Get a cheap thermal imaging gun or camera that connects to your phone. Loose wires, breakers, fuse clips, joints all cause heat and will cause a breaker to trip. Also if using a breaker to start motor loads it may be necessary to oversize the breaker 250% to carry startup current. Wire size will need to match breaker size and temp ratings of lugs. Time delay fuses are much better at handling startup current.
