You have a high voltage short to ground.Could be as simple as a burnt wire or as major as a compressor.

Snow Storm today knocked out main power to everyone in our area for a few hours. Ever since power was restored, our 200 AMP Main trips every 2.5 to 3 hours.


Could be major safety issue. They trip when too much amperage cause them to heat up and trip the bimetal. Get an electrician now, please.

Central air conditioner unit comprssor doesn't come on i suspect a lightening storm did something while we were away


check main power breaker, and reset breaker on unit, otherwise lightning storm would have nothing to do with units problem other then power surge, which would trip a breaker. Hope this helps, Thanks Mikemc1bean.jpeg

You may have had a surge during the storm. Check main control board in console for damage.

When turning on central air, our main electrical breaker is tripping. This is a brand new home barely over 1 year old. Should the AC have a warranty not covered by a builders contract??


Builders give a one year warranty but your air conditioner has five years on all parts. Anything outside the unit is not covered under the ac warranty. Breakers,stopped up drain and dirty coils.

Main breaker tripping


get acceess or rent an amp clamp meter with a "max hold" and clamp it on each line wire coming into the box (if you're not experienced in this hire an electrician being tht it can kill you if not done correctly and safely) when it blows check amps to each "leg" and see if it is over 200 amps. if it is under, the main breaker should be replaced . If it is over, clamp it on the "hot" side of each
circuit that you suspect may be pulling too much. If this all comes out ok, have the main service connections to the main breaker checked for being tight. This is a last resort, but I'
ve seen them heat up from being loose and then throw the main. The over all amps could be pulling too much, but it takes alot of things running at the same time to throw a 200 amp main.

Goodd luck!

Ben, you are on the right track. To upgrade the breaker, first look at the main house breaker panel and determine if allowing more current through main breaker will be taxing it too highly (will 20 more amps exceed my main breaker limit...what is the main breaker current trip at?) Then look at the wire size leading away from the 40 amp breaker to outside. If it is 6 gage copper or 4 gage copper-clad aluminum wire, you are ok to upgrade. Any smaller wire size could be unhealthy.
