Hello,the simple cause of the the tripping off of your power breaker inside your home is simply because the voltage of the A/C is more than the voltage of the circuit.
for example,it's like using 220volt A/C on a 110v circuit. It will NEVER work. The wire got hot because you overloaded the circuit. You need an A/C that runs on 110v and does not draw 15 amps. Don't burn your house down trying to keep cool.
please kindly adhere to the instruction above to prevent fire outbreak in your home.
wish you good luck,

take care.

    I understand the concept, But what do I need to do ensure proper voltage? I have had TWO HVAC techs, come out and both have not said anything about my voltage? What do i need to do to fix this issue?

Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sometimes a circuit gets overloaded by electrical currents when too many appliances force too much electricity onto the circuit. When the breaker senses the circuit is overloaded, it "trips," cutting power to the circuit.

It's important to remember why the breaker tripped in the first place to prevent a fire. So, if you decide to reuse that appliance that tripped the breaker in the first place, you run the risk of overloading the circuit again. If it's a heavy-duty appliance that you'll need to use frequently, have an electrician install a dedicated circuit for it. Otherwise, try using your appliance in another part of the house where the circuits have less electricity to handle.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

My home AC is not working my compressor come on outside the house but no air is coming out of my ac vents inside the house??? Please advice!


1st check breaker box to see if you have power (tripped breaker) If you have power you should have a licensed contractor diagnose it. Caution the voltages in testing can be high, even deadly if you don't know what you are doing. You must have the proper tools to test. 3rd check 24v signal power. 4th test the capacitor to see if it is within 5% of rating 5th is there a start kit/compressor saver/5-2-1/start assist, or does it need one. 6th test windings and add up the resistance.

A relay in my rooftop model 57915.33 chatters intermitently and trips the shore power breaker.


The reason the lights are not flickering and breaker not tripping when 6 pin harness disconnected that goes to roof unit is because the compressor and fan are disconnected, which would be the major draw that causes it. There is a few ways you can narrow down the cause, or defective relay, but my guess is if it's causing lights to flicker and breaker to trip, it's on the compressor circuit. The fan coming on and off unless capacitor faulty wouldn't draw it down that much, and obviously capacitor is good otherwise it wouldn't operate good when turned on normally. I'd start by inspecting wires to and from thermostat for possible rubbing or touching against one another at a bare spot perhaps. Can't rule out 100% that thermostat isn't defective as well. When thermostat set to cooler temperature, and on, does it turn off and on in normal cycles, to maintain temperature?

The first thing to check is the thermal protector (circuit breaker). It is a small black button mounted on the housing on the back side of the pump motor. The unit will have to cool down before the button will reset. Usuall causes for the thermal protector to pop are: running the compressor on an extension cord, running the compressor on power lines or circuits that can't carry enough amps to run the motor, or little or no oil in the compressor causing excessive friction and heat buildup. If the thermal protector isn't tripped the next thing to check is the pressure switch. If the springs inside are broke or damaged they won't trip the switch to turn the compressor on. If the capacitor(s) are bad the motor will hum and/or try to turn but not have the power to start spinning.

I have a Amana PTAC model PTC123A50AC never had any problems until this a.m. walked into office were installed no heat. Breaker tripped, reset breaker, nothing. Checked outlet, getting power. Any idea's?


To all friends! Whenever you find breaker tripped or fuse blown, it's an indication some device/s are in problem.
To get tripped breaker:
1. Condenser too dusty- clean it.2. Fan motor or compressor grounded-Replace. 3. Compressor high amps due to capacitor weak-replace capacitor. 4. Burnt wire-rectify. 5.Short circuit-rectify.

Rooftop RV Air Conditioner: replaced capacitor on dometic 59516-531 steal trip...


You need to borrow a clamp on style amp gauge, and check amp draw on black wire in box where hydro wires connect. (PLEASE, be careful, and if not experienced in this type of test, don't try it, due to likelihood of getting a shock. ) If it's the compressor kicking in that's causing the breaker to trip, and capacitor is good, then it's usually a problem with either low incoming (supply) 110-120 AC voltage, which will cause high amperage draw, or compressor on it's way out causing high amp draw. If it's only drawing 15-18 amps, and your tripping a 20 amp breaker, then breaker is getting weak.

Ckl60-1 having a prob with the condensor tripping


Could be a few things wrong here. If it only happens when the unit is starting up, I recommend getting what's called a "kick start" capacitor. You can buy them at most HVAC supply houses, and they're very easy to install (just turn off the power first, and if you're uncomfortable working on 240 Volts, please find someone who is experienced).

The older a compressor gets, the more apt it is to have some resistance in the coil windings. These kick start capacitors essentially give the compressor a "boost" to get started. One reason that your breaker may be tripping is due to what's called an "inrush current". Compressors (and other inductive motors/loads) use a large surge of electricity to start running. This surge can become larger as the compressor ages, and can exceed the threshold of the breaker.

Whatever you do, DO NOT replace the breaker with a higher amperage breaker. This effectively just makes the wires in your walls a large heating element, and is a good way to burn down your house.

If, however, your breaker trips after the condensing unit has been running a long time (or on very hot days), try cleaning the coils. Most people don't realize that the outdoor coils should be cleaned regularly, and when the get covered in dust/dirt/pollen, they can't reject heat. As a result the Freon pressure gets higher and higher inside the compressor, which can cause the amp draw to rise dramatically.

Good luck.

there is a process to go thru for checking the unit to see which part is causing the problem. first thing, listen to the compressor when it first tries to start. if the compressor does nothing and the breaker trips then you will have to check the compressor. turn off the power to unit.
remove the cover on the compressor where the wires enter the compressor, remove the wires from the compressor you will have 2 terminals that are sealed into the compressor check with a ohm meter and from one terminal to ground and see if you get a reading you should not get a reading to ground on either one of these two terminals. if you do your compressor is bed

Inside the air is blowing, but the outside unit fan isn't moving at all. HOUSE IT HOT!!!


Two things; outside does the compressor try to come on? If not you may have a switch\Thermotat problem. Also make sure the breaker to the outside unit hasn't tripped. If it has tripped there may still be a problem after you turn the breaker back on. If it's only the fan that's not coming on outside you will need a new capacitor or fan motor and compressor(if the fan motor is replaced you should have a new capacitor also. If it has been intensely hot your unit might have just gotten overworked. Then resetting the breaker is all that is needed. If you have continuos resettings you MUST call a qualified HVAC Tech.

Sounds like a wiring problem between the outdoor unit and the house. You would be surprised what I have come across in 30+ years of A/C work.
But it could also be the compressor.

I will need to know answers to the following -

Does the compressor have a soft start (2 wire capacitor looking device that attaches to the run capacitor), hard start (relay and capacitor), or just the run capacitor?

Were the run capacitors and start components replaced when the compressor was replaced?

Is the breaker a GFI breaker, or just a standard breaker?

Rain or humidity is not usually a factor, but it may be something.

Tripping the circuit breaker means that something is shorted out. A fan motor or the compressor, most likely. Disconnect the compressor or turn the thermostat up so high the compressor doesn't start. If the breaker still trips, the fan motor or its capacitor are the problem. If the breaker stays on, the compressor or its capacitor are causing the problem.
