1999 Artesian hot tub heater keeps tripping electric breaker


read the pump motor tag. it should have wattage consumption. if u have already been running it, ensure breaker is pushed all the way in. and u don't have a new appliance running on the same breaker.make sure the grounds are clean and tight.thats all I can think of. if persists,use a multi meter and start testing.

Rheem gas power vent water heater model# 21vp75e-19 keeps tripping gif breaker when plugged in, help please


Check where wires go into housing, look for a bare or nicked neutral (white) wire. GFCI's only trip when the neutral makes contact with ground.

Hatco booster blowing breakers


Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-is-blowing-breaker.html

Hatco booster heater typically has 2 sets of thermostats and elements located on each end of heater.
Both sides might be controlled by same 60 amp breaker, or the heater might be controlled by two separate 30 amp breakers.
Be sure you have correct wire and breaker.

After reading steps on link above, add comment and say if this is new installation, or older installation that suddenly started throwing breaker.

The bottom heating element keeps blowing breaker and bottom of heater is filling up with water around heating element


If there is enough water around element and lower thermostat, it's going to blow the breaker. If you don't have leaks at the pipes above, it's probably time to replace the heater. If the leak can be found and repaired, there may be hope for the heater but, if it is leaking past thermostat, you probably have a crack in the threads. Make sure, if your going to work with the wiring of the unit, that it is turned off and, if it is on, make sure you're careful and not standing in water. You could quite possibly have a cracke or broken tank.

After installing my titan N100 the breaker keeps tripping went from 50 amp breaker to 60 and still keeps tripping how do Isolve this problem?


You had an instant heater there before? Or a different type? Your breaker numbers don't mean anything to me, I need amps and volts, what is the amp? 30? and the volt is 220? Or are you in Europe?. And you had the four wires in there before? And you have all 4 wires on the heater line? And the heater is grounded? It should work. Unless it is not getting enough juice, but you already upped the amp. Let me know what you got.

The black wire in the hot water heater is glowing red, I can hear a noise in the breaker bos so I pulled the breaker loos and the plastic to the panel has been melted.


Breaker may be defective and not clipping off when it overheats. More and more power keeps going through it and nothing to stop it. Or check the wiring on the heater itself to be sure they are connected right.

THE INSTA HOT HEATER KEEPS TRIPPING THE BREAKER?


Hire an electrician.  The breaker needs to be replaced or the wiring in your house is not able to handle it.  I believe most need 2-30amp breakers.
