If you have an OHM meter, check from the flat conductors of the plug to the ground section of the plug. Any reading at all indicates a short in the circuit. Most likely place of the short could be the compressor. If you are capable, with the unit unplugged disconnect the leads from the compressor, then see if the breaker trips when you plug it in. If not the problem is the compressor . At ten years old it would be more expedient to get a new refrigerator than to replace the compressor. The warranty is up and you would pay the big bill for the compressor and labor.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig. and the freezer side keeps getting full of frost, and the refrig. side is barely cold, and keeps spoiling food. I've had a tech come out and check things out and...

Either your defrost element or timer is bad or your fridge is low on freon. Frost is a sign of outside air getting in but it can also be a sign of the defrost heating element not kicking in and the defrost timer turns it on for a few minutes each day and a defrost limit keeps it from getting two warm during the defrost cycle. good luck hope this helps
