Compressor is locked up, and it's overamping upon startup, OR you have a short to ground from one leg of ur 230v, or the breaker is weak and needs replacing.

Carrier model 38tdb air conditioning unit kicks out the 40 amp breaker. Also moisture under compressor unit outside. What is problem?


What breaker? The breaker for the condenser? Likely have a compressor shorted to ground or drawing locked rotor amps. Easiest way to tell is make sure breaker off, unhook compressor wires from contactor. Turn on breaker and turn on machine. If the breaker does not trip, obviously problem with compressor

What would cause my emerson quiet kool air conditioner 10GC13-L to keep tripping the breaker?


It probably has something shorted to ground or the compressor or motors are stuck causing a high amperage problem. The breaker is probably fine but it also could be weak but normally its the compressor or a component has faulted to the compressor. If the unit immediately trips breaker its probably shorted to ground. If the unit struggles to start and a few seconds pass before it trips then it may be a component fault.

What you need to do is disconnect the compressor at the electrical access on the side of the unit. Check each wire to the grounding screw using ohm meter if you get continuity your compressor is shorted do the same thing for you condenser fan. I bet your compressor is shorted. Make sure power is off and remember where the wires go. Trace the wires that go to compressor back to the contactor and capacitor and disconnect them there. If this help please rate me and do a testimonial.

CONTACTOR TURN OF THE FUZES WHEN START


That is not a good sign, Disconnect the fan and secure the wires, if
it still trips the breaker the compressor is grounded

Air conditioner just conked out;only 3 yrs old


Is the indoor unit operating? If no turn the fan from auto to on at thermostat. If the fan comes on, that is a sign that you have 24volts
present on thermostat side.

Turn AC unit off outside,turn the thermostat as low as it will go. Open the electrical panel to the outdoor unit. There is a contactor located in the unit, push the plastic bar in the middle of contactor. If it pushes
in, you have low voltage wiring problem from the outdoor unit to the
indoor unit.

If you are skilled or know somebody that is with electrical, turn the power back on to the outdoor unit take a non conductive object and
push the contactor in, the unit may start. If it doesnt start,check the
breaker for the ac unit to make sure it is not tripped.

If the breaker is not tripped and the condensor fan comes on and the
compressor does not come on and the breaker does not trip, then it
is very possible that you will need a new capacitor and while you are
at it put in a hard start kit.

This unit according to you, still should have 2 years left on the compressor warranty.

If You snoop around the unit it could bit You with voltage ...BE CAREFULL!

My heil heat pump has been tripping circuit breakers. It might run 8 hours to two days before it trips. I replaced the breaker. They put a hard start on the compressor. Now they say the next step is the...


Have you noticed what the outdoor temperature is when this unit is tripping the breaker? Does it seem to be at a higher outdoor temperature or at all outdoor temperatures day and night?
Did they check the run capacitor to see if it's good and the proper microfarads?
Did they check to see if the breaker trips when it's starting up or after it has been running awhile.
If it's tripping on start up then it's possible the next step is the compressor replacement.
If it's tripping after running awhile then it could be dirty indoor coil or filters,blower not running at full speed,low voltage, loose wire connection, points burnt on contactor and even a weak run capacitor.

Accidental short/spark - what part did i ruin?


YOU HAVE TOUCHED A HIGH VOLTAGE WIRE TO GROUND AS I READ YOR STATMENT. THAT WILL CAUSE A HIGH VOLTAGE BREAKER IN YOUR DISCONNECT OR MAIN PANEL TO TRIP. YOU CAN FIND CONTACTOR IN OUTDOOR AC MASH IT IN WITH AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER AND SEE IF COMPRESSOR COMES ON . IF NOT YOU HAVE NO HIGH VOLTAGE TO UNIT FIND AND RESET BREAKER. or YOU CAN GO TO MAIN PANEL AND ALL DISCONNECTS AND CHECK FOR A TRIPPED BREAKER. REMEMBER MOST BREAKERS TRIP TO HALF POSITION, BUT CUTLER HAMMERS TRIP TO OFF POSITION. THE THERMOMSTAT CONTROLLED SWITCH IS CONTROLLED BY LOW VOLTAGE THAT TELLS IT WHAT TO DO, BUT THE WORKING POWER IS USUALLY HIGH VOLTAGE IF ANYTHING HUMS ETC YOU HAVE LOW CONTROIL VOLTAGE BUT IF CONTROLS CLOSE AND NOTHING HAPPENS YOU HAVE LOST A LEG OF POWER OR BOTH LEGS. LOCATE TEST AND RESET ALL SOURCES OF POWER ( HIGH VOLTAGE)

Ruud heat pump outside unit trips circuit breaker


Check your wiring between the contactor and compressor for a short to ground, or check the compressor windings for short to ground.
With the Tstat off, the contactor should be open so the only way for the compressor to be trying to do anything is if the 110 volts from the unbroken side are traveling through the compressor to ground. Since 110v is not enough to run it, the overload is kicking it out, cooling off, and repeating the cycle. When you kick on the Tstat, the contactor is supplying voltage directly to ground without going through the resistence of the compressor windings and kicking the breaker.
Post back and let me know what you find.
