Did you replace it with too light a cord? If it's lamp cord it may be producing too much resistance and causing the breaker fault. Does the cord get hot? Try a higher gauge cord.

    This is a really wierd issue you have going on almost sounds like your breaker could be going bad. I have seen that also. The way to check is to make sure each leg is 110 or 120 volts if one is 120 and the other is 117 replace the breaker

Spa just stopped threw circuit breaker replaced fuse still no power


I assume you mean you replaced the Circuit Breaker...?
Spa Breakers are typically "GFI " types... they will trip if they sense power going to ground. Please confirm this.
Is this a self contained unit with a plug in Cord? Please confirm this.
Did you install this unit yourself... including the electric?
If you installed this yourself, then kill power, and disconnect the power from the spa and see if breaker still trips.
without knowing the size and ampacity of the system, I cannot instruct you to safely troubleshoot.
Self contained units with a 20 amp conventional plug... would not know unless we get specific "year-Make-Model"

How do i fix my dewalt 55155 air compressor


It is a 15 amps motor and will need 6 times (90) that amount of amps to start up. Plugging it into a 15 amps circuit may work but a 20 amps circuit is more apropiate. Kitchen circuits are 20 amp circuits.
You can try plugging the compressor directly into the wall and see if it refills with air without trippiing the circuit breaker. Using an extension cord should be done with a #12 or #10 wire gage type, smaller type will cause a power loss in the cord and will cause the compressor motor to trip the circuit breaker.
Power formula is I square R, or the amps multiplied by itself and by the resistance of the wire. E.G. 90x90x4 = 3200 watts. This is at start up. To find the voltage drop divide the watts by current, 3200/90 = .... get the point? Keep voltage drops to a minimum, use heavy wire gage extension cords.

My roper refr is not runing, it trows the breaker, if you turn the breaker on it makes no noise just trows it out in 2 sec.


It is likely that the compressor windings are shorted and when plugged in, throws the breaker. Check to be sure the cord is in good shape, too. Remove the connections from the compressor (mark them so you can replace) and tape them off. Plug it in and see if it still trips the breaker. If it does not, the compressor is shorted.

No electrical power


You must find the reason the main breaker is popping ...

I'd start by unplugging everything and remove all breakers. Turn the main on ... does it pop? If it pops here look between the breaker panel and the end of your cord. Turn the power off - reinstall the first breaker - turn power back on. What happens ... keep doing this until the main or individual breaker pops - investigate that circuit to find your short.

If you get all breakers back in with out popping anything ... start plugging stuff back in. Something is shorting somewhere.

Let me know what you find please.

thanks

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Dryer Won't Power UP


IF you find that you have only a 3 wire feed for this dryer (and the reason for the 3 prong receptacle)...then you can not properly install a 4 prong dryer cord to it. You now have 2 choices....either rewire (assuming that it is a 3 wire supply) the entire run from the dryer breaker to the outlet location with 4 wire (typically a run of 8/3 with ground having a black, red, white and bare ground)and install a 4 prong dryer receptacle to match the configuration of the new dryers cord.....OR - you can remove the 4 wire cord and replace it with a 3 wire cord....re-using the ground strap - IF it is still in place.

Amana air conditioner keeps popping its cord breaker


This a ground fault breaker. They do go bad. Is it kicking it all the time or when you plug it in. I replaced a lot of the ground fault plugs. You have to go to the Appliance Parts store to get a new power cord. If you have a problem with thisyour warranty should cover the power cord check your warranty. Rus

Keeps tripping circuit breaker everytime on plug the power cord in


2 common, possible problems. 1 - there is a "short" in the plug - easy fix - replace either the cord or plug - not expensive. 2 - bad control board - not so easy, not so cheap. Is it brand new, used? Also, it could be a bad "internal breaker" - not easy!

Hot leg of power supply cord melted


This is almost positively caused by a poor electrical connection. If the connections at the cord to the dryer are good and tight, check the receptacle that the cord plugs into. Turn the breaker off, remove cover or receptacle, and tighten all connections. If necessary, replace the dryer receptacle along with installing a new cord.
