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.

I have a tcl split system air con when you turn it on it runs for a while then when the compressor and fan come on it blows the circuit breaker at the meter box.

in most cases like this (circuit breaker tripping at compressor switch On ) compressor is burnt out ! A Meg ohms test Leakage to earth would confirm this

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.

Not working

If the circuit breaker tripped,then the unit is trying to work and the remote is certainly telling the unit operate, otherwise it could never trip the breaker if it did not receive a signal from the remote. Your problem may be with the outside unit that te compressor is stalled (having a hard time starting ) and this will cause the breaker to trip. You need a porfessional to diagnose if it is the starter control, or relay, or capacitor, or bad compressor, or bad terminals.

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.
