Circuit breaker tripping


Sounds like the electric motor in the fridge may have shorted out some of the windings which is causing it to draw more current. You should get one of those clamp on amp meters to see how much current it is drawing when it first kicks on.

AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker


What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

Runs constantly. Coils extremely hot. Breaker kicks out infusebox


It sounds as if the compressor is overheating causing a large current draw throwing your breaker. If the coils are durty on the back....clean them..also clean the coils under the frig by the fan motor.

Sub zero 700tc/fan runs but no compressor


A check of your breaker is in order. From your description the breaker could be week. If so the breaker my not cut off all the way and still allow enough power through to opperate the fan but not the added load of the compressor.

I have seen this a few times and it always confuses me too. Check the circuit by maybe moving the circuit on the breaker to a different one then retry it and see if the problem is gone. If it is then replace the breaker if not then its time to use a volt meter or call a repair person. And this is because there are a lot of what ifs that have to be covered to get to the root of the problem if this is not the trouble..

Please lket me know whow this works out. Rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Powered windows not working


It is not a fuse it is a circuit breaker, all data shows it as located near JB1 which is the Junction Box/Fuse Box located on the drivers side interior of the car. Left Kick Panel.
30AMP Circuit Breaker
There shows to be 2 breakers there, one for the seat belts and the other for PWR Windows, and Door Locks
