SOURCE: What would cause a 1200A CB Main at exterior

Well 1000 amp stuff is out of my league, but I would guess it is possible the main circuit board might have sensing ability to detect a wiring problem. Perhaps the 3 phase polarity is wrong, the 4th ground pole is not making good contact, or something. With that much amperage, it could be the main needs more grounding rods spread further apart, and make sure you run an explicit ground wire between pump and main. Don't rely on ground rod at pump. Too many people get electrocuted that way.

Kenmore elite dryer runs for about 3 min. then trips the breakers


The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.

From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.

I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.

With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.

Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.

Air handler circuit breaker


WITHOUT ANYTHING TO LOOK AT I WOULD SAY HE CONNECTED HALF THE LOAD TO ONE OF THE PHASE WIRES AND THE OTHER TO THE OTHER PHASE WIRES , PHASE WIRES MEANING 120/240 SINGLE PHASE , SO IF THAT IS THE CASE TAKE THE WIRES HE HAS BUNDLED TO ONE PHASE OR ONE TERMINAL ON THE BREAKER AND THE OTHER TO THE OTHER TERMINAL OF THE BREAKER IN SOME CASES IT IS NECESSARY TO CONNECT THE WIRES WITH CONNECTOR, APPROVED TYPE AND THEN TO THE BREAKER TERMINAL ,THIS JUMPER SHOULD BE RATED THE RATEDING OF THE BREAKER YOU ARE INSTALLING ,GOOD LUCK
