I believe you are tripping the breaker because you are too close to the capacity of the breaker based upon the distance from the panel to the heat pump. If you are electrically skilled you could check this by measuring the distance and then looking at the standard to see. If this makes little sense to you, you may need to have an electrician check for u. Either way, good luck with it.

Hi, when you have a little play from side to side just shows very little bearing wear on the blower motor. In and Out play is normal. Spin the wheel to see if it is true. If the blower wheel has a lot of dirt build up on the blades it will cause it to be out of balance.If it is clean, but warped, take it to a motor repair shop along with the model and serial numbers. Call you're local wholesale a/c parts house with all of your info and they will look this up for you.The numbers that you have listed shows you have a 042 which is a 31/2 ton and 048 which is a 4 ton unit. More then likely, the wheel is out of balance and should be replaced, and they can look up the info you are requesting. Good Luck,

Sounds like it could be your transformer. See if you can locate it. It should be in the air handler indoors. Check the voltage going to the transformer and check the output of the transformer. You should have around 24 vac on the output of the transformer. If you don't have voltage on the output make sure you have it on the input (120vac). If you don't have it on the input you need to find out why. If you have it on the input but don't have an output then your transformer is likely gone bad. Let me know what you find.

It is probably a capacitor problem. Check inside the outside unit. you will see a round cylinder with three groups of terminals on top. If the top of it is dome shaped it probably needs to be replaced. You can check it if you have a microfared tester. However if it is poofed out it probably is bad. If this is not the problem you will probably have to replace the fan motor.

Testimonial: "Thank you 'wise_jf', that was extremely helpful and solved the problem. Couldn't find actual replacement part locally, but got an universal at a local HVAC supply store that they setup for me with the same specification for less than $30. Everything is now working back to normal. You just saved me a ton, and helped keep my family (mainly my 1 and 7 yr olds), cool. I love this site. :o)"
