Compressor trip breaker


I hope you have a transfer switch box and not plugging into the washing machine outlet. The breaker switch may be not rated high enough. Check the manual.

Trips breaker once in awhile.Not consistent. Replaced elements, contactors, wash motor. Still trips once in awhile.


check for a bad connection, if there is a bad connection it could draw more amperage then it should.

60 breaker wil. Trip on what overload amps


No exact answer since breakers are not fast-acting.
For example, a short draw of 65+ amps might not trip the breaker... but amp draw cannot exceed the 60 amp rating for very long before the breaker will trip.

Add a comment March 2013 and describe what device is tripping breaker.
Breakers trip when they sense overheating.
This can be caused by too large amp draw, undersized breaker, bad breaker, bad wiring, damaged wires, loose wires, wires are too long, electrical device that is shorted or draws too many amps for the breaker and wire rating.

Breaker trips after bout 5 minutes


Breakers trip because of heat.
When heat from wire exceeds breaker rating, it trips.
Something is causing heat on the wire, wire is too small for the amp draw, there is short circuit, or breaker is bad.
Replace breaker and/or test wire.

Put amp-meter on wire and read amp draw through wire.
Amps cause heat. That's why high voltage lines from power station are high-volt-low-amp so there is no heat loss with long distance transmission, until transformer at home converts electricity to lower volts and high working amps with enough power to run electrical devices.
Same is true for AC and DC circuits.
If amp reading on wire exceeds rating on breaker for length of time, then breaker will trip.
The fact that the breaker lets current (amps) to flow for a period of time before tripping is because the breaker is probably rated for slow-acting, or it takes a while for amp draw to heat the wire.

Following image shows amp-meter that clips over wire to get amp reading.

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.

Rooftop RV Air Conditioner: replaced capacitor on dometic 59516-531 steal trip...


You need to borrow a clamp on style amp gauge, and check amp draw on black wire in box where hydro wires connect. (PLEASE, be careful, and if not experienced in this type of test, don't try it, due to likelihood of getting a shock. ) If it's the compressor kicking in that's causing the breaker to trip, and capacitor is good, then it's usually a problem with either low incoming (supply) 110-120 AC voltage, which will cause high amperage draw, or compressor on it's way out causing high amp draw. If it's only drawing 15-18 amps, and your tripping a 20 amp breaker, then breaker is getting weak.

A/c is drawing 20 amps and keeps tripping breaker after running


If the fan is running and the compressor is getting hot and tripping off you may have a failed capacitor.
