Kicks off circuit breaker

My estate dryer is brand new, everytime I turn it on it will run for a few mins then kick my circuit breaker off. The circuit breaker was replaced and its still doing it. What else can it be? The vent is clear, we have checked everything we know to do.

    Oh and it runs fine if u use the no heat setting, but even on the lowest heat setting it kicks the circuit breaker off

    I have the same problem, I am using 30A, 10 gauge wiring, dryer is rated at 5400W, so it should be correct amperage. Other thoughts?

    I have a Samsung Dryer. Also, it is hooked up to 2 x 15Amp breakers and only one of them is tripping after about 1 min of turning on the dryer with heat. I have replaced that breaker and it is still doing it, could it be a problem with the other breaker (the one that is NOT tripping)?

Make sure your breaker is high in amps, at less 50 amp breaker

BREAKER TRIP AFTER 8 MINS .WORKED ONLY ON PERMANENT PRESS FOR A YR NORMAL ..WOULD TRIP BREAKER ON LOW AND HEAVY SETTING AFTER 5 MINS CYCLE.


This problem might be in your house electrical system rather than the dryer but it will take some troubleshooting to figure it out.
1. First make sure that you are connected to a 30 amp circuit breaker. If not then that is the problem!
2. Use a clamp on amp meter to see what the dryer is drawing from your electrical panel before it trips. If it is below the rating of the 30 amp circuit breaker when it trips, then your circuit breaker is defective.
3. If the dryer is drawing more than 30 amps it is in your machine and you will need to troubshoot that. Since you stated the times - is it always the same and does not vary? Then you have to figure out what you dryer is doing at the 8 minute mark and each machine is a little different. Soem machines go into a tumble air only mode for the first few minutes before kicking on the heating elecment. If yours is that was then it is the heating element, thermostat or something to do with the heating circuit.

Pool motor kicking the breaker only after a few minutes .


If the pool pump is running and then 10 minutes into the cycle it trips the breaker, then it is overloading the circuit. The pump is laboring, workingf too hard . The filter shoiuld be cleaned. maybe there is a blockage in the return line to the pool. the other thing could be the wire size to the pump, but you said that it was running last summer . so that should be OK

My roper electric dryer heats when running for 5 mins. then trips circuit breaker


May not be your dryer. Many times a loose wire at the circuit breaker panel will cause the breaker to get hot and then thermal trip the breaker. It may be worth a look. Remove circuit breaker panel. Turn dryer breaker off. Check wire lug screws for being loose. Make sure screws or snug but do not tighten and strip the threads. Be especially careful if the wire/cable is silvery aluminum colored. If that is the case make sure there are not any broken strands at the breaker lugs. If possible use a clamp on amp meter to check the operating current. The current should not exceed 80 percent of your breaker rating. It is most likely a 30 Amp 2 pole. You may also have a bad breaker. If a breaker has a weak spring or bad contacts it will easily get hot under load and trip. My best guess other than a dryer motor locking up or dragging. New breakers are inexpensive at HD or Lowes etc. Be sure to get the exact brand and model if replacing.

Dryer is flipping breaker after 10 minutes into dry cycle.


You have a weak circuit breaker . Should be a 30 amp or higher . If you have access to an amp meter , split the dryer cord , separating the 3 wires (do not remove the insulation ) . If you have a black round cord ( 4 prong ) , carefully slice into and remove the black insulation in a small portion only . Check the amps on both outer wires while running dryer . Make sure the amps being pulled are lower than the circuit breaker amps . On a black cord , test the black wire and the red wire amps . If the dryer has a short , it would not run for 10 min and then throw breaker . It would be almost imediate . A bad breaker will gradually get hot and then flip , but check the dryer amps anyway to be sure .

Dyer starts but after 1 to 3 mins the circut breaker kicks off


If it is the correct size breaker for the dryer, the circuit breaker may be weak and in need of replacement.

Estate gas dryer


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
