SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: my ac circuit breaker keep tripping

If your outside condenser has a locked rotor or short circuit, than the unit WILL trip the breaker - as it should. On the other hand if a breaker is tripped a few times it will have less of a capacity that the rating, (this is designed in it). You will need to determine if the unit is locked (and broken) or the breaker has become too sensitive.

SOURCE: Keeps tripping circuit breaker everytime on plug the power cord in

2 common, possible problems. 1 - there is a "short" in the plug - easy fix - replace either the cord or plug - not expensive. 2 - bad control board - not so easy, not so cheap. Is it brand new, used? Also, it could be a bad "internal breaker" - not easy!

SOURCE: two 15 amp arc fault breakers installed on two

It's possible that the first breaker that you said does not trip - it could be that breaker is failing to trip on a bad circuit. That is, it could be you have a bad circuit but that first breaker is not detecting it and pretends everything is OK. If your new breaker trips on the first breaker's circuit, the curcuit it probably bad and the breaker in not working properly. The most common problem for failed circuits is a stray ground wire in a box somewhere in the curcuit resting against a hot or neutral wire. You'll have to take apart every connection on that curcuit to find it. Not fun.

Forgot to open water supply for my new washing machine and when it started flashing I only realized the problem.As soon as it washes it trips my main switch and says Earth Leakage????Please help!!!!!


Hello Dora,

An Earth-leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) is a safety device used in electrical installations with high Earth impedance to prevent shock. It detects small stray voltages on the metal enclosures of electrical equipment, and interrupts the circuit if a dangerous voltage is detected.

You should have an appliance service person come out for a service call since there may be a dangerous shock hazard present on the machine.

Thanks,
Mario

As soon as i plug it in the circuit breaker trips.


You have a short. It is either short to ground or short circuiting. Check the cord very carefully for breaks. Make sure the ground plug is in tacked. Also try a different outlet to make sure the problem is the tool.

When I plug in (and switch on) the hostess trolley it trips the electric in the house. However, works perfectly in another house.


Hi,
sounds as if your home power distribution / Fuse board has an earth leakage trip and is sensing a leak on the trolley, perhaps the other house is not so well protected, or the Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker ( ELCB) trip is faulty. It would make sense not to use the trolley until you have had it checked out

When using the oven portion of the microwave oven it continues to trip the circuit the microwave is alone on a 20amp circuit .When I microwave it doesn't trip at all.Is it possible to move up to a 30 or 50...


If the breaker is an earth leakage type, it is possibly an earth leak problem which could be caused by insulation breakdown on the heater inside the microwave.
I would consult an aporved electrician for advice.
