Is it a GFI that it is tripping. If it is using an extension cord try plugging into a non GFI outlet.

Westinghouse RPG423GR fridge is freezing and tripping circuit is this the thermostat? Is a wiring diagram available?


The compressor windings shorting out are usually what trips the breaker. Someone will need to test the windings and if they are defective it will be best to replace the fridge

Our Westinghouse RS662V fridge is tripping the power. Has done it twice in the past 2 months. Any suggestions?


This solution is one possible answer if it applies to you. My fridge did the same and i thought the fridge was dead. The fridges freezer compartment's door was being left open and the freezer would thaw out and produce lots of water which would accumulate in the rear in a container which overflowed causing the fridge to trip the power. Closing the door and drying the rear container solved the problem. There are other causes too but if this applies to you it is worth giving it a try. Good Luck!

Westinghouse fridge thermostate replacement


Without drawing a diagram, and assuming you have the controller, you need to do two things: Power the controller by finding a wire pair in the fridge that is always hot, and finding the wire that the resident thermostat uses to interrupt the operation of the compressor. This thermostat is usually located behind a panel in the top part of the refrigerator section and has a bulb that resides in the freezer. . Your controller should have an on and off range; that is, it should cut the fridge on at, say 61, and cut back off at, say, 60. You'll need some kind of range, thereby giving the compressor some "off time" of more than a couple of minutes. If you don't do this, you will reck the compressor, or it simply won't start. (Refrigeration systems need to equalize so that the compressor motor won't have to start when the pressure is really high. At equal pressure between evaporator and condensor, the motor can start easily.) . You have quite a project ahead of you. I suggest when you get into the nitty gritty of it, enlist your neighborhood MacGyver type. It shouldn't be that hard to pull off this project.

Westinghouse 410l fridge trips new RCD's in fusebox


Tripping an earth leakage would indicate a break down of insulation in the windings of the compressor, the possibility of a short circuit in the wiring system or the defrost element down to earth. I recommend you have a certified technician check it out before you have a fire. If the Hoover is in good condition there is no reason not to replace it. Rate me please.
