Furnace Trips Breaker

The guy I'm buying my double wide from just hooked up a fairly new furnace. It will run for like 6 to 20 minutes, then the breaker will kick off. The breaker does get warm. Is the breaker going bad or is there something else that he did wrong?

Since you did not buy this yet, have the seller fix it. While you are at it, test all the plumbing and look for anything else that needs fixing. We did this when we bought our home.

We once had a furnace in a mobile home that reacted the same way. The problem turned out to be a loose connection at the breaker. This happens in some of the older mobile homes that were built using aluminum wiring.

I would tell him to send an electrician out. It could be the furnace, bad breaker, short in wiring, wrong size breaker, a number of things.
