REFRIGERATOR HAS STOPPED WORKING , NOTHING RUNS, NO LIGHTS NOTHING


If everything is dead the first thing you have to establish is that the unit is receiving electrical power. It is far fetched for every component to go bad at the same time!!!!!!

I have a fisher and paykel fridge freezer model e372b my power kept tripping a few days ago and I didn't know why we switched the power box back on and it tripped again we turned it back on and it tripped...


Check the power cord on the fridge to make sure it is not broken or frayed. There is an electrical short somewhere. Check the recepticle that is used for the fridge by plugging something else in it, such as a lamp, to see if the receptacle has a short in it.

Main residual circuit breaker trips fridge approximately every 12 hours


normal fridge takes 7- 12 amps to start, if after 12 hours it trips i would lean towards a compressor issue. once it heats up the comp. may draw alot of amps causing it to trip. is it the only item on that circut? does it still trip being alone on the circut?

E442 Fridge Was noisy, now trips mains power :(


Sounds like the compressor is grounded out causing the breaker to trip, but it could also be wiring, but if I recall most things in those type of machines reduce down to 12vdc and that wouldn't blow the breaker.

My fridge is tripping the power out in my house. do i need a new motor?


It might not be the motor, it could even be the door switch, but first unplug the fridge, disconnect the wires from the motor, insulate them, switch on and see if your house power trips out. If the house does not trip out it is the motor. It is still trips out, look at the wires to the switch and the light and also the thermostat. Good luck and remember to unplug the wall socket whenever checking any circuit.

Fridge went to gas when power went out. when power came back on fridge didn't swith back to power. worked until gas went out. is there a problem with a switch somewhere or does the unit need replacing


Many RVs / Coaches have the fridge power receptacle protected by a GFCI outlet that is located in the kitchen, perhaps bathroom, areas. Check to see if this outlet is tripped. If it isn't, try plugging a lamp into the fridge outlet to see if it works.

If it does, then the control board may have gotten spiked by a converter surge while power was being lost (also a sign of a failing converter). You can also measure the resistance of the heating element with a multimeter. You should see about 44 ohms (give or take 10%). If the heating element is out of tolerance, the fridge won't use it, but it should throw a code indicating a problem.

If the outlet doesn't work, look for other dead outlets in your coach. Double check GFCI outlets, make sure they are not tripped. And, of course, make sure that all your breakers are turned on, and not partially tripped as well.

RM4236 tripping site electrics


Paul;
Are you tripping the shore power pedestal? If so did you unplug the fridge and try it. The park pedestal breaker should be at least 30 amp and I can not believe the fridge would trip the site breaker before it tripped the breaker in your caravan. Are you sure it is the fridge? Your fridge is an old eletrolux dometic and I can not find the manual in my files. You may call Dometic and get a manual but That will not help you much. I will be more than glad to resolve your problem but I need more info.
The Dometic# is 800 366 3842. Prompt to tech dept.

Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker


get an inexpensive clamp amp meter (Harbor Freight has them). Turn off power to the plug. Remove plug from wall but do not disconnet wires. turn fridge OFF. plug the unit in the recept. turn on the power. set the meter for the higest reading (amps) & clamp it around the black wire. turn the fridge ON & observe start up current & the "run" current. If the fridge is within limits on the data plate the problem is in the wiring circuit, maybe a loose connection either @ the plug or the breaker. if there are several plugs in the circuit, the problem could be in one of them. In addition, if there is a gfi plug in this circuit, it could be faulty also.

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.
