Of course it can be plugged into a GFI outlet. Sounds like you have a compressor problem.

Refrig. sometimes trips GFI, sometimes not. Unplugged plug shows 5 ohms between power contacts. What's up?


Have you checked the GFI with some other appliance? Like a mixer. Sometimes the GFI are overly sensitive.

Refrigerators has starting amps that do not done well with GFI circuits.
GFI is designed to trip with a power surge.
Refrigerators have power surges.
Find a non-GFI circuit to plug into.

It keeps tripping a GFI outlet


GFI outlets tend to wear out very quickly with a refrigerator running on them,most Manufacturers do not recommend plugging any major appliance into a GFI outlet.If you plug it into a non GFI outlet and it works fine the problem is in the outlet.

My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker suddenly trips GFI


I here this alot. If you have a compressor on a gfi the compressor after awhile would trip it. The compressor start amps is usually higher than the gfi is rated. So you have 2 choices. Replace the GFI and try to find one with higher amp ratings. Or install a normal outlet for your unit. Your code will usually call for a gfi, If it does then replace with a new gfi.
To explain the start amps on a compressor depending on your model could be 10 amps. This is for a split second. However the gfi can become week after time. You can also try to plug the unit into a normal outlet to make sure everything is good on the unit. I believe it is the gfi

GFI outlet is tripping because of refrigerator in the garage.


Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

Fridge is popping my GFI switch


refrigerators are not supposed to be plugged into gfi outlets as they can operate normally and still trip the gfi protector. try plugging the unit into an unprotected outlet and it should work fine. incidentally you'll probably have to replace the gfi outlet as it has probably weakend from being used on the refrig.
