Are you hooking within 5ft of the outlet? If you are running a cord, then the cord can't keep the amp rating needed to run the compressor. I have one that does the exact thing. Try plugging it in close.

Raven 4000 generator won't start. It has new gas, oil that came with it... It isn't sparking. Hurricane coming, please help!


Your dip stick should have level marks to tell you when its up to where it is suppose to be and when it is low. if you over fill it won't start . Did you check the level before you added any oil. some times they put oil in at the factory as well as give you an extra can of oil. Pull your spark plug out and see if its oily or if it has gasoline on it. If its oily you may have to take some oil out. If the plug is dry then maybe you have to choke it more if you have a primer bulb then you can try pushing it more. Some engines say to push bulb only three times but quite often takes more.

Holmes hch6150 will not produce heat


Without having the heater to tear apart to see what is not working, you may try the following. Your heater is a 1500 watt heater and pulls about 13 amps of current. If you plug it into a recepticle that is already have load turned on, most recepticle circuits are rated for 15 amps and you have probably tripped the breaker for this circuit. Check your breaker panel to see if a breaker is tripped. If it has tripped, this will tell you your pulling to much current. Try another circuit that allows the heater to operate or find the other load on the circuit that is causing the breaker to trip. By the way to reset the breaker take the breaker to full off, this resets the trip, and then turn it back to on.
Hope this helps

Duo therm mod. 57915 air conditioner seems to work good , runs for 4-5 minutes then kicks breaker , was kicking 30 amp breaker at camp ground , i've been working on connections to make sure its...


Unit may pull as much as 17-18amps when compressor starts up, but level out to 12-15 amps when up and running. Keeping in mind that is all relative to proper 120v incoming voltage, heavy enough wire to run the application etc. If your AC unit needs cleaning , it may draw an extra amp or 2 . With that said, when your at the park, first thing I'd question is their incoming voltage to RV, and try running fridge etc and anything else on propane if possible. The AC alone should not cause 30amp at source breaker to trip, before 15 0r 20 amp breaker in RV that is connected to AC trips. If it doesn't trip your breaker at home, and all is connected same at park, then I certainly would suspect bad breaker or voltage/wiring at park is the cause. P.S. I noticed you said you have 12 gauge wire (rated at 20 amps) connected to a 20amp breaker at panel, but RV is plugged in to a 15amp receptacle, I will assume with a 15 amp adapter from 30 amp plug. Do you see any hazard regarding 15 amp rating on receptacle? ( just a little advice.)

My dryer runs and drys but after a little while it will trip the breaker in the electrical panel. Anyone have a clue? It's a GE mod.# DLLLR23EG1WW. Thanks in advance for any help. Tom


Hello, W/D here.
When a machine is operating properly, but then trips the breaker, the breaker itself seems to be suspect. Breakers wear over time, and can become "weak". Also, amps on a breaker are time weighted. The more amps that you pull, the less time it takes for the breaker to trip. This is also true with a weak breaker. Check the amps that you should pull with your dryer, and check the breaker. If the breaker is the correct size, try replacing it. You should be on a 30 amp breaker/circuit.
Here are some useful links for your dryer:

All the oil gone after a 20 mile round trip - has it burnt off or did it leak - that's the question - it's a 1.4 y reg golf - petrol...


I can't imagine that your car is "burning" all that oil in 20 miles. To be sure, remove the spark plugs and look for a lot of ash or really black/oily plugs. I would say more than likely you have an oil leak. Check under your car for a lot of oil streaking. At that rate it should be everywhere underneath.

2006 Chrysler T&C transmission leak


a bolt most likely vibrated loose and is letting transmission fluid leak out. try finding it and tighten it back up. or your dipstick housing is loose and the pressure is allowing fluid to leak out.

Breaker tripping


Make sure it is plugged into a 20 amp circuit. If it is in a kitchen it should be a 20amp breaker if it trips a 20 amp breaker it needs to be replaced. If it is a new house and you plug it in in the kitchen and it trips a 15 amp breaker then the house does not meet code. ref Article 210.52(B)(1) NEC
