Gfi outlet keeps tripping

I recently moved my refridgerator to a new location. It went unplugged for two days, when I replugged it in, it keeps tripping the gfi outlet. It worked fine before the more and the new location had a refridgerator plugged into the gfi (I just replaced refridgerators -- same brand side by side Whirlpools about five years old).

Keeps popping DMI immediately when it is plugged in its a refridgerator


Refrigerators need to be plugged into a regular outlet without anything else plugged in. DMI's, GFI's, or GFCI's are designed to trip at the slightest increase in amp draw. When the compressor turns on the outlet senses the spike and trips the curcuit. So to fix the fridge plug it into another outlet that is not part of the dmi circuit.

Why wont my sharp lcd LC-32D44U turn on?


Well, there could a be few issues. First thing is to verify the breaker that gives power to that wall has not tripped off in the home's break power panel. If it is not tripped then verify the wall outlet that the TV is plugged into has a reset button, like a GFI (ground fault interrupt) If it does then verify that it has not tripped. If the GFI on the wall plug is tripped simply push the reset button back in and then try plugging in your TV power plug again. Then if that checks out or does not have a GFI outlet, verify that the power plug going into the back of the TV is not loose. Unplug and replug power plug that plugs into the back of the TV in and verify it is securely connected. Lastly, the power supply in the TV might have gone out.

Hi Maurika, thank you for your question. Often when a unit is recently installed and trips the breaker, it is typically because it may have too many appliances running on one particular outlet, using a GFI plug or an issue with the breaker. If any prove ineffective, then I recommend having an actual diagnosis from an experienced tech would determine the precise cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Seacoast magic plus keeps tripping gfi breaker


try in different GFI outlet, if it trips the new one, the coffee maker is dangerous and you should return/replace it, it has a short.

if it doesn't, replace the GFI outlet, it is old.

Purchase new 32'' tv 2-day ago, will not work in a GFI plug outlet trips GFI each time you reset, is there something wrong with unit? works fine in a non GFI outlet


Good News!!! GFI outlets are made to trip when a large amount of power is pulled through them. A GFI is basically a small circuit breaker.Your television set is probably just pulling more amperage than the GFI is rated to handle. That means the GFI is working properly And so is the TV!

After moving to a new home, the freezer keeps tripping the breaker every few days


My first instinct is to ask you, are you plugging this freezer into a GFI outlet, one which has a breaker switch as part of the outlet? If so, that is the culprit and not the freezer, as refrigerators and freezers will often trip this ground fault indicator because water can on occasion reach ground, which causes the breaker to trip on the outlet.

Test this by plugging the freezer into a non GFI outlet for longer than a few days. Nothing is broken and you dont need refrigerator repair service.

Iran a 220 line from breaker box im getting 110 from each side of plug but the air wont work it has one of those trip plugs


A GFI? ... Outlets in the home away from water do not require GFI protection. If this GFI outlet is over your sink ... consider moving your AC to another location. If it is away from the sink ... plug it into a non GFI protected outlet.

Machine won't start- checked plug -didn't start- used yesterday and worked fine. tried unplugging and replugging but didn't help. Help!


Make sure that the AC receptacle has voltage by plugging in another device. If it is dead, the breaker servicing that outlet may have tripped (without reason, I've replaced a couple of failed breakers) or the outlet may be protected by a 'Ground Fault Interrupter' (GFI). If this is tripped it would be due to either a momentary imbalance of the line or possibly electrical leakage within the washer. This latter problem needs to be cured as it presents a safety hazard if the GFI fails to trip as it should.

Fridge keeps tripping electricity


I assume by "earth leakage" you mean it is on a GFI circuit? Some older GFI outlets are sensitive to and do not work well with motors or other inductive loads like your refridgerator compressor. As for the compressor feeling hot, this is usually normal.

If this is a GFI outlet, try replacing it with new unit. If it is a GFI breaker, try replacing that.
