My fridge keeps tripping the power


Your solution is one of two things.

First is the circuit you have plugged the refrigerator is either over its limit and the breaker is tripping because it is overloaded. In this case you will have to determine what load also share this circuit and eliminate the extra loads or move the cord to another circuit which is not overloaded. Most home circuit are wired with 14 gauge and is rated at 15 amps. When the circuit gets to 15 amp and more, the associated breaker trips to prevent overload.

Second, Your refrigerator may have a short and needs troubleshooting to find the cause. To see if it is a bad circuit try plugging into a circuit via extension cord to circuit in another room receptical. The reason I say another room, when electrical installers wire circuits, you can put several recepticles on the same circuit. If you plug your refrigerator in the same circuit you had it on before then you will get the same problem, your refrigerator tripping again. If your frig trips on a different circuit then troubleshooting the cause will normally require a tech.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Don't have power to 120v recpt. on dometic rm 2862 ref


Go to your breaker box inside the RV. Locate the breaker that is for the refrigerator. It may have tripped but still looks as if it is on. Turn it off then back on. It should click and stay firm in the on position. Now check your outlet for power. Either use an outlet tester or a portable radio. If you have power but the refrigerator is still not working you will also need to check the 12vdc power supply. The refrigerator must have 12volts to operate even when in AC mode. There is a wire from the 12vdc connection block that goes to a thermal switch on the heat riser tube to the right. That wire has an inline diode and if the diode has failed it will not allow the refrigerator to work and like wise if the thermal switch has tripped it will shut the unit down. The switch is resettable. The diode wire, if bad, will have to be replaced. If you do not have 110vac power at the outlet after resetting the breaker you will need to remove the outlet and inspect it for bad connection or broken wire and then trace the wire back to the breaker box until you find the point of failure. You will also want to check the ground bar in the breaker box and make sure the neutral wires are properly seated and tight.

I recently moved. After re-connecting my LG Fridge I noticed that you can hear the water run for several seconds before it starts to fill the glass with water. What could be the cause of this?


Usually a small leak in the water line from water valve to the water filter.
I have seen when moving a ref the movers catch the plastic water line on the back of the box on the home door to the outside and damage it.

Pull out the Ref. and inspect the tubing.

Be sure to protect your floor.

I have a Whirlpool Side by Side refrigerator. The model no is ED25QFXHT00. Two days ago my power went off and when it came back on it was not cooling.I unplug the ref and plug it back.


For a refrigerator to work properly, it must have several things. First, it must receive power. Second, the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) must run. Third, the compressor fan (close to the compressor near the rear of the unit) must turn. Fourth, the evaporator fan (inside the freezer unit) must turn.

Check out these various components.

The circuit breaker trips when I open the refrigirator even when the ref switch is off


There must be a short in the internal lighting circuit which have one functional component, the switch. It is usually a white push-button inside the refrigerator near the door. The door pushes the switch when it is closed turning the light off. When the door is opened, the button pops back out to turn on the light. In your case, when you open the door you are switching on the light but the circuit breaker trips off. It means the short circuit is in the light wiring and nothing else. Retrace the wiring and you'll surely find it there. Rewire and have a good day.

Circuit breaker trips when turning unit on. only unit on circuit has triped on several circuits can find no shorts on wiring.


DOES IT BLOW THE BRAKER AS SOON AS IT TURNS ON OR DOES IT TAKE A FEW SECONDS. INSTANTLY WOULD MORE LIKELY BE A SHORT IF FEW SECONDS THE COMPRESSOR IS PROBABLY DRAWING MORE AMPS THAN THE BREAKER CAN HANDLE SO IT BLOWS. TRY TAPPING THE COMPRESSOR NEXT TIME YOU ATTEMPT A HOUSE CURRENT START UP. i HAVE A WINDOW AIR CONDITIONER THAT NEEDS TAPPED FOR STARTUP FOR THE SUMMER SEASON. GOOD LUCK
