Frigidaire upright freezer ice forming in bottom and leaking not freezing ice cream


This does not sound good because the breakers tripping may indicate a compressor windings short. Have someone do the test below,
Unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel that covers the compressor. There should be 3 wires going inside the cover of the compressor. Mark all 3 and mark their location so if compressor is OK you can put them back in same order. The plastic cover may snap on and you may need to squeeze the sides to unlock the cover and sometimes there is a metal clip holding the cover in place. Remove the cover. May look hard but it's simple. There will be three connections under the cover and 2 will go through the start relay. Unplug them leaving the three prongs exposed. They may be marked R =Run, S=Start and C=Common. Set your meter on continuity and then begin by testing 2 at a time until you have checked S to R and R to C an C to S and S to R again. You should get a reading all the way around. If no reading between any of the pairs as you go around you should get no reading between any two the compressor has an open winding and is defective. Then if it passes that test then touch one probe to R and the other to the copper pipes or clean metal on outside of compressor, then S to metal outside and C to metal outside. If you get a reading this way even just a little. The compressor is a burnout. Then let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

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.

We have the Delfield XL 6000 freezer. We have been having problems with the breaker keep fliping off and causing to loose food. We have had Delfield technicians to come out on several occasion and they...


Ok ,
Does it trip all the time now,or only after running a while.?

If it trips right when you reset breaker with machine OFF, have the wiring checked for a dead short to ground up to the thermostat.

If it trips after running ,as it starts or intermittently there's a dead short to ground that could be any where.

You can simulate what is going on by doing this check.
Unplug machine.
Using an ohm meter,set to ohms, place a test lead on the ground prong(round one) .Place the other test lead to one of the remaining prongs.If there is any reading youv'e got a short. Try the other prong as well
However, if you get no reading there still could be an intermittent short .


Another thing to check. It might not be the machine at all.

Sometimes,if your wall recepticle is worn or old it can heat up causing circuit breaker trip.
Make sure there are no extention cords involved.
If you're on a 15 amp circuit ,you might want to upgrade to 20

I have a 20 cf upright GE freezer that isn't


it may be froze up, and require a defrosting. use a portable fan to speed up this process , also make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working, with a little work and a zoom spout oiler, or some light motor oil, the motor can be sparked back to life.. freeze ups are common with the high humidity we are having these days.. jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood Florida

My freezer is not working. The light on the front is not on. Does this mean that either the switch with light is not working or the power cord is not working?


check first the convenience outlet or the main breaker reset if trip off or replace together the cord test it the continuity using ohmmeter also check the over load protector of the compressor replace if busted. also check the bulb if busted replace it.

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.

No power while plugged


It probably has a circuit breaker located on the bottom of the fridge, behind the front filter. Also try looking inside the refridgerator side at the top. It may be red colored to indicate it is safety-related. Just push it in - but don't be surprised if it trips again.

WARNING: RESET ONLY ONCE TO AVOID A FIRE OR ELECTROCUTION SITUATION.

You may have an internal problem, in which case the freezer's circuit breaker is your best friend!

Note that the self-defrosting freezers have a timer that shuts them off periodically so they can defrost. Sometimes the timer does the defrosting in the middle of the day, giving the appearance of a failure. This could be your problem.

Everything works fine, except when the compressor kicks in the panel breaker trips.


Most likely a short in the compressor electrical components (relay, overload,capacitor) Supco makes a 3 in 1 that you could use. If this works fine, if not "bad compressor".
