220 Breaker Hums and Trips Main Breaker

I have a 220 breaker that hums when turned on. It goes to a second breaker at the AC. Then that breaker feeds my well. I replaced both breakers. When the AO 200 a60 breaker is on at the AC box that feeds the well, it makes the breaker in the main box hum for a few seconds and then it trips the main box breaker. Any help please!

Something is not drawing the current correctly. You need a meter to test it, time to call in an electrician.

Just a word of advice- unless you really know what you're doing, call in a professional who is licensed and insured. If you fix this yourself and there is a fire, the insurance company will investigate the cause of the fire. If it is determined it was a faulty repair, they will not pay. If you did the repair yourself, you are screwed:( In the event that the professional made the error, you have recourse and can sue him.
