It looks like your compressor is the problem , you can try to put a starting kit if it doesnt work you will have to change the compressor!

How do you add the refrigerant yourself


These units are built in such a way that you cannot do it yourself, unless you happen to work in the refrigeration repair business (HVAC). They do this for safety reasons. You have to vacuum the old gas out of the cooling unit before recharging it.

Actually, its a True T-72 refrigerator. After running for a few weeks, the unit trips the breaker and continues to do it unless I leave it off for a few days and then re-plug it in, at which point it runs...


some manufacturers use a heater in a pan for the condensate water that is generated from the defrost cycle. It is usually located near the evap and compressor area. I've even seen them under the condenser coil. Look for a heated pan. You may have a bad heater. When it goes into defrost, water enters the pan and trips the breaker as the heater may be open and water enters it shorting it to ground. Waiting a few day allows the water to evaporate out. And the process starts all over again.

I would look for this first. If this does not pan out, let me know and we can dig alittle deeper. But try to have more details.

Condensing unit terns off but won't come back on kicks off breaker


If it runs, turns off, then tries to restart and kicks breaker, look for bad start components. Check start relay, start capacitor. It may be trying to restart too quickly and the compressor over amps and breaker trips. The system needs to have at least 3 minutes of off time before trying to restart. This allows the pressures in the system to balance enough so the compressor can overcome the high side pressure and start. I've seen where people turn the control up and down very quickly causing the compressor to over amp and trip breakers and over loads.
Hope this gets it for you.

No light on door and motor not running


Have you checked your breaker switches in the circuit box? If tripped, the breaker will rest in a half way position.

Turn it all the way off and then back on.
