Whirlpool model acq158xso shuts off circuit breaker

\015 Every day around 3:30 PM circuit breaker throws off then will continue to do so several times till after 5:00 PM. I think it's because electric company increases amount of electricity in lines as people turn on their A/Cs and TVs as they come home. electric co says nope.\015\012this is a 125 volt A/C and works fine other than these times or in the Florida winters.\015

Answers :

It sounds as though the unit is dirty and during high loads, it is haveing trouble keeping up. Pull the unit from it's housing and wash it real good with a hose and sprayer. Its better to pull the unit because you can get to the coiling easier and clean it the way it needs to be clean. I bet this will solve your problem, if not then it may be low on refrigerant and the compressor is locking out and this can sometimes trip a weak breaker.

We have a Maytag air conditioner model M6Y18F7B-B 10,000 BTU 240 volt. It works great when it's on but shuts off frequently and annoyingly. This makes the unit virtually useless. Why is the in line switch set to turn off so often. There is an appropriate circuit breaker on the line.

OK, this unit has an overheat switch which can go off when the air conditioner's circuits get hot and draw too much current.\015\012\015\012I don't believe that your circuit breaker is at fault, since it is not tripping.\015\012 ... Maytag Air Conditioners

Whirlpool 240V ADF18040 18000 btu A/C started shutting itself off. Only way to turn back on is to cycle circuit breaker off-on. Did this 5 or 6 times over the course of 2 or 3 days...now won't work at all. It's not short-cycling the compressor, since it did this even with the thermostat off (warmest position). ???Maybe fan motor capacitor???

Hi,Be sure and check the big yellow or main \015\012power wire over to and connected to the compressor. If it is corroded or\015\012 burned and has arched and the brass spade connector is disconnected or \015\012melted you wil ... Air Conditioners

York Stellar heat pump A/C runs for 2 minutes then shuts off . It will restart if I cycle the heat/off/cool switch, or reset the circuit breaker, regardless of method, it will run again for 2 minutes and shut back off. Fan does blow, new circuit card put in, new capacitor put in. (when capacitor was installed, problem went away for about a week, but has since returned).

The circuit breaker trips every time I turn the thermostat to on. The system hasn't been on in a few months, and when I turned it on today, it wasn't pushing cold air out. I saw that the circuit breaker trips for the "HVAC" in my panel as soon as I turn the unit to on. This is A Goodman Model A 36-15

You need to start with a basic inspection in the outside unit. For the breaker to trip immediately like that indicates a dead short. With the breaker OFF look at the internal wiring between the contactor relay and the compressor. You are looking for ... Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

Ruud furnace Model UGPH-10EBRJR Silhouette ll. blower fan stays on continously, (also draft blower) and the only way it will shut off is to disconnect power. I've replaced thermostat, fan limiter switch, switch on the blower housing, even replace circuit board (IFC). I've even disconnected the thermostat wires to circuit board and blower still comes on as aoon as power is connected. I've disconnected everything on the circuit board except for blower wires and 24 volt transformer and it still com

I have this model of air conditioner and it shuts off from time to time. It will run for a while and then power down. Then when you try to restart it will run for a few mins and shut down again. But I tried it in a different out let and it will run for a longer period of time. It is not tripping the breaker on any outlets. Is this an issue with the compressor getting over work and it shutting down to cool off?

My rv's A/C will not turn on. When I was camping I had my A/C running and when I tird to turn it off with my remote the system would not respond. So, I went to the breaker and manually shut it off. The next day, I tried to turn it on with the remote and nothing happened. I checked the breaker and it was on. I troubleshooted the electrical system from the breaker to the unit circuit bord in the coach and it has power. What step do I take?

First turn the power on to the unit and taking a pencil manually activate the contactor switch by pushing the contactor swith in. (this is the switch that the power feeds to the unit from the supply) if the unit activates and runs then you problem w ... Air Conditioners

I have a Duo Therm Quick Cool, model 59516331, mounted on a 2001 Dutchman. With the A/C on it cools great but the compressor does not kick out or cycle. The unit runs until it freezes and can't blow air. When I shut the unit off manually from the thermostat the compressor continues to run, the only way to shut it off is to shut the breaker off. I am wondering if it could be the thermostat? I have checked everything I can think of. Any advice for me?
