AC trips circuit breaker not long after a recent power outage.


Sounds like your compressor is shorted to ground. If you are able, unhook compressor, wrap wires and restart. If breaker doesn't trip than u know.

It's possibly the circuit breaker rather than the dryer itself. Usually when it trips, it is overloaded or shorted. Overload can be a result of a loose connection or a bad heating element,when you remove the old breaker, see if it has some noticeable burn/corrosion marks where the wire is screwed down, I think replacing the breaker will fix the problem. Hope this helped Tim

Current (amps) is voltage (volts) divided by resistance (ohms) or I=v/r. Breakers "trip" when there is too much current flowing through them. This can be caused by wiring that is too small for the application or a short (or a bad breaker, but since you just replaced that).

Cable Size:
The conductors have resistance and heat up when current runs through them. Properly sized conductors allow this heat to be dissipated. Long cable runs or cable runs which are tightly bundled with other cables can prevent this dissipation. Heat adds additional resistance which in turns causes more heat, eventually tripping the breaker to prevent a fire. For a 40 amp breaker, the cable should be a dedicated, 8 gauge wire.

Short:
A short (low impedance connection) can be between two conductors or between one conductor and ground (also called a ground fault). Shorts can be tough to track down when they are intermittent. This can be because the insulation was damaged (during installation, by rodents, etc). Moisture can deteriorate insulation or conductors.

It may only be present under certain conditions, so you can try this immediately following a trip. Shut both the breaker and the cutoff at the condenser (you want to isolate the cable), then use a meter to check for bleed between each of the conductors and each other conductor or ground. The neutral eventually connects to ground so it will have zero impedance. If you find there is a connection, you (or your electrician if you don't know what you're doing) will have to track it down and repair it.

It could be a clamp that is too tight where the line enters a jbox or panel, a staple that was driven too far and is biting into the insulation, a bend that is too tight, or a length that isn't supported well and subjected to vibration from a nearby motor .

Other possibilities:
At 40 Amps they'd be really expensive, but are you using a GFI or Arc-Fault breaker? Either of those could cause unwanted tripping.

Good luck with it.

Torpedo pump...I have one when I plug it in...it trips breaker


I had the exact same issue. I left mine out for the winter and when I plug it in, the breaker trips. My warranty was up so my friend took it apart. The seal had broken alowing water to leak into the bottom the pump where the wires connect to top of motor. This is supposed to be water free and is protected by several seals.

I am currenlty trying to put sealant where the cord goes into unit to stop water from going in. I will let you know how that works.

One tip my friend recommeded is to make sure there is no stress on the cord as it appears this seal is weak and and kind of stress will break it. hope this helps -- Rob

You might try pulling the plug on the unit and leaving it overnight. The electronics may have locked up due to irregular voltage during the failure. There may also be a GFI (ground fault interrupter) on that circuit that has tripped for the same reason. Check the kitchen outlets for a tripped GFI.

Breaker keeps tripping when I use Amana NED5500TQ electric dryer.


Heating element or motor. Usually heating element. Replace limit switch (inside dryer) during repair. Limit switch should shut off before breaker if working correctly.

After repair clean or replace plug/wire. Inspect or replace receptacle in wall.

When turning on central air, our main electrical breaker is tripping. This is a brand new home barely over 1 year old. Should the AC have a warranty not covered by a builders contract??


Builders give a one year warranty but your air conditioner has five years on all parts. Anything outside the unit is not covered under the ac warranty. Breakers,stopped up drain and dirty coils.
