Question about U-Line Uline Origins Series Refrigerator/Ice Maker Manual Defrost-COMBO29A

My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker suddenly trips GFI

My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker combo unit has worked fine for 4 years. It just started tripping the GFI circuit (it is installed in a wet bar set up which is the reason for the GFI in this location.) I read on another post a recommendation to just remove the GFI circuit. But that was an RV. Should this be safe in my home as well? Is there something that could have suddenly failed on the Uline unit that could be causing the problem that I need to have fixed before using it?

Thanks for your help.

I here this alot. If you have a compressor on a gfi the compressor after awhile would trip it. The compressor start amps is usually higher than the gfi is rated. So you have 2 choices. Replace the GFI and try to find one with higher amp ratings. Or install a normal outlet for your unit. Your code will usually call for a gfi, If it does then replace with a new gfi.
To explain the start amps on a compressor depending on your model could be 10 amps. This is for a split second. However the gfi can become week after time. You can also try to plug the unit into a normal outlet to make sure everything is good on the unit. I believe it is the gfi

GE UNDER COUNTER ICEMAKER HAS BEEN GREAT FOR THREE YEARS, NOW POPS THE GFI DURING CYCLE. TECH SAYS IT SHOULD NOT BE ON GFI CIRCUIT.WHY IS SO AFTER THREE YEARS/


Good chance your Gfi is on verge of failure I had one, took long time for me, yes me to figure it out. Replacement may solve problem. Double check, have you added other appliances on the same circuit? GFI will pop when other appliances are on the same circuit. For example two coffee makers on same time same GFI and similar issues. Otherwise may have a problem with the ice maker voltage leaking somewhere. If GFI replacement doesn't help. Do you still have warranty on Icemaker? If so follow that. If not contact Ge anyway. Recalls maybe "hidden".

Uline under the counter icemaker not making ice. Fed from RO water and had filters replaced to help but didnt. All is running fine, but not making ice. Dups one tray every 12 hours then stops


Is the condenser fan running? Is the condenser clean? (condenser is the "radiator like" coil outside of the ice box. It cools the hot refrigerant.

Frigidaire GLRS264ZA refrigerator keeps blowing GFI circuit


The fan and defrost heater are run off the same relay on the board. When on defrost, the fan stops. when the fan starts, the defrost heater is switched off, Sounds like the neutral to the board may be shorting. If you have the ability, try powering the evaporator fan from the compressor relay, disconnecting from the board entirely. To see if this will work, just take a temporary wire to the fan when disconnected and see if it trips while running.

ULine CLR2160S00 was making ice then the icemaking started to slow then none at all had refrigerant replaced last year and everything else seems to be working fine,,, just no ice


Does the ice maker get water? Could the fill line be blocked? I found on my freezer ice had formed at the end of the tube and once I removed the ice it has worked fine since.

I have an U-line combo 75A and the ice maker(part number 400) has started overfilling. When water enters the ice maker, it runs out the overflow hole. Any suggestions?


few thing can happen, bad thermostat it caused the ice maker stuck in harvest cycle, short in ice maker defrost heater, bad water valve switch or the overflow hole drilled to low, it should be 1/4 inch below the top, I seen some of them drilled 1/2 inch below and it caused water leak.

Uline combo unit. Condensor fan will not run and


You just answered your question. If no fan is running then the compressor will overheat and the compressor goes off on overload. Do you have the evaporator fan running? If yes then replace the condensor fan. Both fans will run at the same time. If the evap fan is not running then the unit must be in defrost. Since its a hotgas defrost the compressor will run.
Hope this helps

You're not alone.  Same problem here.  Breakaway power cord on my Waring deep frier burnt to a crisp.  Don't known about you, but I'll never buy Waring products again.
