This sounds like a bad breaker or bad connection to the breaker at the panel. If the breaker or conenction is bad it will run for a bit then trip it due to too much current. Iw ould have the breakers replaced or connections checked in the panel.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!
