First, get your money back or get a replacement for no charge. now, when you reset it, are you resetting the circuit breaker? if so, then first try another appliance that will demand near the same current as yours (~7-8 amps). if breaker does trip, check your house wiring. if not, then your unit's compressor motor is demanding too much current (assuming you have a 15A or 20A breaker)-not a pretty fix here. look for another unit

    not pretty is costly-mostly labor to change the compressor and refill freon

Brand new out the box dw716 dewalt compound dual bevel miter saw cut one board & quit. Left it alone for about 10 minutes & it worked when we came back. Made about 10 more cuts & it stopped again. We are...


I would return it to the store, or have it fixed under warranty. You obviously have a defective saw. Dewalt is a reputable company, and they make high quality tools, but defects do op up once in a while from all manufacturers.
It sounds like your saw has a defective heat sensor, and it is sensing the temperature incorrectly and shutting the saw off to protect it.

Oscillating drum sander runs a few minutes and stops


This usually occurs if the motor is overheating and the internal circuit breaker is tripping. After it cools down, it self resets. This can be caused by bad bearings or parts dragging the motor down, making it work hard enough to over heat and trip the breaker. If you are running it on an extension cord or circuit that isn't able to provide it with the amps it needs the motor will overheat and trip the breaker also.

My Panasonic NN-GD560M microwave when switched on cause the fuse at the circuit box to trip. It will reset and appear to be OK but as soon as I attempt to use the microwave it trips again


The rest in the fuse panel can wear out especially if its been kicked off several times or is quite old so I'd suggest checking it and maybe it's on a line with too many things attached to the circuit causing too much amp draw when microwave is being used.If you know the house amp input to the fuse box and add up the fuses or reset amperage you maybe able to up the amperage by 5amp tops but try a brand new same amperage reset first off.

Circuit breaker trips after 10 minutes


could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw

Optio E10 Keeps running thru batteries, I bought a new 8 pk for a field trip with my sons school, I took 5 pictures and had to change batteries, placed in anew set and it wouldn't turn on. waited about 15...


This sounds very much to me like a short circuit causing the batteries to drain so quickly. The most common cause would be moisture or water damage. Another likely cause could be a malfunction of the control circuits causing the unusual power drain. ie the camera may be continuously charging the flash.
It may be time to consider this camera has seen better days and find a replacement, unless of course it is still under a warranty.
