Does it run long or on and off. It could be a bad cord, try a diffrent outlet.

Disconnect the power cord wires on the fridge side after you unplug the cord....for continuity on each wire.

No power to wall unit


Have you tried plugging anything else in?

Also does the cord have a GFI breaker on it, or is the outlet a GFI outlet, if those are tripped it will keep power from going to the unit. If they tripped more then likely they got wet, or there is a short circuit.

Otherwise if all that is good circuit breaker would be next to check.

I have a question on Coleman AC


First of all, an extension cord and GFI receptacle to run an AC unit will almost always blow either GFI or circuit breaker or both due to large current draw from AC unit. If an extension cord needs to be used, keep it as short as possible, and use the heavier gauge that is approved for AC use. What happens when you use an extension cord, is the voltage drop that will happen by the time the AC gets power. With any voltage drop, the amperage draw increases, so a 15 amp circuit breaker will most likely trip. Nowadays, all AC units are wired with a minimum 12 gauge wire rated for 20 amps.
You say nothing is happening now, is that to say that the fan only mode doesn't work on the AC unit either?

Two possibilities:

There is leakage in the internal wiring to the safety ground OR the unit is generating a transient current in the ground that trips the GFI. This is NOT uncommon for some motor driven appliances.

AS A test, put a ground isolator (3 wire to 2 wire plug adapter) on the cord before plugging in.

IF that seems to prevent the trips, then use an OHMMETER to test the resistance from each of the power wires to the Ground pin. It should be near infinite resistance. IF NOT, then there is leakage in the unit, PROBABLY contamination that is causing the electrical leakage current and the unit should be serviced.

Should the ground isolator appear to fix the problem, this means that this device CANNOT be operated from that type GFI due to transients it creates. You can try a new GFI that might be less sensitive OR put a line filter in the power cord.

My 48" Viking Range top trips the GFI


One leg of the power is "dead shorted" to ground. Use a Multimeter and start looking/testing to determine which component is bad.

You're not alone.  Same problem here.  Breakaway power cord on my Waring deep frier burnt to a crisp.  Don't known about you, but I'll never buy Waring products again.
