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.

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.

SOURCE: My breaker trips when the outside unit tries to turn on. The inside furnace runs. I cut the inside unit off and the breaker doesn't trip. I manually turn on the outside unit by depressing the cont
Hello, there is a short to ground somewhere, check all the wiring from the inside un it to the outside unit and make sure nothing is touching metal.
