Bryant condenser not running.


Check that there's power available (open or tripped breaker or disconnect). If there's power available, check for 24-28 volts feeding the contactor coil. The low refrigerant cut-out may have tripped the 24v (leak). The pressure cut-out may have tripped (dirty condenser coil, inoperable condenser fan motor). If there's 24 volts at the contactor coil, check the capacitor before ohming the motor. A defective run capacitor will shut the compressor down.

Whirlpool split ac tripping evry 5 min after compressor is on..i think prblm is in my stablizer.it cuts off supply to ac(output)o aftr some tym,its restartiing itsef again automatically as i called someone...


I have no idea what a stabilizer is, if the unit is plugged into it I would remove it, a voltage drop to the compressor would cause your problems. If its a surge protector (MOV) I still never see them on factory equipment.

Unit just stopped working. Power is being supplied to the unit.


There can be a trip switch or timer that has cut off, remove power and power after an hour. If the AC does not power on then start from the power cord to the panel, if there is control panel the power to the unit could have failed and so the functions are dead . Also check the main relay to the compressor.

Bissell lift off bagless tripped breaker. Cut


if it overheated, there is a automatic switch in or near the motor that resets automatically...if its cooled and wont start back up??? Then check that your outlet has power to it. if not, reset trhe house breaker and if it does, start hitting garage sales for 5 dollar vacuums....

Unit Does Not Power ON


Is there a breaker built into the plug that came on the unit?? Also you might consider that in the process of urning it on and off you might of had a small surge that fried the little electronic board in the controls. I would first see if it tripped the breaker on the cord and then the breaker in the house.

My window unit fell out of the window and hung by the power cord that was still plugged into the wall. I was able to grab the cord and pull it back up. I reattached the power cord and now every time i turn...


Its most likely is not the switch. It is most likely the cord though. Due to the excess strain on the cord it has probably cut through the rubber coating on the wire and connected to the frame and grounded the hot lead. Fix the cord and you may have it handled.

York screw chiller R-22


hi! there;
there are several causes we can consider in tripping of unit on auxillary sensor.the sensor device was designed to cut off source at specific limit of time or load.the over load sensor device was equipted to the main source specially on cmpressor of chiller to protect of burning the motor.
common causes of tripping off unit
1.high current on supply source.you can check this on one common line of compressor.using clamp ammeter.what ever reading you got when unit is running,compare this on rated current on manuals if high ampere was registered.ther is an overload supply the over load sensor will activate and cut off your unit.
a. source of overload is due to obstruction on refrigeration system,filter dryer are clogged,excessi9ve oil on high side.
b. themostat not cycles on,due to poor condensing fan, dirty condenser fin tube,or condeser insufficient cooling effect.
c. bearing,lubrication are not maintained usually on compressor on open type unit,

2. electrical wire and electronic control board short circuited.
a.sometime relay malfunction on cantactor w/c the supply souce intermittent either on one line supplying compressor,the compressor will suffer,it will just hum and trip off,

b.busted capacitor will trip off your unit,due to in the absence of starting motor.
this are common ways unit trip off, so regards and have a nice day,and one thing more don't forget to rate me, thank's

Electric immersion heater keeps cutting out


Sounds to me like you have a bad thermostat. You should be able to give a model number to any local plumbing supply place and get one for replacement. make sure power is of the unit before replaceing.

Air conditioner breaker on plug keeps tripping


The instruction manual says:
If the safety device incorporated in the plug trips and cuts off the power supply, check that the power cable and plug are not damaged. If the power cable is undamaged, to restore operation press the RESET button.   To verify the correct operation of the plug, press the TEST button periodically and make sure the appliance disconnects.  If this is not the case, contact the service center. To restore operation, press the RESET button.

Someone should check the current draw by the appliance. Then compare it with the name plate to determine if the problem is with the appliance or external power supply.
