Rickheatdoc :

Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help you solve your problem

Rickheatdoc :

Probably not. It's unlikely anything gas related could trip a breaker. Gas controls are typically low voltage

JACUSTOMER-yzi3nsx8- :

So what would trip breaker.

Rickheatdoc :

Is there a blower on your unit?

JACUSTOMER-yzi3nsx8- :

Yes and its blowing now.

Rickheatdoc :

given the age of the unit it is the most likely culprit. could also be a short in the wiring

JACUSTOMER-yzi3nsx8- :

What is the most likly culprit.Blower is working smothly.

Rickheatdoc :

that doesn't mean the blower motor didn't trip the breaker.

JACUSTOMER-yzi3nsx8- :

Ok thank you very much.

Rickheatdoc :

There is nothing else on your unit that has the capability of tripping a breaker except a short
