Your starter to the compressor is defective. Call a tech out it'll cost less than $150.00 and that's if the compressor isn't grounded. If the compressor is grounded will cost about $350-$450 to replace compressor.

Sounds like you compressor has failed. If it is out of warranty the repairs are expensive and not recommended. I fit is still under warranty somebody else pays the major portion of the bill.

Hi, my fridge freezer keeps making the electric trip out. help!!!


Hello,

Try this:
Turn your thermostat as warm as it will go, you are trying to isolate the compressor and keep it from turning on. If your fridge has an "off" position, then turn it off. Reset breaker, plug refrigerator back into the outlet. If the fridge trips while "off", then you are likely looking at a damaged cord / wiring.

If the breaker doesn't trip, unplug the fridge, and move the thermostat to the warmest position possible. Plug fridge back in, If the breaker holds, then you are on right track. Slowly move the thermostat to a cooler setting. You want to just reach the point where the compressor tries to start. If breaker holds here, then you are in good shape so far. It indicates a problem with the defrost heater (if equipped), or the ice maker (if equipped). If the breaker trips as soon as the compressor tries to start, your compressor may be damaged (bad and expensive).

Bissell lift off bagless tripped breaker. Cut


if it overheated, there is a automatic switch in or near the motor that resets automatically...if its cooled and wont start back up??? Then check that your outlet has power to it. if not, reset trhe house breaker and if it does, start hitting garage sales for 5 dollar vacuums....

Eaton Arc Fault Breaker type BRAF tripped. I reset it but lights will not work. Ideas please?


My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.

About 1:00 am this morning our fridge tripped the circuit breaker, it ha never done this before. I reset the breaker and it tripped 5 mins later. I left it unplugged for the rest of the night. I plugged it...


It sounds to me, either you have a bad circuit breaker (the breaker itself); or you have a bad motor or compressor in the fridge. If possible try plugging the fridge into a different outlet. (If you use an extension cord to do this, make sure it is a thick gauge, in order to not cause an increase in amps through the smaller cord.) This should tell you rather quickly if the problem is with the breaker or the fridge. If it does turn out to be the fridge, you will probably find it is cheaper to replace a fan rather than the fridge, but the compressor (including installation) would probably cost more than a new fridge. (depending on how "fancy" it is)
Hope this helps

GARAGE FRIDGE STILL TRIPPING THE GFCI ....WHY?


If your frig is plugged directly into a GFCI, you need to remove the GFCI and replace it with a standard plug. No one should have a GFCi behind a refrigerator.

Refrigerator tripping ground fault circuit


The thing you were "spinning" was the defrost timer, not a circuit breaker. The problem may be you have a shorted defrost heater; It is on a timer that runs it for 30 minutes every 8 hours of compressor use.
