My fridge keeps tripping the power


Your solution is one of two things.

First is the circuit you have plugged the refrigerator is either over its limit and the breaker is tripping because it is overloaded. In this case you will have to determine what load also share this circuit and eliminate the extra loads or move the cord to another circuit which is not overloaded. Most home circuit are wired with 14 gauge and is rated at 15 amps. When the circuit gets to 15 amp and more, the associated breaker trips to prevent overload.

Second, Your refrigerator may have a short and needs troubleshooting to find the cause. To see if it is a bad circuit try plugging into a circuit via extension cord to circuit in another room receptical. The reason I say another room, when electrical installers wire circuits, you can put several recepticles on the same circuit. If you plug your refrigerator in the same circuit you had it on before then you will get the same problem, your refrigerator tripping again. If your frig trips on a different circuit then troubleshooting the cause will normally require a tech.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Could be anything, bad cord or plug, possible bad appliance bulb causing short (had that happen on another appliance) or the main problem, bad compressor.

My superba refrigerator recently keeps tripping off the power. I tried swithing to a different outlet but it didn't work (same problem). What is causing this?


well usually several plugs are on the same breaker and just because u use a different plug dont mean u r using another breaker try replacing the breaker and see if this cures the problem breakers sometimes get weak and trip when they need replacing but make sure u put in the same size if it still does it then u have something overamping because of being dirty or clogged up around the fridge or behind it or under it make sure its clean all around and try unplugging a couple of things on the outlets and see if it stops tripping

Fridge keeps tripping the circuit breaker


Unless there is a dedicated circuit of 20 amps to the refrigerator this will continue to happen When your refrigerator goes into defrost and other things like lights fans air conditioners are on the same circuit it will have no choice to not trip the breaker. Try this turn the breaker off and how may thing in your house stop working? You need a 20 AMP circuit or this will possibly damage the compressor or weaken the breaker because it has tripped so many time. Thanks, Please rate my solution, I have done this work for 30 years.

When I plug in my refrigerator, it throws my circuit breaker?


You may have a seized compressor, evaporator or condenser fan - have you tried turning it off first, plugging it in and seeing if that will hold? If you open the doors with the fridge off, will the lights still work? Can you hear the compressor start up when you turn the fridge on, or does it trip right then?

Air difusser between freezer and fridge will not stop running


When things like this happen I usually replace the main electronic circuit board which would control the motor operation timing, etc.

Amrican fridge freezer keeps tripping the electric. i changed the fuse and tried running it from a different socket but still it trips. is there something else that could be causing this to happen


if the unit is tripping the electric breaker, then there is a short in the unit. if you know how to use a resistance meter, you can trace your unit.

short could be coming from the power cord itself, check for broken wire and maybe touching the ground or the body of the unit.

next check your compressor. this is the biggest load of your unit. if this is shorted to ground, then it will trip your electric.

be care full on plugging the unit if you are not sure that you found the shorted wire, it might trip again.

if all of those still does not correct your problem, check the mullion heaters. but the connections of these heaters are sometimes very hard to find to check. their are hidden and only technician can sometimes find them.

Bulbs and bottom pcb blew, replaced but still not working


the start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.
