The use of 2 15amp breakers first had meaning. If you can relocate with one tandem 15 amp it means that there will be no protection cuase the tandem tripping point does not count.

SOURCE: How many arc fault breakers

There is the National Electrical Code rule and the rule applied by your local municipality. To be on the safe side, you should check with your local municipality. The 2005 NEC called for protection on outlets in bedrooms only, but the 2008 version calls for many other rooms to be protected. Again, it depends on what your municipality wants in the way of protection. At a minimum I would believe all outlets for bedrooms should be covered.

SOURCE: I have 5 AFCI's )(type

There have been many problems with these breakers... with this type of problem being common, but not the only problem...
Sometimes the breakers will not reset for no reason at all...other times there may be a problem, and that will be hard track down...
There are a few things that I would do to get to the bottom of the problem...

First option may be to buy a new breaker and see if it works....if it works the old ones are bad...simple...

Or... unhook the black wires from the back of the breakers and see if they will stay on...if so then rehook the black wires one by one and turn on the breaker till you find the bad circuit that is causing them all to trip...this will be time consuming, but may be necessary in either case...

Also check that all white wires to the breakers are hooked properly and the screws are tight...

True model t-19f freezer trips breaker as soon as it is plugged in.checked compressor. Good. Wired in hard start kit. Still tripped breaker.defrost? Or thermostat temp control?

if it is an immediate trip prior to the compressor attempting to start, you will have to start tracing the wiring and look for the cause. These issues can sometimes be very troublesome and difficult to find. If the compressor is tripping the breaker, the winding can be shorted internally to each other. Also, be sure the current relay is functioning properly. A generic 3-in 1 kit has a relay, overload, and capacitor and is easy to install. Cheapest way to replace start components.

Probably after years of use the optional light kit plug has become loose from the vibration. To fix this, turn off the electricity to the unit (circuit breaker is best) take of the bulbs and globes and reove the lighting kit from the bottom of the fan and look for a plug/socket combination and check to see it is secure. There will be many wires and if a remote controlled unit it maybe confusing as to which wires are which yet all should be secure. Retighten the lighting kit, replace the globes and bulbs and turn on the breaker and try again. Good Luck!

The above Interlock kits are vastly overpriced. As long as the upper right hand breaker is available to use as your generator link, the kit should be good to go. Save the extra $100.
