Question about Hampton Bay HBLG5004 Air Conditioner
My unit is approx. 7 years old and I have never had any problems with it until now. When I turn on the air conditioner, it will run fine for only approx. 5 minutes and then it blows a fuse. I have switched where I plug it in to so that other things on the same circuit are less. The problem still exists. I can run just the fan fine 24 hours a day without a problem but, as soon as I change it from fan to air conditioner, same problem - it blows the fuse. I am wondering if there is an internal fuse or switch or ? that needs replacing or if it is something completely different. Any suggestions? Thanks
The fan alone on an A/C unit draws alot less amps than a fan and compressor. I would guess that your fan and compressor draw around 15 amps when bnoth are on. The unit should be on its own breaker or fuse (whichever you have. As things get old, like fans and compressors, they wear out and will draw more amps.
I see you have 2 choices,:
1) place the A/C on its own circuit with nothing else on it. This may buy you some time until you can replace the unit.
2) Buy a new A/C as the newer units are more energy efficient, and last longer.
