SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: My new maytag centennial electric keeps tripping

Hi Matt
I'm not sure that swapping out the breakers to higher rated ones will give you a solution so I'll throw in 2 cents to see if my advice holds true. Let's start by asking this. Is the appliance "rated" at 220 volts at 30 amps per leg. I assume this from your post as to what it has been rated. Next - How long is the "run" of wire from the junction box to the outlet where the appliance plugs in? This usually does not matter in most households but if the run is of significant length it may need a larger gage wire to support the current draw of the appliance. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, are the lugs and wire connectors tight at the outlet, the plug, and the breaker box. A loose connection will ramp up the current fast. This is assuming the first two items were met. Tell me if any of this helps and we'll work it out from there.

SOURCE: Clothes Dryer tripping house circuit breaker

If it is breaking the main circuit of the house there is something wrong. It should throw the breaker to the dryer only. It sounds like you are having a problem with a short between the main breaker and sub panel in the house. Is there any way you can move the breaker in the panel to a different place on the same panel to see if it is that circuit only. If not check the outlet and the plug on the dryer and make sure the wiring is connected correctly.

SOURCE: Circuit breaker trips after 10 minutes

could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw

Why does my electric grill trips my breaker

It appears your gfi may be rated for a lower current draw or it may be deffective. You could try changing your gfi to one that matches the 15 amps in your circuit. If this does not work you could try finding another plug around the house that has a higher rating. It would help if you knew the amount of amps your grill draws. Do not change the breaker to a higher rating. The wiring in your wall is matched to the capacity of your brakers and upgrading your breakers without changing your wiring to match the new rating could causes an electrical fire. If you are nor sure what to do contact an electrician.

I have a Dimplex electric grill like the BPC one and it won't come on. Plugged in and nothing happens. It was purchased late summer 2010

If you still have your Proof of Purchase, it's still under warranty. Contact Dimplex USA, Customer Service at 800-668-6663. If you don't have your Proof of Purchase contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service at 888-346-7539. But, before making any calls, check the receptacle that the grill is plugged in to, to make sure it's functioning. If it isn't then the circuit breaker for that receptacle has been tripped and needs to be reset. Reset the breaker without anything plugged into the receptacle. Then plug the grill back and turn it on in to see if it tripped the breaker. Often times, the receptacle itself can be at fault and may need to be replaced.

Hope this helps your solve the problem.

Grill will not turn on

I assume you are referring to the auger motor. If so, have you checked the electric receptacle the g=auger motor is plugged into? Plug another electric appliance, like a lamp into the receptacle to see if the lamp works. If not, look for a tripped circuit breaker in your home's breaker panel. If one is tripped, make sure nothing is plugged into the offending receptacle and reset the breaker. Plug the auger motor back in to see if the breaker trips again. If does, there's an electrical issue with the auger motor or the cord.

If none of the above is the problem, i have included a link to Traeger Industries website. There you can find and download the Owners Manual for your Grill-Smoker, which also has a Trouble Shooting Section.

Main oven trips electric when switched on top oven works fine also grill . did notice that fan was making a noise

If the fuse or circuit breaker is tripping it is most likely a short circuit in the oven element.

The auger on my 9 yr old grill has stopped and my family is not happy! I do not have a Mr Fix-it husband so am on my own. Any suggestions?

Make sure that there electric power to the auger motor. If it's plugged into an exterior wall outlet, unplug it and plug in another electric device (like a lamp) to make sure that outlet still works. If it doesn't, go to your home's Circuit Breaker Panel and check for a tripped breaker. If you find one that's tripped, reset it and try plugging in the auger motor and turn it on. If it starts working then suddenly stops, it probably tripped the circuit breaker again. That would indicate one of three things: The cord from the auger motor may be bad; the auger motor itself may be shorting out; the circuit breaker may be failing. If it's the receptacle or the circuit breaker, I'd advise you contacting an electrician to have them check and replace it. for the Auger Motor, go to Traeger's website home page and look for Trouble Shooting or Customer Support. Better safe, than sorry.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

I open the box and plug the unit into any outlet, the outlet's circuit breaker pop-off within a minute. I turned the knob to off position before plugging into outlet, and the circuit breaker still pop...

There is something wrong with the unit, it should not trip the breaker.
You are going to have to send it back.

I tried to see how many amps the unit draws, but there website is poor
and I don't even see a way to get the manual if you needed one.

Same problem I have. I think the element or thermostat is gone. You will have to replace them. Here are the part numbers repectively:
