On my GE mechanical timer 15306, The breaker keeps popping every night for about 2 weeks now


Dear J,
Whenever I get a request like yours, I am happy, because I may bless you by preventing your house or apartment having a fire.
Breakers are designed specifically to prevent fires, and if yours is popping, you have a short circuit somewhere, and if you keep turning it back on, one day the short will start an electrical fire. (I am a retired fire chief.)
Have an electrician test your timer for the problem.
God bless your efforts.

I just wired my hot tub into my new house. And GFCI keeps tripping?


Still would go with Miswired.
if this is an auxiliary GFCI Spa Disconnect,
240 VAC, 50 Amp, then...
All of the following needs to be this way:
  • 4 wires from MAIN Circuit panel, into GFCI disconnect box, 2 hots, 1 Neutral, 1 ground
    • 2 hots go onto the disconnects Power Bus Bar for breaker
    • 1 white Nuetral goes to Isolated nuetral bus bar
    • 1 green Ground goes to ground lug directly on the box
  • 1 GFCI in the auxiliary disconnect box
    • The White Pigtail of the GFCI Breaker goes onto the Isolated Nuetral bus bar. There are now two wires there.
  • 4 wires come into box from Spa. (Unless the spa is Specifically a 3 Wire Connection Spa!)
    • 2 Hot/Line wires will go into the L1 & L2 lugs of the breaker respectively.
    • 1 White Nuetral Wire will go into breaker as well at the "Load Nuetral lug, usually marked as 'LN'.
      • It will NOT go on the Isolated Nuetral bus bar.
    • Green Ground wire will be connected to ground lug, 2 wires are now connected there.
  • Connections at spa will be respectively connected: the 2 hots on line 1 and line 2. White wire goes to Nuetralnd green ground will go to a Ground Lug, most likely to metal control box.
If it's not wired in this manner, it is wired WRONG.

Cuisinart juice sqeezer throws circuit breaker


Is this a new juicer, have you used this before without the circuit failure?
Most circuits in the house will be are 15 amp breakers. If the appliance has a high amp load then this can cause it to switch the breaker turning on or off.(due to to voltage spikes) I have a waffle iron that does the same thing if my refrigerator cycles while the iron is on.
There are a few things that could cause this. But before anything else I would try the juicer in a different plug that is on a different circuit, like the living room for example. If that works well then I would start looking at you may need to replace the circuit breaker, they do go bad.

My compressor threw the house circuit breaker out. When i now try to start it up it just hums loudly and throws the breaker each time. Can you tell me the problem


The ONLY reason that a Breaker "Blows" is due to a severe overload, or short circuit or short between Phase & Earth. Or a Contactor failure. Usually this fault is caused by a faulty Motor Winding. Also Check the STAR/RUN Capacitor. Or the Contactor. Also a mechanical problem may "Jam" up the "Drive-train" and cause the Motor to , Stall, & in turn draw huge amounts of Current trying to keep on going. Use a meter on OHMS and work through checking continuity, up to the Motor, and between the Motor and Neutral. You should "See" the resistance of the Motor, ONLY when the switch is ON. from the Plug end. BE CAREFUL.

Clothes Dryer tripping house circuit breaker


If it is breaking the main circuit of the house there is something wrong. It should throw the breaker to the dryer only. It sounds like you are having a problem with a short between the main breaker and sub panel in the house. Is there any way you can move the breaker in the panel to a different place on the same panel to see if it is that circuit only. If not check the outlet and the plug on the dryer and make sure the wiring is connected correctly.

Whirlpool model acq158xso shuts off circuit breaker


It sounds as though the unit is dirty and during high loads, it is haveing trouble keeping up. Pull the unit from it's housing and wash it real good with a hose and sprayer. Its better to pull the unit because you can get to the coiling easier and clean it the way it needs to be clean. I bet this will solve your problem, if not then it may be low on refrigerant and the compressor is locking out and this can sometimes trip a weak breaker.

Blown breaker


It sound like all of those go through your bathroom GFCI. I would recommend moving your outdoor circuit breaker indoors if possible or enclosing it to make it water-proof. You may also do some rewiring from your main breaker box ( if you are handy) to eliminate the outdoor box completely considering you have 100 amp / 200 amp breaker box inside your house. If you still have an old FUSE BOX with 60 amp service, I would recommend replacing it with a 100 amp or 200 amp breaker box depending on the size of your house. I would separate the laundry room by itself with 12/2 gauge wire with ground on a 20 amp breaker. You can then take your bathroom (using 12/2 gauge wire with ground keeping your gfci ) and run it to another breaker in the house with a 20 amp breaker or add a new one if there is room in your main box. Now all you have left is the porch light. You can run that separate from everything to your main breaker box using 14/2 gauge with ground to a breaker in your main box by adding a new 15 amp breaker or adding it to another 15 amp breaker that does not have a very high load such as a bedroom. In general Kitchens, Bathrooms, Laundry rooms should be on there own separate 20 amp breakers. Most every other room can be 14/2 with ground on a 15 amp breaker... hope this helps....Joe
