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.

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.
