What would cause intermitant pop of ground fault. only thing on the line. ground fault has been replaced

Refrigerators are not recommended to be plugged into a GFI outlet. Depending on the age of the fridge there will be spikes in the current the fridge uses at certain times causing the GFI to trip. A GFI outlet is much more sensitive to current than a non GFI outlet that is tied back to the the regular breaker in the electrical panel. Pleazer Appliance...

When my Mark 6 does its job and shocks a cow it pops the GFI that it is plugged in to. How do I fix that?

Replace the GFI with a standard plug. the unit has its own ground return which cause the GFI to trip.

No power to the refrigerator. Plug it in and it pops the GFI

Try plugging into another receptacle,possibly your GFI is defective.Could be a bad compressor, shorted wire, shorted defrost heater. A good tech should be able to diagnose your problem quickly.

When plugged in the gfi pops what could this be?

If you are just popping the gfi, you probably have a leak the is dripping onto a part of the main circuit. If you are tripping a breaker you have a dead short. Both need to be taken care of.

Side by side running all day door left adjar. blew gfi reset but not running is there a reset button for the compressor

It could have popped the gfi plug , when in defrost . It can draw up to 6 amps in defrost . Use an extension cord to another outlet not gfi . If in defrost when popped , after plugged in for a little while (28-32 min) , it should cycle on . I wouldn't leave it permanently on extension cord , but replace that plug behind fridge to a normal plug (not gfi) .

Fridge is popping my GFI switch

refrigerators are not supposed to be plugged into gfi outlets as they can operate normally and still trip the gfi protector. try plugging the unit into an unprotected outlet and it should work fine. incidentally you'll probably have to replace the gfi outlet as it has probably weakend from being used on the refrig.
