Amana AFD2535DEW trips circuit breaker

Sigh. Had to replace the relay overload just 2 months ago (July). Today the power just went off. We discovered the circuit breaker tripped. Reset it, tried to plug in refrigerator again. Motor tries to start, then trips the breaker again.

Wondering if this is related to previous problem or previous solution wasn't really the problem, just a precursor to this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

SOURCE: My Amana refrigerator freezer is totally off.

Ouch!
You may have lost your fridge. Try This.

  1. Unplug.
  2. Take a table lamp & plug into socket where you had fridge plugged in. Turn light on. If it lights. Fridge is trouble.
  3. If no light check another socket make sure light works if it works your socket, wiring or breaker is your problem.

  1. If fridge check wire to & from fridge make sure it is unplugged feel & look for crimp or gap in wire.
  2. Check connection to fridge some have a reset button or overload fuse. Reset or replace if you find one.

  1. If socket try another socket see if fridge runs.
  2. If it runs you will have to troubleshoot house wiring.
Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Amana sxd524v fridge-freezer tripped out the power

Hi, you can check if there is a fanmotor on the condenser section and make sure that it is working. Second, you can try replacing the starter relay which you will find in the connection area of the compressor. If this does not work, I am afraid you would have to have the compressor replaced.

There's a good chance your compressor is the problem. Since it's been working I would try it with another relay since they are pretty cheap. If it's not the relay, you'll need a tech to replace the compressor or fix the freon leak and recharge the system.

Stelrad ideal mexico super cf100 - electrical problem


There are a couple of things that can be causing your problem. 1. The controller is bad which is tripping the breaker. 2. The breaker needs to be checked or replaced. 3. circuit overload by to many appliances. In any event you will need qualified technicians to do repair. My guess is to start with the controller and have it checked because of its age. After this is done get an electrician if necessary. The kitchen circuit may be a separate issue or part of the problem. If your kitchen or an appliance in it like a stove, fridge or microwave is on the same circuit this will cause a possible overload and trip the breaker. If your kitchen is on a separate circuit and you added another appliance this could cause an overload if in use at the same time.

My lights dim and microwave fan slows when turning on toaster


ABSOLUTE FIRE DANGER
Do NOT keep overloading circuit until electric is brought up to code.

Voltage drop.
Your breaker is rated more amps than the wire ... so wire is getting hot ... and appliances are starved for power.
The breaker should trip, but somebody has put in larger breaker without installing larger wire.
So wire is getting hot as appliances draw more power than wire can safely carry ... but the breaker should trip when wire gets hot ... but breaker is not tripping because it is oversized.

Microwave should be on dedicated 20 amp circuit ... which means 1 breaker supplies voltage to microwave and nothing else. This is code today.

Lg microwave oven trips circuit breaker


The magnetron probably has a partial short pulling more current than normal as it runs, the other two items that give trouble is the high voltage diode, "sometimes cracks" to the high voltage capacitor, "usually shorts"

I have a Amana PTAC model PTC123A50AC never had any problems until this a.m. walked into office were installed no heat. Breaker tripped, reset breaker, nothing. Checked outlet, getting power. Any idea's?


To all friends! Whenever you find breaker tripped or fuse blown, it's an indication some device/s are in problem.
To get tripped breaker:
1. Condenser too dusty- clean it.2. Fan motor or compressor grounded-Replace. 3. Compressor high amps due to capacitor weak-replace capacitor. 4. Burnt wire-rectify. 5.Short circuit-rectify.

No power to dryer but have power at house...is there a reset button?


Check the circuit breaker in your housepanel. If it is tripped, resetting it will restore power BUT usually there is a reason for the breaker to trip. There may be an electrical problem with the dryer either an overload condition or a short circuit so check it's operation to be safe. If the breaker won't reset, unplug the dryer. If the breaker resets, then you have a problem in the dryer. if it still won't reset, then you have a problem in the wiring to the dryer outlet.

I have a 1995 Buick Century that out of the blue last night, the dash lights, headlights, radio, and dome light quit working. Today I checked the fuses, unplugged the battery to reset the ECM, and fished...


There could be a timed circuit breaker:

Circuit Breakers The headlights are protected by a circuit breaker in the headlamp switch. If the circuit breaker trips, the headlights will either flash on and off, or stay off altogether. The circuit breaker rests automatically after the overload is removed. The windshield wipers are also protected by a circuit breaker. If the motor overheats, the circuit breaker will trip, remaining off until the motor cools or the overload is removed. One common cause of overheating is operation of the wipers in heavy snow. The circuit breakers for the power door locks and power windows are located in the fuse box.

Frig keeps overloading circuit breaker, just repaced relay


I think the compressor has a problem with its internal running coil , or it's grounded.To check it you can disconect the power to the compressor and then turn on the breaker , and if doesn't tripped the breaker ,you know the compressor is bad.

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.
