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!).
HI, The reason for the over-pull is due to the unstable conditions located at the main PCB that controls this affected unit. The voltage is not stable, due to the damage located at the PCB(circuit instabilities). Just to be safe, have your local electrician inspect the breaker box for shorts and damage to the appropriate circuit block. If the electrician confirms that the breaker is in good condition; replace the main control board(PCB) that is mounted near the compressor or behind the rear access panel.
I am not familiar with Bosch but I do know that other brands use the defrost heater as a source for power to the compressor while running. If the heater is partially grounded it could cause this problem. If this is okay have your thought that maybe your RCD is going bad... just a thought
