Answers :

Try the FAN ONLY position and start it.
\015\012Could be a stuck fan motor or a bad capacitor..
\015\012Remove the cover. Have someone turn it on. Once they turn it on spin the fan by hand. If it starts and runs replace the capacitor.

My unit was working fine until 3 days ago when the breaker tripped, I reset the breaker and worked fine for a day then tripped again when it tripped both the ac breaker andthe main in the trailer as well as the main breaker on the pole. Now it trips all 3 breakers when the ac breaker is reset even with the t-stat off. The only problem I can think off is a short somewhere but it just seems odd that it would pop up all of a sudden, seeing as the trailer hasent been moved for three years.


High amp draw can be caused by a few different things, so first check that incoming voltage to trailer is sufficient. (115 volts) Not unusual for some parks to install more hydro hook-ups on a feed line, and when all are up and running, your incoming ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have 60 amp circuit breaker on my electrical a/c heater with a 45 amp fuse. I had the unit for 7 years with no problem. This month the 60 amp circuit breaker keeps tripping when the heater goes off. The 60 amp circuit breaker does not trip all the way. Do you think I have a bad circuit breaker? Shouldn?t the 45 amp fuse blow before the 60 amp breaker trips.


You're unit is a 31/2 ton according to the numbers.Normally, breakers will only be in a half way posistion when tripped. Yes, under most conditions, the fuse will blow before the breaker trips. I have seen this many times, the breaker may be weak, bu ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

My hydropool spa is tripping the circuit breaker. I moved my hottub off the deck onto a concrete pad next to the deck last summer. No problems, then over the first winter I went out one day and the breaker had tripped. I reset the breaker, no problems, happened two more times during the winter. I reset the breaker - no more problems. I should say that I was using the hottub during the winter and into the spring time with no problems. Now the breaker tripped and wouldnt turn the tub back

Unit keeps tripping breaker everytime i put the power to it. was working fine then began to trip the breaker. power supply cords test okay, but each time i reset breaker the unit comes on for a couple of seconds and then trips the breaker.


Hi, It's drawing too many amps. Could be a shorted wire, bad fan motor, or a bad compressor. It could also be the relay in the outside unit. One side of the relay could not be contacting.I would pull the disconnect outside and look at the co ... AmcorAire UCHW-H24AF2 Split System Air Conditioner

Dometik Duo Therm Brisk Air rooftop trips AC circuit breaker when the weather turned hot. When circuit breaker is reset, the unit will run for 5-10 minutes, cooling nicely, and then trip the AC circuit breaker again. I changed the settings, but it did the same. Once the outside temperature went down, that evening, I tried it again. The AC worked fine all night and the next morning,and when it got hot outside next morning same thing, trip the breaker

Hello, I have goodman 3 ton a/c that runs ok for about a half hour or so then the condenser stops running because the circuit breaker pops off. The a/c tech check the units draw ( 13 amps) and thought it was ok. We thought then it was a faulty breaker. We then put a new breaker (30 amp). Later same result. a/c works ok then trips breaker. Wait awhile then reset breaker and it runs again. What would cause the breaker to trip like that. Any ideas? Thanks


First of all, let me caution you to remove the 30 amp breaker and put back the 20 that was there. It's not to code. It's too big for the wire size. Second, you will need to monitor the circuit with a 'clamp on' amp meter to verify the current d ... Goodman CKL36AR36 Air Conditioner

My well keeps tripping the breaker but when I run power from the breaker straight to the pump the pump runs fine. I have replaced the disconnect box located at the well but everytime I hook it back up the breaker trips but does not trip with the box disconnected. Pump is not hooked up at the box during this.


Maybe undersized wire, or breaker is loose on busbar.http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html ... Air Conditioners

Have a package unit that is tripping the circuit breaker early in the morning, around 5 a.m. each day for the past few days. The blower fan motor was recently replaced, but it seems to work fine, all day in fact, after resetting the breaker. (After letting rest for a bit before resetting the breaker.) Why would it only trip in the morning? It cuts off and on fine all other times, but only in the morning does it trip.

Goodman heat pump model CPKJ421B. Tripped breaker for outside unit two weeks ago. Reset breaker, tripped again today. Unit won't run now. Did some basic checks and found that the 28 vac from the inside unit was not going through the low pressure switch to pull in the 220 vac contacter for the compressor. Possibly either the refrigerant is low or the low pressure switch is bad. Could a faulty switch, maybe losing and regaining contact quickly, trip the breaker? Could the refrigerant, just before

My roof top ac for my rv was tripping the breaker after ten minutes in 110 degree heat. I was told my compressor was probaly bad. I tried it in the evening and it didnt trip the breaker ran fine could the heat be making it trip the breaker and my ac compressor in good condition.

Hello, my heat pump is a 4 ton unit, it heats ok but it keeps tripping one of the breakers, the 40 amp cooling breaker.

Have a amana window ac unit. It has triped the breaker. When i turn the unit off and plug it back in, it still trips the breaker. I took the cover off and disconected the control panel and it still triped the breaker. I then removed the power to the capasitor and pluged in the control panel and the breaker did NOT trip (stayed on). Do I have a bad capasitor. If i replace it will i need to dead short it out.

I have outdoor Goodman compressing unit, model #cple24-1c. The breaker tripped and I was told to take out the connector located in the box by the unit and reset the breaker. The breaker did not trip again. I was told to replace the electrical whip because we had alot of rain recently. Is this right?


No, the electrical whip should be able to handle all weather, moisture, and even immersion. The only reason to replace a whip is if it has suffered some kind of physical damage. I recomend keeping an eye on it and if it trips again, have a pro come ... Goodman Air Conditioners
