			THINGS TO CHECK IF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER TRIPS OFTEN:

			MOST LIKELY CAUSES:

Weak breakers are pretty common and will need to be replaced.  This usually is the result 
of being overloaded over a long period of time and it becomes weak after 
it has tripped many times.

It may also be caused by a poor contact to the electrical box that the breaker is in or 
having had a loose wire attached to it. The heat  produced by these poor 
contacts will produce heat that repeatedly trips the breaker and makes 
it become weak.

Too much heat on supply voltage wires that cannot carry that amount of current for long 
periods of time. A 5 KW electric heat strip pulls approximately 20 amperes 
of current.  So imagine if you have a 60 amp circuit breaker and you have 
three 5 KW elements and a transformer and a fan motor running off it, you 
are overloading the circuit breaker.  It will work with this load on it for 
quite a while, but it will eventually start tripping and become more frequent 
in doing so.

You need to either reduce the amount of heat strips or increase the breaker 
size AND THE WIRE SIZE going to the heater.  NEVER increase the breaker size 
and not enlarge the wire as well.  You are in an area of expertise here that 
will require a real electrician.  Please consult him or have an air conditioning 
service technician and get his recommendation about reducing the heat or rewiring.

			LESS LIKELY CAUSES:
			
Hot electrical box that contains the circuit breakers.  Consult a real electrician.
