Question about Haier Energy Star ESA3183 Air Conditioner
The heat pump in my air conditioning system trips the circuit breaker... what do I do?

I want to know the size of breaker to use.we are using a 30,30,30,30but it is kicking off.would a 40,40,40,40or higher be better if they sell them.

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.

The breaker for the air handler may be to small for the heat strip. Check to see the size of your heat strip (KW) and make sure that you have the right size breaker for the heat strip.

Most heat pumps have auxiliary heating elements that provide heat when the weather gets really cold because the heat pump's efficiency drops too low. These elements automatically turn on at a fairly low temperature: around 20 degree F. When they come on, they may be drawing too much power, which trips the circuit breakers. Just locate the circuit breaker that serves the heat pump and reset it.

the start capacitor is bad. Motors develop what is known as lock rotor amperage. requires alot of torque to turn the motor until it reaches iits rated or run load amperage. the motor is not able to overcome the lock rotor amps which is usually 5x the rated amperage and always more amps than the breaker. this is usually not a problem because the start capacitor helps overcome the LRA so quickly that it doesnt trip the breaker. If the capacitor is round and bad it will be bulged at the top, if it is oval shaped then the rupture disc on top will be blown letting all the dielectric fluid out which cools the capacitor
