SOURCE: fridge is tripping fuse box

if this is a new problem that suddenly occurred, then trust the fuse box...the frig has a problem. Most likely a compressor motor that has been electrically damaged...could have been power surges from utility or lightening or unknown. It also could be a wiring problem in the house...mice have been known to chew through wire insulation...they feel the warm wires and are fooled into believing the wire is a live food source and start chewing. A test of this wire problem is to remove the frig and plug in something that will demand close to the same current...(should also contain a motor)...read the frig's label on back of unit.

SOURCE: suddenly tripped off house

Hi akula, 200 ks to a fridgie, LG appliance, you must be in Australia;) Is it the earth leakage circuit breaker operating. If so, then you have a leakage problem to earth from the heater pad(not quite sure what that is, but this problem will need to be repaired. Am doing some research to see if there is anything that can be done without just getting a new fridge. Back to you soon.

SOURCE: Westinghouse 410l fridge trips new RCD's in fusebox

Tripping an earth leakage would indicate a break down of insulation in the windings of the compressor, the possibility of a short circuit in the wiring system or the defrost element down to earth. I recommend you have a certified technician check it out before you have a fire. If the Hoover is in good condition there is no reason not to replace it. Rate me please.

SOURCE: Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker

Unless there is a dedicated circuit of 20 amps to the refrigerator this will continue to happen When your refrigerator goes into defrost and other things like lights fans air conditioners are on the same circuit it will have no choice to not trip the breaker. Try this turn the breaker off and how may thing in your house stop working? You need a 20 AMP circuit or this will possibly damage the compressor or weaken the breaker because it has tripped so many time. Thanks, Please rate my solution, I have done this work for 30 years. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My Defy 621 stove causes the earth leakage to trip after a few minutes when the oven is swithed on. The thermostat was resently replaced. Could it be one of the elements, although it seems they are...


Most likely an element. When the heating wire expands inside the tube it contacts earth and kicks out the earth leakage. Select 'grill' and try the oven. If it does not trip out the lower element is the culprit. Replacement is easy for a reasonably adept handyman - just make sure that the mains are off!

The main rcd keeps tripping off round about the same time everyday


do you have a fridge with a defrosting cycle? quite often when a fridge goes into defrosting mode it can dump some voltage to earth which trips the RCD. The other possibility is an electric pump turning on doing the same thing. or it could be a trouble with your power source. if you give me more information i could possibly help you more.

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.
