Dryer keeps tripping the circuit breaker

Old dryer kept tripping the circuit breaker so got a newer one since the old one was at least 15 years old. But now the newer one that just put in last night is doing the same thing. What could be causing this?

Hello mam please change the mains breaker after tripping for several times the breaker will be defected and check the power socket outlet by removing the socket there should not be any loose connections and skinned wires.

Why did my Trane air conditioner trip the circuit breaker?


Could be the circuit breaker is bad,only way to find out is to replace it,you can't tell by looking at it,my Dryer kept tripping mine,finally went to Home depot and bought a new one and it has fixed the problem,but It could be something else.I even called a electrical company and they said it just tripped the circuit breaker,and they reset it and the dryer worked for about 10 minutes after they left and it tripped again,had to pay them for service call and they didn't fix it,I did.Take your old one to match it up to be sure.

Whirlpool frontload dryer trips circuit when started all of the sudden. Gas dryer, replaced circuit, must be dryer


The dryer should be on a dedicated circuit. Is anything else on the same circuit? Try plugging the dryer into a different circuit and see if it still trips the breaker. The breaker trips because there is either a short or too much power is being drawn for the size of the circuit. Check how many amps the dryer uses, and make sure the circuit is rated for that load. If the dryer needs a 20 amp circuit, and the circuit it is plugged into is only a 15 amp circuit, that will trip the breaker.
If all that is good, there is a problem with the dryer, either a short or the motor is drawing too much power, which usually means it is at the end of it's useful life and need to be replaced. If you are handy, there are sites you can go to which will show how to remove the motor. There are appliance parts stores which will test your motor, and sell you a new one if you need one. I have a 30 year old dryer that still runs, with it's 4th motor and 5th belt, if you are handy. The cost of a repairman to come out is probably not worth it after the dryer is about 10 years old, better to replace the dryer at that point. The new ones are much more energy efficient and do a better job than the older equipment, so they are worth the investment.

It's possibly the circuit breaker rather than the dryer itself. Usually when it trips, it is overloaded or shorted. Overload can be a result of a loose connection or a bad heating element,when you remove the old breaker, see if it has some noticeable burn/corrosion marks where the wire is screwed down, I think replacing the breaker will fix the problem. Hope this helped Tim

I have a 5 to 7 year old kenmore dryer it runs but does not heat. should i repair or just buy new?


Be sure to check your breakers for dryer some times only one side of the 220v will trip and the dryer will run but it wont heat. The element is the only thing that is 220V. Hope this helps. A 7 year old dryer is not that old most dryers is good for 12 to 15 years.
It would be good to pay a service call and an est. them make the choice to fix or replace

Fridge/freezer trips my circuit breaker


This sounds like a grounded wire in your defrost system. Start by finding the defrost timer and checking the wires. One may have been pulled loose or pinched while it was being moved.

Breaker keeps tripping


If the breaker itself is more than 15 years old, replace it. If it continues to switch off, check the amp draw of both the inside and outside unit.
