Replacing the Breaker to Fix a Broken AC

A retail store reached out to Lauterborn Electric and explained their air conditioner was not working properly. The breaker to the unit had tripped several times and they would reset it but it would only hold for 15 minutes. An HVAC professional went out and concluded it was not a problem with the unit but a problem with the breaker.

Once Lauterborn Electric arrived and opened up the panel we were greeted with the picture that shows a wire which was burning up.  The reason for the wire burning up was a bad connection between the breaker and the wire. The lug which the wire was connected to was compromised and a replacement breaker was needed.

Once the breaker was replaced the AC was working perfectly again. The workers and patrons were thankful for the relief from the summer heat wave.
