DONT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS WRONG. OUR POWER BILL LAST YEAR WAS 211.00 AND KNOW WITH THISE BILL IS 678.00. IT IS H EATING AN 18X23 ROOM. THE SETTING FOR TEMP. IS ON 72 DEGREES. THIS THING HAS RUN OUR BILL UP...


Simple way to pay less bill with big comfort.
Tips for it: To get proper cold air set temp 23 degree and mode"cool". To get heat set temp 30 degree and mode in "Heat" Clean indoor and out door periodically ( Once in 4 months) Clean Air filter every fortnightly. Avoid frequent opening of the door where it's air conditioned. Avoid keep closing the doors even a/c is switch off. It helps to cool the room next times in short minutes. Use proper breaker, wiring for your air conditioner plug points. Make sure your elect meter is working properly.Check your Elect meter with 1000watts bulb for one hour. It should consume one unit only. Hope, it's helpful.

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year


A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

Fan works, but if A/C turned on, trips breaker within a few minut


You need to verify if the problem is the unit or the breaker.  To do this, you will need to measure the current it is pulling from the power source.
If the unit is pulling too much current, then the unit is the problem.  If the unit is pulling as much or less than its rated current draw, then the circuit breaker is worn out.
The units WILL pull more power when hot outside.  It should not trip a breaker unless something is wrong with either the unit or the breaker.
A current draw test will tell you for sure.
If it's not the breaker, then it's probably low refigerant causing the issue.

Breaker trips on roof top RV A/C


check your breaker is it hot to the touch?
check the wire tightness at the breaker?
remove the circuit breaker and inspect the terminals on the breaker and in the panel and the breaker itself for signs of overheating and discoloration due to the fact
check the connections at the unit itself
check that you have proper voltage to your unit
find the nameplate and look for FLA full load amp draw
is the breaker properly sized for the unit and is the wire size correct for the breaker?
(Check nameplate on unit)
buy a clamp on amp meter and see if it is under or over the nameplate rating when unit is running
take great care when you venture into electric,if you arent comfortable find someone who is.
you may have a weak breaker if all the above pass?
Replace it

AC tripping breaker.


Check its wiring connection. Could be loose connection, corrosion.Or the breaker is already retiring. If the breaker is fairly rated to the aircon unit. Also insect could be the culprit.

Breaker tripping on electric furnace.


First, how old is that breaker and are the connections all clean and tight?  A warm breaker is normal.  If it hot or buzzing, that is another story.  If the breaker is more than a few years old, it may pay to invest in a new one.  They do wear.  If you have a connection which has come loose or is corroded, it will trip the breaker, arc at a connection point or even cause a coil to fail.  Dirty connections heat up and actually back off the holding bolts to the point of failure or to tripping the breaker with arcing.  With the breaker off, inspect all connections from the panel to the unit.  You may get some surprises.
If none of this turns up a problem, inspect the actual heater coil, you may find dirt in there which is causing a problem or the unit itself is failing and touching a grounding point.

Rheem Central Air united stopped working, no hum but power is there


It looks as if the 24 signal from the thermostat is not getting to the contactor. Or possibly the coil in the contactor itself is dead. Or a third option may be a bad control power board in the condensing unit itself. If you feel comfortable reading through these devices comment back. PLEASE REMEMBER THERE IS HIGH VOLTAGE INSIDE THE CONDENSER AND A CAPACITOR.

Breaker keeps tripping


If the breaker itself is more than 15 years old, replace it. If it continues to switch off, check the amp draw of both the inside and outside unit.
