SOURCE: My new maytag centennial electric keeps tripping

Hi Matt
I'm not sure that swapping out the breakers to higher rated ones will give you a solution so I'll throw in 2 cents to see if my advice holds true. Let's start by asking this. Is the appliance "rated" at 220 volts at 30 amps per leg. I assume this from your post as to what it has been rated. Next - How long is the "run" of wire from the junction box to the outlet where the appliance plugs in? This usually does not matter in most households but if the run is of significant length it may need a larger gage wire to support the current draw of the appliance. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, are the lugs and wire connectors tight at the outlet, the plug, and the breaker box. A loose connection will ramp up the current fast. This is assuming the first two items were met. Tell me if any of this helps and we'll work it out from there.
Thanks.
Len

SOURCE: Breaker keeps tripping

Hello. Here is what I think, not looking at the unit myself, I would start by checking the heaters, both of them, and the heating circuit for a short to ground through the water, here is a link to the manual,
http://www.bunnomatic.com/pdfs/commercial/manuals/41746.0000.pdf

and from page 34 on has the proper diagrams. An electrician should be able to handle a resistance check of this circuit, with a multimeter. If not you need a repair person that can, look in your phone book for Restaurant repair service.
The other thing I have seen with these, is the solenoid coils have shorted out, and cause intermittent problems, but these usually blow the main board, this would be evident by black scorching either on the front or back of the board.

Hope that helped, and thank you.
Ask me if you need more help.

You must have too many things running on that circuit. Check your connection to the power box.Loose connection on the receptacle can cause the breaker to trip or too many things running on the same circuit. If the breaker is old it might need to be replaced.

Tip

Dryer Breaker Issue


If your dryer is not heating at all, before you call a service company ,check your dryer breaker. You say why because the unit is running just not heating. You are correct it can run but not heat with a breaker tripped. See, the motor only requires 120volts to run and it requires 240volts for the heater to work. What happens is that 1/2 the breaker can trip leaving you with 120volts-enough to run the motor. Just reset the breaker and see if you get heat. This does NOT help most of the time as it is usually a faulty part however, its worth a try because this may be your lucky day and that's all it is...saving you money.Hope this tip helps someone!

Generator electrical problem


No it sounds like the engine is losing power, as the RPM drops the voltage drops, this increases the current load and that trips the breaker.

Why is my Craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener tripping breaker?


-If you can. Manually open roll up and down by hands
to see and feel the door. It's smooth or too tight and too heavy.
-If it' s too tight and too heavy then door rail and wheel need to be lubricate then try again.
-If it's not very heavy and smooth then the motor is worn out. So it'll drain a lot of amp to be able to handle the weight of the door. that's why it trip the breaker.

Good luck

About 2 months ago my Main Breaker in my 100 amp service box began tripping when certain large appliances were running the same time my central air unit was running. Nothing has changed as far as...


Well breakers can weaken overtime if they are overloaded. A breaker is meant to have 80% of its capacity used, for example a 20 amp breaker should have only 16 amps of current on it. If something was changed six years ago that has loaded that breaker to its max it may have not affected it until now. Another thing would to be absolutely sure that everything running in your house is not exceeding 100 amps. Many houses these days have 200 amp panels because of how much amperage added appliance and the like will use. A licensed electrician will be needed to swap out the breaker, which will be a little expensive but shouldn't be outrageous as he will not be swapping out the whole panel, just the main breaker.

Unit shuts off on hot days


It may be low on refrigerant. On hotter days, the compressor has to run longer to reach the temperature you have on your thermostat. Have it checked for the proper refrigerant charge and have them test how many amps that the compressor is pulluig as well. With the proper breaker installed, the unit should not be tripping out. Make sure that the breaker that is in there now is actually the proper one for your unit.

200AMP Breaker trips same time every night


Something doesn't sound right here. You indicate 2 200Amp breakers. With a single service entering the house, this is not possible. The "sub-panel" to the pool house is more likely a 100Amp setup, yes? If not, you have a bad setup and it should be corrected. I would suspect that you are attempting to pull too much current to the pool and that is what is tripping the breaker. Also, these breakers should not be run over about 80% of their capacity for the long haul. If they are, they tend to age and get either real sensitive causing tripping when it shouldn't or you can run 500Amps through it and it won't trip.

My suggestion is to revisit the setup. If the pool house is fed from the main panel, make sure that the breaker for it is not 200Amp. Second, try disabling the pool house breaker to see if that is the source of the problem and look more closely there.

Keep us posted.
