Question about Refrigerators
You are sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit anywhere? Have you checked outside the garage? You could be getting water into the plug outside, you could have a nick in the wire inside the wall. this could be caused by a staple pinching the wire. If you are able to follow the circuit wiring and go back to the beginning of the circuit and install the GFCI in the beginning plug outlet. Do not connect the rest of the circuit just the wire from the breaker to the first outlet. If it holds then your problem is between the first and last outlet. narrow down the are this way. You can also buy a cheap "dummy" tester that has 2 yellow and one red light on it. The tester will tell you what problem you may have.

Refrigerators are not designed to run on a GFCI. Try a heavy duty extension cord to the fridge from a outlet that is not GFCI protected. If it still trips you probably have a short circuit in the compressor.

Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

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.
