I have a Maytag GC2227 and it is tripping an RCD. If the fridge temperature setting is switched to off the RCD does not trip but as soon as the temperature setting is adjusted the RCD??


Refrigerators are never supposed to be on GFCI devices, they will tend to "leak" a bit of current to ground during defrost and "trip" when there is no real problem... You can test this theory by plugging the machine into a two-prong adapter to see if it still exhibits the same symptom, the only problem I have seen in home refrigerators that can trip a 20 amp circuit break is a seized compressor that is drawing "locked rotor amperage." By design, the start relay/overload should interrupt power before this happens... Hard Start Kit RCO410

After defrosting, red alarm light on, green power light off. Westinghouse Silhouette FR393Q freezer.


Alarm means that the unit is overtemp for a freezer. Your breaker was likely overloaded if the same issue didn't follow the machine to the next outlet... If the alarm stays on when the unit is clearly freezing, you have some type of control problem. That model number is incomplete/incorrect.

Westinghouse RPG423GR fridge is freezing and tripping circuit is this the thermostat? Is a wiring diagram available?


The compressor windings shorting out are usually what trips the breaker. Someone will need to test the windings and if they are defective it will be best to replace the fridge

Our Westinghouse RS662V fridge is tripping the power. Has done it twice in the past 2 months. Any suggestions?


This solution is one possible answer if it applies to you. My fridge did the same and i thought the fridge was dead. The fridges freezer compartment's door was being left open and the freezer would thaw out and produce lots of water which would accumulate in the rear in a container which overflowed causing the fridge to trip the power. Closing the door and drying the rear container solved the problem. There are other causes too but if this applies to you it is worth giving it a try. Good Luck!

Wiring schematic for white-westinghouse window air conditioner/heater selector switch


I'm willing to bet that the heater is grounded. Probably burnt up the original switch, heater wasn't getting power, therefore not tripping the breaker. Now the switch works, heater gets power and immediately trips breaker. Unhook the switch and tape the wires, reset breaker and try in heat and cool. If no problems it's likely the heater.

Westinghouse RJ442 fridge was working now tripping


Is it a GFI that it is tripping. If it is using an extension cord try plugging into a non GFI outlet.

Suddenly tripped off house


Hi akula, 200 ks to a fridgie, LG appliance, you must be in Australia;) Is it the earth leakage circuit breaker operating. If so, then you have a leakage problem to earth from the heater pad(not quite sure what that is, but this problem will need to be repaired. Am doing some research to see if there is anything that can be done without just getting a new fridge. Back to you soon.
