If it happened fast then it is more than likely shorted fan motor, compressor or wire. Need to check for short to ground with Volt Ohm meter.

Just replaced a bulb now have no power at all


Depending on age of home you may have a spark arrestor circut.
if you used incandescent bulb and it failed ( reason you changed ) it could have trip this circut breaker on main panel ( usually will have green toggle ). Turn breaker to full off then turn back on.

It turns on and builds pressure but at times stops because the circut breaker for my house trips off.


if the house circuit breaker trips ,it indicates an excessive current draw for the machine
could be a faulty start / run capacitor or partially failed motor.
have an electrician check it out

Main residual circuit breaker trips fridge approximately every 12 hours


normal fridge takes 7- 12 amps to start, if after 12 hours it trips i would lean towards a compressor issue. once it heats up the comp. may draw alot of amps causing it to trip. is it the only item on that circut? does it still trip being alone on the circut?

Compressor will not start without tripping breaker?


Circut breakers trip due to a short circut or an overload. In this case the likely cause is an overload. If your compressor is drawing more amperage than the breaker is designed to allow, the breaker trips for safety. Possible solutions. Try using a different outlet with fewer appliances or tools on that circut. If the outlet you are using is on a circut that also has lighting, appliances etc, each item is drawing amps, the addition of the compressor to the circut is pushing the amp limit over the top. You can also try a heavier duty extension cord. If you are using an extension that is rated too low for the required amperage your breaker will trip. If you are not using an extiension cord you may need to talk to an electrician about adding another circut to service your tool and garage needs.
Another possiblity is that your service is not upgraded enough. If you have a 60amp service for the house you might want to talk to an electrician about upgrading to 100amp or more.

If the circuit breaker was tripped, more likely the fuse inside the TV power supply might also be blown. If that is the case there might be a short circuit in the power supply components, more likely on a diode or transistor/mosfet.
Contact these website to see if they have the parts for your plasma.
Good Luck.

See if you have a grounded circut in the appliance. Check 1 flat to your volt ohm meter. Connect the other probe from meter to the other flat. And you should get a reading of resistance. Next connect 1 probe to the flat then the other to ground. A reading - indicates nothing until the next step. Now try the other flat to the ground?

1 Of these flats are connected to the nutural and possible feed through or back to ground in the appliance. The other one though should not read to ground. If you get a ground reading on both flat of the plug in someting is together that should not be.

If you dont get a readign try plugging in at a different outlet. A circut that has too much load will cause circut breakes to over heat and trip.

If it runs at a different outlet make sure its on a different breaker. If its on the same breaker it will probably start acting up again.

DOes this help? If so please rate me as high as possible If not please restate your problem to help me understand it better. Thnaks for using Fixya and Good Luck.

Circut breakers


Is it after it has ran for a while or tripping every time it comes on? If after it runs awhile check your wire tightness at the breaker and at the unit. Loose wiring will heat up a braker and trip it. Also check to see that the rating of the unit and the breaker are matched.

Candy cs455 m dishwasher tripping out power


if what you mean is that it trips the circut or fuse in your home then the circut that you have it pluged into is not sufficent to hold for the elctrical load that the dishwasher needs. you can do one of two things. change the circut that the dishwasher is on ( plug it into a circut that has nothing else on it or verfiy that the circut can handle a higher amperage .. if thats the case change the fuse / circut breaker to a higher amperage.

peace ... jk
