Question about Refrigerators
It worked perfectly until we moved the pair carefully, upright about six meters. The fridge ran fine but the freezer trips the house power circuit every time. I can see no damage or exposed wires anywhere. The compressor is still hot to touch, but it was running constantly until we moved it about two hours ago. I wondered if something like the heater coil could have come loose from the movement?

If compressor is hot, it could be an issue with the starting components. Let it cool down for about an hour an it is room temperature to the touch. If the breaker trips when the compressor attempts to start, I would look at the start components. It may be just a case of unusual timing that they went bad at this time. Make sure there is nothing else on the circuit you have it plugged into. Could be an overloading issue of the circuit.

SOURCE: suddenly tripped off house
Hi akula, 200 ks to a fridgie, LG appliance, you must be in Australia;) Is it the earth leakage circuit breaker operating. If so, then you have a leakage problem to earth from the heater pad(not quite sure what that is, but this problem will need to be repaired. Am doing some research to see if there is anything that can be done without just getting a new fridge. Back to you soon.

SOURCE: Fridge not cooling
The most common thing that happens while moving a frig is when moving it they put the dolly underneath the condenser fan housing and bend it into the fan causing the compressor to overheat before it has a chance to cool down everything. If this isn't the case then I will send you a list of things to check out. Let me know.

SOURCE: freezer cold, fridge warm
The small cooling fan in the freezer compartment that sends chilled air to the food side is defective and needs replacement. Sometimes that are only frozen stuck.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect. If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply. Thank you.

This is the first sign of the compressor starting to fail.The more wear a compressor experiences, or the closer it is to failing, the longer the system will need to run to cool the refrigerator down to the proper level. This long running time will lead to higher electricity bills than usual, which is one of the first signs that something may be wrong with your compressor.

Upright and chest type freezers have their condensor coils located in the walls of the freezer. When the unit is running, the walls will be warm at the top and cooler at the bottom. If the walls aren't warm the compressor isn't running. You won't find a cooling fan in back because there aren't any coils to cool back there.
