Landing gear stops for 30 seconds and then starts again under load


I don't work on these, but it sounds like an internal breaker for the motor. Motor old? could be pulling to many amps, gets hot and trips the breaker.

X2 francis francis trips breaker when plugged in?


Hi
Tripping the breaker is usually a bad heating element. You have to check each heating element to determine which element is bad (2 on and X2). Use an ohms meter and check the 2 elements on each boiler for a reading of between 12 and 16 ohms. If no reading that is the bad element. Its in an aluminum boiler so lubricate the end of the bolts(threads) before you try to remove them or they might break.

Could be either. But, I suspect that wiring is getting hot enough to trip the breaker. Check all of your wiring to see if there is a hot spot or insulation melted.

My unit is tripping the main breaker what should i look at first


With this cold weather, -- it is not likely tripping off because it is too hot!

Are you familiar with the history of this unit?-- Like has it tripped in the past during HOT weather?
This might be a clue, that the circuit is really loaded close to its limit--

This leads to the next possibility: That the breaker is getting weak (They do after many hard starting loads!
Now-- If you can get the system to start and run for just a few seconds-- can you put a Clamp around Amp meter on the wires?-- and read the full load current?
How close is this to the rating of the circuit breaker?
Is the breaker, and the wire size marginal?

Another thing to look for, is loose lug screws at the main fuses, and the Main contactors, and the motor leads--- for loose wires result in overheating, which raises the current, and leads to tripping, too.

How long ago was the condenser cleaned-- this leads to high amp draw too.

But the first thing would be to learn more about the age of the Main Breaker, and what the 'normal' run current is for that system.

Pump just hums but wont start


Sounds like its frozen and causing a very heavy load on your circuit. If the motor gets hot within seconds, its shot and needs replacing. Have you attempted to turn the motor over by hand ?

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

Jaccuzi hot tub will not heat?


sounds like it maybe the heater again. Have you pulled it out and checked the ohms? it should be at least 10.5 ohms
it could be the thermostat or the pressure switch - if either of those are not working it will not heat either.
