Breaker Problem

** The dryer runs for about 5 min then trips. **

If there was a problem in the dryer, the breaker would usually trip immediately or as soon as it started to heat. If it only trips after a while, the problem is in your breaker box.

Not only can a defective breaker trip prematurely but a bad connection between the breaker and the breaker panel can generate heat that trips the breaker. I suggest you have a qualified electrician look into the breaker box for you.
