Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
The issue is the GFI itself, or I should say a refrigerator is not made to be run off a GFI breaker. This may have worked okay for a while but because these draw so many amps when starting and running this weakens the GFI breaker and this will start tripping what you need to do is get this off the GFI . try it in another plug if you need to use an extension cord to do that make sure it's an appliance extension cord and not one of the small extension cords , it must be an appliance cord , running a refrigerator on a running a refrigerator on a GFI i is bad in two ways. One it weakens the GFI and two it can damage the refrigerator compressor , I hope this information is useful,the only thing I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings.
