If random then the compressor has earth leakage when under load. Compressor is faulty. If water flow is disrupted and water filter light comes on for replacement for ice maker/cold water then this can cause an earth leak that will trip the rcd

    When water runs dry and icemaker area freezes solid. Will cause earth leakage and can cause damage to compressor.

What would cause my Maytag MSD2432GRW fridge to trip the breaker? I have narrowed it down to either the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the adaptive defrost. How would I check each of these

It is more than likely your power supply that steps down you your 120V to 24V. This is usually located right rear bottom inside of your fridge but locations vary.

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.

Fridge/freezer keeps tripping

Try to plug into different circuit, if it trips that breaker on the board then the appliance is probably at fault.
I must assume that you have not acquired something plugged into the same circuit as the fridge.

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.

Hi, my fridge freezer keeps making the electric trip out. help!!!


Try this:
Turn your thermostat as warm as it will go, you are trying to isolate the compressor and keep it from turning on. If your fridge has an "off" position, then turn it off. Reset breaker, plug refrigerator back into the outlet. If the fridge trips while "off", then you are likely looking at a damaged cord / wiring.

If the breaker doesn't trip, unplug the fridge, and move the thermostat to the warmest position possible. Plug fridge back in, If the breaker holds, then you are on right track. Slowly move the thermostat to a cooler setting. You want to just reach the point where the compressor tries to start. If breaker holds here, then you are in good shape so far. It indicates a problem with the defrost heater (if equipped), or the ice maker (if equipped). If the breaker trips as soon as the compressor tries to start, your compressor may be damaged (bad and expensive).

Hello, my hotpoint FF187E fridge freezer keeps tripping my electric off, sometimes it will stay on for a couple of days other times it does this straight away, any idears would be appreciated, thanks...

you may have a burned wiring which when wet trips off you electricity. the location may be in front of your unit between the doors if you have a two door fridge. if you have a singole door unit it may be located on lower area of the fridge body which where the water flow down when you have excess water dripping infront of your fridge. those two location are most likely because the wiring installations from thermostat, heater, and ligth are there. ofcourse you have to check first the compressor and it's auxillaries

The main rcd keeps tripping off round about the same time everyday

do you have a fridge with a defrosting cycle? quite often when a fridge goes into defrosting mode it can dump some voltage to earth which trips the RCD. The other possibility is an electric pump turning on doing the same thing. or it could be a trouble with your power source. if you give me more information i could possibly help you more.
