SOURCE: Hotpoint CTD00 trips the power
This happened to me.
Your condenser unit on the front bottom left corner may be clogged up and causing water to back up around the fan and heating element behind the rear panel.
Take condenser unit out and give it a good clean removing as much fluff as possible.
If the heating element senses damp on it, then it will trip the electric.
The back panel which is at 45 degree angle on back. I took this off and sure enough there was water in there.
Wipe away all water and use an ever so slightly damp cloth to remove as much dust stuck to the metal as possible.
I used a hair dryer for about ten minutes fanning over the heating element and circular fan. Don't rush this. Take your time to make sure all signs of damp have been removed from heating element before putting the back panel back on.
After carrying out the above my machine worked fine and no longered trip electric.
It is a pain, but to prevent this problem happening I suggest cleaning condenser unit about once a week if you have alot of washing. Empty water panel after every two loads, maximum.

SOURCE: Stopped working
I had a similar problem with a jvc 8040. when I replaced the fuse it became very obvious that the b1560 output on the center channel was blown (smoke and sparks, always a dead giveaway). I haven't fixed the center channel yet but simply unplugged the center channel board and removed it from the unit. Now everything works fine except of course the center channel. Pre outs still operate just fine so a slave amp could be used for center channel power, or you could just go and buy a marantz amp; I did and then I realized that I was lucky that the old jvc quit.

what I have always been told is if your 24 volt side burns out check the high volt side if the hi volt side burns out check the low volt side.
A quick way if the primary side is burningout due to a problem with the low volt side:
1 MArk all the thermostat wires at the indoor unit
2 Disconnect them at the indoor unit.
3 Check main line voltage before proceeding (A 208 volt is not considered 220V and 240v Is not considered 208V> In these circumstances the voltage may have changed with the power company replacing a transformer and now you need to change the main power input lines at your control transformer for the correct operating voltage). If okj then proceed:
4 If you have an amp meter attach it to one of the lines going to the transformer.
5 Apply main power and listen for hum, note if smell starts again and if so problem has to be in board or main incoming voltage too high or too low. Amp draw should be less than 3 amps.
6 If your to this point and still havent found any trouble in the above as of yet, Connect the wire marked "C" together. Then just touch the thermostat wires one at a time to the places where they go on the indoor unit and watch the amp meter. If you donmt see the meter jump the circut is probably ok but leave them disconnected until you touch all of them to the correct place or wire. Here is a possible problem I ahve seen a thermostat wireing problem if the wires are stripped too far and a "whisker" of the wire sticks out and allowes one of the other wires to cross short out. In this case just cut off the excess wire or bend it over out of the way asnd continue with the test. You can always cut it off later after the tests. If you see the meter jump up and stay up and /or blowes the fuse the wire that you used and it blew is where to consentrate.
7 No wiring problem found means that you could have a relay or contactor not pulling in properly.
and this will cause the amp draw to go way over the transformers power out put or VA rating.
8 Inspect the thermostat wiring for the "whisker" I mentioned above.
9 If you have done this to the end of the thermostat wires and your main incomming voltage is correctly wired in on the transformer andf your relays and contactors are pulling in evenly and not delaying excessively your problem should be fixed.
If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

SOURCE: Blown Transformer heat pump
blown transformers are usually from a low voltage short the first thing i would do is wire a automotive or resetable 3amp fuse in line with the transformer so you dont blow transformer after transformer the wire coming off the transformer that say 24v take that wire a couple of inches down and cut it and install the fuse in series there
now you can go through your low voltage wires one by one and test them unhook all the wires to your outdoor condenser at your indoor unit(furnace or airhandler) and try turning it to cool now if you blow the fuse the short is between the tstat and the indoor unit if the fuse is still good leave it on cool and hook up one wire at a time to your outdoor unit starting with R a lot of times your contactor or your defrost board will short out on you also look for pinches in wires wires with cracks in the insulation and wires touching metal this situation can be a real pain sometimes i would recommend calling a hvac company if you start to get stumped
hope this will help you
