Circuit breakers are designed to protect life and property. Do not use an appliance that overloads the breaker. If it is popping a 15 amp breaker try it on a 20 amp, if it does not trip the 20 amp breaker measure the amperage. If the actual amperage exceeds 16 (80%) of the overcurrent device or the device exceeds the Wattage stated on the device. Repair or replace it.

Carrier fa4anf036 home heater not a car. Blows luke warm common for an electric heater?


As near as I can tell from internet information. This model is a heat pump. It transfers cold air out of the house and gets what ever warm air might be outside the house. In extreme cold weather an auxiliary electric heater should make up the difference. The filters must be clear. There is a limit what the heat pump can do in cold weather. Your electric heater may not be activating. You could try raising the thermostat. A service technician may be needed to determine why the electric heater is not working.

How does circuit breaker work?


In the circuit breaker there are two electrodes with space some distance.
There are many types of circuit breaker air blast,oil C.B, vacuum C.B etc.
Most probably oil circuit breaker is used. In the OCB, the transformer oil fill.
And these electrodes are submerge.
Now when the electricity flows from one terminal to another terminal, the arc is developed between terminals end inside the circuit breaker. This arc is quenched by transformer oil.And the electricity flows without any fault.

Amp keeps blowing fuses


Blowing fuses, was caused by many thing.
Short of rectifier,resistor,elco,tube heater,tube pin, and also trafo itself (primary or secondary winding). It must check step by step.
CAUTION :
THIS IS HIGH VOLTAGE AREA.
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK THAT CAN KILL.
DON'T DO THIS IF YOU ARE NOT TECHNICIAN OR NOT FAMILIAR WITH VACUM TUBE CIRCUIT. THE CIRCUIT MAY STILL CONTAINS ELECTRIC SHOCK EVEN IF IF THE AMP IS NOT POWER PLUGGED.


The simple steps (see picture) are:
  1. Disconnect all connection from secondary of power trafo (PLV,PDCH,PACH and PHV).
    Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,trafo is good.
  2. Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    Connect PLV1-PLV2-PLV3 (this are Bias voltage,+/-15VDC and Backlight PCB voltage) to power trafo.Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,PLV circuit is good.If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,7815/7915,resistor) in this PLV circuit.
  3. If step 2 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV circuit stay connected,connect PDCH 1-2 and PACH 1-2 to power trafo. Power ON the amp.
    If fuse is not blowing,PDCH and PACH circuit is good and all tubes heater/filaments are lights after a few seconds.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube heater pins) in this PDCH/PACH circuit.
  4. If step 3 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV,PDCH,PACH circuit stay connected,connect PHV 1-2 to power trafo.
    Power ON the amp. CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE AREA is ON.
    If fuse is not blowing,PHV circuit is good.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube pins) in this PHV circuit.

Notes:
  • Steps had to be done sequentially from 1 to 4, not upside down.
  • If tube/heater pin is short,it can't be repair. The tube must be replacing.
  • PDCH circuit is voltage for V1-2-3-4 heater/filaments.
  • PACH circuit is voltage for V5-6-7 heater/filaments.
  • Always replace fuse with same type.

Pops electric panal breaker


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

A dehumidifier is similar to having another refrigerator plugged in. It is recommended that it be plugged into a circuit of its own. If you are talking about the house fuse or circuit breaker it could be the circuit has to many products plug into the that house circuit. I would suggest moving it to another area of the house to see if it also blows that fuse. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

If I plug in two portable heaters in the same room the circuit blows Can I put in a bigger breaker?


not a good idea, your house wiring may become the fuse,try to find another curcuit to run the 2nd one, even if it's in another room,stay away from extension cords with electric heaters, if you have to use one, get a short 14 or 12 gauge cord, turn them off when nobody is home

HEater is heating outside but not blowing warm air thru the vents inside the house. May blow air for 10 mins but then stops. I have the temp. set at 76 degrees but it is 48 degrees in my house right now.


sounds like you may have some restriction in the heater or overtemp sensor is kicking out to soon, clean everything thourghly, check fan and oil bearing, check safety circuits in furnace wiring, refer to owners manual trouble shooting guide

Heater works, but only on Emergency Mode


It sounds like you have a "setback thermostat" A control intended to increase efficiency by allowing the fan to run for an adjustable amount of time after the heater turns off, whether the heater is electric or part of a heat pump. If the "setback" time is too long, the element will cool off and the fan will blow cold air. Try and locate the instructions for the thermostat and see if the "fan run time after heat turn off" is adjustable and reduce it by half. Most emergency heat circuits bypass control circuits (its an emergency, you know), and require manual control.

Cadet Thermostat


from the mod number it looks like you have electric baseboard. these do not have blowers in them they work off natural air movement. but heat up rather quickly. your gonna have to chk if baseboard is getting power to determine weather or not the t stat or the heater is not working. but first chk your circuit breakers. most heaters are 220v (double breaker)
