Question about Danby DAC6003D Air Conditioner

No power on Danby a/c after tripping out

The a/c was running and it was really cold outside one night and the electrical breaker tripped for the first and only time .I reset the breaker and tried to power up the control display and nothing worked at all .the receptacle was powered up but no control power . Is there a control fuse in the display board or a small breaker or inline power overload .if so where is it and how would i recognize it and try a replacement . since it is colder outside i would bring the a/c indoors and warm it up completely before testing it or jumpering out to bypass any o/l control device to prove the device is blown.then i would replace the device to maintain the proper protection, Is there a schematic available for this unit showing the o/l devices ?? And where can i see it.?

    I am having similar problems. We had to plug our AC into an extension cord. The air conditioner would turn off if the plug shifted at all, and seemed pretty tempermental, but when it worked it was pretty nice. Though two or three days after we got it, it stopped working. When we try the test the plug, it makes some quiet sounds and i guess shorts out, when i unplug it, the outlet has small traces of what looks like dirty water.. not the best thing for an electronic outlet.. any idea what could be happening? thanks very much :)

If you have a solid state control board their maybe a fuse. You will probably need to contact the mfg for wiring diagram. Personally I have never worked on that product.

Outside unit turns on and runs for a long time by itself then shuts off. Does this all day an night long. Notice this after a circuit breaker tripped. Not breaker to unit though. Other parts of house.

You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset. If you need any other Air Conditioning Repair help. Check us out online.

Electric range breaker trips at night when all asleep, resets ok

Are you sure nothing else is using power? Sounds like a ground fault to me. Any devices which could cause harmonics which you can think of?

My hot tub has been running perfectly until a few nights ago when the GFCI breaker tripped and now it wont reset

Either you have a ground fault or the GFCI is toasted. Turn off the power to the GFCI, open the box the GFCI is in and disconnect the output wires, close up the box, re-energize, and try to reset it again. This will tell you which problem you have.

I have a Rheem Heat Pump unit. This winter, the outside unit fan at times trips off, but the inside unit keeps running continuously. I woke up one morning & it was 62 in the house. The inside unit ran...

Dear Friend!

Due to very low ambient temp, the fan will not run. Once the pressure build up, it's automatically run for some time and again cut off. But if you keep Heat mode and still tem not raised in your room means the reversable valve not working and hence the compressor and out side fan also will not work. Keep "Heat" mode and temp setting +29 to get better heat. Hope is it helpful?

ON excessively hot days, the outside heat pupmp trips the circuit breaker. Most times it is only once, I turn the breaker to "on" and it works fine. Some days it pops two or three times. When the outside...

Hello I would add a HARD START KIT to the run capasitor (if there is not one already).This makes the compressor come on easy.If the breaker trips during running time the pressures are too high,hose off the condenser coil (fins).The unit might be slightly overcharged but I would be careful before adjusting the freon at all.

My amana ac unit over heats the circuit breaker and trips it off after running for about 15 minutes. It will not blow the fuses on the outside disconnect next to the unit outside.

What you described 'shouldn't' be happening - "if" the outside fuses and the inside breaker are sized correctly for your air conditioner.

I would make sure that the fuses in your outside disconnect were the proper size (for your AC), and that the inside breaker was of suffienct size to handle the air conditioner, and whatever else might be on the circuit.

Note: You would never want the 'outside fuse size' to be bigger than the inside breaker.

For example: 50 amp fuses in the outside disconnect and a 40 amp inside breaker is a no-no.

Often, for whatever reasons - someone will put larger fuses in the outside disconnect than what is called for.

When this happens the inside breaker is the only safety on the AC.

The problem is - for whatever reason - your inside breaker should not be tripping off.

It's likely that the AC may be on a inside breaker "that also has other things i.e. dryer, electric range or Refrigerator," and therefore any of these components 'including' the air conditioner could be causing the inside breaker to 'trip.'

One way to check this would be to 'un-plug' whatever else you had on the inside breaker - and then run your air conditioner and see if the breaker trips. Let's say you have the refrigerator and the air conditioner on the same inside breaker. You suspect the refrigerator is causing the inside breaker to trip - so you unplug it - and then turn on the air conditioner. "Now" it does not trip the inside breaker and assuming you have the proper fuses in the outside disconnect - you could safely say the air conditioner is ok - but - the refrigerator might be on the blink.

It's also possible that you just have too much on the inside breaker and you need to plug the refrigerator in to another outlet.

Still, if it was me - I think I would really think 'hard' about calling a Service Tech out - and let him/her diagnose the problem.

Hope this helps.
