Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
If the unit is tripping the electric breaker, then there is a short in the unit. if you know how to use a resistance meter, you can trace your unit.
short could be coming from the power cord itself, check for broken wire and maybe touching the ground or the body of the unit.
next check your compressor. this is the biggest load of your unit. if this is shorted to ground, then it will trip your electric.
be care full on plugging the unit if you are not sure that you found the shorted wire, it might trip again.
if all of those still does not correct your problem, check the mullion heaters. but the connections of these heaters are sometimes very hard to find to check. their are hidden and only technician can sometimes find them.
