This is tripping a GFI breaker ?
It was but after tearing through everything it stopped. I have it all back together now except the Auto Ice Maker, and I have the PTC/Overload out right now.
It's not plugged directing into the GFI, it's trips the circuit. I had tried it on other sockets with the same results. Each circuit in my house has a GFI somewhere. Like I said though, it runs now but the compressor is not kicking in and the Overload gets very hot.
At least 15 years old. It sat in storage for 9 years and we got it out 6 years ago so it had very little use until now.
Would this mount somewhere in place of the circuit that is already there? The PTC/Overload?
The 3 in 1 did not fix the problem. Even though the continuity checks were good, it has to be the bearings.I can hear the compressor start to spin just before it trips the overload. It was a waste of a lot of money, and food.
