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