Electrical Question from Mark about Circuit Breaker
Background: Mark, a Homeowner from Muskogee, OK.
Question: My air conditioner keeps tripping it’s breaker (60 amp) every few days. Should I just replace the breaker? Or, should I call an electrician or a HVAC person?
Additional Comments: Great Website!
Thanks for your electrical question Mark. I would call a HVAC Service Technician who can provide a series of tests to see what the problem may be. Chances are it may just need to have some Freon added. Changing the circuit breaker is not advisable.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
