Samsung AC keeps popping breaker

I have a Samsung model # aw12ec87 air conditioner that is 2 years old and reside in central Colorado. In the last week, my AC keeps popping the breaker when I put it at 68 degrees, so I tried 70, 72, 74 degrees and it still pops the breaker.

I have done everything I can think of. I clean the filter everyday cause I have cats and dogs. I have also removed the front panal and cleaned inside there very careful and throughly. Also, tried a brand new extension cord, as well as other outlets in the house on different circuit breaker. None of that has help solve the issue.

The last two summers I have had no problems putting the AC temperature as low as 64 degrees. You have any other suggestions I can try? Thanks!

    I do not have a power outlet near the window the AC is in. I tried a heavy duty extension cord yesterday and the circuit still popped. So puzzling since I never had problems with it the last 2 summers.

Our bedroom Samsung AC died last night-really need it


Samsung AC died, really need it.

If the air conditioner blew a fuse or a breaker was tripped in the house, then reset the breaker or replace the fuse.

If the air conditioner fan works, and it's blowing hot air, then the freon level may be low in the air conditioner's piping system.

If the air conditioner is less than 30 days old or within the warranty period, take it back where you bought it for a replacement.

If it needs recharged, contact an a/c repair place that can recharge it.

Actually, new air conditioners cost around $100 which is very reasonable considering how it affects comfort and safety in the room it is used.
These are a few ideas that I would think about if I were in the same shoes as yours.

Good luck fixing it.

Inspect the wiring and the terminals. There may be a short circuit somewhere. If you have a tester, you may check the continuity of the two wires. Test the wires after the breaker, the part that goes to the unit.

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

When turning on central air, our main electrical breaker is tripping. This is a brand new home barely over 1 year old. Should the AC have a warranty not covered by a builders contract??


Builders give a one year warranty but your air conditioner has five years on all parts. Anything outside the unit is not covered under the ac warranty. Breakers,stopped up drain and dirty coils.

AC tripping breaker.


Check its wiring connection. Could be loose connection, corrosion.Or the breaker is already retiring. If the breaker is fairly rated to the aircon unit. Also insect could be the culprit.

No central air


Check for power to the outdoor unit. Just because the contactor closes does not mean line power is available. Look for a tripped or turned off circuit breaker, possibly fuses if your residence is much older.
