With the compressor running, open the freezer and listen if the fan is running. If it is not, replace it. Most likely, this is your problem.

If it is running, turn off the refrigerator. Remove the rear panel from the freezer. Inspect the coils. If they are covered in ice, let them thaw completely. This ice will prevent the freezer and consequently, the refrigerator from getting cold.

If the fan works and the freezer coils are not cold, then I am afraid it is time for another refrigerator.

Upright freezer trips circuit after moving across room


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.

AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker


What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

Fridge freezer shorting out electrics


The cause of this situation could simply be an overloaded circuit. Homes are built with dedicated circuit for fridge only now because of this. If you notice power outage in other rooms or other appliances in kitchen then the circuit affected,I.E. other outlets affected need the load lightened. If it is a dedicated circuit then could be faulty breaker or possibly altered wiring could be cause.These have to be ruled out before you will know for sure. If it isn,t dedicated outlet for fridge only, just plugging in a light could overload loaded circuit.

Amana sxd524v fridge-freezer tripped out the power


Hi, you can check if there is a fanmotor on the condenser section and make sure that it is working. Second, you can try replacing the starter relay which you will find in the connection area of the compressor. If this does not work, I am afraid you would have to have the compressor replaced.

Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker


Your fridge should draw no more than 5amp. Presuming your breaker is at least 15amp there's a problem. Move to a different circuit first. If the condition persists check the start relay on the compressor. I have a suspicion the circuit may have another item you are not aware of.

Fridge not working


First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. If that doesn't work, read on.

Second, check to see if there is power getting to the refrigerator. To do that, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the refrigerator is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If the fuses or breakers aren't the problem, contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it still seems to be stopped, there may be a problem in one or more of these:

  • Wiring


  • Thermostat


  • Defrost timer


  • Compressor


  • Overload and/or relay


If you are unable to troubleshoot the problem from here, you may need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

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.
