Circuit braker keep popping

Sounds like the heating element has gone out again. Once you reset the circuit breaker and the tub turns on it will start to circulate the water. This usually runs like this for about 2 mins and then the tub will recognize it is cold and send power to the heater. If the element is back at that point it will blow the circuit breaker.
If this circuit breaker pops as soon as you turn it on then you most likely have a bad circuit board.

I have a rheem 40 gal electric water heater. The GFI on the tank keeps popping do you know what could be causing this

Your tank has a GFCI circuit breaker?
Maybe you mean ECO reset button located on upper thermostat?

If GFCI circuit breaker is tripping, turn power off, open covers inspect for burned parts, and test elements. Copy following link for troubleshoot walk-thru:

If ECO reset button is tripping, then replace both thermostats, and test elements.

I would shut down the heater and have a look at the filter,sonds like it may need to be changed.

Next have a look at the heating elements and vacum them off once heater cools down.

Walk In Freezer won't start up

It sounds like your drain heater is the type that should be deadended. Power makes the circuit between the material it is made of. It is to just be warm, not hot. I've not seen this in some time but that's how they used to work.
Generally speaking, walk-in freezers have bunches of controls.

go to this web site as it will cover the M series unit. Do this first and if you are still having a problem, get back to me.

Chances are that your element is drawing too much current. Check the manufacturer's website to make sure that you have the correct size breaker installed. Low water flow could also affect this, so make sure all of your baskets and filters are clean and clear.

Swimming pool cleaning robot doesn't move

Sound like your filter is dirty. Try backwashing if you have a sand filter, or clean your cartridges if that's what you have. A dirty filter will reduce water flow, which in turn affects the Nav.

Curcuit breaker pops

hello elanalex,
When your heater shuts off it trips your main breaker and that is usually associated with the interupt capacity of the breaker ( which means that while your heater is drawing current, if the thermostat says stop.. you are interupting that current demand abruptly and your getting a surge back to your breaker, You may be able to add a surge arrestor to that power feed to suppress that problem. You may also be able to repsecify your main breaker with one that has a higher interupt capacity.. Check with a local electrical supply house..explain the problem and they should be able to provide a hardware solution. Make sure you provide details on your circuit breaker brand so they can provide the proper solution.. GoodLuck
