The refrigerator is trying to start so start relay and start capacitor and internal fan is our focus.Ok if the doors on refrigerator were closed during this time all the parts will get rust on them so we need to unplug and begin these steps when you are ready, I am here just let me know for sure the model and make match the numbers above your post. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Our travel trailer keeps flipping a breaker when we plug in 2 space heaters at a time what could be causing this?

Two heaters may exceed the capabilities of the wiring.

As you say only the plug breaker, move the other heater to that spot to see if the one heater is faulty. Also try plugging a kettle or similar to it. The breaker may just be weak.

If you are using propane heating, it must be a properly fixed appliance, not freestanding heaters because of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Where do you have it plugged in to? Is it plugged in with 30amp plug to receptacle. Which breaker is tripping, the one for AC only, or the main breaker for trailer, or breaker at plug in?

Heat worked fine all winter. Turned on A/C and blew a fuse. Replaced 3amp fuse and worked for a few minutes and blew another fuse. Checked all connections, filter, obstructions, need help...

If your blowing fuses then you have something grounded or shorted. By grounded I mean a wire has come loose and is touching the cabinet or a part that allows it to go to ground or your motor, capcitor or compressor is shorted.

Maytag MDB7130AWB dishwasher blows circit breaker.

These have been known to leak water into the door panel. If so the water can cause a short. Your breaker is keeping the machine from lighting up. Check any seals that may have been braeched in the door. Start at the dispencer latch

My Maytag MTF2172HR* keeps blowing the fuse

You guys are gonna LOVE this one.
I called a local appliance repair man, who said it sounds like the compressor.
He went on to tell me if it was the compressor, I would have forked over $75.00 to him, and, now need a new fridge, as it's probably not worth to replace.
I was a bit angry, so, deciding what to do, I started snooping around the back of the fridge.
Everything back there looks brand new, and clean, so I was starting to think it wasn't the compressor.
I put in a new breaker in the circuit panel, and, still blew.
As I was behind the fridge, I grabbed the power cord, and felt something strange- looked down, the power cord was cut through and twisted, exposing the little wires inside, and, visibly crossing them.
So, I'm going to go to the appliance store, and see if they have a replacement power cord.

Dead micro

It could be a bad in-line circit breaker fuse. Unplug the microwave and take the outside cover off. Look for the in-line circuit breaker fuse. Use a plastic fuse puller (not your hands or a metal tool as there is still voltage stored in the microwave even when it is unplugged). Look at the fuse and see if it is blown. (The metal wire running length of tube will be broken. If you have one, test with an Ohmmeter.
