Refrigerator keeps tripping the GFCI outlet. We replaced the outlet. Still have problem. It first happened several months ago (just once), but has happened several times during last few days.


GFI circuit breakers are weak when used with refrigerators and other appliances that use amperage especially during defrost. Replace with a normal 20 amp receptacle

My refrigator/freezer is kicking off the circuit breaker each time I plug it in


Two obvious possibilites. One, it may not be the only unit on that circuit. If you have a 15 or 20 amp breaker, and have more than one unit like this, you are pulling too many amps for the breaker.That happens frequently. The other possibility is a dead short somewhere in the unit. Try plugging it in to a different outlet that you know has nothing else on that circuit. If it comes on and runs, You need to run a didicated circuit for this freezer only. A dead short in the machine will kick any outlet that it is plugged into. You will have to isolate each circuit in the freezer to find which one is grounded out.

GFCI on refrigerator circuit cuts off.


Yes. Refrigerators should not be on gfci protected circuits. They should have a dedicated 120v circuit .If your kitchen is new enough to be wired with gfci breakers ,it should also have an outlet dedicated for the refrigerator.

ABOUT ONCE PER DAY THE CIRCUIT BREAKER WILL GO OFF DUE TO THE REFRIDGERATOR. WHILE TURNING OFF THE UIT IT SPARKED AT THE OUTLET.


You should turn off the power to that circuit, and replace the receptacle. The problem is most likely in the outlet

Circut Breaker trips


  • i have no experience with RV units but if it were in a house i would suspect a bad breaker or a problem with the outlet itself. breakers  only trip when the wiring is gets hot.
  • unless it is a ground fault breaker (usually on the outlet) then this would trip if the flow of electricity is grounded. ground fault breakers do go bad often.
  • i think if the refrigerator itself had a problem then it would be consistent (as far as it is pulling amps anyway). not work fine sometimes and not others.

Refrigerator tripping ground fault circuit


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.
