SOURCE: My whirlpool refrigerator trips the main power

Pankaj, Do you have a ohm meter? Sounds like you have something shorting back. First take the meter to the cord. On the end of the cord, you should show no continuity from each male prong to the ground prong on the cord itself. If you show continuity, you have something shorting back. Then I would start with the compressor, Unplug the wires going to the overload and relay, make sure the units unpluged and meter the cord again. If it's ok, then the problem is in the overload and relay. Start there and let me know, if it still showing a short, then we will have to go to the controls, heater, and repeat the process until you find the culprit. Catriver.

SOURCE: re: LG lfd22860 refrigerator. Breaker tripped

No, there is a built in fuse that has failed and the whole board has to be replaced. Behind the refrigerator is rectangular panel where the control board is located. Not sure of the part number because of different model variations.
Hope this helps.

Maytag GS2126PADW fridge trips safety switch (earth leakage detector) after about 30 minutes. It's not caused by defrost heater.


The house that you live in might be using ADCI instead of GFCI. The newer protection is ARC FAULT DETECTION CIRCUIT INTERRUPTION. It can sense a SPARK and shut down the circuit.

BREAKER TRIP AFTER 8 MINS .WORKED ONLY ON PERMANENT PRESS FOR A YR NORMAL ..WOULD TRIP BREAKER ON LOW AND HEAVY SETTING AFTER 5 MINS CYCLE.


This problem might be in your house electrical system rather than the dryer but it will take some troubleshooting to figure it out.
1. First make sure that you are connected to a 30 amp circuit breaker. If not then that is the problem!
2. Use a clamp on amp meter to see what the dryer is drawing from your electrical panel before it trips. If it is below the rating of the 30 amp circuit breaker when it trips, then your circuit breaker is defective.
3. If the dryer is drawing more than 30 amps it is in your machine and you will need to troubshoot that. Since you stated the times - is it always the same and does not vary? Then you have to figure out what you dryer is doing at the 8 minute mark and each machine is a little different. Soem machines go into a tumble air only mode for the first few minutes before kicking on the heating elecment. If yours is that was then it is the heating element, thermostat or something to do with the heating circuit.

Unit comes on and runs for 5 minutes, the circuit trips off


30 is the correct size breaker for this unit. It sounds like there is a grounding issue going on in the system. Or off of the Thermostat. Something is grounding out causing the switch to trip. Are you running #10 wire to breaker and the unit? If not you will need to increase your wire size

My Whirpool Refrigerator tripping the electric supply in regular intervals inspite of all electrical intallations are okay


Unless there is a dedicated circuit of 20 amps to the refrigerator this will continue to happen When your refrigerator goes into defrost and other things like lights fans air conditioners are on the same circuit it will have no choice to not trip the breaker. Try this turn the breaker off and how may thing in your house stop working? You need a 20 AMP circuit or this will possibly damage the compressor or weaken the breaker because it has tripped so many time. Thanks, Please rate my solution, I have done this work for 30 years. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Clothes Dryer tripping house circuit breaker


If it is breaking the main circuit of the house there is something wrong. It should throw the breaker to the dryer only. It sounds like you are having a problem with a short between the main breaker and sub panel in the house. Is there any way you can move the breaker in the panel to a different place on the same panel to see if it is that circuit only. If not check the outlet and the plug on the dryer and make sure the wiring is connected correctly.

Dryer trips circuit breaker smell almost like something burning coming from dryer


In order to trip a circuit breaker, there is almost for sure, a dead short to ground. Takes quite a bit to trip a breaker. The smell is most likely something electrical burning. Stop resetting the breaker and have it checked out. Continous resetting and tripping can cause more damage. The breaker is doing it's job.

Hoover HDC7FM condensor dryer starts then cuts out


Open the dryer door (right after the breaker trips) and check for a burned smell. If it smells in the dryer, you probably have a direct short in the dryer wiring. Check for a burn smell at the wall socket. There may be a short in the socket itself, but not likely unless a mouse is lying across the contacts in the wall.
If everything checks ok replace the circuit breaker if this is an older home. Circuit breakers weaken after years of use. A 30 amp circuit breaker will trip at a much lower amperage after a period of years especially if it has tripped often.

Dryer trips house circuit breakers when I turn it on.


Hello rarakaki,
I assume that you are referring to an electric dryer and that when you run it, it trips the main house breaker. If that is correct, then you may be running too many appliances simultaneously and that will draw curent , beyond the maximum rated value of your house main breaker. It is also possible that your main breaker may be going bad and tripping below it rated current value. I suggest you do the following: Shut off other appliances or electrical equipment in other rooms and then try running your dryer. If it operates and does not trip the main breaker , then the comments stated above are the problem. You may need to have an electrician replace your main breaker and/or change your service to a higher value. Please get back to me if I am incorrect in understanding your problem. Regards,
Rick
