    I defrosted my GE 20 cu ft freezer, plugged it back in and it tripped the GFI it was on so I reset it and turned the breaker back on. Now the light is on in the freezer but it won't run.

SOURCE: my brand new freezer wont freeze

I would plug it into a different plug in - not one that is on the same circuit that it is plugged into now. If the plug in is working for other things, it still may be bad and not able to handle the load of the freezer. If your freezer will not work on a completely different circuit, then there could be something wrong with the freezer, but it is not likely since two of them should not be bad. Seems to me more like an electrical problem in your location. Hope this helps you, Rick

My power wen out and now my kenmore chest freezer high temp alarm is beeping and now it wont cool


I'd turn unit off...unplug it for a few minutes...plug it back in...and turn it back on setting the thermostat again.

Hopefully, you'll hear the compressor kick in and start cooling again.

Hope this helps...

Freezer begun tripping our 20 amp breaker for some reason


ok hi there i viewed the specs for this freezer
http://www.truemfg.com/catalog/servlet/com.apsiva.servlet.HomeServlet
this unit must be plugged into a 120v outlet with a 15amp circuit breaker dedicated (nothing else should on this circuit) so all by itself. you have to check the voltage outlet where you plug in. you must have at least 115v or better (125v the most) if you have less then 115v it will cause damage. ok you went and checked all this out and everything is 15amp with 115v or better and it still trips breaker.
ok the running amps is 6.8 amps so to blow the circuit you need 15 amp which is too high.
i suggest you call a refrigeration guy because he will be able to determine if the problem is the compressor (which has a 4 year warranty with truemfg.com only in the USA) or something else. Usually but not 100% what would make a freezer like yours to blow the fuse is the compressor. if it overheats it will do this, if there is a sudden high pressure within the system it will do it, if you have a condenser fan that is not running at proper speed it will do this...
the problem cannot be pin pointed understand please... you have to babysit it, watch for changes in the refrigeration system and the running compressor amps, voltage drops ( this will cause high amps) etc...
Refrigeration is not easy and alot of tech stay away... so those who stick it out make money cause you have 2 choices: buy another one and pay big bucks to get it fixed. at least see if you can find someone to come over (for like $40 - $60) and tell you exactly whats wrong with it... whew... hope this was helpful and not confusing...sorry

First check for bunrt wires that can be grounded, then you can disconnect the compressor and plug the freezer and if doesn't blow the breaker , the compressor is bad ,if still blows them ,put the compressor back and try the fan , then try the other fan(inside one) or also could be the light switch, or the defrost heaters.

Once in awhile, Circuit Breaker Trips


Your compressor start relay contacts may be getting loose or worn, resulting in a delayed start on the compressor.
If the start device includes a capacitor, it could be getting weak.
GFCI are not good receptacles for devices with high starting torque.

Freezer Problem


If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.
