I sure hope someone can help me with this. My AC unit suddenly keeps tripping the breaker and is not really cooling the house. I had 2 different companies come up and tell me nothing is wrong with the unit. The last guy said it is probably an electrical problem.
The unit is wired to a 30 amp breaker in a separate box, which is in turn wired to the panel on a quad breaker. It is wired to the 2 - 20 amp single pole sides of a 20/30 breaker.
Should the breaker in the panel be equal to the AC breaker in the separate box? Why is the breaker tripping now after 3 years in the house? Should the 20 amp single pole legs be a double pole.
It is 100 degrees here, which is not unusual but the problem is new.
