Question about Refrigerators
I have a 1998 Kenmore Side by Side Refrig that keeps blowing the circuit. I have tried several different plugs and they all keep blowing. Can someone explain why the frig keeps blowing the circuit and recommend how this can be corrected? Thanks
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.
