The compressor may be old or the starting capacitor is weak. Could be bad connection on the AC supply line or pitted contacts on the run relay. Check all AC wiring supply connections even in the house electrical panel for tightness, Replace the starting capacitor first.
If it still has a problem install a hard start capacitor kit. Could even be a bad breaker - breaking out on a lower current draw.

SPLIT AC CONDENSER TRIPS AFTER 1 OR 2 MINS, ONLY DURING THE DAY TIME


The condensor is not cooling fast enough. Try cleaning the condensor coil. Also check that the fan goes on. At night the outside temperature is cooler and does not need much work to cool down the condensor.

Hello I would add a HARD START KIT to the run capasitor (if there is not one already).This makes the compressor come on easy.If the breaker trips during running time the pressures are too high,hose off the condenser coil (fins).The unit might be slightly overcharged but I would be careful before adjusting the freon at all.

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).

Unit shuts off on hot days


It may be low on refrigerant. On hotter days, the compressor has to run longer to reach the temperature you have on your thermostat. Have it checked for the proper refrigerant charge and have them test how many amps that the compressor is pulluig as well. With the proper breaker installed, the unit should not be tripping out. Make sure that the breaker that is in there now is actually the proper one for your unit.

Domestic a/c runs fine for hours then trips circuit breaker


Check the difference between your incoming voltages at these times, it may be, if your plugged in to park power, the voltage getting to you may be less due to neighbors using more. If you have a genny, try using it when this happens and see if it trips. More lights, TV's etc are probably being used at night by others.
