Almost definately, there is a wire or more accidently pulled loose while carrying the fridge.Check where the cable enters the fridge and the surrounding area.

Please help my side by side ge fridge freezer is tripping our power I have had it for 2 year we moved houses I left it unplugged for three days in our garage then moved it into the house and plugged it in...


Check to make sure that in the process of moving a "hot" wire under the refrigerator did not come loose and now is contacting a metal part of unit.

U have a classic short circuit which accounts for the breaker popping immediately. It is not a short in the compressor because that would have popped the self resetting clixon and not the house breaker.

Fridge freezer tripping rcd


Ensure it fully dries out before trying it again. Water in the electrics will throw your trip instantly. If it's dry now, and you are having the same problem. check the electrics for a short circuit or earth fault. Usually a compressor earth fault is to blame.

Fridge blowing breaker


Try plugging it in somewhere else with nothing else on that breaker. No extension cords. My air compresser sometimes does the same thing due to a large power draw.

Kitchen Aid range Breaker always tripping ERROR F5:E3


The elements or a hot wire feeding the control switches has been bumped and is grounded. You can probably find it with a thorough visual inspection. Look very close at the wiring and look for something pinched or touching metal.

Fridge not cooling


Hello.
The most common thing that happens while moving a frig is when moving it they put the dolly underneath the condenser fan housing and bend it into the fan causing the compressor to overheat before it has a chance to cool down everything. If this isn't the case then I will send you a list of things to check out. Let me know.

Fridge not cooling


Make sure coils underneath or backside are clean of dirt. Make sure compressor is humming when running. You can tell by moving fridge out and it will be at the back side of the opening on the bottom side of fridge. It will be about the size of a soccer ball. If it has a little of vibration and might be alittle warm to touch. Also open door and make light comes on inside. In newer homes these days they are using ground fault interceptors. Even tho this one is not plugged into one that has the resetable breaker check other walls for one that does have the little red and black push buttons. They sometimes wire some into one ground fault, when that pops, it shuts power to the others. Our house is that way, I have to go to our bathroom and reset it to make the ones in the kitchen work.

Refrigerator tripping ground fault circuit


The thing you were "spinning" was the defrost timer, not a circuit breaker. The problem may be you have a shorted defrost heater; It is on a timer that runs it for 30 minutes every 8 hours of compressor use.
