Heat Pump Causes Breaker to Overheat?

I have a heat pump for the emergency heat. When it kicks on the heat strip and the blower motor overheat the breaker, so I replaced it. It's a 60 amp breaker, do I need to put a slightly bigger one in?

It is probably too much electricity for the breaker to handle. You may need to get an upgrade on your breaker

I would put in a higher amp first.
If that does not work call a repair man.

It seems that you have too many things plugged into this one breaker. You'll need to get a new breaker and if you need to use the heat pump take a few things off the breaker when it's running.

your heat pump may require 220 instead of 110 volts.
