Question about Heating & Cooling
The problem could be too many appliances are being run on the same circuit. Unplug or relocate appliances that share the same circuit.
Time delay fuse or circuit breaker of the wrong capacity is being used. Replace with a time delay fuse or circuit breaker of the correct capacity (see "Electrical Requirements" in the Installation Instruction).
An extension cord is being used. Do not use an extension cord with your air conditioner.
Also check the AC outlet, to see if the connections are ok, because bad connection could cause this, try another AC outlet.

There are few possibilities that has to be checked.
First thing is that you check connecting your Ac to any other power outlet.In many cases this will not be possible.No problem.If you have any other high voltage electric appliance like heater,microwave,washing machine,etc etc then connect that to that outlet and check.If it works properly then your electric line is ok.If the other appliance also shows that same problem then its the electric line problem.
But if electric line checked out ok.Then its the problem of any of the ac component weak and due to that its getting overheated and this is tripping the fuse outside the house.
Things to check in ac are
1 bad compressor.2 bad run capacitor.3 bad start relay and capacitor if it has one.4 bad breaker. 5 bad fan motor.
In some units there is start up relay and in some there is start up capacitor.Its beside the compressor.
Either the Air Conditioner compressor is bad, or the breaker is bad. Since breakers are a lot cheaper than compressors, you may want to replace that first. If the breaker is old, it is a good possibility. But if the breaker is new, it may be the compressor.
Get the ac voltage checked by the meter if you are familiar with testing volts from meter in other case get this checked by the electrician.
