Can the motor control board cause the house circuit breaker to trip?


It's unlikely. An internal fuse would blow first, I'm assuming. If you've diagnosed this far you sound capable of continuing. Electricity is dangerous!!! I would remove all things from the board, 1 by 1 plug each component into board until the breaker trips. That should pinpoint what is tripping breaker. I would assume a motor.

My hot tub trips the GFCI. THe GFCI holds when I disconnect the wires running into the hot tub. I have disconnected EVERYTHING from the circuit board including the heater and the GFCI still trips.


Sounds like wet or bad wiring somewhere but u should do a visual inspection of all the wires & connections first then through process of elimination. Turn off breaker disconnect all wires and connect one wire then turn breaker on & if it dosent pop the. Turn it off and connect one more wire and turn the breaker on & continue until you get the breaker to pop and the last wire or board u just connected is your problem & go from there.

Refrig circuit breaker


It needs to be determined wether it's a dead short or the compressor is bad. A dead short is when the hot (colored) wire is in contact with the neutral (white) wire in a 120 V system.
I would get to the compressor connection box and disconnect the power from the compressor and turn the circuit breaker on. If it trips, it's a wiring problem. If it doesn't trip, the compressor is shorted internally.
As an alternate test to disconnect the compressor, you can turn the thermostat to off and reset the breaker, if it trips, then it's a wiring problem, if it doesn't trip and as soon as you turn the thermostat to on, then you must go to disconnecting the compressor and check it again with the compressor disconnected.
Other tests, an electrical meter is required.

Leaking heat element.
2 GFCI on same circuit.
Rat-chewed wire. Inspect wiring.
Nail through wire.
Melted wire nut in junction box.
Undersized wire and breaker has been overheating breaker, and breaker has gone bad.
Shorted breaker. Move wires to different same-size breaker.

Electric shower just installed cuts out at fusebox after being on for about a minute

Circuit breaker is tripping on electric shower?

This could be absolute danger until more information is known.

1) Breakers trip because they sense heat, because the wire size is too small, or breaker size is mismatched with wire. Or breaker is loose on busbar.
Copy following links to determine correct wiring and breaker:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html

GFCI circuit breaker will trip because of same heat condition described above, and also trip if ground fault is detected.
Water leaking into element will trip GFCI.
Absolutely you need to get this problem fixed before shower is put back into service.
Call electrician, or the installer, or the manufacturer, or all.

We have a 2004 Balboa series spa and the breaker keeps tripping what could cause this? Everything has been working fine.


Understand that this information is beingprovided as-is and without warranty or guarantee. As with all electricalcomponents and devices, all work should be performed by a licensed spa or pooltechnician. Serious injury or death can occur if a component is improperlyrepaired or installed.

There are several reasons the breaker can trip. It could bea bad pump, bad heater, GFCI or wiring issue.... Typically unplugging eachcomponent will help isolate which component is causing the trip. It is rare fora board to cause a breaker trip, so if all components (including both legs ofthe heater) are disconnected and the breaker continues to trip then you move onto wiring or the GFCI.

Furnace keeps tripping the breaker changed breaker and wires all good up to the furnace still keeps tripping when i try to turn power on. nothing happened to the furnace and the wires were tested up to the...


Disconnect the black power wire where it is connected to the furnace with breaker off. Put a wire nut on it and then turn the breaker on. If it continues to trip, the problem is not the furnace and you will have to trace the power wire back to the breaker box to find problem. Next, disconnect the black wire from the breaker (with breaker off) and then snap breaker on. If it trips, bad breaker. If the furnace was disconnected and breaker did not trip, you have a short either on the P C Board or the transformer.
