You have a air pressure switch on the compressor. When your tank gets to a certain pressure it will shut down until the pressure drops below a certain pressure. More than likely you have a bad pressure switch, the contacts are probably stuck in the closed position which would explain why your tripping the circuit breakers. You should be able to go to the Campbell Hausfeld site to identify and order the switch. This is something you can change out yourself, it is a simple R&R

    The pressure relief valve is something different. That will relieve the pressure in the tank if it builds up to high. (it could rupture the tank) If that valve is bad, your compressor will run all the time, (because the valve is dumping all the pressure) or you will rupture your tank because of too much air pressure. (thus, the air pressure relief valve)

Mine is doing the same thing. I was told that I needed to check the pressure relief valve, but I don't know where it is located.

98 civic overheated,then now will not start ,turn the key and just wines ,wont turn over


Try turning the motor over by hand, with a
socket & long breaker bar or ratchet, on the
crank damper bolt

You may have a broken timing belt & the valves
are jambed against the pistons,from what your
saying the motor is frozen & the starter won't turn it

Excessive current draw when motor first starts could and most likely does cause this breaker trip. I would check wiring connections to motor, check cold motor start up amperage draw, also breaker may be the issue (weak bimetal spring).

Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to www.searspartsdirect.com

Washer starts to spin up then trips breaker


Good day,
Not the transmission. The motor could be stalled by a defective transmission, but the motor would trip off on it's own internal long before the home breaker.
Sounds like a short in the motor itself. But ......
There is Murphy's law.
Your home breaker might have become so weak, it IS the problem.
You really need an amp probe to check the washers draw, at the circuit breaker panel.

If you cannot do that and are comfortable dealing with electrical, you can swap equal value breakers, to be sure.

GE DVLR223 dryer wont start....breaker is not tripped


check all the connections on the back of the dryer, if a few screws are loose, that could be the problem.....now the other thing....it might need a new motor. Unplug it before checking it out!!


Clean out your vent hose and the outside of the Vent to prevent fires.

Cooler keeps on triggers breaker


If it is tripping the breaker, stop plugging it in. The breaker is tripping because something is wrong, and continually resetting the circuit WILL cause a fire. Either return the unit, or have an electrician look at it. You can also try plugging it into another circuit in your house to isolate the problem, but please don't repeatedly reset the breaker, there IS a problem somewhere.
