I am trying to diagnose the cause of my circuit breaker popping off on my Grunnert Caribbean
The refer worked perfectly for years and then last week after 40 minutes or so it popped the breaker. I thought the breaker was shot. I replaced it. Without the engine
running if I energize the clutch
I can hear the coil pull the clutch
plates together and let go when I switch the power off. So it seems it was NOT the breaker.
seemed to "run" for shorter periods and now it will only run until the breaker pops for 15-20 seconds. So the coil or clutch seems to be drawing too much current
after a few seconds and overload the breaker. Can this be related to the compressor
function or is it isolated to the clutch part?
Can someone explain what is going on here and if I can repair or replace the clutch? Or is this a symptom of the compressor not functioning for some reason... gas pressure or whatever??
What tests can I do to determine where the fault is?
