Air conditioner tripping breaker


My air conditioner is tripping the breaker and the house fan just runs. It only seems to do this when the temp is over 100 degrees outside. My husband added a hard start to it and that didn't help. So now I am looking for help before I spend who knows how much on a hvac person. Thanks for any advice.

Re: Air conditioner tripping breaker


Does it trip right away?
You may have dirty coils causing the AC to work hareder, or you may have a compressor going bad.

Re: Air conditioner tripping breaker


No it wasn't tripping right away, it would run for about 5 to 10 mins then trip. The coils are clean, my husband replaced the breaker and tightened something on the ac unit and it's working fine now. Thanks for the advice though.
