Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)
We just defrosted our freezer and now when we plug it in, it trips the breaker. No problems prior to defrosting. Suggestions?
Try turning the temp control to off. Plug the freezer in for an hour and then turn the temp control down to start the cooling.

i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

Is it running? You might need to put your ear up to machine, to hear it, They run very quitely.
If not running, could be a bad cold control (thermostat), or defective relay and overload mounted on the compressor body.
If the compressor is running but no cooling, then you're in serious trouble unless,
The unit is 5 years old or newer. In that case you have factory warranty on what is called the sealed system. Contact the dealer in that case for service. Service should be free.

Testimonial: "it is what I suspected. You saved me a $100.00 service to tell me this. Thanks"
SOURCE: Freezer trips breaker
If it is tripping the breaker when the unit is in defrost this is will not be the capacitor. You could have a heater or defrost thermostat issue. Please contact a professional for a full diagnosis.
