I have a GG350 Powerlift but it seems that the circuit breaker will not reset so I don't get any output. Where do I get a new circuit breaker or should I look further into the problem?

Yes you should indeed find out WHY the breaker is tripped in the first place? and why it will not reset.
The ONLY thing that will cause a breaker to trip,and not be able to be reset, is a short circuit, across the "line" Phase and Neutral, usually that or a Short to Earth? This MUST be checked out first. One must NEVER EVER simply replace or indeed reset a breaker without first finding out exactly WHY it occurred in the first place. Breakers seldom if ever spontaneously break down.
This may happen if there is a fault in the circuity in the Gen.
To be able to really do anything one must obtain a service manual first.

Hi, I have a nice master B150D that ran flawlessly last season,brought it out this year replaced nozzle,spark plug,new fuel. Fired it up ran for 30 sec. pop's the circuit breaker,reset,runs 20 sec....

if a circuit breaker pops i assume its an RCELD or is it a MCB type
it is some leakage to earth somewhere in the electrics
if it runs and pops the breaker
and you can plug it in and it will sit there
then i assume its something do do with the fan system
or ignitor . driver system
look for sources of leakage to earth
and you could measure the peek current it uses with a multimeter inline
set to AC amps

anyway its defo not a gonner just some bad electrics

Neptune dryer has power but will not spin.I hear a faint click comming from the left side. model#MDE9700AYM

An electric Neptune clothes dryer, like most electric clothes dryers, has two circuit breakers: one for the drum and another for the heating element. Both breakers need to be in the "on" position for it to run properly. Go to your main circuit box. Reset both of the dryer's circuit breakers to the "on" position. If one of the breakers trips again, there's a problem with the dryer component that it operates. Contact a dryer repair technician to evaluate the machine's condition.
The lid switch is a small latch located on the interior of the door frame on your Neptune clothes dryer. It keeps the door securely shut when the dryer's on to prevent injury should you open the door and reach inside while it's turning. If the lid switch becomes damaged, the dryer won't turn on even though its lights might work. Run your finger over the lid switch and listen for a clicking sound. If you don't hear a sound when the latch is compressed, it's faulty and needs to be swapped out.

The thermal cut-off is a heat-sensitive safety feature on a Neptune clothes dryer that shuts off the heating element if the dryer overheats. After it activates, it can't be reset; you must replace it. Until it's replaced, your dryer might only partially function, so while its lights might turn on, the dryer might not spin or heat. Don't exchange an old thermal cut-off for a new one until you first determine what promoted it to trip, otherwise your dryer likely will overheat again.

Aqua spa pack breaker tripped

A breaker trips if it getting feedback. Feedback can be caused by water or a crossed wire, or an electrical component failure. You said it's pumping water on the ground so the pump is working. Then if you put it back in it trips, so you pump isn't able to push the water to where it has to go and therefore your getting a pressure buildup which falls back on the pump sensors and stops it before you blow up something, it is saving you from disaster of property or personal injury, this is a good thing. You have a clog in your pipes or you have a valve that is closed that shouldn't be, but it's the back pressure that is blowing the breaker I think. I take it it is on an isolated circuit in your house and isn't sharing anything else that could be drawing to much on that circuit. Anything electronically new in your house? I don't think it's electrically related just asking.

Vacuum quit in mid job will not start again

Don't know if your vacuum has a fuse in the power feed circuit. Most modern appliances do. If so, the fuse is shot. If not it's iether got a bad internal connection or the motor is fried. Also you mentioned a "reset". this sounds like a circuit breaker. Sometimes these breakers go bad and are replaceable.

Replaced circuit breaker with a brand new one. There is still no power to anything that runs off that circuit.

Did you check the output of the breaker?

If you replaced the breaker (with one of the types specified on the panel cover) and there is still no output between it and the neutral bar, then there's some sort of problem with the bus bar in the panel. You should shut off power at the service disconnect and carefully inspect the portion of the bus bar to which the breaker connects. You're looking for darkened / pitted copper or aluminum bus. These are indications of poor continuity that result in heat. You may have luck abandoning that breaker location and selecting another, unused location for the breaker instead.

Did you check the neutral wire associated with this circuit?

An open neutral will mimic a "no power" problem like a blown fuse or open breaker - even when the fuse or breaker isn't the problem. The circuit consists of a hot and neutral. One without the other gives a "no power" indication. Keep in mind that the hot (or neutral for that matter) may test "good" in the panel, but in fact may have opened and *any* connection (splice, wire nut, device, etc.) between the panel and where no power is first observed. Check ALL locations (switches, fixtures, outlets, junction boxes, etc.) in the circuit for open broken connections. It can be time consuming - but this is the only way to find the break point. Additionally, there may be a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) receptacle that is supplying power to the part of the circuit that you noticed has failed. Press the RESET button on all of these devices to make sure none have tripped - and those that have - are reset.

Good luck!

Peavey cs1000 x

The most likely case is that one of the main output transistors (if which there are many) is shorted. When the protect circuit senses DC on the final output, it will not allow the output relay to come on to protect the speakers from raw DC. With the power removed, you can check between each outputs Emitter and Collector and you will probably find close to zero ohms. From that point you need to unsolder each of the pins of the bad channel until you find the shorted device(s) and replace them.

Fuse for relay window dodge durango 04

There is no "fuse" for your power windows. ALL of your window circuits are protected by a 25 Amp self-resetting circuit breaker in the Junction Block. Junction Block (JB) is concealed behind the left outboard end of the instrument panel cover.
I don't know which window you are calling a "relay window" but if your other windows are working, this circuit breaker is NOT the problem.

My Edgestar AP410HS triggers the circuit breaker in the circuit box outside the house after it's been running a few minutes in air conditioner mode. This is new, it hasn't happened until a few days...

Breaker tripping likely from a loose or bad connection. Wire is getting over heated from not being tight. CAREFULLY INSPECT ALL CONNECTIONS. Including inside the disconnect box outside. Possibly even a bad breaker. HIGH VOLTAGE IS DANGEROUS , if even the slightest bit nervous, call a professional! Good Luck

When i try to start my 03' sportster, it keeps

This sounds like a circuit breaker tripping. If you have a short somewhere, the circuit breaker will break with an audible click. When it cools off in a few seconds, it will reset. If the short circuit is still present, it will immediately trip again making the same clicking noise. You need to find out which breaker it is and trace the short. I don't think the starter relay is under the tank but if this is it, the relay is making a tick but the engine is not starting, you need a new relay.

Good Luck

Powerstar 115 tankless tripping reset ontop of #2 heat chamber #1 does not get overly warm mainly because of incoming water temp. but #2 seems to be heating after water flow stops to hot to touch and...

I don't have specific suggestion for tankless tripping breaker or if that is a circuit breaker problem or a tankless problem.

1) Move wires to another same-size breaker and see if problem persists.

2) Compare amp draw on tankless label with wire size and breaker size amp rating.
For example 30 amp breaker using 10ga wire is rated for 80% of listed amps or 24 amps.

3) If you are drawing full 30 amps, then 30 amp breaker is getting hot. Breaker trips with heat. Older breakers can trip more easily.

4) Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting steps.

5) Be sure to read manual for yearly maintenance requirements.

6) Add a tempering tank for incoming cold water problem.

7) All gas tankless brands can be repaired by homeowner for $330.
