SOURCE: Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker

Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

How to reset a cutler hammer HMCP E Breaker


Well, you should first - stand off to the side (not in front of any electrical panel, or device) when re-energizing a circuit breaker/switch, etc... Use your off hand, not your dominant hand when doing this. Reason is, if the breaker/switch blows up or out - and it happens to burn your hand (hopefully not...) - you will still have your good hand to work and get around with. Also, look away when doing this too - which will protect your eyes and face. This is why you DON'T stand in front of these electrical devices when turning them ON. Now, stand off to the side of this breaker/switch - look away, and using your less dominant hand - first turn the breaker/switch OFF (listen and feel for it to click in the OFF position)...then, turn the breaker/switch back ON. This should re-energize the breaker! If it trips again, then leave it in the TRIP position - and ask for further help. You'll need an experienced electrician to troubleshoot the problem. On this particular breaker - the two 40amp breakers are together, and the two 30amp breakers on the outside are together. When turning these OFF, and back ON...turn the two 40amp breakers OFF together, then back ON - and do the same to the two outside 30amp breakers as well. What you have here is what they call a Quad Breaker (4poles/circuits - which take up two spots in your electrical panel). So, you have a 2 pole/circuit...240 volt/40amp breaker - inside of a; 2 pole/circuit...240 volt/30amp breaker. This is most likely running a dryer and a range. Either way, SAFETY FIRST! I hope your problem is just a tripped circuit breaker! Also, make sure whatever you are trying to re-energize again - is ALL OFF!!! If your breaker trips again, disconnect ALL appliances involved - and then try it one more time! If it trips again, then call a licensed/certified electrician! Best of Luck to You...:)

I have a rodgerblack gold treadmill ag-10302 when i switch it on at wall it trips the circut in my fuse box help please


1) please use a table lamp in connect in wall circuit. if the c.breaker trip again, the problem is your outlet wall. Call electrician or test the wires for touch each other or ground improperly, and fix it.
If the circuit is NOT trip, test the power cord for defective 2) test the main switch for shot circuit 3) test the c. breaker for defective 4) test the motor see the if the motor if short circuit see my personal TIPS for help motor , see the diagram attached. 5) test the output board, the board can be short circuit and replaced. Happy NEW YEAR God bless you

Chainsaw trips circuit breaker


Does the circuit breaker trip before squeezing the switch? Check the power cord - there's a short

Does the chain move freely before squeezing the switch? If not, and the circuit breaker trips while squeezing the switch, your chain is too tight.

Bottom line - tell us when the breaker trips and what you were doing when it tripped.

Hi, I don't know what the reset switch on my dimplex ofc2000ti looks like, anyone any ideas? Power to unit but not heating up, all connections inside fine. Hopefully it overloaded and tripped.


Turn the Master On/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall receptacle. Leave it unplugged for 12 - 15 minutes. That should give it enough time to reset itself. Then plug it back in and give it a try. Also, make sure that the wall receptacle is working properly and hasn't tripped the circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel. If it did, something is seriously wrong electrically, with the heater.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please don't forget to rate my response to your question.
Thanks!

Plug the new fan motor, nothing


Sounds as if the Fan Switch may also be faulty. Or the new fan motor is defective. Is the flame function on the electric fireplace working? If the flame function is working, than obviously the fault is either in the fan switch or the new fan motor.

If the motor has a regular receptacle type plug on the end of the cord, try plugging it directly to a wall outlet and see if it works. If you're able to do that, then the problem is in the fireplace's fan switch or in the wiring circuitry going to the fan motor. Perhaps, this is what was wrong all along and not the fan motor, itself.

If nothing is working, check the wall receptacle that the fireplace is plugged into, by plugging in an electric lamp. If the lamp won't turn on, then there's a circuit breaker tripped in your homes circuit breaker panel. Check the circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker and with nothing plugged into the offending receptacle, reset the breaker. Plug the fireplace back into the receptacle, turn it on and see if it trips the circuit breaker. If it does, there's an electrical short some where in the fireplace. Look for burned or frayed wiring, as well as bad connections.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Went to switch oven on fan works when you turn the temp knob it trips the trip switch every time help


HI, Sounds like your from the UK
If you are referring to a trip switch as being equivalent to an American circuit breaker. (Electrical safety device designed to shut down power to an electrical appliance). Then we are on the same page.
Do the following diagnostic procedure:
1 SHUT DOWN THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE OVEN. I.E. THE TRIP SWITCH/CIRCUIT BREAKER.
2 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced. It is probably tripping the switch because it is shorting out somewhere. There is also the possibility that the internal wiring connectors to where the element is mounted into the oven walls is broken off and short circuiting against the oven chassis (walls). That being the case, it may be just a wiring repair in which you install new appropriate electrical contacts and re-connect the element.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Switch stuck in trip mode


The reason why the breaker stays tripped is a result of a direct short. Unplug every electrical device plugged into an outlet in both rooms and try the breaker. If it stays on, individually start plugging in each device until the breaker trips, that is the defective device. If the breaker stays tripped, start checking wall outlets for short circuits with an ohm meter. If you did not find a short, check your hard wired lamps and appliances for shorts. If you did not find any shorts the only other problem is a shorted pair of wires in the wall or ceiling. You will need to disconnect any hard wired lamps and appliances and check for shorts between individual pairs of hot (black) and neutral (white) then hot and ground. I have a short circuit finder, but you do not need one because the technology is not perfect and you may have to manually check for shorts with a meter anyway which never lies.

Eaton Arc Fault Breaker type BRAF tripped. I reset it but lights will not work. Ideas please?


My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.

I have red, metal, beige, and black wires in my ceiling. how do i hook up my Glendale fan?


If you could give me the specs on this (voltage and amperage), I can begin to help. Also, I would need to know what the values of the wires in the ceiling are. Meaning...is Black or Red wire's a Hot wire or switch leg. To find this out. First turn off the circuit breaker(s) at your electrical house panel. There could be two circuits, so make sure to have a voltage tester, or a little induction voltage tester that will help determine if power is on or off. Also, turn your wall switch off designated for this fixture. Now, leaving the wall switch off. Make sure to do this with two people. Turn on the circuit breaker. Either the black or the red wire will be hot (unless there's other circuits involved, which I don't think there is). Once you determine your hot wire, write it down. And then turn on the wall switch. Now, the other wire should be hot now. This is your switch leg. The wire that will operate (on and off) your fixture. Beige is most likely your neutral wire, and will go to the white wire(s) at the fixture. And the metal wire is your ground wire, and should go to your bare copper wire inside of your fixture. So now, turn everything back off (including both your circuit breaker and wall switch). So, Hot wire goes directly to your wall switch. It might be easier to hook up your switch leg first, because then the wire left over will go to your switch. So, Hot wire hooks up to wall switch. Other wire coming from switch, hooks up to the other colored wire (switch leg). The beige wire stays at the fixture and hooks up to the white wire(s), and then the bare copper wire splices (connects) to the metal wire from the ceiling. After you have everything wired, and the fixture put back together. Here's how you test it. Leave wall switch in off position. First, turn the circuit breaker back on. If everything is fine, then you turn on the wall switch. Note: If you're able to leave the fixture in the on position prior to turning the wall switch on - do so. That's why if there's any problems, you'll be a safe distance away. And the worst that could happen is that you trip the circuit breaker. Then, you'll have to recheck everything you did, and make sure all your connections are secure. Well, Good Luck to you, and feel free to ask me any further questions you may have. Jim

Tripping the circuit breaker means that something is shorted out. A fan motor or the compressor, most likely. Disconnect the compressor or turn the thermostat up so high the compressor doesn't start. If the breaker still trips, the fan motor or its capacitor are the problem. If the breaker stays on, the compressor or its capacitor are causing the problem.
