Hi,
There is a short in the unit...
If it is kicking the breaker as soon as you plug it in then there is a good chance that the problem is in the cord...
Anyway the best way to find the problem will be to use an OHM meter and trace down the source of the short...

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

Reset button ac unit


Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

My refrigator/freezer is kicking off the circuit breaker each time I plug it in


Two obvious possibilites. One, it may not be the only unit on that circuit. If you have a 15 or 20 amp breaker, and have more than one unit like this, you are pulling too many amps for the breaker.That happens frequently. The other possibility is a dead short somewhere in the unit. Try plugging it in to a different outlet that you know has nothing else on that circuit. If it comes on and runs, You need to run a didicated circuit for this freezer only. A dead short in the machine will kick any outlet that it is plugged into. You will have to isolate each circuit in the freezer to find which one is grounded out.

We have arc fault breakers on our house built in 2002. in trying to plug in our 40'' lcd tv the breaker kicks out as soon as the plug touches the outlet. We've even tried brand new high end TrippLite surge...


Well, considering all TV's these days have what is called a SMPS which means Switch Mode Power Supply. As soon as your plug enters the outlet it will ark, because the power supply starts up immediately, so my suggestion would be is to kill the breaker to that room then plug the set in and then reset the breaker. Let me know how it turns out.
