Looking for anyone who has experienced high amp draw on start-up (enough to trip a 15A breaker.)
I have a D5 Airtronic that is on its second season of pretty smooth operation. The other day it kicked off the breaker. Each successive re-start keeps tripping the CB. However, it appears to be getting farther through the start cycle with each re-attempt. I've stopped re-starting as I don't want keep pushing my luck. (I need to respect the breaker's purpose, and I don't want to building up excess fuel
in the unit.)
-No fault codes. These are deleted when the breaker trips.
-Combusition air intake is free and clear.
-Fans turning freely, and 20A fuses
are all intact.
-Good system voltage 13.3vdc measured at the pigtail, pins 1 & 10. (System requirement is 11-14 vdc).
-Last attempt, fuel pump
was ticking away slowly (normally) then the breaker tripped right when it usually doubles speed for the start-up.
-Was running well for three weeks on diesel
, (was on kersene all last year).
Are there any tech savvy folks out there willing to take a stab at this puzzle?
