QUESTION FROM PJRG

I have an Intra Therm central air unit that stoped working. I replaced the single pole breaker and now when the unit is turned on the breaker is still tripped. I can still run the unit by forcing contact of the breaker and this will allow the unit to run. I have checked all other electrical conections on the unit and can find no other short to cause the breaker to be tripped. Need AC asap please help?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear PJRG:

If your air conditioning unit trips immediately after resetting, unfortunately the problem is usually a shorted compressor and it will have to be replaced. I would advise calling a qualified air conditioning technician to identify and repair the problem. In the meantime, I would suggest not running the unit if it is tripping the circuit breaker off, to avoid damage to the unit.

Hope this is helpful.
