The refrigerator keeps tripping the circuit breaker. After I rotate the timer, it will work and then it will trip the breaker. Could it be the timer?
Answer Hello Majid. Does this only happen when the timer is in defrost mode, or when the compressor is trying to start? Thanks.

Freezer is icing up at the back and fridge is warm.
Answer Hello David. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

Answer Hello Greg,
This model usually has a failure of the defrost thermostat 5303917954. The defrost timer is in the area with the controls. To test it, rotate the knob on it until the unit kicks off. The unit should kick back on within about 30 minutes of energizing the defrost heater circuit.
