    Circuit breaker popping
    We just got a new refrigerator and the circuit braker for the air conditioning keeps popping. We live in Central FL by Daytona and it is really hot right now but we can't keep the air running. Help!!

    You don't say if the frig stops running when the breaker trips and shuts off the AC. A bit more info would be helpful.

    If the frig stays on when the CB trips, the AC is causing the CB to trip.

    If the frig shuts down when the AC CB trips. The load may be to great for the breaker, and either the AC or the frig needs a separate circuit.

    I am almost positive that the A/C would need to be on a separate breaker.
