Hi there. I have a weird situation. We bought a foreclosure home 2 months ago and part of the conditions of the sale was a new HVAC system. The seller put a Goodman unit in. Since it has gotten cooler, we started using the heat and once a week, the breaker would trip on the inside unit (which is located in the attic). Now that we are on vacation and our daughter is house sitting, the unit won't stay on. A friend, who is a HVAC technician, came over and looked at it, and as suggested by my cousin, also a HVAC tech, there was a loose connection in the attic. This was tightened and things have improved, sort of. The breaker has only tripped twice and that was shortly after the connection was tightened. My question is this, how can I tell if the breaker is bad? It was suggested that this may be a contributing factor. It is a Federal Pacific, 60 amp, double pole, Type NA or NC. I also am having trouble finding a replacement. Most are available on-line only or a used one from ebay. I hate to risk buying a used one, any ideas?
No announcement yet.
