Question about Kenmore Heating & Cooling

Air conditioner kicks the breaker off whenever it is turned on.

I would like to try to fix it, but need a wiring diagram. Do you know where I can get one for this unit? We think the problem is the starting capacitor.

Ac wont start kicks breaker why.

Either the breaker rating is too small for the air conditioner or the unit is defective. Choose the right size breaker for the air conditioner power requirements and ensure the wire size to the unit is correct.

Keeps kicking breaker

Your unit is pulling too much power which is popping the circuit breaker. Either the compressor motor or Fan motor has a problem and you need a pro here. Drawing excessive electrical current is not good and you can do even more damage to your unit by continuing to try and run it!

Whenever i try and turn on unit the breaker pops?

You need to check the maximum amperage the A/C units pulls and compar it to the breaker amperage. The breaker amperage needs to be greater than the A/C amperage. Also A/C's draw more than the rating when they first kick on, so a 15 amp A/C should be on a 20 amp breaker and so on.

Breaker box clicks on then air conditioner still running but warm

When you say breaker box clicks and then warm air, are you referring to the actual breaker switch in your power panel, or clicking at your ceiling assembly? When the breaker trips, the air conditioner should shut down completely, is that what happens? The compressor kicking in and out could cause circuit breaker to trip. Did the electrician record incoming voltage supply, and what was it ? 115 volts?

Breaker kicks as soon as it is set wont stay set need wiring diagram

Is it the breaker for the outdoor unit, because if so then chances are good you either have a locked up compressor, or a grounded compressor.... a locked up compressor can sometimes be freed with a "hard start" capacitor, but a grounded compressor is a completely failed one

My RC air conditioner (Duotherm) kicks the circuit breaker every time I turn it on. It used to kick the circuit breaker every so often, but lately it kicks it immediately if I try to turn on the AC.

Try replaceing the start or run capacitor to the compressor. If no help you can install a start assist capacitor, it helps to start a tight compressor.

Air conditioner does not kick on when I turn down the thermostat

What kind of a unit is it? Is it integrated with a furnace in the attic? Need to now this information. Also, turn the thermostat to Cool/Auto and go outside to see if the condenser unit is running, if so, then there is a problem with the indoor blower motor or thermostat. Jumper the green and red wires on the thermostat and see if the blower comes on. If so, you have a bad thermostat. If not, you could have a bad fan motor or capacitor.

Panasonic cs-pw9gke i need wiring diagram

Split A/C-Cold:

You need four wires(two #10 and two #12) to the outdoor unit, leaving you house, and three wires(#10) coming from the breaker to tye indoor unit inside your house.

Split A/C-Cold and Hot:

You need five wires(two #10 and three #12) to the outdoor unit, leaving your house, and thee wires(#10) coming from the breaker to your indoor unit inside your house.

This ypical arrangment(all of them use three wires fro the breaker), yet there are other units which may require 6-7 wires connected to the the outdoor unit depends on the added features to the unit.
