I have a Kenmore refrigeator Model #106 9738310 that trips the GFI randomly. I do not believe that it is a circuit overload problem, because it will run for about a day and them trip the GFI. Once the Refrigerator sits for a few hours we can again plug it in and it runs fine for about 24 hours before it trips the GFI again. I have tried multiple plugs and the same thing happens. I have looked at the wiring andf everything appears to be intact. We just moved the refrigerator a fews days ago and had no problems with it prior to the move. Can anyone be of help. Thanks

** Kenmore refrigerator trips the GFI randomly. **

Most major home appliance manufactures recommend that their appliances NOT be plugged into a GFI outlet. One example from the Amana web site:

-----

Amana appliances require a properly grounded and polarized outlet. Amana does not recommend the use of ground fault interrupter outlets (GFI) with our appliances. The use of this type of outlet may not allow the appliance to operate properly. Some appliance components could create enough resistance to trip the GFI outlet during normal use.

** We just moved the refrigerator a fews days ago and had no problems with it prior to the move. **

And it has always been plugged into a GFI outlet?

** I have tried multiple plugs and the same thing happens. **

Are they all GFI outlets or something different occurs when you plug it into a 'standard' outlet??
