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)?

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

The hottub keeps kicking the circuit breaker off.


Either the breaker is bad or you have an electrical problem. Unless you know how to work with electrical problems call for service. If you unplug the hot tub and plug a lamp or hair dryer into the outlet does the breaker trip? If yes, call an electrician. If the outlet is fine call for service on the hot tub.

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 .

Kenmore dryer


first dryer should be on circuit by itself..if dryers runs ok for a while before tripping breaker call electrican to change breaker..change it not ck it ..too many times had electricans tell cust breaker ckd ok but after explaining to cust a breaker can not be ck without load they had breaker changed and solved problem ..not just old breaker but even new ones can cause problems..if breaker kicks as soon as dryer is turned on ck wiring at connection where ac is connected very seldom does any other issues with dryer cause immediate tripping of breaker
