This happened to us. The control kit goes out. It has happened again this year after being replaced last year. Does anyone know why this keeps going out?

Dr Mercola Pure & Clear air purifier model# PC_AP2000. Unit stopped working, will not turn on. Cannot find a fuse in this unit. All else is in perfect working order. Thank you for your help.


The unit would be fused through the circuit breaker it gets power from in the main box of the house or in some cases a sub box to the main house circuit breaker box. If it is tripping the breaker something is seriously wrong and to reset over and over causes a fire risk, call a repair person.

No power

Click here if you own a Vacuflo Central Vacuum Unit continuously trips your circuit breaker
If it is tripped, then turn off your central vacuum unit and reset the circuit breaker. Then turn the central vacuum unit on. If the circuit breaker trips again, then refer to the following:

No power to unit


Whether this is a window unit or a built-in unit, check the source of the power. Is there a circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel that has been tripped? If so, it's probably the one that serves the AC unit. Reset the breaker and see if it trips again, after you turn the AC unit ON. If it does, either that circuit is overloaded or there is an electrical short in the AC unit.

Hope his helps you troubleshoot the problem.

Fridge is causing the circuit breaker to trip when plugged in


Hi!!

Your unit is shorted out, check power cord and wiring on lower back of unit.

It may be the compressor shorted out.
If you have a pet, they some times remove wire insulation.

Turn unit so you can see the compressor housing on the bottom of the unit's back, you may need to emove the cover. turn breaker on and check if the small fan and the compressor kicked in. If the compressor did not start, and the breaker tripped again call a service tech to check unit.

Good Luck!!!

We had a power surge now when i plug my fridge in it blows my circuit breaker


The power surge might have damaged the wiring to the refrigerator. You can check this one with a megar. That is only if the circuit breaker blows off, ONLY when the unit is turned on. Else, the problem may be that current is flowing through the neutral. You can check it with a tester and if so, report it to the electricity board. Else, as a temporary measure, you can connect your unit, bypassing the circuit breaker. But in that case the circuit breaker will never blow off regarding any complaints to the unit and may result in a slight power wastage.

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year


A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

I have a 1990 hd ultr clasic tour glide. when i use my turn signals my instrument lights and gauges flash. all grounds have been cleaned and look good.


Your turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit and the only thing it has to do with the lights and gauges is the power source. Check your "lights" circuit breaker. It sounds like you may have a short circuit somewhere causing the circuit breaker to break and then reset, only to break again. This happening over and over will appear to be a turn signal flashing. Find the circuit breakers, usually under the seat, and listen when you turn the turn signals on. See if you can hear the circuit breaker "clicking". Good Luck!

OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.

I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.

When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!

So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.

Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.

This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .

Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.

first turn the power on to the unit and taking a pencil manually activate the contactor switch by pushing the contactor swith in. (this is the switch that the power feeds to the unit from the supply) if the unit activates and runs then you problem would be your low voltage control(transformer) if not then the problem will be in the circuit board. Good Luck on repairs
