Question about Beverage-Air Beverage Air 2- Tap Unit Model DD78 - Stainless Steel
As soon as i plug the unit in it trips the GFI outlet, I narrowed it down to the compressor side, what is the most likely problem compressor or relay??
any help is appreciated.
The "compressor side" probably consists of the compressor and condenser fan. One, or both of those could be grounded out. Try testing continuity to ground with an electric meter on both parts, if your handy with a meter. Remove relay and overload from compressor and check all three compressor pins to ground on unit. Check from each pin to the copper tubing. You should not read any continuity. If you do the compressor is grounded. :(

Refrigerators often will trip the gfi via the compressor. If you have checked all the wiring. The problem is likely in the compressor windings. I have had this occur in brand new units. Another thing to check the gfi, less expensive gfi outlets do not handle refrigeration equipment well. You should consider getting an industrial rated outlet. Hope this helps.

GFI's are sooo touchy. I would try running the unit while plugged into a standard receptical. If that works, change the GFI. If not, look farther into the compressor side. Start components, compressor, condenser fan.
hope this helps and let me know if I can be of any further help
