Sounds like something is shorted in the unit.

Start at the power cord where it plugs into the wall, following down to where it enters the back of the refrigerator and look for any crimped or smashed places that may indicate the hot has come into contact with the ground (center wire.).

From there, you'll need to have basic trouble shooting skills to determine where the short circuit is. It could be the condenser fan, the evap fan, the compressor, or any number of other things.

    Same troubleshooting procedure, only now it's the motor(s) or any one of the coils/solenoids.

You probably have a bad plug connection, make sure all the wiring in there is tight, you may see signs of arcing. A bad connection causes resistance, and therefore causes the breakers to trip. It is best to replace the receptacle on the wall outlet with a new one because the problem will just resurface again soon.

New Kenmore refridgerator trips circuit breaker


1. Check to make sure the receptacle is wired correctly. Black wire goes smaller of two inlet holes, white goes to the larger.
2. Check to make sure that the smaller blade of the 2 prongs on the ref. plug is not grounded. Use ohmmeter from smaller blade to fridge housing

MY KENMORE 1000 WATT LITERALLY WORKED FINE ONE MINUTE THEN NOTHING THE NEXT. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED.


Most likely the circuit breaker tripped or the fuse blew. A 1000 watt microwave is using 2/3 of the power available on a typical household circuit of 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged into that circuit u can have a problem. Just reset the breaker or replace the fuse and u will be up and running. if it happens alot you should consider a dedicated circuit for your microwave only.

Tripping circuit breaker


if the dryer trips the breaker right away its a problem with the dryer if its after a while its the breaker. call an electrician to make sure the wires are secured tight to the breaker and the breaker is rated correctly. i can almost guarantee its the breaker.
