Does the compressor try to start and the shuts off or is the breaker slamming off as soon as it is turned on. If it takes a few seconds the comp could be locked up and trying to start, high amps and tripping breaker. Tripping breaker right now would indicate a shorted or grounded compressor. Really would need to be ohmed out with a meter to check for ground. Not good either way.

Condenssor fan moter not working


The condensor fan is usually a capacitor start capacitor run motor.To test i switch the unit on as normal then carefully flick the fan around in the direction of rotation (you may have to take the grill off) to do this,do not use your hand! If the motor starts to run it will be a faulty capacitor, do not leave it running for long as it will not run at full speed and will trip on thermal O/L or burn out.This is a common fault on AC split phase motors that use a capacitor for either starting or start and run.

Sounds like a short to ground problem with either the motor windings shorting to ground or a high voltage wire shorting.

AC unit GOODMAN modelGSC130421AC was working good and today stop working the fan work but the compresor dont start


Check your circuit breakers and fuses. If it tripped breakers or blew fuses it may be because the outdoor coil is stopped up with dirt. If it is wash it out real good with a water sprayer.

Model ls-k2463hl runs as soon as power is turned on at circuit breaker fan speed goes up and down


you possibly have a motor that the windings are bad. These windings swell when power flows through them and in turn the swelling presses onto the shaft causing the problem. Also, I would replace the capacitor first in the event it is bad If the motor runs properly then that capacitor is the only problem. If it doesn't cure the fan problem then the motor is going out. If you change the motor the capacitor will also need to be changed anyway so try changing capacitor first. Good Luck hope I helped you some

Only fans work on split system model ls-k2463hl earth breaker trips when compresor tries to start I own a Panasonic Heat pump model A18CKP6G with the same problem. The compressor was replaced last June...


Sounds like a wiring problem between the outdoor unit and the house. You would be surprised what I have come across in 30+ years of A/C work.
But it could also be the compressor.

I will need to know answers to the following -

Does the compressor have a soft start (2 wire capacitor looking device that attaches to the run capacitor), hard start (relay and capacitor), or just the run capacitor?

Were the run capacitors and start components replaced when the compressor was replaced?

Is the breaker a GFI breaker, or just a standard breaker?

Rain or humidity is not usually a factor, but it may be something.

Reply back what you find.

My GE ductless system is not heating properly and trips breaker


Call them yourself. Let them know your compressor is tripping your breakers. Also, ask how to obtain parts for your system. It's rediculous an hvac tech cannot get advise from ge.

COMPRESOR TROUBLESHOOTING


This is a typical symptom of having an A/C system low on freon if it cycles on and off when first turned on or very soon afterward. All types of A/C units for home and auto have a low pressure cut-out switch that will disengage the compressor when the freon level drops low enough to cause damage to the compressor. The unit needs recharging with the proper amount of freon to correct the problem. If it's an automobile A/C system and the freon level is okay, it could be a faulty compressor clutch or coil.
