My Vestfrost wine fridge (more than 10 years old) now trips the mains in my house everytime it is plugged in to turn power on. Had to keep it off power to prevent blackout. Who can I call to check if it is...


Does it trip in a fraction of a second? That shows a direct short. Does it take, lets say, 10 seconds? That could mean that the compressor will not start, and usually that can be fixed with a new start relay.

Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker


get an inexpensive clamp amp meter (Harbor Freight has them). Turn off power to the plug. Remove plug from wall but do not disconnet wires. turn fridge OFF. plug the unit in the recept. turn on the power. set the meter for the higest reading (amps) & clamp it around the black wire. turn the fridge ON & observe start up current & the "run" current. If the fridge is within limits on the data plate the problem is in the wiring circuit, maybe a loose connection either @ the plug or the breaker. if there are several plugs in the circuit, the problem could be in one of them. In addition, if there is a gfi plug in this circuit, it could be faulty also.

Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker


Your fridge should draw no more than 5amp. Presuming your breaker is at least 15amp there's a problem. Move to a different circuit first. If the condition persists check the start relay on the compressor. I have a suspicion the circuit may have another item you are not aware of.

Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator keeps tripping GFI outlet.


We had same problem with different fridge. Is the fridge cooling things? When ours did that we needed to replace the relay overload start capacitor it's called a three in one. It acts like a giant battery to give your compressor a n extra boost to get started runs about 25 bucks relatively easy fix only has three wires to connect
