Recently, one of my electrical appliances caused a 'trip' to the electrical circuit. I reset the mains electrical board but the air conditioner doesn't work properly. It runs for about 10 mins, some vents do not have air coming out and after that, it stops automatically. The display screen message says 'P8'. How can I reset the airconditioner to rectify this problem?

DO NOT install a 20 amp breaker, you can cause a fire. The breaker is rated for the WIRES, and unless you change out the wires, the 15 amp wires will overheat and can cause a fire.
Typically, A/C units need dedicated power, with nothing else on that circuit.
One step that you may try is a new 15 amp breaker. Once a breaker starts tripping, is starts tripping earlier....
You may wind up running a new circuit for the A/C, if you do, size it for the A/C.
There's obviously there is a short or electrical overheating problems omewhere in the appliance that's causing the circuit breaker (Reset Button) to trip. Stop using the AC unit and have it checked by a professional.
Hi, I assume it is ducted, it could be either a flapper door is closed to shut off an area from receiving air, or there is a blockage in the duct (less likely). Also if there is more than one duct attached to the air conditioner then you'll have to check if air is entering all ducts (you may have a problem with the unit).
The upper unit doesn't matter ( the actual ac unit on roof ) it's the lower control unit (inside at ceiling) that you need to change to use either ducted or non-ducted system. Any RV dealer can supply that, probably have it on the shelf. Just make sure you write down the model number and serial number, off the bottom of the upper unit, so they can match lower unit to it, for ducted system.
hi! there,this unit when you plug in is tripping off,that why the shutt off,short circuited,thermostat is not functioning,there is problem on circuit board.there are several factor,to be check on this why tripping off,this should be done by a/c technician.call a technician nearest on you.but if you can do or know about electrical control and you need tools.first the compressor should be check,if there is an overload protection relay you can reset,pushing the lever to put back source supply.then swicht on.if not work you need certified a/c technician to do this.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.tank's
