Question about GE APN08AA Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My GE ape08akm1 AC unit blows fuses in my apartment. It's a 15A dedicated plug, no carbon deposit in the fuse receptacle, Switched from breaker fuses, to P type to D type, no difference. It will run for 20 min to 2 hours, but invariably pops the fuse. Would like any suggestions if you have them.

Blowing breaker

In general house hold circuit breaker of the house is 15 Amps or 20 Amps.

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.

The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.

To isolate your problem:

1. Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .

2. If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:

2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances

2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)

2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)

I have a travel trailer every time it gets 90 or higher outside it will blow the fuse. I have went on top and cleaned it good but no change. any ideas thanks

Where do you have it plugged in to? Is it plugged in with 30amp plug to receptacle. Which breaker is tripping, the one for AC only, or the main breaker for trailer, or breaker at plug in?

Hello, I recently bought a Mackie Profx8 mixer here in the UK and I cannot locate the fuse. The AC socket does not have the fuse tray underneath (unlike my Mackie speakers) and there is no indication...

Essentially if the fuse goes, the unit is rendered useless until it is repaired. Replacing the fuse without repairing would likely cause further damage in the unit. Fuses blow for a reason that is usually a failure in the unit. Failures don't fix themselves. The ability to replace the fuse is therefore a moot point. To keep your unit safe ALWAYS power all interconnected equipment from the SAME power receptacle or conditioning module. This means running extension cords to powered speakers if that is what you have to get power the mixer. Powering mixers at one end of a room from a receptacle and the amps or speakers from a recpetacle on a stage at the other end will likely damage you equipment when a ground fault occurs or ground bounce in the building wiring ruptures the sensitive input/output circuits of your equipment.

Oven dead after turning fuses off and on.

Yes you can. I am a licensed electrician and have seen it happen several times. However, if you replace the fuse and it blows again stop and check to see if you have a ground problem. You will need a volt/ohm meter to do this. Any hardware or Walmart will have a cheap one, which is all you will need. Most ovens in the home are 240 volt ac. You may have a three or four wire systems depending on how old the unit is. One wire is a ground, and is a protection wire that will trip the breaker or blow the fuse instead if shocking you if any power goes to the outer case.. It is usely green or yellow with a green stripe. In older units it also was used as a return for the 120vac devices on the unit (Lights, Controls, etc.) This wasn't very safe and new units have four wires, one dedicated to the return line.
All that said, you check it by first unplugging the oven and turning the breaker back on or replacing the fuse. If it doesn't trip or burn out, plug the unit back in. If nothing goes wrong you are good to go. If it does trip, call a service man of frind with an electrical background to check it out. Most oven problems are not that hard to fix, just expencive depending on the part.

We have an admiral capacity plus dryer that was hard wired into a home. We have bought it and wondered if it is possible to put a 30amp plug on it and plug it into a socket?

No. It needs a separate, dedicated, 30A supply circuit. Depending upon which country you're in the regular circuits are rated far below that: in Europe for example, it's usually 13A or 15A.

Plug your dryer into a regular circuit and it will trip the breaker if one is fitted (should be!) or blow the circuit fuse if the property has an old wiring system.
