Refrigerator keeps tripping the breaker...won't power up

I have a Maytag MSD2651HEW that we bought in 2006. We recently had a temporary housing situation so the refrigerator sat in the garage from December 15 to now (May 19). Today I opened it up and it had a good amount of mold and crud inside so I cleaned it up. I also figured that since the moving van is coming to move us into our permanent home on Friday (May 22) that I should plug it in.
However, every time the plug goes into the outlet the breaker trips. I got an extension cord and tried every plug on the first floor of the house with the same result.
What do I do next?

MY MAYTAG MDE9700AYW WILL NOT TURN ON


Are you getting power at the console? Also, check to see if one of the breakers has not tripped. Dryer runs on 220v and you may have tripped one breaker that will show power to the unit but won't let it start.

After moving to a new home, the freezer keeps tripping the breaker every few days


My first instinct is to ask you, are you plugging this freezer into a GFI outlet, one which has a breaker switch as part of the outlet? If so, that is the culprit and not the freezer, as refrigerators and freezers will often trip this ground fault indicator because water can on occasion reach ground, which causes the breaker to trip on the outlet.

Test this by plugging the freezer into a non GFI outlet for longer than a few days. Nothing is broken and you dont need refrigerator repair service.

pf = power failure
do= door open

the dryer is tripping the breaker because your house wiring is probly not up to snuff, or you have a bad breaker. nothing you are saying sounds like a dryer problem, but could be a big issue with house (could be very bad, could cause fire)
