We unplugged our upright freezer in order to defrost. After cleaning & plugged it back in, the outlet keeps tripping. Any suggestions on what we did to cause this?

Compressor shorting. loose wire grounding out. compressor relay loose or damaged. or bad breaker in your circuit panel, also make sure it's a 20 AMP breaker.

I have a automatic defrost Upright freezer that


leave it for a few hours, then try switching on again. You have overheated the compressor, possibly siezed it. In future, if you unplug a fridge or freezer, allow at least 30 mins before plugging back in.

Inhave just reurned from a short holiday and found My Miele f1313s freezer has the alarm light flashing. Thoughts?


Make sure you have enough amps in the outlet its plugged into. The kitchen outlet might of had more amps than the garage outlet. Also, try unplugging it for a few seconds then plug it back it which might reset it.

Try plugging something else in the outlet. A lamp would work to make sure you did not trip a circut breaker when you plugged back in after defrost.

I moved my upright freezer so I unplugged it , moved it and plugged it back in and it stopped working. I left it unplugged overnight, plugged it back in, same result. Any suggestions?


Maybe it is in the middle of a 21 minute defrost cycle? Is the fan running? Sometimes the defrost timer gets hung in defrost. If that is fine I would see if 120 volts is getting to the relay on the compressor. Sometimes an older temp control will die if fiddled with. Did you turn it before moving the freezer? Those are some things I would check. Sometimes wires get yanked out of place when you move an appliance so check that as well. Post your model number and I might have a service manual you can download OR just go to my website and find one HERE

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.

Is it a self defrosting? Or not? And how did you defrost it?If you scraped and chipped the ice away, you may have poked a hole in the evaporator and the refrigerant (freon) leaked out.

Delfield freezer 6151-S keeps tripping GFCI


Try it in a normal plug. Freezers and refridgerators just pull too much to be used on a GFCI. The more a GFCI is used the eaiser it trips.

Kenmore freezer


Try cleaning out the drain opening with a pipe cleaner. Or use a turkey baster and force hot water into the drain. Rinse with a mild bleach solution to kill any mold. Another solution is to unplug the unit and let it sit for a couple of days to defrost completely. Sometimes during the humid summer the system just gets over burdened and doesn't defrost completely. This gets progressivly worse until you get this problem.
