SOURCE: Washer trips circuit breaker

Is washer relatively new? Check circuit breaker for proper size (20 AMPS). Washer must also be on its own circuit. It appears that when the motor starts up it is causing a spike in current (as with any motor), so the breaker is either undersized (Note that if breaker is undersized and you up it to the next size you would also need to replace the wire with the next size up which would be 12/2 with ground), or if you have had your washer a while which I believe is your case the circuit breaker is weakening and is tripping on the current spike. Try swapping out your circuit breaker with a new one and try running the washer again.

Can the motor control board cause the house circuit breaker to trip?


It's unlikely. An internal fuse would blow first, I'm assuming. If you've diagnosed this far you sound capable of continuing. Electricity is dangerous!!! I would remove all things from the board, 1 by 1 plug each component into board until the breaker trips. That should pinpoint what is tripping breaker. I would assume a motor.

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

Replace main control board


Is the wall receptacle defective? Have you plugged something else into the same wall receptacle without circuit breaker activating? Test with another appliance that also has the third round ground prong. If this is not the problem then yes an electrical short exists within the treadmill, inspect the cord itself for loose prongs, there may be liquid damage inside from a previous liquid spillage which would cause an electrical short.

As soon as I turn on my heating unit, it trips the breaker. The heating unit will come on and in a matter of a second, it trips the breaker. What's wrong and what can I do?


Heating element short circuited. Or wires to heater may be loosen or short circuited. Check your breaker also. Sometime, due to defective breaker also it happens.

Dryer Repeatedly tripping circuit breaker, Apartment Maintenance man said we had a defective dryer, Bought new dryer and 5 minutes after first load was put in it tripped the breaker, Maintenance man...


You probably have a bad plug connection, make sure all the wiring in there is tight, you may see signs of arcing. A bad connection causes resistance, and therefore causes the breakers to trip. It is best to replace the receptacle on the wall outlet with a new one because the problem will just resurface again soon.

Two 15 amp arc fault breakers installed on two adjacent circuits. One works fine - does not trip. The afi breaker beside it trips as soon as it is flipped on. We tried switching circuits, but both circuits...


It's possible that the first breaker that you said does not trip - it could be that breaker is failing to trip on a bad circuit. That is, it could be you have a bad circuit but that first breaker is not detecting it and pretends everything is OK. If your new breaker trips on the first breaker's circuit, the curcuit it probably bad and the breaker in not working properly. The most common problem for failed circuits is a stray ground wire in a box somewhere in the curcuit resting against a hot or neutral wire. You'll have to take apart every connection on that curcuit to find it. Not fun.

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.
