Refrigerators are not recommended to be plugged into a GFI outlet. Depending on the age of the fridge there will be spikes in the current the fridge uses at certain times causing the GFI to trip. A GFI outlet is much more sensitive to current than a non GFI outlet that is tied back to the the regular breaker in the electrical panel. Pleazer Appliance...

Simoniz S2000 XE02 internal cct breaker keeps tripping after 30secs tried to get a parts break down but that info is really ****** and nothing on line anywhere. Any idea what causes the cct breaker to...

First be very careful because the unit is protected by a ground fault internal circuit interrupter and may trip if there is a short circuit to ground. Even a very small short circuit will trip the circuit breaker.

Something else: If you are plugging it into an already existing ground fault outlet then that may also cause one of the breakers to trip.

Like I first mentioned, if you don't know what your doing be very careful. Electricity and water are not friends, especially if the circuit breaker is tripping.

Good luck,

Jeep cherokee 1995 problems

Hi Douglas, I'm glad to help. The park switch is located inside the motor assembly and the most likely cause for the wipers not parking. Their our other things that can cause this problem such as a bad ground on the motor. Before replacing the motor assembly, do this first. RUN a ground wire from the negative battery post to the motor assembly and see if it parks properly, if it does your done, if it doesn't, if it were my vehicle I would start with the motor assembly first. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Douglas!

Horizontal lines pop in sound on certain channels

Check all of your ground screws on the boards that you replaced. Sounds like that once the set is getting hot, the board is expanding and shorting out on the screws.

My 12 inch jl sub makes one loud pop when i shut off my truck off why is this?

The "pop" that you hear when turning off the system is caused be the amp not shutting down clean. This can be caused by several things -like a poorly designed or built amp. It can be caused by a poor chassis ground cable, poor line voltage coming into the amp, or a malfunctioning amp (if it didn't used to do this before). It may also be caused by the line-out signal coming from the head unit. If the head unit has a problem with the pre-amp section and sends the "pop" signal to the amp, the amp will just do what it's told to.

I would recommend starting with making sure that you have a solid power and ground connection from the battery and to the chassis. Next, I would try turning down the amp's gain if it's set too high and see if that helps.

Amana air conditioner keeps popping its cord breaker

This a ground fault breaker. They do go bad. Is it kicking it all the time or when you plug it in. I replaced a lot of the ground fault plugs. You have to go to the Appliance Parts store to get a new power cord. If you have a problem with thisyour warranty should cover the power cord check your warranty. Rus

Power and charging failure

I suspected the damage cause is inside. It might have some spark inside that affect the wires.

I you want to replace your power adapter send it to the service center near you. Just tell them that its not working. (If under wrranty replacing of parts is free of charge). If you tell them that you accidentally broke it, it replacement is not free of charge due to user fault.

1 channel w/ intermitent cracking & popping

If it happens more when it warms up, It probably needs two transistors on the amp board. not the main output transistors but the pre driver ones.
