How to figure out what’s wrong with my air conditioner?

DfmSpudBreadKelli L. Milligan


My ac unit kept tripping the breaker so the ac tech replaced the breaker and it tripped again once so far. Two different techs have checked the unit and can’t figure out what’s wrong. They said it may need an electrician?

    Sounds like your breaker isn't the right size for the unit. I would recommend getting someone, electricity is nothing to mess with.

    Then call an electrician. If it isn't the AC unit, it may be it needs it's own circuit and the installer did not do a proper job. Better safe than sorry.

    YEARS ago when living on the ARIZONA desert-- people constantly had that problem -- caused by CLOGGED FILTERS-- replace or CLEAN the filter-- see if it helps!!! Much cheaper-- hope that takes care of the situation.

    Yup, it may be fuse, it may something the power supply may be doing a rotating black out, not uncommon in my area.
