My freezer keeps overloading our switch board, whats wrong?


The freezer has a compressor which will draw quite a lot of current in the first half-second when it starts.

Either: Your freezer has a electrical problem and needs to be fixed,

Or: there is already too much drawing on the circuit that you are trying to add the freezer to, and the freezer is more than the circuit breaker will allow.

First try powering the freezer from some other socket on a different circuit (use a long cord), or unplug a few things that are nearby (in most houses, there will be several wall sockets on the same wire in each area of the house).

If the freezer runs fine from a different socket, or when you unplug some other stuff, then the problem is you are overloading the circuit you were originally trying to add it to.

If you can't get the freezer to run on any socket without tripping the circuit breaker then probably the freezer has an electrical fault and best you get a real electrician to check it (safety first!).

After moving to a new home, the freezer keeps tripping the breaker every few days


My first instinct is to ask you, are you plugging this freezer into a GFI outlet, one which has a breaker switch as part of the outlet? If so, that is the culprit and not the freezer, as refrigerators and freezers will often trip this ground fault indicator because water can on occasion reach ground, which causes the breaker to trip on the outlet.

Test this by plugging the freezer into a non GFI outlet for longer than a few days. Nothing is broken and you dont need refrigerator repair service.

Problem on Manitowoc Ice Maker Series 150


if the reed switch is not tripped at the end of the harvest cycle it will shut down. when ice drops it hits a cover with a magnet on the right bottom corner. the ice falling moves the magnet away from a switch and lets the sequence reset and start over.

Freezer Just Stop Working


You should not run your freezer from a strip plug, only from a wall outlet. It is OK for a small spark to occur since the freezer is trying to start the compressor as you plug it in. If there is a big spark that kicks out the circuit breaker if you plug it into a wall socket, then there is a short in the compressor or light circuit in the freezer. A strip plug in probably will not have the capacity to run the freezer. Plug it into the wall socket and try that. If you have a circuit breaker kick out, then it's your appliance. Hope this helps you, Rick
