My air con blows a cir when plug in.


Could just be a bad breaker. I would imagine you speak of the breaker on the end of cord itself, not much info, but is possible. Other than that, always check the ground for proper connection. Could be a broken wire or wires touching somewhere on the inside throwing the breaker. I can only speculate with what info you've given.

Will run and heat with no problem but the breaker on the plug will trip after about 1 hour of use it get cold with no problem the plug does not get hot nor the breaker.


sounds like your breaker is weak or faulty. Breakers are pretty easy to change except if you don't like to work with electricity. If you do try to change the breaker yourself , turn the large main breaker off to the house so you won't be working with live electricity.

My wall air conditioner will run for about 10 minutes and then shut off and shut off electricity to everything on that circuit.


You may be over loading the circuit. Try only running the AC then see if it runns longer turn everything else off on the circuit. most window AC need a 20 amp breaker. If you have had it on the circuit for a long time without any problem you may have been at the limit of the breaker and it is going bad. If you are overloading the line one way to tell if the unit runs long enough 30 min or more the cord on the unit will get warm or the faceplate of the plug in will get warm also look at the cords end where it plugs into the outlet is it melted or blackened ect obviouse signs of overheating. I always recomend a dedicated line for AC. Hope this helps good luck and be careful with the electricity.

My unit was working fine until 3 days ago when the breaker tripped, I reset the breaker and worked fine for a day then tripped again when it tripped both the ac breaker andthe main in the trailer as well...


High amp draw can be caused by a few different things, so first check that incoming voltage to trailer is sufficient. (115 volts) Not unusual for some parks to install more hydro hook-ups on a feed line, and when all are up and running, your incoming voltage could be decreased. If your o.k. that way, then I'd start looking at the compressor circuit of your ac, in particular, the compressor start-up capacitor. The capacitor basically stores electricity and boosts it to higher voltage for compressor and fan start-ups to reduce current draw that will trip the breaker. Please have a knowledgeable electrician, or RV tech check this for you, as a capacitor can give a real good high voltage (possible fatal) shock, even when power is off to unit. I also suspect that the start relay has shorted (welded) itself due to high amp draw situation, and that is reason it comes on by itself.

Air cond & electrical outlet in 1999 sprinter by keystone 33 ft


One of your breakers in your main panel should be for either one of those. Simply test receptacle for power as you try flipping each breaker off and on, until you find the right one. Quite often a high amperage draw item like electric frying pan, or hotplate plugged into the one by the kitchen area is the culprit. If they smell, or appear burnt or scorched, they should be changed, as well as the entire circuit tested for proper size wiring, as well as rated receptacle to handle big power( amperage draw). Extension cords will also cause same problem. Make sure if you have to use an extension cord, that is a heavier gauge wire, approved for that use, and is as short as possible. I'm assuming your AC is plugged in to a receptacle, and not on roof?

Throwing breaker


Throwing the MAIN BREAKER should not happen. Calculate the distance to your main box. Tell me the wire gauge or breaker amperage. Whatever you do, do not get a larger breaker! If its a breaker on this unit Its probably doa with current leak possibly. DO NOT USE fire hazzard IF SHE TRIPS!!! let me know if its your main breaker inthe house. Hopefully you dont have crappy cloth wiring.

Roof Top A/C Throwing Main Breaker


do you have an amp meter. when the main is tripped what is running? maybe the main breaker is going bad. I dont think you are pulling more than 20 amps when everything is running. not unless the fan on the A/C shorts to ground when it gets hot????

let me know

Rv electrical question


By the main breaker in the camper, do you mean the main 24 or 12 volt breaker, or the incoming 120vac breaker? Is it tripping the breaker in the camper, or the house? If it is tripping the breaker inside, i would look for maybe water damage, rusty components, maybe have an electrician come look at it, not worth going out away from home, and that problem ruining your vacation! Does this unit have a generator set? Try disconnecting the generator too. Hope that helps!

Circuit breaker

Happy to assist,

HOW MANY BTU IS THE AIR CONDITIONER?
And is it 110 or 220 line!

If it is using 110 or 115 volts like normal house current and it throws circuit breakers in your electric box,then you need to run a dedicated line just for the Air Conditioner!
Usually this happens to 110 -115 volt air-conditioners that are more than 12,000 BTU and do not have a dedicated electric line in the wall only for the air conditioner!

New air conditioners have a circuit breaker built into the units plug!
And I have seen some that throw that breaker to off frequently even if it's only an electric surge! Which it should not do!
if its the case and it's new, take it back to the store and ask for a different model, size, or brand!
Fedders had an 18,000 BTU/ 110-115 volt unit that did this with every single unit last year! I stopped selling that unit only!!
