"REC" means recovery. this is way the display shows as part of the defrost cycle. Look for a short in the heaters or some of the wiring and/or devices as part of the defrost circuit. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Freezer trips breaker


Try turning the temp control to off. Plug the freezer in for an hour and then turn the temp control down to start the cooling.

Freezer trips breaker


If it is tripping the breaker when the unit is in defrost this is will not be the capacitor. You could have a heater or defrost thermostat issue. Please contact a professional for a full diagnosis.

When I plug the freezer into the outlet, the GFI pops, what is wrong?


To be short, the only thing in the machine that really has the capability of causing that is the compressor. Its got a floating short in and when it makes contact it trips the outlet/breaker. Check for any exposed wires just to be sure but I'm pretty certain that the compressor is the culprit and either it or the machine needs to be replaced

Freezer keeps tripping breaker


Possible that it is draining a larger current and so it trips the breaker. Check if the capacitor to the motor is faulty, replace if you find it on test to consume more current and low charge.
Also the motor can be checked , the wiring to the freezer specially the GROUND connection as any leak can also trip the circuit.

Once in awhile, Circuit Breaker Trips


Your compressor start relay contacts may be getting loose or worn, resulting in a delayed start on the compressor.
If the start device includes a capacitor, it could be getting weak.
GFCI are not good receptacles for devices with high starting torque.

Trips breaker when door opens


Sounds like the switch or wiring around the switch is shorting out. Most light switches pop out with a screw driver.Some older units might have a small heater in the door around the seal but usually not See if there is any wiring going through the hinge pin. If so you can safely cut and tape this off. The door might sweat a little but this is a solution. Please deal with this as it could be a shock hazard. You might not notice if you touch and are wearing dry shoes, but a barefoot child could be killed.
