Question about Ryobi Circular Saw W/Dual Laser

1 Answer

My Delta radial saw motor keeps tripping the GFCI circuit. I've tried several separate circuits and they all trip as soon as I turn on the motor (even a 20 amp dedicated circuit). I took off the motor housing and blew it out clean with my air compressor. Still no dice. Any thoughts? Thanks, Phil Wendt

Saws draw a lot of amps at start up and will normally blow any GFi circuit, if it does the same in a normal outlet,, you might have to disassemble your saw for a good cleaning and lube,,

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

My tub keeps tripping the breaker, but after it kools down I can trip the breaker back on, but it hits 100 and trips the breaker again, could this be the heater?


What Trips?
  • the "Actual" electrical circuit breaker?
    • Is it GFCI Style?
or...
  • Is the high limit switch tripping?,
    • which isn't actually a breaker.
  • A circuit breaker is a breaker that toggles as a switch, and to reset it you have to switch the toggle switch ALL the way to Off position to reset, then switch it to on.
    • Same thing if it were a GFCI style, it just has a 'Test' button on the body of the breaker, that button is usually a white rectangular button.
  • Some systems have a GFCI breaker that looks totally differnent from above... It's located on the control system itself, very similar to what you may have in your bathroom or kitchen of your home! It will have a 'Test' button AND a 'Reset' button.
A High Limit Switch, acts like a breaker, as it will trip when it senses a temperature greater that it is set for as a safe temperature. Once that temp is breached, it will trip.

So... Which one is tripping for you? What are you resetting to turn it back on?
if circuit breaker, it has nothing to do with the 100 degree temp you mentioned. If that trips,= electrical problem, either a short or overheated electrical appliance (internal wires) aging motor pulling too much current, loose electrical connections generate heat, etc.
if High Limit, then possible overheat of water? Many times, failed thermostat. I already know what you're thinking... But I never saw water get Hot! But... Many times that IS just the case , it's just you never noticed the water hot, and it has been cooling down when you saw it.

Gfci trips heater not turned on


GFI is Ground Fault Interrupter (or GFCI - Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) It is doing its job, telling you that there is a short in the unit or wiring. Have a certified electrician check the wiring and unit.

Trips circuit breaker when turn on.


This tool needs to be on a 20 amp breaker. And not a GFCI. GFCI breakers are very sensitive to high amp start up motors.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Hello

Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

Gfci breaker for spa


gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.

Delta Radial arm saw 33-990 tripping circuit breaker


More than likely motor but try this , if you have a wrap around amp probe or can borrow one or purchase a cheap one place the amp probe around the positive wire connected to panel breaker ,with meter on proper scale ,start saw and read probe current , if cap bad current will be high and stay until breaker trips , if motor will start high on start ,then low then ,very high and breaker will trip , be careful in panel working around live circuits , the reason it reads this way is because as the motor warms the laminates it the armature separate and cause the increase in current to spike ,if cap bad never gets to speed and has high current draw constantly , to verify cap(1) remove from circuit (2)place a screw driver across terminals to release any charge (3), then take ohm meter on ohms place meter leads on terminals one on each terminal at same time meter will rise and fall back(4) reverse leads and should rise and fall as before if it does this it is more than likely good a lot of electrical reasons for this but this will tell you what you wanted to know , good luck

The fridge keep tripping the GFCI. I reset it and one minute later it trips again. I even tried it on a different GFCI circuit, still trip. Thank you


Refigerators should NOT be on GFI-protected circuits. Problems have occasionally been reported when plugging a refrigerator, freezer or other motor-driven appliance into GFI-protected circuits. These appliances generally have a motor that pulls significant startup current. Due to the electrical characteristics of motors, the startup current can look like someone getting electrocuted, causing the protection system to trip. The best remedy is to connect these appliances to a non-GFI outlet. Usually outlets that are expected to serve such appliances will not have GFI's installed.
