My Springdale trips a fuse when the air is on

During the night, the fuse will trip , shutting my air conditioning down. I have to get up during the night, & flip it back on. It works for a while, till morning. What could be wrong?

If you check voltage, it might be low. As voltage drops, the amperage has to increase to do the same work. That cause the breaker to trip. You might also see that the A/C isn't drawing too many amps when it restarts the compressor when it's hot. (the compressor, not the air temp) Have you noticed if the breaker is tripping when the compressor is coming on?

It also could be just a weak breaker, they do occasionally go bad.

Or it could be a bad start capacitor on the A/C. Low voltage is much more likely to be mid day when everyone is running the air along with other devices. At night, not so much.

I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

Check for loose connections at the breaker and AC unit.
