The motor is bad. It overheats inside and the contacts aren't releasing and this trips the breaker to prevent more damage, You can reset it because it had time to cool down and the contacts have released.

What would cause my emerson quiet kool air conditioner 10GC13-L to keep tripping the breaker?


It probably has something shorted to ground or the compressor or motors are stuck causing a high amperage problem. The breaker is probably fine but it also could be weak but normally its the compressor or a component has faulted to the compressor. If the unit immediately trips breaker its probably shorted to ground. If the unit struggles to start and a few seconds pass before it trips then it may be a component fault.

Check fan cage to make sure it turns freely. Check voltage to IFM make sure it is correct for the application. Make sure the motor turns the fan cage in the correct direction. IFM will have high and low speed make sure when you change from fan on to auto that the motor changes speed. If you have an amp draw meter check to see when running the motor pulls the amp load it is rated for. Recheck all wiring.

My air compressor trips the breaker before starting up, it seems to have a hard time winding up to speed then kicks house breaker.


Are you sure your breaker is Motor rated ? you see often a motor will draw 3-4 times the amount or run current at startup, you normally need a special breaker for such a thing, or at least a breaker that will accommodate the "In rush" current at startup. That is always assuming there is no short between Phase and Neutral/Earth. Please check. In the "old"days a "Fuse" had enough headroom to do this some breakers are real pedantic about trip currents, as they should be.

Circuit breaker trips after 10 minutes


could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current

Blowing the breaker


Sounds like you have a bad nutural feeding to the main or its set up for 110 and running on 220. Check the incomming voltage at the wire feed to the motor. If anyone has replaced a breaker or a wall plug close to the unit or any palce in the structure Im betting this feeds back to your air compressor some how. and somethign is differant than it used to be.
Their is no way it could turn faster unless the voltage is way up. Chack the Name plate also on the motor some are dual voltage and maybe its wired up for low volts and on higher. Catch it early like tbhis and it will be ok.
PLEASE RATE ME ACCORDINGLY I THIS HELPS. And GOOD LUCK

High speed spa pump shuts off


The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.
