Question about Refrigerators
Every time I insert the power socket into the power switch, my Whirlpool refrigerator trips the circuit breaker and my house's electricity goes for toss.
I tried the refrigerator connection at different points in house but my issue remains as it is. This refrigerator is one and a half year old (Model - Whirlpool - FF 400 Elite).
Pankaj, Do you have a ohm meter? Sounds like you have something shorting back. First take the meter to the cord. On the end of the cord, you should show no continuity from each male prong to the ground prong on the cord itself. If you show continuity, you have something shorting back. Then I would start with the compressor, Unplug the wires going to the overload and relay, make sure the units unpluged and meter the cord again. If it's ok, then the problem is in the overload and relay. Start there and let me know, if it still showing a short, then we will have to go to the controls, heater, and repeat the process until you find the culprit. Catriver.
