The cord for my Danby window unit has a current leakage detection device and trips immediately when I plug it in. If it is plugged in the device will not reset ie: the test fails. This is a new A/C unit....

Hi There,

If the unit is plugged into the proper rated receptacle and it popsthe reset in the plug without anything being turned on, it could be a faultycord.

I would first recommend that you check to be sure that the outlet is working properly by plugging something else in.
If the outlet is in fact working correctly, please contact our service department for assistance 1-800-26-DANBY
Thank you!

Arc fault circuit breaker will not reset


I'm an electrician and can help you out with this problem. A tripping arc fault breaker is an indication of a problem with the circuit that will need to be corrected before it can be reset.

The first thing to do is remove all the cord-connected devices from the outlets. This will help in a couple of ways - the first will is that the load on the circuit will be reduced if the tripping is the result of an over-current condition; and will also remove any device that is mimicking the type of arcing trouble the circuit breaker is designed to detect. After all the devices have been removed, reset & turn on the circuit breaker. This means the handle must be pushed to the OFF position fully, and then pressed in the opposite direction to the ON position. If the breaker stays on, begin plugging the cord-connected devices back into the outlets. If the breaker trips, disconnect the last device plugged in, and turn the breaker back on as described above.

You should have the device that caused the trip thoroughly checked before connecting to your home's wiring.

If the breaker tripped before plugging in the cord-connected devices, check fixtures - fluorescent in particular. Older arc fault breakers often confused fluorescent fixtures as dangerous arcs problems. You should disconnect them / remove lamps and try again.

If still unable to get the breaker to stay on, there may be a problem with the breaker or the wiring. You can check the breaker after first removing the load wire from the breaker terminal - but I caution against doing this if you are not completely familiar with working with breakers and live voltages found in an electrical panel.

A qualified electrician should be called to solve the problem for you if you have followed the steps above without any luck.

I hope this helps!

The reset button is part of the cord. The cord has built in arc detection. This is a complex circuit that monitors the unit and senses potentially dangerous sparks or arcing inside the internal components of the A/C (motors, switches, etc.) It sounds like the problem is getting worse - as they usually do. Sparking and arcing happen when dirt, corrosion, etc. accumulates and can result in pitted contacts. All of these conditions only make the sparks and arcs worse. Page 1 of the manual (left column) says this:

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the
reset button will pop up.

Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection

1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Check to see if power has returned to the unit


You should test the Arc Detection Device
equipped power cord monthly, after every major
electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air
Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection

1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Press test button. Unit should trip and reset
button will pop up.
5. Press reset button again for use
If above test fails, stop using the air
conditioner and contact customer service by
calling the following toll-free number:
1-800-332-6658 or email:

I hope this helps & good luck!

Pump plugged in to grounded receptacle trips the

If by "trips the breaker" you mean the GFI then you are leaking current to ground, GFI's trip when there is an imbalance between the current going to the motor on the HOT side and returning from the motor on the NEUTRAL side, if it is tripping the GFI it is likely the sign of a failing motor.

How to reset Cutler Hammer 1 pole 15 Amp

Turn handle to off position and then back on. Same as any other breaker. The red test button can be pressed which will trip breaker. If it trips immediately,unplug all devices on circuit and try to reset. Reconnect each device and see which trips breaker. If this goes to outdoor receptacle, check behind cover for moisture.

sounds like a direct short. Changing the plug and circuit protection may not eliminate the problem, but it would let you know for sure. I would not change that plug without ground fault interruption.
