Frigidaire 12000 BTU A/C window unit

My A/C will run for a while and then it trips the circuit breaker and turns off. I have tried cleaning it with a vacuum and a blower. Is it overheating, and why?

The reason that it's doing that is b/c at first its running only with the fan butwhen the compressor clicks on it trips the breaker if you have other items running off that circuit "unplug them" [even turned off items can still consume some power]. Then try to running only the ac unit see if it works a 12000btu takes a lot to run, if this doesn't work the ac may be to much for your circuit to handle and a smaller unit may be needed.

Ge 50amp gfci trips, worked great before I bought it


Hi hondo,

When an electric motor kicks on there is an in rush current called FLA(full load amps), it is usually about 125% of rated circuit amperage. Try a 2 pole 60 amp gfci circuit breaker and see if that solves your issue. Going up to this amp breaker will not be a fire hazard or cause any anomalies.

Kenmore canister - trips 15 amp circuit breaker


Check specs on unit and amperage. If it is less than 15 then the upstairs breaker is kicking off prematurely - Not uncommon event. If unit is drawing more power than specs there is excessive friction in motor bearings. Also check out brushes for good contact since they wear.

The overheat safty switch trips after one to two minutes even though the fan is running properly. The unit functions properly with the red light on the front panel comming on while it cools for a few...


If the interior of the heater is dusty and dirty, this may be your problem. Turn off the circuit breaker feed to the heater, remove the front cover and clean the interior with a vacuum cleaner with brush attachment. Pay special attention to the fan blades. Any dust and dirt that the vacuum can't reach can be blown out with a can of compressed air (like you clean a computer with) and the straw nozzle. If you use the canned air, vacuum again after blowing it out. Replace the front cover, turn on the circuit breaker and test the heater. If that doesn't solve the problem, go to the manufacturer's website to obtain parts.

My breaker is conected to a hot tub. tub was working fine in auto mode. Turned on jets and breaker tripped. will not reset can you help me


I am assuming this is a GFCI circuit breaker? If it is it will have a "test" button on the breaker. When you say "jets" i'm assuming you mean when you turn on the blower to make the air bubbles? It could be you have a problem with the blower motor. When you start the blower, it trips the breaker. Be sure the blower is in off position when you reset the breaker. The most common fault though on a spa/hot tub is with the heater. If the element goes bad, and current flows to ground, it will trip the GFCI breaker. Again try and turn all functions off. Reset breaker, and then turn on one at a time till the breaker trips. First the pump, then the heat, then the blower.
