Will this 3 Amp Circuit Breaker 250vac/50vdc work on a heat pump control wiring ?

The dc rating of switch or relay contacts is always lower than ac due to dc current, especially with an inductive load, arcing more and longer when the circuit breaks.

On some circuits a reverse diode can be fitted across the contacts to reduce arcing and on ac a small value capacitor can have a similar effect.

Most switches and breakers have ratings for ac and dc and are suitable within those ratings. Switches that are primarily designed for dc inductive loads generally have a rapid spring assisted make and break.

I think the answer to your question is yes.

Tripping circuit breaker

Hi Kathy
Sometimes when a breaker keeps tripping, it will wear and will be in need of replacement...try replacing the breaker and see if that solves your problem.
If not then check the amps on the pump and make sure the breaker is able to hand the amperage the pump is requiring.

My spa depot hot tub keeps popping the breaker

What type breaker?
GFCI or ordinary heat-rated breaker?

Do NOT use two GFCIs on same circuit.
Spa needs GFCI to protect people while immersed in water.

You might have dangerous short, or leaking element, bad switch, bad wiring, bad electrical connection, or undersized wire and breaker.
If breaker is undersized for load, it can get loose on the busbar and then start arcing, and then tripping. Use nose to smell for burning. Feel breakers to see if they are warm. Move wire to different same-size breaker.

Circuit braker keep popping

Sounds like the heating element has gone out again. Once you reset the circuit breaker and the tub turns on it will start to circulate the water. This usually runs like this for about 2 mins and then the tub will recognize it is cold and send power to the heater. If the element is back at that point it will blow the circuit breaker.
If this circuit breaker pops as soon as you turn it on then you most likely have a bad circuit board.

Hello, my heat pump is a 4 ton unit, it heats ok but it keeps tripping one of the breakers, the 40 amp cooling breaker. I have put a new thermostate, it keeps running after the breaker is tripped and the...

Hello Jack,

Let me see if I have this right. Your heat pump keeps triping the breaker that is going to your airhandler. The Heatpump is on its on breaker and can not trip the breaker on your air-handler. However, the 40 amp breaker is to you heat pump its self (the outside unit). The thermstat is not the porblem as all it does is call for heat or cool. The problem can be one or a cobination of three things the contactor, the run capcitor or the breaker is weak.

The first thing I would do is replace the breaker as if it has tripped more than twice it needs to be replaced. Then I would look at the contactor, it is located underneath the service panel it will have some low voltage wires on the sides and a black and white wire running to it from the disconect box. If you notice the contacts are chared (little copper points in the middle of the contactor) I would replace it. If the contactor looks good I would remove the capcitor (carefully not to touch to contacts at once as they hold a charge) and take if to the local parts house and have it tested.

I hope that I have asnwered you question and you are able to take care of the problem. Thank you for using FIxya and do not hesitate to ask more questions.

My well keeps breaking the circuit breaker, I have had three pressure switchs put in they last for a few weeks and then they start tripping. Last time if I moved the wires at the pressure switch the pump...

The motor for your well pump is going bad and it is pulling too much current on the start up ...this is burning up the pressure switches and is tripping your breaker..
It may be cheaper to replace the whole pump then to just replace the motor...

My Amana heat pump model PHD60C02F1 Keeps tripping the circuit breaker

Is this kicking the ground fault on the cord or the breaker. If it trips breaker could be bad breaker. If it trips quickly it is a short in the unit. Russ

Heat pump trips circuit breaker

I seem to have the same problem. But when I reset the breakers, they won't stay in the on position. They go back to the off position. What gives? It is 95F inside the house.
