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

Circuit breaker trips after water supply cycle


check the condensor fan in the compressor area and make sure its running if not the compressor will overheat causing high head pressures on the compressor causing it to draw too much current to operate the compressor and kick the breaker out,also make sure the condenser coils there are clean and it has ample air movement away from the wall

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.

How many outlets will this carry?


While there is a practical limit for the number of outlets on a 15 or 20 amp general purpose lighting circuit in a _residence_, the National Electric Code (NEC) does not impose a # of outlets per circuit limit (residential ONLY).
However, some electrician's design general purpose lighting circuits in a residence using a point system. An outlet is 2 points and a light is 1 point. So, for a twenty amp circuit, (10 outlets x 2 points) = 20. Or, (5 outlets x 2 points) + (10 lights x 1 point) = 10 + 10 = 20. Or (8 outlets x 2 points) + (4 lights x 1 point) = 16 + 4 = 20. However you want to mix it up.

Now, if this is for a Commercial building, the the NEC allows no more than 180 VA (Volt Amps) per outlet. 180 VA / 120 Volts = 1.5 Amps.
20 amps / 1.5 Amps = 13.3 outlets. Drop the .3 and one determines that 13 outlets are allowed on a Commercial 20 amp circuit.

Also, if the 20 amp circuit is considered a continuous circuit (ON for more than 3 hours a day), then it can only be loaded to 80%. 80% of 20 amps = 16 amps.

The hottub keeps kicking the circuit breaker off.


Either the breaker is bad or you have an electrical problem. Unless you know how to work with electrical problems call for service. If you unplug the hot tub and plug a lamp or hair dryer into the outlet does the breaker trip? If yes, call an electrician. If the outlet is fine call for service on the hot tub.

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.

If lights are on for a few hours the breaker interupts the power. Happens on all four bedrooms


If you have one try another breaker, if that does not help you probably have wire heating up and arking or a bad ground most likely in a wall outlet as that is the place most often that the wires can get jammed together and either ground out on one another or be loose and not making adequate contact. In most cases the lights in a room are powered off a wall outlet

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
