HI, The reason for the over-pull is due to the unstable conditions located at the main PCB that controls this affected unit. The voltage is not stable, due to the damage located at the PCB(circuit instabilities). Just to be safe, have your local electrician inspect the breaker box for shorts and damage to the appropriate circuit block. If the electrician confirms that the breaker is in good condition; replace the main control board(PCB) that is mounted near the compressor or behind the rear access panel.

My Whirlpool Intergrated Freezer AFB 823/3 trip The Earth Leakage CB on the house Fuse board!!


This one requires more information. If the breaker trips randomly, then I say there is grounding problem between the plug and the freezer itself. I know the UK has a very large plug and it requires a serious connection into the wall. I would check and make sure you have a good ground on the box itself. You may have to removed the back and look at the connections If you have a V-OHM meter you can verify the ground through different parts of the freezer. If this never happen before and you just bought this freezer I would replace the breaker with a new one. The breaker maybe damaged and sensitive to heat from the current draw of the freezer. Also make sure it is the correct ampere required to run the freezer.

After moving to a new home, the freezer keeps tripping the breaker every few days


My first instinct is to ask you, are you plugging this freezer into a GFI outlet, one which has a breaker switch as part of the outlet? If so, that is the culprit and not the freezer, as refrigerators and freezers will often trip this ground fault indicator because water can on occasion reach ground, which causes the breaker to trip on the outlet.

Test this by plugging the freezer into a non GFI outlet for longer than a few days. Nothing is broken and you dont need refrigerator repair service.

Freezer not working


Hi,
  • Make sure the freezer is plugged in
  • Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker
  • Test the power outlet for voltage
  • Inspect the electrical cord for damage
  • Eliminate use of an extension cord, if any is being used
  • Check the outage votageIf power is reaching the electrical outlet, trace the freezer wiring and test components as you go. Either there is a short, which must be located and repaired, or the freezer has sustained electrical damage.
Thanks.

Delfield freezer 6151-S keeps tripping GFCI


Try it in a normal plug. Freezers and refridgerators just pull too much to be used on a GFCI. The more a GFCI is used the eaiser it trips.
