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.?

Re: No power on Danby a/c after tripping out

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.

Sounds like a short to ground problem with either the motor windings shorting to ground or a high voltage wire shorting.

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.

One year old Danby dac8075ee, HAS NO POWER, what could be wrong ? please help

your air conditioner has no 'power' on it's own. It must get the power from an electrical outlet.

It is possible that the outlet you are plugged into is 'dead,' i.e. not working. One simple way to test this is to plug in another electrical appliance, hair dryer for example to test it and see if it's working.

If you do this and the other electrical device works then you know your AC is getting the 'power' it needs to operate - in which case you have a problem with your AC, and will probably need to call a Service Tech.

If, however, you plug in another device and it - too - does not work then you know the problem is within the outlet, probably a 'breaker' that is off or has tripped off. So, you need to locate the breaker - box.

This "breaker - box" (in most houses) will be located in the garage, utility room, or behind a door somewhere in the house, i.e. kitchen or bedroom.

If your outlet is not working - just go to the breaker box and open the door and look for a breaker (looks like a light switch) that is in the off position or perhaps half way off and half way on. Once you find this breaker - be sure your AC is plugged in and - just flip it (breaker switch) back in the "on" position.

Note: if the breaker switch trips right back off - then you know you have a direct short in your AC and probably will need the help of a Service Tech.

If this is the problem and the breaker stays in the on position and the AC runs and cools - you are probably ok, unless the breaker trips again in a short time span.

If that happens you most likely have a problem in the unit although it's possible the breaker is bad - in any event you are probably in the need of a Service Tech.

good luck!

I can't seem to get the A/C to work. I'm thinking of getting a hose as a last resort. It seems to alternate blowing cool air, then hot air after a few minutes. There's also a tendency for the a/c to...

The symtoms you describe appear to indicate that the AC might be low on the freon charge. Usually blowing cold and then hot is the first sign that the unit is low on refridgerant and is working hard to keep cooling.

Further, the tripping of the breakers/electric power also indicates that the unit is working hard to cool and as a result is running hot and is causing the power to trip off. If you can get a AC tech to recharge the unit, you should be all set.

Here's a link to a site with the owners manual and a troubleshooting guide for your unit. You can access it for free.

Hope this helps you get things working again! Best Regards!

Domestic a/c runs fine for hours then trips circuit breaker

Check the difference between your incoming voltages at these times, it may be, if your plugged in to park power, the voltage getting to you may be less due to neighbors using more. If you have a genny, try using it when this happens and see if it trips. More lights, TV's etc are probably being used at night by others.

Air conditioner trips circuit only in the evening?

first off, it's illegal to release freon into the atmosphere. the epa could charge you $32,500, so keep it under your hat. second, if it's getting too cold where the evaporator coils are icing up, it's too lille freon, not too much. as for the breaker tripping, your compressor might be wearing out. if it's pulling too much current, the motor is failing and the compressor needs replacing. and do not do it yourself unless you're certified by the epa to move freon and have the proper equipment to recollect the used freon.
