Question about Refrigerators
My refrigerator keeps popping the reset on the outlet and shutting off. When I try to reset the outlet, sometimes the light comes on but other times the outlet just pops again. I discovered that if I press the button on the outside of a box under the refergerator that if the light is on, the compressor starts. Also, if I press it at the same time as the breaker, it clicks and the breaker resets and the refer starts. I think the compressor switch is the problem but dont know for sure that is what I am monkeying with.
If the unit is on a ground fault outlet move it to a different outlet or change that one out. A refrigerator or freezer is not reccommended to be on a GFI curcuit. Your hot compressor start can be close to 20 amps. That will trip any GFI it would be hooked up to.
