Possible loose connections on the wires to the breakers,
or in the unit. loose connections casuse the wire to overamp and trip the breaker.
Also it's possible the breaker it's self is bad.
there ar also other possibilites but the 2 formentioned is the most common cause.

Breaker keeps tripping on outside air conditioner unit


The compressor is probably drawing to many amps. Breaker could be weak also.. Need to check the amp draw on the compressor.

If the breaker is hot when it blows, the compressor is probably going bad.

Air conditioner runs for several minutes then


Take it back to the dealer and have them fix it, could be a compressor froze up or a fan froze up. If you disconnect the compressor and turn it on and it trips the breaker the fan is probably
bad. If you disconnect the Fan and turn it on and it trips the breaker
it is you compressor.

AC breaker trips after 10 minutes


Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)
