The wires are shorted, probably loose inside somewhere and touching steel. these are some of the worst barbecues available in the US; not made well at all. check the power converter connected from the transformer. there is probably a wire loose enough to ground against something near it.

Dryer trips breaker after only a few mins of operation


Check to power at outlet for 220 volts

Check the breaker for the correct amperage cut off.

If the unit had an obstruction in the air flow, it would not trip the breaker.

Try running the unit with just cool air and see if it trips the breaker.

Odds are, you have a defective breaker.
Also, if the home is newly built, check the panel for loose connections at the breaker.
Or you could try a different power outlet, like the hot water heater.

If the unit continues to trip breakers on other outlets, you may have a short in unit.

Reset button ac unit


Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

I "won" a Rainmate from


No, not that I'm aware of. But, the problem itself, may be in the electrical receptacle. A loose wire, a bad connection or interior damage could all cause the circuit breaker to trip. Or it may simply be the case, of line that air purifier is plugged into, is simply overloaded, because of other electrical appliances are on the same circuit of tripped the circuit breaker. Most air purifiers have their on circuit breaker or fuse built-in to the unit. And that, will usually trip before the circuit breaker in the breaker panel of your home.

Here's how you test that theory: Plug the unit into another outlet, that is on an entirely different circuit than the original one and turn it ON. If this trips a different circuit breaker, then you know it's an internal problem with the unit. If it doesn't trip the circuit breaker, the problem is with the original receptacle or the line that feeds that receptacle and it's circuit breaker.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Heat pump breaker tripped now no power to the unit at all


When AC unit trips the breaker it usually means one of four possiblities.

1) the AC unit is causing the breaker to trip, i.e. a shorted fan motor, compressor, or some other electrical component - in which case you will probably need to have a repairman look at it.

2) you've plugged the unit into a outlet that is connected to a breaker which is too small to handle the load the AC unit is putting on it.

3) a defective breaker (not likely but possible)

4) just a 'random' trip and if you reset the breaker it might work fine.

good luck!

Could be a lot of things - but I'm wondering if when you are checking the 'fuse at the plug-in,' are you actually checking the outlet for voltage?

I would check the outlet for voltage; i.e. plug in a hair dryer or something to the outlet and see if it (hair dryer) comes on. If it doesn't then I would check your breakers and see if you have a breaker tripped. In homes - you can usually go to your breaker panel (usually in the garage or a store room, i.e. pantry, hot water closet, sometimes in hallways behind doors) and find the breaker panel.

On a small unit like yours it would probably be a 15 or 20 amp single throw (like a light switch) breaker. If it's 'tripped' it can be in a position that resembles half on and half off, or it can look completely 'off.'

Remember - if it's a 'tripped breaker' - just re-setting the breaker might not solve the problem. There is usually a reason for a breaker tripping - although they do on occasion 'trip' for no reason.

In any event - if it's a tripped breaker - i would reset it and then if it happened again, either within a few minutes/or an hour - or within a day or two - then I would suspect something wrong with the unit and I would need more information, or you might need a qualified technician to trouble shoot the unit.

Note: if the breaker is tripped and when you reset it - it immediately 'pops back off.' Leave it off and call a tech - because you have a direct short and it will have to be trouble shooted.

good luck!

Trips circuit breaker


If the unit is new then the unit may be over-sized for the electrical circuit. If the unit is not new then the compressor may be failing

The power plug keeps tripping. when i press the button on the plug. it just trips.


Either there is something wrong with the unit or you have something else plugged into the same circuit. Air Conditioning units draw a lot of power and will trip a breaker if there is a moderate load on the same circuit. Try plugging it in to an outlet that you know doesn't have anything else on it. The other thing you can do is see what else turns off when the breaker trips, that will tell you what else is on the circuit.

Tripping BreakerS


Same problem as both above. Humidifier trips after maybe 5 minutes. Top of machine is very warm; there's no on/off switch, so plugging in does nothing until the heat dissapates. What's the solution, to just buy a new piece of equipment?
