air handler breaker tripped 2X
 
People,

Breaker tripped 2X. Also, seems the circuit is also feeding a 110v circuit to bedroom light fixture as it is out too. Im gona check out the light socket integrity (its old). But if I dont find anything there, what next? Open up the air handler box?

Thaks!

If its also feeding a 110 to a bedroom. After you find the cue of the short and fix it. Run a separate line to the 110, or air handler, as the air handler is suppose to be on its own circuit.

Good tip on the ac being on seperate circuit. I didnt know. Found the problem- it was a distorted base on a regular light bulb! Easy! Thanks, beenthere.
