Question about Eaton ARC FAULT CIRC BREAKER
They are sensitive little ****, I know they won't work on a florescent fixture, no lights should be on it anyway, but just in case, and the slightest thing wrong, one wire off, one ground undone, it will snap off. And they do go bad, so don't tear the house down to find the trouble when the breaker might be bad. Hook the wire into an existing 15 amp breaker and see if it snaps that off. Then you will know it is not the breaker but something in the wall. Check it out.

You will solve the problem of the breaker tripping but you'll create a fire hazard as the wiring may overheat because of what you are drawing through the line. If you need a higher amp circuit breaker for the load you are creating on the line, you need to make sure the wiring can also handle the extra load. You'd be way better off by spreading the load over several different circuits or installing another line to reduce the load on the line that's tripping the breaker.

It's definitely not related to the 20 Amp breaker. You do mean GFCI, right? The kind built into the end of the cord on the air conditioner, right? The GFCI is either detecting a ground fault (which means it's doing it's job and there is something wrong with the cord or the unit) or you have a bad GFCI. If the GFCI is in the wall receptacle, that could be a different story.

unplug the appliance that is overloading the breaker.
reset the breaker, plug in the appliance. if the breakers pops, then the appliance is the problem.
you may want to check the appliace manual and make sure the breaker is rated for the appliance you are using.
