LGWHD1500ER 12 amp 15,000 btu Window a/c unit.


the condenser is in the hot sun and the fan that moves the air is not cooling or removing the heat from the condenser fins
This places the head pressure of the compressor too high and so the circuit breaker trips from the excessive current draw to run the compressor under this load
The answer to this problem is to place shade cloth on a frame which covers the air conditioner by placing it in a shady area
another solution is to replace it with a split system where the outside unit can be placed away from the sun

My PAC CN120E was working fine until the outlet that is above it started to smoke. I plugged it into another outlet and red lights came on but quickly disappeared. Can you advise if the unit is blown out,...


I cannot tell from which country or area of the world you are, but in the USA, your 12,000 btu a/c unit would take a special plug and electrical circuit in many homes or apartment, because it is so large.

Today, most circuits are protected with a 15 amp circuit breaker, which can usually handle only a 5,000. or 6,000 btu unit. The next size up it often a 7,500 unit, and that is a lot for a 15 amp circuit .Some older homes have a 20 amp circuit breaker, which can handle up to a 8,000 btu a/c.
Before you start a fire in your house, have an electrician check all this, and see what is going on.
One reason I am talking about such small a/c units it that usually, household electrical circuits have other loads on them besides the a/c.
Be blessed.

Starting tripping circuit breaker


Good Afternoon Dennis - Often when this occurs, it is because there are too many appliances on the circuit or something may have a weak or poor breaker. Try plugging the unit in a different location or on its own circuit. If the issue continues, then it could also be possible that something shorted within the unit. So in this case, because it is a smaller appliance, repairs are often more costly than the actual unit replacement. You may want to check and see if your dehumidifier is still under warranty and if so, reach out to the manufacturer to determine the exact warranty coverage. Thanks for allowing me to help you.

Smoke burning smell for transformer


YES! You must replace the breaker! Circuit breakers are made to prevent fires from over-current on the line that follows the breaker. If it was smoking, it means that too much current was flowing and it did not trip soon enough. Most breakers, whether they trip at 15 Amps or 150 Amps can handle a very quick pulse of up to 10,000 Amps, but that would not make them smoke: something went wrong. A circuit breaker is cheap. Your safety is not!

I have a 15 amp break that tripps due to over load in the amount of outlets being used, can I replace the breaker with a larger amp breaker to solve the problem


You will solve the problem of the breaker tripping but you'll create a fire hazard as the wiring may overheat because of what you are drawing through the line. If you need a higher amp circuit breaker for the load you are creating on the line, you need to make sure the wiring can also handle the extra load. You'd be way better off by spreading the load over several different circuits or installing another line to reduce the load on the line that's tripping the breaker.

I just purchased a souleus 12000 btu portable air conditioner. The unit works fine but keeps tripping the circuit breaker in my apartment. What causes this and can it be fixed or is it just the wiring in...


First, you need to determine what, besides the Souleus, is on that electrical circuit, and whether the circuit is 15 or 20 amp.

12,000 BTU A/C's tend to pull 10-12 amps, and they can peak just under 15 when the compressor starts. So a new, right off the shelf unit will max out a 15amp circuit. An older model with a worn out starting cap will demand even more amps at compresser startup.

Everstar portable ac 10000 btu


The everstar 10,000 BTU unit will require a dedicated 115 V 15 amp circuit. if there are other things pluged into outlets and running from the same breaker then the 15 amp breaker will trip. Or, these units also have a GFCI plug adapter. Be sure it has not been tripped due to an improperly grounded outlet, or wet location.

Have a 155000 btu ready heater


It sounds like the unit is tripping the breaker because the breaker is not rated high enough to handle the heaters power usage! If its not that then it may very well be the thermostat needs replaced in unit!
Test at a friends house to see if its your system or the unit!

Frigidaire 12000 BTU A/C window unit


The reason that it's doing that is b/c at first its running only with the fan butwhen the compressor clicks on it trips the breaker if you have other items running off that circuit "unplug them" [even turned off items can still consume some power]. Then try to running only the ac unit see if it works a 12000btu takes a lot to run, if this doesn't work the ac may be to much for your circuit to handle and a smaller unit may be needed.
