Circut Breaker trips

Hi,
My Dometic RV unit keeps tripping the circuit breaker during operation. It works fine for a few days after I start a trip then will only work on gas. I have unplugged the ice maker but it makes no difference. A local "authorized" repair dealer checked and told me that the unit was drawing the correct amount of power. They could not observe the malfunction but it still blows in the field. Any way you can point me?

  • i have no experience with RV units but if it were in a house i would suspect a bad breaker or a problem with the outlet itself. breakers  only trip when the wiring is gets hot.
  • unless it is a ground fault breaker (usually on the outlet) then this would trip if the flow of electricity is grounded. ground fault breakers do go bad often.
  • i think if the refrigerator itself had a problem then it would be consistent (as far as it is pulling amps anyway). not work fine sometimes and not others.

I have 2 15000 BTU A/C units run to a double pole 20 amp each breaker. The breaker keeps over heating and one side will trip. Should i separate the units on their own breaker? The units cool and run fine...


That would work, if for no other reason, to isolate which one may be drawing too much/more amperage. Keep in mind as well, after a breaker trips too many times, it usually will get weak and trip at lower amperage. If all is same, ( wiring from AC units) and units are cleaned regularily and no other internal problems such as weak, bad, capacitors etc, they should both draw same or close to same. If possible that someone has a multimeter with amp draw clamp, that would confirm where trouble is.

I have a Quick Cool (59516.501) which just started tripping the 20 A circuit breaker. I replaced the circuit breaker. Unit still trips the circuit breaker.


you will need to access the unit and look for burnt/shorted wires on/at compressor. if not then the compressor is locked down/shorted and will need replaced Tim

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.

Unit shuts off on hot days


It may be low on refrigerant. On hotter days, the compressor has to run longer to reach the temperature you have on your thermostat. Have it checked for the proper refrigerant charge and have them test how many amps that the compressor is pulluig as well. With the proper breaker installed, the unit should not be tripping out. Make sure that the breaker that is in there now is actually the proper one for your unit.

Circuit breaker overheating on rooftop ac after


Possible overcharge or bad breaker. You need to check the amp draw for the unit. If you draw under full load amps and trips breaker breaker is bad.Rus

A/c tripping breaker during peak heat of day ,coils clean,filter clean,pulling about 16 amps while running 15000 btu straight cool


Chances are you have a bad breaker or loose wires on the breaker. What size breaker do you have on unit. Heat of the day plus full load on the unit could cause it to trip. Rus

Ac Problems


You must have too many things running on that circuit. Check your connection to the power box.Loose connection on the receptacle can cause the breaker to trip or too many things running on the same circuit. If the breaker is old it might need to be replaced.

Circuit breaker trips when turning unit on. only unit on circuit has triped on several circuits can find no shorts on wiring.


DOES IT BLOW THE BRAKER AS SOON AS IT TURNS ON OR DOES IT TAKE A FEW SECONDS. INSTANTLY WOULD MORE LIKELY BE A SHORT IF FEW SECONDS THE COMPRESSOR IS PROBABLY DRAWING MORE AMPS THAN THE BREAKER CAN HANDLE SO IT BLOWS. TRY TAPPING THE COMPRESSOR NEXT TIME YOU ATTEMPT A HOUSE CURRENT START UP. i HAVE A WINDOW AIR CONDITIONER THAT NEEDS TAPPED FOR STARTUP FOR THE SUMMER SEASON. GOOD LUCK

Tripping circuit breaker


You probably have a dirty condenser coil or the con den ser fan motor is bad or the blades are jam that's why it overheat and shut off by overload.
