    Pentair PG2000 shorting out system

    I have a Pentair PG2000 that is shorting out my entire system at the main circuit breaker every time I attempt to turn it on. The air vents are clear and the area around the unit are dry and from what research of done those two situations would seem to be my problem. Has anyone had this happen either with this particular unit or something comparable. Im not very knowledgable with electrical work so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    hello do the wires get hot if you touch them, you may need a lower gauge #10-8 size wire. or you may need to install a larger circuit breaker.
