The breaker is underrated the power that it takes to start the compressor is really big but only for a few seconds. That is called the inrush and the breaker should be rated for HVAC wich allows for this.

WHEN TO USE A KICKSTART CAPAITOR


Be sure the breaker is the right size for your unit. An under sized breaker will trip at the start. A bad compressor usually wont try to start.

Quiet master SL36L30A-C outer fan broke loose and then unit triped a braker. With new blade should unit be ok


Not sure of the damage that the spinning blade did, but the breaker did its job. I would ohm it out for shorts before powering it on though. How long was it tipped over. was it righted immediately. This is very important, because you don't want liquid refrigerant in your compressor, or it's done when started. If you didn't right it immediately, then use a hair dryer or heat gun to boil off any liquid refrigerant that may have entered the compressor before you power it back on.

Hi, i have a craftsman 5 hs compressor and it just started tripping breaker every time i turn switch on. it tries to run several seconds at partial power before actually triping breaker. i have checked...


if the compressor turns over freely then you have a motor fault its likley to be a short in the windings causing it to loos power and therefore pull more amps this in turn pops your brakers as it is a 5hp 110 volt motor will pull nearly 45 amps witch if nearly half the power that my house runs on (but at 230 volts i have twice the pushing power)

If your dishwasher is on a wall switch, someone may have shut it off, Your dishwasher could be pluged into a Daisy chaned GFI, check all your GFI in the kitchen and make sure none are triped. The home Fuse Box, make sure the braker is not triped.

After all that has passed, there is a power conection box under the machine. Make sure the power is off from the breaker box or the machine is unpluged before inspecting under the machine or trying to repair this machine.

Keeps on triping braker


Unit should be tested, You have a "ground fault" condition.

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

My ULine icemaker just started triping the GFCI plug.


Ground fault should not be used when you have a compressor plugged to it. The start amps can trip a ground fault. You can try to plug the unit on a regular outlet and if it doesnt trip the breaker then unit should be good. You can try to replace the ground fault if you need it (but make sure you have a higher amperage on the new one.)
