Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Until it trips house safety seem to be working OK. Nothing obviously wrong. The repair guy can't find a fault
The house that you live in might be using ADCI instead of GFCI. The newer protection is ARC FAULT DETECTION CIRCUIT INTERRUPTION. It can sense a SPARK and shut down the circuit.

Testimonial: "The detector was installed (latest model) a few months ago but the fault only showed up now. Thanks for your assistance."
your not supposed to run an appliance on a ground fault circuit because most of the components ground to the body og unit do you have it on a gcfi well here in america anyway

I assume by "earth leakage" you mean it is on a GFI circuit? Some older GFI outlets are sensitive to and do not work well with motors or other inductive loads like your refridgerator compressor. As for the compressor feeling hot, this is usually normal.
If this is a GFI outlet, try replacing it with new unit. If it is a GFI breaker, try replacing that.

Tripping an earth leakage would indicate a break down of insulation in the windings of the compressor, the possibility of a short circuit in the wiring system or the defrost element down to earth. I recommend you have a certified technician check it out before you have a fire. If the Hoover is in good condition there is no reason not to replace it. Rate me please.

(the following is from http://www.kellerstudio.de/repairfaq/sam/micfaq.htm#mictotdo)
The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.
Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.
If those are not the problems, then the main fuse is the most likely suspect for a totally dead microwave.
Remember, while you can do some repairs on you microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, let me know and I will point you in the direction of some good resources.
