Question about Hoover Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Hoover Contour HE513TF that is tripping the power. It runs for approx 12 hours and then trips. From what I can asertain it seems to be when the auto defrost cycle kicks in. Is there a way I can turn this function off so that the fridge/freezer continues to work as I can not afford the cost to replace the defrost element for about a week?

    I have removed the defrost element/heater the fridge is no longer tripping the power. The fridge light comes on but it doesn't seem to be running now.

SOURCE: Hoover Contour HE423UFL fridge freezer continually frosts over?

I am on my fourth timer for this problem. Seems to fix the problem each time. You must remove the big chunk of ice covering the drain hole before you operate the fridge with the new timer. The contacts in the timer get burnt due to arcing inside the switch. The heating element seems to always work ok, but if the element is no good the fridge will not defrost.

Main residual circuit breaker trips fridge approximately every 12 hours


normal fridge takes 7- 12 amps to start, if after 12 hours it trips i would lean towards a compressor issue. once it heats up the comp. may draw alot of amps causing it to trip. is it the only item on that circut? does it still trip being alone on the circut?

Hoover ac 120 washing machine trips power


Have you tested the actual path from the breaker box? Meaning have you made sure that you have the amp breaker? Have you put an ohm meter on the "dead wire" (make sure there is no power on the leads and test the copper)? Have you made sure that the power neutral and power ground are not swapped (there is a test plug that is cheaply bought at the hardware store)? Have you check the wiring diagram for the machine and made sure the machine is wired right (found online usually)?

ok I assume from what you are say that the circuit breaker in the consumer unit (fuse box) trips it could be that the circuit breaker is beginning to fail (they can go weak after prolonged use) and will tend to be a problem on high load appliances the water heater will take around 12.4 amps as will the dryer heater get the circuit breaker changed

Hi:
Just make sure that if you are using an extension cable between your machine and the power outlet, this cable is at least a 12 gauge size, if you are using a 14 or 16 it's too small to handle the amps.
Other point is to check that your breaker is 20 or 30 Amp capacity.
Hope this help.

Breaker installed on generator. Keeps tripping under no load after approx. 1 minute of generator running


A tripping circuit breaker is an indication of an overload. You say there is no load on the breaker - how are you making this determination? Are you using an amprobe or some other meter?

A circuit breaker with NO load shouldn't ever trip. Likewise a circuit breaker carrying up to 80% of of the current it is rated for shouldn't trip either. Circuit breakers that carry more than 80% of their load will trip - if the load remains connected long enough. This is called "duty factor" or "service factor" The greater the load is in excess of 80%, the less time that the breaker will carry it before tripping.

An example of a 100 amp breaker with different loads on it (this 100 amp value was chosen for ease of doing the math):

80 amps - never trips
85 amps - trips after 48 hours
90 amps - trips after 16 hours
95 amps - trips after 8 hours
100 amps - trips after 4 hours
105 amps - trips after a few minutes
120 amps - trips after a few seconds
150 amps - trips instantly

This is only an example to show how a certain circuit breaker might trip under a load less than the rating stamped on the body or handle.

A circuit breaker that trips with no load or a load equal to or less than 80% of its rating is most likely defective. You need an amprobe or ammeter for amp readings. If the load is found to be 80% or less, there may be an issue of harmonics that is causing the tripping. You'll need to have special equipment and qualified persons to check harmonic problems. Most harmonic problems occur when the loads are not linear device (transformers). Examples of non-linear devices are "switching" (or solid state) power supplies like those in computers.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.
