SOURCE: fridge/freezer trips my circuit 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.

If you have an OHM meter, check from the flat conductors of the plug to the ground section of the plug. Any reading at all indicates a short in the circuit. Most likely place of the short could be the compressor. If you are capable, with the unit unplugged disconnect the leads from the compressor, then see if the breaker trips when you plug it in. If not the problem is the compressor . At ten years old it would be more expedient to get a new refrigerator than to replace the compressor. The warranty is up and you would pay the big bill for the compressor and labor.

SOURCE: FRIDGE IS BLOWING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER

Most likely you have a bad or weak circuit breaker. Consult an electrician for breaker change out. Make sure that it isn't hooked up with a GFI plug. They will not work on a GFI.

SOURCE: Maytag bottom freezer Model MBF2254HEB not blowing

The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. Something is restricting that air flow which causes your fresh food compartment to stay warm.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck closed, for example), the freezer will get VERY cold while the fresh food compartment will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is restricting air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

SOURCE: our gladiator bottom freezer/refrigerator stopped

It is possible that your compressor has redduced in pumping or the gas pressure has redduced, ;leakage of gas. Sicne you had put off the fridge for sometime and tried again without any result, I think the compressor needs a good check. Since the fridge has to cool definately when the motor runs we must start from here . I hope you check this out or maybe get help to confirm definetely with an estimate. Good day.

Washer keeps blowing fuses


Do you mean the houses circuit breaker? If so, WHEN in the cycle does it blow the circuit breaker? WHEN it trips will tell you what to look at. I.E. If the circuit breaker trips during the fill cycle then it would be the walter inlet valve or the timer in the control panel; if it trips as soon as it is in the agitator cycle - then the motor or transmission; if it trips in the spin cycle - then the drain pump or transmission or control panel.

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.

Freezer frosts up and refrigerator wont stay cold. Must be defrosted..then works okay until Freezer frosts up again.


The auto defrost timer is faulty , you willhave to check the timer and teh corresponding circuit for worn out wires, bad thermostat or the defrost heaters. These circuits must be checked properly and the concerned spare can be tested for failure or malfunction. Even if the compressor is pumpiing too much to the bottom side freezer this can happen and stall the fcooling to the top section. Adjust the freezer temp lower and increase the blowing to the top section. Please check on all these suggestions and try. Helpful? Good day

Fridge keeps blowing the breaker


Depending on what is causing the breaker to blow will be important to know. Refrigerators do draw a good bit of power on a 20 amp circuit especially when the refrigerator goes into defrost. Refrigerators are made to run on a 20 amp circuit without other machines or appliances using the same power circuit. Circuit breakers weaken over time too especially if they have more than they are. rated for plugged into the same circuit. And your circuit may be doing its job by detecting an excessive draw of power when the refrigerator is plugged in. You must have someone that knows electricity to inspect your refrigerator for shorting and the circuit it is plugged to for correct wiring for every ones safety. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My neptune electric dryer keep blowing the breaker after ten min


If the dryer is running then blows the breaker , then it is not in the electric circuit, There is a fault in the dryer itself. If it blows the circuit at the same place in the cycle each time then there could be some fault in the heating coil or in the timer circuitry.

House has old wiring,going to be knocked down in 2yrs,1 part of lighting circirt keeps blowing fuse and knocking the trip off,every time I put trip on,in 20seconds it goes of again?


This would sound like an overload on the circuit. If it were a direct short the breaker would trip immediately. As an example if you had two units such as a refrigerator and a freezer on the circuit in question, both motors starting at the same time could draw enough current to trip the breaker on start up.
