Question about Frigidaire FRT15G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have a refrigerator we are having problems with. It is a Kelvinator brand manufactured by Frigidaire located in our garage as a backup for sodas and such. Approx 7yrs old. The problem started when we moved it to our new home. I plugged it in and it runs for a day or two, then it trips the ground fault circuit at the recepticle and shuts down. It also trips what i believe to be a circuit breaker mounted inside the fridge. I have to reset the one inside the fridge by spinning it with my finger tip until i hear it "click" and then I reset the ground fault at the recepticle and it fires right up and works flawless for another day or two or even a week; Then with no warning it trips again. I checked the circuit and its a 15amp and replaced the ground fault recepticle with no luck. I also tried plugging the frige into a different ciruit and still had the problem. My thoughts are leaning to the circuit breaker inside the fridge or maybe a compressor overheating and tripping the breaker. Any ideas what might be causing this problem?? Thanks for your help.
The thing you were "spinning" was the defrost timer, not a circuit breaker. The problem may be you have a shorted defrost heater; It is on a timer that runs it for 30 minutes every 8 hours of compressor use.

You need to plug it into a reg. outlet once for a couple days if this works then replace your gfi with a 20amp..

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that the power cord to your Frigidaire air conditioner got wet and you would like to know if you can change the cord with a different brand. Even though the cords may be the same voltage it would not be recommend to interchange the cords. I would suggest contacting your manufacturer for proper replacement parts. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
