Fridge blow fuse. What can be wrong?

There could be a lot of reason but most common reason for unit tripping breaker is bad compressor .
Disconnect compressor and turn breaker back on and if breaker didn't tripped then it's definitely the compressor. If breaker still tripped then there are other issues .Check all electrical wiring because something is grounded

Sometimes IR 30 goes into a strained free wheeling state

Did you change the 3 phase motor out with a single phase motor? A 3 phase motor cannot be made to run on single phase.

3 Phase 7.5 HP air compressor overheat, runs on and off, we found it has no capacitor, what is the correct capacitor needed.

There could be several reasons why your unit is "overheating". Is the motor tripping the circuit breaker ? Is it the motor or the compressor that is overheating? I need more description of the problem. 3 phase motors do not have capacitors. Is the compressor turning the correct direction? Is the supply voltage correct? Is the power cable the correct size? Do you have the correct type and quantity of oil in the compressor?

Freezer & fridge not cooling

If the fan inside freezer and outside and below refrigerator are continuing to run I want you to unplug and pull away from wall. Remove the cover on back near floor so you can reach in and feel the top of compressor. Is it warm, cool or too hot to keep your hand there? If too hot to keep hand on compressor that tells me the compressor is trying to start but cannot. This is not good to leave power on and not try and see if we can get the compressor going. The run capacitor is mounted adjacent to the compressor. It is electrically connected to the compressor circuit to provide the required phase difference between the start and run windings for running the compressor. Capacitor Failures May Be Caused By 1. A Short Circuit - Will cause the start windings to be energized continuously in the start mode. The compressor could start, but the overload protector
will trip, and eventually trip continuously.. Here is a photo showing the=> MSD2756GEW Compressor Components See part 4 in the photo that is the=> 12002784 Relay and Overload Kit I could write all night but if you can get these things checked we will find the reason for the refrigerator not cooling and most likely that set of parts is the reason. I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze

What will cause my compressor to start bogging down and trip the electric motor after reaching 30 to 40 psi? it has fresh oil and air filter. The electric motor also checked out ok.

It sounds like the run capacitor needs to be replaced. If yours is weak or defective the motors run windings will over heat and trip the overload. You can find replacements at "Drillspot". Another issue is using an extension cord that cannot handle the load.

Have a 4horsepower neo plasma split that keeps tripping out the fuse in the meter box.have had air con guy out and he says the 14 amp fuse is not sufficient for this air con even though it has run on it...

Please note your fuse wire must be 2 to 3 times of running amps. Suppose running amps is 6.5, the fuse wire must be minimum 15 and maximum 20 amps. Always choose the maximum.
Other chances for fuse blown;

And in your a/c, If your fuse tripped as soon as compressor starts, check compressor winding with ohms. In between 2 terminal it should be equal in 3 phase compressor. In single phase compressor, SR must be the total of other two.If any huge difference it means winding weak. If any ohms reads between any terminal and grounding it means compressor grounded for which you have to replace compressor.
Hope, it's helpful?

Hi, I have a question about anti-short cycle, can anyone explain what exactly 'anti-short cycle' is? If I am running the air conditioner's compressor with a soft-starter (1-phase and 3-phase), does...

Anti-Short-Cycle Timers - Airotronics timer prevents premature cycling of compressors in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps, thereby reducing nuisance tripping of fuse or circuit breaker.

York 3phase compressor tripping on low currant microprocessor.

If the unit is single phasing this is not good for the compressor. Does the system have a phase monitor? If not I would suggest you put one in to save thousands of dollars on the replacement of the compressor. How is the oil level? I ask because this are not to run themselves out of oil.

Ingersoll rand compressor T30 model 7100

I would wonder A if the wiring was heavey enough to carry that sort of load with out overheating B if the motor is big enough to do it for the same reason( ?what is the duty cycle?) C if the receiver is big enough to allow reasonable time between shut down and start up --- remembering that at start up the motor pulls double the current to start up and if it doesn `thave sufficient time to cool alittle before being called on to do it again and that would prompt the question ,does it have sufficient ventilation? these are all queries that would need addressing before I would try to offer a solution ,one thing is certain ,--there is something wrong
