If this is a new problem that suddenly occurred, then trust the fuse box...the frig has a problem. Most likely a compressor motor that has been electrically damaged...could have been power surges from utility or lightening or unknown. It also could be a wiring problem in the house...mice have been known to chew through wire insulation...they feel the warm wires and are fooled into believing the wire is a live food source and start chewing. A test of this wire problem is to remove the frig and plug in something that will demand close to the same current...(should also contain a motor)...read the frig's label on back of unit.

My Whirlpool refrigerator stopped working two days ago. Fuse box says half the kitchen outlets share that breaker. They don't work either. Fuse? Help????

Yes, Unplug everything, reset the breaker or replace the fuse. Turn items on one at a time, starting with the fridge. Whichever one trips the breaker has a ground fault and needs investigation and repair.

The tumble drier operates correctly but after a short time (eg 5 minutes) it trips out the fuse box and cuts out ?

you obviously have a short somewhere in the machine, Or its overheating due to bad venting, bad blower flow etc, it should not blow or trip ur breaker box though? has anyone bypassed any of the thermal fuses? I suspect u may have a short in the heater element broken wires touching metal and causing the fuse to trip

I have a fisher and paykel fridge freezer model e372b my power kept tripping a few days ago and I didn't know why we switched the power box back on and it tripped again we turned it back on and it tripped...

Check the power cord on the fridge to make sure it is not broken or frayed. There is an electrical short somewhere. Check the recepticle that is used for the fridge by plugging something else in it, such as a lamp, to see if the receptacle has a short in it.

Circuit breaker tripping

Sounds like the electric motor in the fridge may have shorted out some of the windings which is causing it to draw more current. You should get one of those clamp on amp meters to see how much current it is drawing when it first kicks on.

Hi, my fridge freezer keeps making the electric trip out. help!!!

Hello,

Try this:
Turn your thermostat as warm as it will go, you are trying to isolate the compressor and keep it from turning on. If your fridge has an "off" position, then turn it off. Reset breaker, plug refrigerator back into the outlet. If the fridge trips while "off", then you are likely looking at a damaged cord / wiring.

If the breaker doesn't trip, unplug the fridge, and move the thermostat to the warmest position possible. Plug fridge back in, If the breaker holds, then you are on right track. Slowly move the thermostat to a cooler setting. You want to just reach the point where the compressor tries to start. If breaker holds here, then you are in good shape so far. It indicates a problem with the defrost heater (if equipped), or the ice maker (if equipped). If the breaker trips as soon as the compressor tries to start, your compressor may be damaged (bad and expensive).

Everytime I plug in the power cord, it trips the breaker.

Refrigerators are not designed to run on a GFCI. Try a heavy duty extension cord to the fridge from a outlet that is not GFCI protected. If it still trips you probably have a short circuit in the compressor.
