AFCI Breaker Keeps Tripping

The boys have sure given a lot of good advice.

So if this can help you, I throw in my two cents.

When I have a AFCI breaker tripping, I replace it with a GFCI BREAKER.

If this breaker trips then I know, I have a ground fault problem.

I also look for three conductor cable sharing the same netural.

Some but maybe not all AFCI breakers have part of circuit a built in
GFCI sensing.

Well that enough information for now. How to heard back what you find.

And good luck. sign. R
