Heat pump outside unit not working


The posts are right on about the compressor or wire short. If it trips the breaker immediately after start up and all of the wire terminals are attached with no burnt ends or anything obvious then I would say the compressor is probably locked-up.

If you are not comfortable with checking out the wiring then I would call a pro in. Really it just takes removing some panels and looking at the obvious. If the breaker/fuses trip over time while the unit is operating then the compressor still may be going bad since the wire is heating up over time and the breaker/fuses are doing their job and not burning up wire and starting a fire.

Either way over 15 yrs like the previous posters said I would go new. It sucks eating it up but like they said get a bunch of bids and get the best combo that works for you. There are many factors in a new unit. I have to say the solar is a little bit of a stretch now.
