You need to borrow a clamp on style amp gauge, and check amp draw on black wire in box where hydro wires connect. (PLEASE, be careful, and if not experienced in this type of test, don't try it, due to likelihood of getting a shock. ) If it's the compressor kicking in that's causing the breaker to trip, and capacitor is good, then it's usually a problem with either low incoming (supply) 110-120 AC voltage, which will cause high amperage draw, or compressor on it's way out causing high amp draw. If it's only drawing 15-18 amps, and your tripping a 20 amp breaker, then breaker is getting weak.

You can attempt to narrow down by trying fan only without cool. Then you would know it's not the fan and likely the compressor. Another way to check is by unhooking compressor, AT THE COMPRESSOR, and running the cooling. Be sure to tape bare wires, but this will ensure that it's not any wires and it has to be compressor.

Rv airconditioner trips breaker


Does it trip when fan only , or when compressor for cool cuts in? Sounds like capacitor perhaps . Get back to me with model number, and whether it's a ducted system, or blows out at ceiling assembly.

I have a Quick Cool (59516.501) which just started tripping the 20 A circuit breaker. I replaced the circuit breaker. Unit still trips the circuit breaker.


you will need to access the unit and look for burnt/shorted wires on/at compressor. if not then the compressor is locked down/shorted and will need replaced Tim

Unit turns on and hums like it wants to work but does not force air and after 3-5 minutes trips the breaker in my camper.


Most likely there is a capacitor that jump starts your air flow motor, and that capacitor is shorted and needs to be replaced. Be careful, if you don't know what you are doing, don't touch the capacitor, it has a high voltage across it.

I just replaces the small capasitor the fan runs on Low and High when I kick the thermostat down it clicks and turips breaker Dometic 57915C


If it wasn't tripping the breaker prior to replacing the capacitor, I would check my wiring again........also look for wires that may have loosened or got "pinched" while servicing/reassembling.

Check the fan relay or contacts first. If the compressor comes on then your fan may be locked and will need replacing.
