First, get your money back or get a replacement for no charge. now, when you reset it, are you resetting the circuit breaker? if so, then first try another appliance that will demand near the same current as yours (~7-8 amps). if breaker does trip, check your house wiring. if not, then your unit's compressor motor is demanding too much current (assuming you have a 15A or 20A breaker)-not a pretty fix here. look for another unit

    not pretty is costly-mostly labor to change the compressor and refill freon

Maytag GS2126PADW fridge trips safety switch (earth leakage detector) after about 30 minutes. It's not caused by defrost heater.

The house that you live in might be using ADCI instead of GFCI. The newer protection is ARC FAULT DETECTION CIRCUIT INTERRUPTION. It can sense a SPARK and shut down the circuit.

My plasma tv won't turn back on after a power outage???

First, unplug the TV, wait 30 seconds to 1 minute, then plug back in & try it. This allows the unit to reset.
Be sure you AC outlet breaker has not tripped.
could also be the TV fuse or power supply PCB.
You should be sure to put a good surge protector in line with this TV as these constant surges are going to severely shorten the life of the unit.

Check breaker box for a tripped Double Breaker, probably 30A, If breakers are OK, unplug unit from wall outlet and wait 15 min. to reset the control board, plug unit it back up and check Range. You can check for power at the outlet using a voltmeter set on the AC mode.

Circuit breaker trips after 10 minutes

could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw

Runs, but overheated, tripped outlet causing freezer full of rotten food

There was a recall on these - it depends on the age.  I bought mine in 2003 or 2004, and they sent a repairman out to replace a circuit board.  Call Maytag to see if yours was in the recall.

Circuit Breaker and Dometic Rooftop RV Air

Its the watts you plug in too like ither 30 watts vs 50 watts. 30 watts will cause your wires to get hot in the unit. just pull down your breaker box and look at those white ground wires.

Air conditioner constantly shuts off

Are you saying that you have plugged the aircon into an extension lead then into a socket in the wall and that the smoke was coming from the extension lead part. If so I would suggest checking all your plug in connections and chenge the extension lead. A quick way to check the compressor is a cause is to put the aircon to fan only and see if it fails to trip out the circuit breaker, then put it back onto cooling and see if it trips (if it does on cooling then its a good possibility). Most aircons have a three to five minute time delay for starting the compressor to protect against power fluctuations (ie power cuts). Hope this s of some help.
