Andrew asked 5 years ago
I accidentally left the freezer door open for about 8 hours yesterday. When I came home, the fridge had no power to it since or had tripped the ground fault outlet it was plugged in to. I let the fridge thaw out for several hours and plugged tried plugging it into the g.f. outlet, but it kept tripped. Other appliances work fine in this outlet including my mini fridge. I then plugged my primary refrigerator into a regular wall socket and now it is working fine. What could explain this issue with the g.f. outlet? It never tripped before this incident.
