Haier window air conditioner

It had tripped the circuit and when I reset the circuit breaker and tried to turn it back on it wouldn't come on. So on the plug it has a rest and test button. The reset button doesn't work but when you press the test button before you plug it back in the test button works works. But when you plug it back in to the wall it trips the test button and the green light on the plug in doesn't come on...only for a brief second when I plug it into the wall until it trips. It is not my wall outlet because I plugged a lamp in and it works fine. Please help.

    I have a Haier window unit that is about a year old. During a power surge the safety power cord tripped and will not reset. I know the unit still works because when I hold down the reset button on the cord the unit will operate normally. Is there anyway to replace or bypass this saftey device without creating a fire hazard?

I suggest you check the ground of the wall socket. Many three proung sockets are not grounded.

Holmes hch6150 will not produce heat

Without having the heater to tear apart to see what is not working, you may try the following. Your heater is a 1500 watt heater and pulls about 13 amps of current. If you plug it into a recepticle that is already have load turned on, most recepticle circuits are rated for 15 amps and you have probably tripped the breaker for this circuit. Check your breaker panel to see if a breaker is tripped. If it has tripped, this will tell you your pulling to much current. Try another circuit that allows the heater to operate or find the other load on the circuit that is causing the breaker to trip. By the way to reset the breaker take the breaker to full off, this resets the trip, and then turn it back to on.
Hope this helps

I have a whirlpool electric dryer.. when I turn it on its been having a problem with staying on or not heating at all. It will spin and stay on but no heat.we have changed the element and it seemed fi

Sounds like a tripped circuit breaker in the power panel for the house. The breaker for the dryer is actually 2 breakers connected together so if one trips so will the other. Sometimes this does not happen and only one breaker trips. This condition removes power to the heating element but still supplies power to the rest of the dryer. Check to see if the breaker will reset by turning off and back on several times. Then check the power receptacle that the dryer plugs into with a voltmeter set to read 240 volts AC. If no 240 but 115 is present then replace the circuit breaker.

We have 2 breaker boxers for my house. 2 nights ago, a breaker got tripped, (too many air conditioners i'm guessing) and i flipped it back and all we well...almost. The power was lost upstairs and came...

Your main breaker may be problematic... GO to your master panel... the one with the meter, and reset everything, and on any sub panels reset everything.... Good Luck...

Had 1/2 of the outlet on breaker go off over night unable to reset and get ele to about 5 outlets

When circuit breaker trips, all the outlets and devices on it shut off, so I'm not sure what it is that you are unable to reset if only 1/2 of these devices are off. I suspect a GFI outlet has tripped, not the AFCI circuit breaker.

Make sure that there isn't a tripped GFI outlet somewhere. Look at all the outlets for a RESET button that has popped out. These outlets usually have two buttons: TEST and RESET. Press the RESET button firmly in on any outlet found with this button. These devices will only protect downstream outlets, so it is possible for part of the circuit to work and the rest not - due to the tripped GFI. If you can't reset a GFI, simply replace it and carefully replace the wires exactly as the original. Pay attention to the wires at the LINE and LOAD terminals.

An arc fault breaker that will not reset has either failed and will need to be replaced, or has detected a condition in the wiring, outlets and connected devices or appliances that prevents it from being reset.

Disconnect all devices that are plugged into all the affected outlets and attempt to reset. If a reset is possible, turn back to off and plug one device in and reset again. If a reset is possible, turn back off and remove the device plugged in and plug in a different device. Continue in this manner until all the devices have been checked. A device that prevents a reset or causes a trip should be professionally serviced before reintroducing to the circuit.

If unable to reset, there is a problem with the breaker, outlets or the wiring. You should check each outlet and make sure the wire connections are made up tight. A loose connection will be detected by arc fault breakers and trip. If your outlets are connected by wires inserted into holes on the back of the outlet, remove or cut them close to the outlet and connect to the terminals screws instead one at a time to prevent "mixing up which wire goes where".

If it still won't reset, check to see if there are any light fixtures that do not work. You'll probably have to check the connections for those, too.

If none of these steps solves your problem you'll probably have to call an electrician to make repairs to wiring.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if you found it helpful - thanks.

Need to reset circuit breaker


  • 1 Turn off the light switches and unplug appliances in the room that has lost power.
  • 2 Find your circuit breaker box and open the cover.
  • 3 Locate the tripped breaker. Circuit breakers are small, usually horizontal switches labeled by the areas of the house they serve (for example, "kitchen," "bathroom" and so on). The tripped circuit breaker will be in the "off" position or in a middle position between "on" and "off."
  • 4 Reset the breaker by moving it to the full "off" position and then back to "on." That may clear an overload and return power to the room. If the breaker re-trips, you may have too many lamps and appliances plugged into the circuit; a damaged cord or plug; a short circuit in a receptacle, switch or fixture; or faulty wiring.
  • 5 Identify and correct the malfunction before resetting the breaker.

  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    20amp breaker tripped unexpectly tonight. tried resetting at panel but won't click all the way over and little red indicator also on the breaker

    Hello, In order to reset circuit breakers that have tripped under load, you must first flip the breaker all the way OFF, before you can then turn the breaker back ON. This should reset the breaker to turn the power back on to the circuit supplied by this breaker.

    The red indicator is just there to make it easier to find the tripped breaker. Typically, the red indicator flag is a special feature of Square D QD breakers and panels.

    If the breaker immediately trips again and doesn't stay on, then the device it is providing power to, still has a fault and it needs to be looked at to determine what is causing the fault and the tripping of the breaker.

    Be sure to turn the breaker OFF if you are going to check the device for potential problems.

    I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

    My Eaton 20 amp Arc fault breaker tripped during a storm this morning. I tried the usual turn it off and back on deal and its still tripped off. It has a test button, which ive tried in the off and on...

    this is going to be a long process, you have a short on the line or the breaker is gone.
    you need to unplug all of the appliances that are on that line. (controlled by that breaker).
    turn on the breaker. plug in one appliance at a time till the breaker trip again. unplug the last appliance that you have plugged in. that will be the cause of the short.
    after all appliance unplugged and still trip the breaker, then you need a new breaker.

    Flowtron Leaf-Eater Mulcher LE-900F

    Shot in the dark here. If the mulcher is tripping and needs to turned off then back on, it's defective and should be replaced. If the circuit breaker in your house panel is tripping, try to use different circuit on a 20 amp circuit breaker. If your using a plug that is controlled by a GFCI receptacle or breaker, move to a different plug. GFCI receptacles tend trip when motor loads are applied. These are my best guesses since I'm not sure what exactly you are reseting.
