Question about Smeg Refrigerators
Our fridge freezer is 9 yrs old - has worked perfectly until recently when the appliance kept tripping the electrics. We replaced the motor - but 7 days after which it was working perfectly - began tripping again. The electrics in the house are fine as we have isolated the problem to the machine itself. Do you think it will be the compressor? There must only be two things that can go wrong surely?
Could be the breaker. Sometimes breakers just get old and will not hold when a power surge goes through it as when an electric motor first starts up. You have already replaced the compressor with a new one so I would check out the breaker situation. STAY with the same size breaker

This sounds like a grounded wire in your defrost system. Start by finding the defrost timer and checking the wires. One may have been pulled loose or pinched while it was being moved.

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.

unplug the fridge,remove the electrical cover on the compressor to see if any wires are burnt off.you may have a defective start relay,wire off or compressor seized,that age not cost wise to replace compressor
