SOURCE: goodman heat pump trips sometimes no know cause.

20 AMP Circuit, huh? More on this below.

The tech probably didn't put a hard start kit on, but if he did, I hope he added the resistor to the start capacitor, or you could have a problem in the future. He probably put a soft start on it, a 2 wire device which looks like a capacitor. But only you will know for sure (or he.). As for warranty, manufacturers don't care about soft or hard start kits. In fact, they like 'em, because they extend the life of the compressor, which keeps them from having to pay for a new one.

I would be concerned with a 20 AMP circuit for anything higher than 2 tons. Take a look at the nameplate rating on the side of the condensor and tell me how many Running Load Amps (RLA) this unit is supposed to pull.
Also need to know your line voltage at the condensor, with the unit running.

SOURCE: I have 60 amp circuit breaker on my electrical a/c

You're unit is a 31/2 ton according to the numbers.Normally, breakers will only be in a half way posistion when tripped. Yes, under most conditions, the fuse will blow before the breaker trips. I have seen this many times, the breaker may be weak, burned, loose wires and so tighten wires, check the condition of the breaker.It sounds like the breaker even though it is 60 amps, is the problem and you should replace it with out hesitating. This will solve you're problem. When you pull the breaker out, look at the metal clips that snap in on the buss bar to see if they have been overheating.And the buss bar its self. You will know. I am sure this will take care of you're problem. Good Luck,

SOURCE: breaker tripping to a/c unit,

You have a high voltage short (most likely) or the breaker is bad.
Turn power off to outside unit and remove service panel.
Look for any arcing or burned wires. Look down in the unit as well for these signs.
If you have eliminated the breaker as the problem and do not see any of the above signs, then the fan motor or the compressor is going to be the problem. More than likely the compressor. This will require replacing the compressor to repair the problem.
Hope this helps.

You need to check the current rating of your heat strips. If it is more than 60 amps then you need a bigger breaker. If 60 amps or less then your heat strips are going bad. Also make sure your fan turns smoothly without any wobble.

if the breaker has tripped the test button won't do anything ,, for the breaker to trip something down stream of it is causing this to happen,, check all the switches and or receptacles in the circuit that are controlled by this breaker, 3 types of line problems cause tripping,, ground to line, Line to line, and line to neutral. in this ,, also consider that extension cords, faulty appliances , ( lamps, radios, anything plugged in with a feedback short ) will cause the breaker to trip. even a nail to hang a picture that pierced the wire can cause this, add to that , a AFCI breaker will trip much more easily than one thats not, or even a GFI breaker, , try this, if you have the knowledge to do electrical work in a panel, if not get someone who is, switch the tripping breaker with another one of the same value, ( in this case 15 amp) see if the one you put in place of the one thats giving you problems trips. If it doesn't, you have a weak or bad breaker, so just replace that one, if it does, your going to have to trace out that entire circuit to find the reason for the feed back into the panel

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.

Hello, my heat pump is a 4 ton unit, it heats ok but it keeps tripping one of the breakers, the 40 amp cooling breaker. I have put a new thermostate, it keeps running after the breaker is tripped and the...


Hello Jack,

Let me see if I have this right. Your heat pump keeps triping the breaker that is going to your airhandler. The Heatpump is on its on breaker and can not trip the breaker on your air-handler. However, the 40 amp breaker is to you heat pump its self (the outside unit). The thermstat is not the porblem as all it does is call for heat or cool. The problem can be one or a cobination of three things the contactor, the run capcitor or the breaker is weak.

The first thing I would do is replace the breaker as if it has tripped more than twice it needs to be replaced. Then I would look at the contactor, it is located underneath the service panel it will have some low voltage wires on the sides and a black and white wire running to it from the disconect box. If you notice the contacts are chared (little copper points in the middle of the contactor) I would replace it. If the contactor looks good I would remove the capcitor (carefully not to touch to contacts at once as they hold a charge) and take if to the local parts house and have it tested.

I hope that I have asnwered you question and you are able to take care of the problem. Thank you for using FIxya and do not hesitate to ask more questions.

My electric furnace keeps tripping the breaker , it will run for about five or ten minutes then trips.


If you dont have an ampmeter it is hard to tell whats going on. First check the breaker and see if it is getting hot. If so turn off power get a screwdriver and check to see if wire are tight on the breaker. Loose wires cause breakers to trip. If the unit has ran before and it has not tripped the breaker and it hss just now atarted replace breaker but do not put a larger one in. Check the size of your heat strip in Kw or what they call for on the size of the breaker. 10 kw no larger that 60 5kw no larger than 30. 15 kw has a 60 amp and a 30 amo circuit. Let me know whats going on.Rus

Breaker keeps tripping


If the breaker itself is more than 15 years old, replace it. If it continues to switch off, check the amp draw of both the inside and outside unit.

Ben, you are on the right track. To upgrade the breaker, first look at the main house breaker panel and determine if allowing more current through main breaker will be taxing it too highly (will 20 more amps exceed my main breaker limit...what is the main breaker current trip at?) Then look at the wire size leading away from the 40 amp breaker to outside. If it is 6 gage copper or 4 gage copper-clad aluminum wire, you are ok to upgrade. Any smaller wire size could be unhealthy.
