Hoping someone can give me some insight before I call a repair tech. Had this fridge in the house for the past 5 years no issue. Wife wanted a new fridge so we moved this one into the garage. We had a small freezer initially in the garage and it was replaced with this Samsung. After a few minutes, the breaker trips. Tried plugging it into another outlet via extension cord, same thing happens. Tried a few other outlets with the same result. Thought maybe it should go on its own dedicated outlet so had an electrician come out and install a GFCI outlet and breaker thinking if it was the only thing plugged in that it should be fine. Nope, a few mins later the new breaker tripped. I know its got to be the Samsung because we had a small Kenmore freezer out in the garage that we swapped out for the Samsung. We plugged the Kenmore freezer in all the different plugs via extension cord and no issues what so ever. I have a feeling its the compressor and I see it has a 10 year parts warranty but cant find the receipt. Sucks that it was working fine till i moved it 25 feet then now this. Fridge is a little over 5 years old. Appreciate any help, thanks!
I have the same issue with model RF28R7201SR. I've had the fridge for several months with no problems, but changed to new GFCI's during a remodel and now they're tripping after a several minutes, I assume it's when the compressor starts. I've had to use a non-GFCI by extension cord to keep it running. So far my electrician is stumped for an answer.
Hi there. Thank you for replying. The house is only 3 years old and it worked fine in the house and my electrician is stumped as well. I'm going to see if I can find a non-GFCi outlet that I can try plugging the refridgerator into and see what happens I guess
