There could be a number of reasons this is happening. The unit could be on the same circuit with something else overloading the circuit. There could be a problem with the compressor that is overloading the circuit when the compressor licks on.

Heat strip keeps tripping breaker after running for a few minutes


Breaker must be 2 to 3 times of running amps of a/c or heater whichever is higher. If breaker fixed minimum3 years back, better to replace. In heater, clean heater strips by a blower and also check for loose contacts. Sometimes weak strip element, it may happens. Replace heater element. Thanks.

Heater shut down sometime in the middle of the night and now it will not turn on. I checked the breaker box and when I flipped the master switch, it came on for about a minute or two but was blowing cold...


Hi what has happened is, this is a heat pump. The main breaker keeps tripping because the compressor is shorted. I hate to give you this news, but anytime a unit keeps tripping the main breaker on a heat pump, the compressor is either locked up and drawing enough amps to trip the breaker, or it is shorted internally. This is something that you will have to call a tech out on. I am sorry to give you this news, but this is all it could be. If it came on for a minute blowing cold air, the compressor wasn't running due to it being shorted out. This is your only choice is to call someone out to check it. If this is a older unit, you may be better off replacing the outdoor unit. If not, get an estimate on a compressor change out. I wish you all the best on this, and I know this is bad news, but these things always happen at the wrong time of year. Please keep me posted.

Breakers are thrown by the build up of heat. And over time breakers do get weak try changing your breaker. Use the same size its plenty big. be careful and dont get bit by the electricity.

the cutting in and out is indicating that it has reached its internal thermal limits .. its too hot inside .. that trips a thermal breaker .. the breaker resets when the unit cools ... the problem is almost always caused by not enough air flow ... the intake is blocked or dust has accumulated preventing proper air flow ... or the fan could be not running or running too slow .. make sure it turns freely ... clean out any dust and filters if any ... make sure air intake and exhaust are not blocked ...

Air conditioner runs for several minutes then


Take it back to the dealer and have them fix it, could be a compressor froze up or a fan froze up. If you disconnect the compressor and turn it on and it trips the breaker the fan is probably
bad. If you disconnect the Fan and turn it on and it trips the breaker
it is you compressor.

Breaker trips on condenser unit on heat pump after several hours of operation


Hi, check amps on unit, and make sure breaker matches, check unit voltage tag, it will tell you what size breaker you need, or may be breaker is loosing resistance, replace breaker, if problem continues, a/c maybe over working because of high temp, temp. affect amperages, and that would be normal, if it trips after few hrs. also check a/c for lack of freon, sometimes, they need a tap up of refrigerant, not enough freon and they would run longer, get hotter and eventual trips. breaker doing his job. good luck

A/c is drawing 20 amps and keeps tripping breaker after running


If the fan is running and the compressor is getting hot and tripping off you may have a failed capacitor.

RV ROOF TOP AIR CONDITIONER TRIPS BREAKER


Possible low voltage condition would cause that kind of a problem. To small a cord without the ability to carry and maintain the voltage would cause a voltage drop. I would test the voltage supply and make sure it is within 10% of that required for your A/C to operate properly.
