Be sure circuit in house is not the problem. Use extension cord to plug into outlet in another room.

Hoover Refrigerator Model B38tf. Causes earth leakage circuit breaker to trip. Has just started to occur in last week. What is likely cause and what rectification can be applied?


If you're referring to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker tripping, a refrigerator should not be plugged into a GFCI circuit because of the sudden load it requires to start the compressor, etc when it kicks on. The GFCI breakers are meant to be very sensitive, and over time the sudden energy demands caused by a refrigerator can weaken the breaker's threshold, causing them to trip often. Try connecting the refrigerator to another circuit that isn't on a GFCI breaker. If there are no other circuits nearby, you may wish to replace the GFCI breaker with a standard breaker, and replace the receptacles with GFCI receptacles, except of course, the one the refrigerator is plugged into. Be sure and consult and use a qualified electrician for this. Hope this helps..

The jenn-air fridge that i have jcd2289ae has stopped working it is tripping the gfi, i have tried plugging it in another plug in but it trips the breaker


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Jenn-air-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-JCD2289AEQ/1266/0165000/M0406284/00012?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= here is a simplified wiring diagram for your unit. It might help you track back the problem.

Before it started tripping the circuit breaker what was your refrigerator doing that was not normal? Usually, before something fails massively it will give you hints it is coming. Did your ice maker or lights stop working? Has the compressor been running an excessively long time?

What trips a breaker is the unit drawing more current that what the breaker is listed at. So something in the unit has shorted to cause this to happen. Although the first thing we check in a situation like this is the compressor circuit it isn't always the cause.

I have a Proform XT 90 treadmill that was recently purchased. After I brought it home, I plugged into my power strip and everything worked fine. Yesterday I plugged it in and nothing lights up on the...

A couple likely issues would be:
1. Is the starter key installed correctly?
2. Has the onboard circuit breaker tripped? The breaker reset is next to the on/off switch, which is on the lower front of the unit. Press the button once firmly. If this was the problem, the treadmill should work again immediately. If the onboard circuit breaker trips repeatedly, there may be a short circuit in the machine, in which case you may be at risk of shock if the unit is not repaired properly.
3. Has the circuit breaker or fuse for the particular outlet you are using tripped? Try plugging another electrical appliance into the outlet. Does it get power? If the circuit breaker or fuse has tripped, that particular circuit may be overloaded or faulty. Only an electrician could tell you for sure.

Please followup if you need further assistance.

My Heat Surge was working fine, then it just went out. It is plugged in, but when I tried to start it again, it wouldn't light. HELP!


Tirn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF. Unplug the unit for 12 to 15 minutes. This should allow the unit to reset itself. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master Switch to ON. If it reset itself, it should work normally. If it doesn't test the wall outlet it's plug into to make sure it still has power. Unplug the heater and plug in a lamp to see if it works. If it doesn't the circuit breaker in your homes breaker panel has been tripped and needs to be reset. More than likely, your Heat Surge Heater tripped the breaker, because of a malfunction.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Microwave trips circuit breaker when plugged in repeats when breaker is reset . There is no problem with house electric.


The circuit is probably a 20Amp circuit (see the number stamped on the circuit breaker switch). Most likely, it is the same circuit as the refrigerator, crock pot, window A/C unit, etc....

Also, if you are using an extension cord or a power strip or a surge protector. Those may not have a high enough power rating.

One other possibility (not likely) is that the circuit breaker is a 15Amp and the microwave is 1500 watts.

What else is cut off when the circuit breaker is tripped?

Solution is to use a different outlet for the microwave, or turn off any other applicance in the same circuit (except the refrigerator, of course).

Hope this helps!

Circuit breaker trips when turning unit on. only unit on circuit has triped on several circuits can find no shorts on wiring.


DOES IT BLOW THE BRAKER AS SOON AS IT TURNS ON OR DOES IT TAKE A FEW SECONDS. INSTANTLY WOULD MORE LIKELY BE A SHORT IF FEW SECONDS THE COMPRESSOR IS PROBABLY DRAWING MORE AMPS THAN THE BREAKER CAN HANDLE SO IT BLOWS. TRY TAPPING THE COMPRESSOR NEXT TIME YOU ATTEMPT A HOUSE CURRENT START UP. i HAVE A WINDOW AIR CONDITIONER THAT NEEDS TAPPED FOR STARTUP FOR THE SUMMER SEASON. GOOD LUCK

Maytag stove mer6769baq trips the breaker whenever plugged in


It sounds to me like there is a short circuit either in the plug or the connections at the stove. It could also be within the stove although that seems very unlikely. If this happens when your using the stove, the breaker and circuit could be undersized (required breaker size-50AMPS) Check all wires and the breaker.

Circut Breaker trips


  • i have no experience with RV units but if it were in a house i would suspect a bad breaker or a problem with the outlet itself. breakers  only trip when the wiring is gets hot.
  • unless it is a ground fault breaker (usually on the outlet) then this would trip if the flow of electricity is grounded. ground fault breakers do go bad often.
  • i think if the refrigerator itself had a problem then it would be consistent (as far as it is pulling amps anyway). not work fine sometimes and not others.
