the fan motor and disconnect the compressor and try that.
If the breaker holds and the fan motor runs then you know the compressor is shorted.
Note: the fan motor can be replaced with not a lot of trouble depending on how mechanically inclined you are - but the compressor will take a qualified serviceperson.

Hi, my fridge freezer keeps making the electric trip out. help!!!


Hello,

Try this:
Turn your thermostat as warm as it will go, you are trying to isolate the compressor and keep it from turning on. If your fridge has an "off" position, then turn it off. Reset breaker, plug refrigerator back into the outlet. If the fridge trips while "off", then you are likely looking at a damaged cord / wiring.

If the breaker doesn't trip, unplug the fridge, and move the thermostat to the warmest position possible. Plug fridge back in, If the breaker holds, then you are on right track. Slowly move the thermostat to a cooler setting. You want to just reach the point where the compressor tries to start. If breaker holds here, then you are in good shape so far. It indicates a problem with the defrost heater (if equipped), or the ice maker (if equipped). If the breaker trips as soon as the compressor tries to start, your compressor may be damaged (bad and expensive).

Breaker keeps tripping on outside air conditioner unit


The compressor is probably drawing to many amps. Breaker could be weak also.. Need to check the amp draw on the compressor.

If the breaker is hot when it blows, the compressor is probably going bad.

Air conditioner trips circuit only in the evening?


first off, it's illegal to release freon into the atmosphere. the epa could charge you $32,500, so keep it under your hat. second, if it's getting too cold where the evaporator coils are icing up, it's too lille freon, not too much. as for the breaker tripping, your compressor might be wearing out. if it's pulling too much current, the motor is failing and the compressor needs replacing. and do not do it yourself unless you're certified by the epa to move freon and have the proper equipment to recollect the used freon.
