Question about GE Freezers
I have a refrigerator running on a 15amp breaker with no problem. When I plug in a separate freezer on the same circuit, the breaker trips after a while. Can I just replace the 15amp breaker with a 20amp breaker to solve the problem? Thanks.
Take a look at the model number plate,somewhere the amps should be listed.
Add up the total for both freezers.One may be 8 amps the other 10.
So a 20 amp will work.Do not be more then 10 % over the total.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I appreciate the prompt, professional, and helpful response."
If you're asking "Can I make this change myself?" and if you're in the US, then the answer is categorically NO.
The law is that a licensed electrician has to make any kind of change to the breaker panel.
The reason behind that law is that the wiring inside the house may be safe at 15A, but may pose a fire hazard at 20A.
If you're asking "Can I hire an electrician to make this change?" then you're absolutely correct -- once he/she has inspected the wiring to make sure it can handle the load, it's a simple change at the breaker panel and you can run both appliances on the same circuit.
