Question about Frigidaire Freezer 16.7 cu. ft. Upright Freezer
I have a frigidaire upright freezer. I got it from my grandmother and plugged it in and it ran fine. The next day, it tripped the gfci plug and wouldn't come back on at all. I took the defrost timer apart and got the contacts to come apart, then put it back together and it ran fine. So I replaced the timer and it ran fine for one day and did the same thing again. Please help.
Actionsnax please remove the freezer from the GFCI. What is happening on this old unit is that if the compressor shuts off then tries to come back on before the pressure in the system equalizes, the compressor can pull 12 amps. This is normally higher than the trip point of the GFCI. I had this happen years ago with a brand new Amana SXS refrig, in that case no one knew the unit was on a GFCI. The manufactures require that this units not be on a GFCI.
Hope this helps
