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.

Frigidaire GLRS264ZA refrigerator keeps blowing GFI circuit


The fan and defrost heater are run off the same relay on the board. When on defrost, the fan stops. when the fan starts, the defrost heater is switched off, Sounds like the neutral to the board may be shorting. If you have the ability, try powering the evaporator fan from the compressor relay, disconnecting from the board entirely. To see if this will work, just take a temporary wire to the fan when disconnected and see if it trips while running.

Gfi keeps tripping


do not use a GFI on a A/C unit, it will blow everytime. On start up of the unit the amps spike then quickly come down as long as the unit is clean and running right

My LG window ac continues to shut down after 20 or 25 minutes


The button on the plug is a GFI. Ground fault interuppter. Like on your hair dryer. When the unit is running, or has just tripped out, feel the plug and the well receptical. If either feel warm or hot, do not continue to run the A/c unit. Get an electrician to check for a faulty/ worn/improperly wired outlet. The units tripping out for a reason.

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.

GE XL44 Broiler/Self Clean Trips GFI


This should be a 220 volt appliance so I'm trying to figure how this was connected to a GFI. Does it have a second connection to power the controls?

Most GFI uints I have seen are not rated for large amounts of power consumption. I used to throw the one in my bathroom if I was running the electric heater and the wife fired up the hair dryer.

I'm wondering if this indeed does require the additional 110 connection then it sould be pulling heavy current from it to aid in the cleaning process. I've never seen a stove that needed the extra. My old electric range had only the 220 as well as my elders.

So if that is the case then you should not be running that through the GFI outlet because of the heavy drain will heat the breaker in the GFI and cause it to trip. Breakers actually work very similar to how the old fuses work. Heat causes the switch to throw. GFI units have a lower tolerance (designed to detect shorts quicker to save your life) and trip quicker than breakers do.
