Question about Amana Refrigerators
Sorry to say that the most likely cause of this problem is a bad compressor. Many Amana's have the same problem. In dealing with these units I find that will run for a while then have trouble starting up. In your case you are using a ground fault circuit and the extra current draw is causing the house breaker to trip, although most manufactures suggest that you don't use that type of circuit. The only real way to correct the problem is to replace the compressor, or get another refrigerator. The compressor replacement should be done by a qualified technician.

Many thanks for your response...I had originally come to the same conclusion. However, since my last post I have removed the RDC from my main circuit board and replaced with a double pole switch....the fridge now appears to work fine and none of the MCBs trip...keeping my fingers crossed!
Hope this may help others with the same problem as the switch cost £10 and was replaced in 20mins...rather less than a compresor or fnew ridge which was my immediate thought
