UNPLUG!! CHECK THE RELAY THATS is in the back conected to the compresor if it has a white relay then its proably bad . you can take it off shake it and if it sounds like a salt or pepper shaker .then replace that. but if the compresor keeps on clicking the you have a bad compresor . and it exceeds the cost of the fridge

Trips breaker once in awhile.Not consistent. Replaced elements, contactors, wash motor. Still trips once in awhile.


check for a bad connection, if there is a bad connection it could draw more amperage then it should.

Furnace runs awhile then breaker trips


Electric furnace I assume- check with amp meter, if amps are below listed on breaker, replace the breaker, [check both the breakers in the furnace and in the house pannel, even if only one is tripping right now, the other(s) may start doing the same thing after you eliminate the weakest link- don't be surprised!] electric furnaces are notorius for "eating" breakers- they overheat the breakers for years then the breakers get weak and trip too easilly... if gas, post more info and I'll try to help further.

My heil heat pump has been tripping circuit breakers. It might run 8 hours to two days before it trips. I replaced the breaker. They put a hard start on the compressor. Now they say the next step is the...


Have you noticed what the outdoor temperature is when this unit is tripping the breaker? Does it seem to be at a higher outdoor temperature or at all outdoor temperatures day and night?
Did they check the run capacitor to see if it's good and the proper microfarads?
Did they check to see if the breaker trips when it's starting up or after it has been running awhile.
If it's tripping on start up then it's possible the next step is the compressor replacement.
If it's tripping after running awhile then it could be dirty indoor coil or filters,blower not running at full speed,low voltage, loose wire connection, points burnt on contactor and even a weak run capacitor.

Overheats and trips off


internal thermal over loads in motor are working properly! how old is the motor? double check all vavles on the intake and discharge line to make sure that they are open? sounds like the pump is pushing against what is known as dead head pressure. obstruction in discharge line! if valves are ok you can take the jet covers off (the piece that helps direct flow of water) which will relieve some of the pressure should allow it to run without tripping tgermal overloads. if none of this works replace motor!!

Breaker tripping


The problem may not be with your dryer but with the circuit breaker...

Locate the circuit breaker for the dryer. Run the dryer for awhile and with the back of your finger pressed against each of the two switches (it will be a double breaker), see if the breaker is getting warm or wait until the dryer quits then check the breaker for any noticeable increase in temperature. With properly rated breakers, they should not get warm. If getting warm, it is a sign the breaker is bad and should be replaced.

Circut breakers


Is it after it has ran for a while or tripping every time it comes on? If after it runs awhile check your wire tightness at the breaker and at the unit. Loose wiring will heat up a braker and trip it. Also check to see that the rating of the unit and the breaker are matched.
