Why is it tripping?! what can i try next? thanks


Is their not two elements, one at the top too? If it is tripping on the high limit switch it could be the thermostat Try checking the grounding of the unit.

Gfci trips heater not turned on


GFI is Ground Fault Interrupter (or GFCI - Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) It is doing its job, telling you that there is a short in the unit or wiring. Have a certified electrician check the wiring and unit.

Power trips out when jets are switched on


I'm going on somewhat limited information here not knowing if the tub is newly installed or if this is a spa that has been working in the past and just started doing this. It would be helpful to know if this is a recently installed pump as well. That said here are a few things to check.
If it's a new install: Your electrician has more than likely wired the spa incorrectly. Be sure that the spa pack has 220V going into the pack and that the GFCI is wired correctly.
If it's an old spa with a new problem: A lot of times a bad heater element can cause a spa to trip the breaker. If you have a bad element the spa will operate normally for about a minute when you turn the power on, then trip the breaker as soon as the heater kicks in.
If it only trips the breaker when the pump is turned on to high speed, more than likely there is a problem with the wiring of the pump or the relay on the pump itself.

As soon as I plug in my 2007 F-350 it trips the GFCI plug. I am an electrician and I check the ohm's and it all seems good?


The truck heater is pulling a few amps and if the gfci plug has a weak switch, it will trip it. change the gfci plug and try that.

When furnace runs blower won't run.as soon as furnace stops blower runs. They never both run.


Sounds like fan limit switch/fan timer

This will cause the main burner to run untill the over tempreture switch is tripped therefore shuting gas supply and running fan on high till over heat condition is resolved then it will restart burner and repeat
continuing to run heater like this will cause heat exchanger split.

My machine flicks the mains switch as soon as i turn it on, both washing and drying. it first flicked the safety switch about halfway through a dry load...what could it be?


Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

This sounds like a heater issue since it's tripping the power on both the wash & dryer, in events of overheating the machine will trip your power for safty & to prevent the risk of fire however since you mention that it trips the power as soon as you switch it on you could have a blocked pump or burnt out motor too if your finding that the machine is tripping the power earlyer & earlyer each time you retry i would focas on the motor or the pump 1st

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys..
remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

Hotpoint WDM 73 keeps tripping ringmain when powered on


I suspect that the problem is probably being caused by a fault on the dryer element or thermostat.
Remove the top cover and disconnect the heater, and see what happens..
If it does not trip, then prob is the dryer element or stat.
Hope this helps.

Suddenly tripped off house


Hi akula, 200 ks to a fridgie, LG appliance, you must be in Australia;) Is it the earth leakage circuit breaker operating. If so, then you have a leakage problem to earth from the heater pad(not quite sure what that is, but this problem will need to be repaired. Am doing some research to see if there is anything that can be done without just getting a new fridge. Back to you soon.

regards

Miele novotronic 510 keeps tripping fuses


Possibly the heater bank. Try running it on cool air, still same problem, then you will need to post more info. IE. Does it trip when you switch it on via the button?
Does it trip as soon as you press start?
Does it trip after a seconds of mins after you start it?
