True model t-19f freezer trips breaker as soon as it is plugged in.checked compressor. Good. Wired in hard start kit. Still tripped breaker.defrost? Or thermostat temp control?


if it is an immediate trip prior to the compressor attempting to start, you will have to start tracing the wiring and look for the cause. These issues can sometimes be very troublesome and difficult to find. If the compressor is tripping the breaker, the winding can be shorted internally to each other. Also, be sure the current relay is functioning properly. A generic 3-in 1 kit has a relay, overload, and capacitor and is easy to install. Cheapest way to replace start components.

My 4.3gal.air compressor runs then trips the breaker.it's a fini 2005 lot90.


From your picture it looks like the compressor has had some hard use and subject to moisture.
  1. Moisture can cause the compressor end to have more friction and overload the motor, especially if it doesn't have a good air filter on the inlet.
  2. Moisture can weaken the motor windings and cause internal short circuits that can cause the breaker to trip.
  3. Moisture can attack the motor and compressor bearings causing the motor to overload.
  4. The pressure switch may malfunction and not turn off at the proper pressure. Too much pressure will overload the motor.
  5. The tank check valve could be clogged
  6. Too long of an extension cord or low voltage can cause this

Breaker breaks


This unit may have an internal overload mounted on top of the compressor. You would have to get to the
compressor to find out and it maybe faulty. That may
explain why the compressor comes on later on, this
overload protects the compressor from getting hot.

When you trip the breaker and then reset it again only to see it trip again almost sounds like a direct short or loose wire. It could also mean that your
capacitor needs to be replaced or that you need a hard start kit and the unit needs a good cleaning.

Try just operating the fan and see if it trips the breaker, if it does then either the blower motor is bad
or it is still the capacitor.

Compressor won't sstay running and trip breaker


You gave a lot of information, but you didn't say if it worked when free wheeling. If not, I would suspect the inertia switch. If it is working, you should hear it click when the motor is winding down after being shut off, at least when free wheeling. A 20 amp breaker will certainly handle a 15 FLA motor, even on startup. They don't trip at 20 amps exactly, especially on a simple overload. Even at twice the rated amperage, it can take several minutes to trip it. They will trip quickly on a dead short, however, or a severe overload. I doubt the windings are shorted or it either wouldn't work (start windings) or would run at a slower speed with the inertia switch constantly tripping in and out with it coasting while tripped in (i.e., accelerate, coast, accelerate, coast, etc.)

Frig keeps overloading circuit breaker, just repaced relay


I think the compressor has a problem with its internal running coil , or it's grounded.To check it you can disconect the power to the compressor and then turn on the breaker , and if doesn't tripped the breaker ,you know the compressor is bad.

Everything works fine, except when the compressor kicks in the panel breaker trips.


Most likely a short in the compressor electrical components (relay, overload,capacitor) Supco makes a 3 in 1 that you could use. If this works fine, if not "bad compressor".

The compressor gets hot and trips the breaker


More than likely what happen was the internal overload in the compressor was tripped and didnt reset for 5 hrs and when it did it popped the breaker. The compressor was probably already shot. Sorry

Breaker relay tripping out


If the unloading valve trips , which i think is the safety valve that tells me the compressor is pumping up past its maximum allowed pressure. that black switch should be the overload switch. check the amps of the wires going to the motor while its running and then look at the name plate of the motor to see the maximum amount of amps that the motor is allowed to draw.

Had theoverload and relay switch replaced still tripping breaker


yes. if you pull all the wires from compressor and use a meter with a continuity bell , touch a copper line and then a compressor terminal. try em all. odds are you'll hear a bell showing continuity or the fact that power can flow directly from the compressor terminal to the chassis= a grounded compressor. or you could have a dead short where the wires in to the compressor aren't touching the case but are touching each other before they go to the motor windings, = a short. either one is an all done situation. time for new .
