Question about Refrigerators
Posted by Anonymous on
Check to make sure that in the process of moving a "hot" wire under the refrigerator did not come loose and now is contacting a metal part of unit.
U have a classic short circuit which accounts for the breaker popping immediately. It is not a short in the compressor because that would have popped the self resetting clixon and not the house breaker.

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.

With the unit unplugged remove the machine compartment and visually inspect for and burnt marks or frayed wiring. if non is seen, remove the wiring connectors from one component at a time and re test by plugging the unit back in. This will help you isolate the issue hopefully.
The machine compartment is on the back and the power cord is attached behind it. It is usually connected with 1/4" screws so a socket or nut driver will help you gain access.
