I got mine out and it did the same thing. The high amp draw is due to the start winding not dropping out after the normal opperating speed is reached. There is a cintrifical switch in the motor that tells the start windings to dissengage. Mine doesn't trip the breaker all the time. there is a 1ohm, 120watt,+-1% resistor, gold AHR (aluminum housed resistor) in the H83 mine reads open. I ordered 1 on ebay. I'll let you know if it fixes it.
