Trips power when the defrost mode turns on

There is a heating coil in the freezer that comes on to assist in defrosting. It is most likely shorted. When it comes on to defrost it trips the breaker.

Trips power when timer clicks to defrost mode

is possible that your defrost element is shorting out to the body of your refrigerator it's also possible that you have too many items plugged into the same circuit as the refrigerator and when the defrost comes on it draws a lot more amperage .and trips the breaker

Display panel on fridge door display flashing from 4 to 7 and beeps 5 times.

the blast chiller fan has prob failed
also check the thermal fuse on the heating elements that are around the chiller elements {used to defrost the chiller section}
and if there is also one on the fan check it
the beeping is prob an error code
you can consult the manual or phone the makers support number
to get more info on the exact error detected
usually there is some reset error like hold in the button etc and power on then let it go
more any more appliances have this
and if you dont know to reset
even if the error is cleared the unit will remain in this error mode
till reset again check the manual

New defrost timer on fridge keeps tripping circuit breaker


The problem is the defrost timer you just replace on your refrigerator, you will need to check the ratings on the broken defrost timer to ensure it matches the ratings on the present defrost heater on your refrigerator, beside, you will need to test the continuity on your present defrost heater to see if the voltage rating is ok, because, if it can be tripping the breaker off while it kicks into defrost mode signify that the present defrost heater is not compatible with your refrigerator, it is either it is not well wired or fixed, and if it is, then, it means the defrost timer voltage rating is low compare to the former, you will need to get exact specification as the the broken one.

Take care.

Are you talking about resetting the defrost timer? I would check to see if the defrost heater is shorted out tripping the breaker when it goes into defrost mode.

Kenmore Refrigerator Model 25377132791, freezer builds ice

your defrost heater isn't working .....could be that its burnt out or not getting supply from the defrost timer or it could be simply that its cracked since many are made of lime glass and when ice falls on it durning defrost cycles it cracks the glass .... to fix it , defrost the unit and take out the screws at the back ... there you will see a coil of aluminium and at the bottom of it you should see the heating element ... there are two wires coming out of it ,one on either sides ....its normally bout a foot or so depending on the size of the fridge......

Not working

Drain is stopped up or the refrigerator is not defrosting. Look inside the fresh food compartment near the control panel or below control panel for a small hole that you can put a pencil in and turn the defrost timer clockwise until refrigerator stops and remain stopped for about 20 minutes. Need also after you do this let me know so we can go from here, Thanks Sea Breeze

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.
