Check the fuses in you disconnect easy way if you have a meter check across line top L1-L2 should have 208-230, same on load side should have same voltage. if not bad fuse. check and see when the unit starts up if the fan spins. if so fan is probably good. if the units trips as soon as you flip the breaker the compressor is probably shorted or you have a shorted wire. if it takes a good 10 seconds i wold test the capacitor in uF. if you are not good with electric or using test equipment i would recommend calling someone. hope this was some what of help to you.

Duo Therm A/C (2009 Sabre RV) won't shut off


bad compressor relay on control board. The relay is not opening the circuit, allowing the compressor to stay running when unit is turned off. This overheats the compressor and opens a thermal disk shutting the compressor off. When thermal disk cools down, the compressor restarts under load and trips breaker.

Ruud achiever 10 seer breaker keeps tripping


Sounds like a short to ground problem with either the motor windings shorting to ground or a high voltage wire shorting.

Unit comes on and runs for 5 minutes, the circuit trips off


30 is the correct size breaker for this unit. It sounds like there is a grounding issue going on in the system. Or off of the Thermostat. Something is grounding out causing the switch to trip. Are you running #10 wire to breaker and the unit? If not you will need to increase your wire size

Breaker trips on roof top RV A/C


check your breaker is it hot to the touch?
check the wire tightness at the breaker?
remove the circuit breaker and inspect the terminals on the breaker and in the panel and the breaker itself for signs of overheating and discoloration due to the fact
check the connections at the unit itself
check that you have proper voltage to your unit
find the nameplate and look for FLA full load amp draw
is the breaker properly sized for the unit and is the wire size correct for the breaker?
(Check nameplate on unit)
buy a clamp on amp meter and see if it is under or over the nameplate rating when unit is running
take great care when you venture into electric,if you arent comfortable find someone who is.
you may have a weak breaker if all the above pass?
Replace it

Keeps tripping breaker when running ac

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.

Breaker keeps tripping


If the breaker itself is more than 15 years old, replace it. If it continues to switch off, check the amp draw of both the inside and outside unit.
