Upright freezer trips circuit after moving across room

If compressor is hot, it could be an issue with the starting components. Let it cool down for about an hour an it is room temperature to the touch. If the breaker trips when the compressor attempts to start, I would look at the start components. It may be just a case of unusual timing that they went bad at this time. Make sure there is nothing else on the circuit you have it plugged into. Could be an overloading issue of the circuit.

My e wave microwave appears to be in fine working order until the door is opened. It then trips the breaker and ceases working. Ater the house breaker is reset, the power is restored to the microwave...

You may have a short circuit on the INTERIOR LIGHT BULB circuit in your microwave.

This might explain why the breaker trips every time you open the door.

If so, you would have to unplug and disassemble the unit in order to access the wires and light bulb socket inside the case in order to troubleshoot and repair the problem.

If you are unfamiliar with safe electrical troubleshooting and repair procedures, please be extremely careful or consider hiring an electrician to do the work. There are some hazardous components inside which remain dangerous even after the unit is unplugged.

Good luck.

Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker

It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.

Fridge tripping the electricity


this sounds like the defrost heater is faulty. because at a certin time the m/c brings on the heater one every 24 hours that is why it is only tripping out at that time.

Machine tripped all sockets halfway through cycle

You are going to have find the problem by elimination.
Start by unplugging the motor. and trying it again,if it still does it then you need to disconnect heater and so on, until it stops tripping

Car will not turn over

The most common problem would be a bad starter. The clicking sound is not always heard in a bad starter. The mentioning of no attempt to turn over shows that the process stopped at start (bad starter) Check the positive cable on the starter for corrosion. Otherwise, you will have to replace the starter. The problem is intermittent,stay aware It might start 2 or 3 times then out of nowhere. it will start give you problems. Avoid the headache, replace the starter.

Whirlpool drier has no heat and won't shut off . . .

it was most likely caused by the timer not turning off and burning out the heating element or a temperature switch or tripping one side of the circuit breaker in the house. it really needs to be checked out by a professional. unless it is old then you might want to replace it.
  • best case scenario:
  • the breaker has tripped (turn it off then back on to find out)
  • the TIMER MOTOR is the only problem <$30
If the timer itself is bad then it will cost a lot more.
