Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore refrigerator that I keep as a second fridge out in the garage. It worked great then I unplugged it and didn't use it for a year. Now I want to start using it and it will run and start to cool and a few hours later I will check it and it has tripped the breaker I have tried other outlets and get the same results. The outlet is the same one it was plugged into originally

We had same problem with different fridge. Is the fridge cooling things? When ours did that we needed to replace the relay overload start capacitor it's called a three in one. It acts like a giant battery to give your compressor a n extra boost to get started runs about 25 bucks relatively easy fix only has three wires to connect

unplug the fridge,remove the electrical cover on the compressor to see if any wires are burnt off.you may have a defective start relay,wire off or compressor seized,that age not cost wise to replace compressor

Refrigerators are not designed to run on a GFCI. Try a heavy duty extension cord to the fridge from a outlet that is not GFCI protected. If it still trips you probably have a short circuit in the compressor.

Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

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. Thanks, Sea Breeze
