My 1997 Whirlpool two door refrigerator, model number ED25PQXDW03, has started tripping the GFCI breaker on the electrical outlet it’s plugged into (in the garage) after running for a while. It’s been in the garage for about 5 months now and it just started doing this last week. The breaker is always tripped when the defrost timer is in defrost mode. During troubleshooting via YouTube the defrost thermometer failed the ice water ohm meter test so I replaced it. I also checked the heating element while I was in there and it passed the continuity test I did with the ohm meter. I decided to do a mini rebuild on my refrigerator while I had it apart and the following items have also been replaced as well: the overload and relay for the compressor, the cold control (old one had some black powder under it) and the defrost timer. The underside grill was cleaned out of all dust with a grill brush I bought. Everything was running fine and the unit was cooling down when I went to bed last night. This morning when I got up the GFCI was tripped (and the timer was in defrost). I tried to reset the fuse and it kept popping. When I turned the timer out of defrost the fuse could be rest and the refrigerator started running again. I read in another Q&A for a different model refrigerator the GFCI its self could be the problem (with nuisance tripping). Is that true with my model as well? I can change out the electrical outlet and change the fuse in the fuse box if need be. Thank you, I’ve learned allot about refrigerators during this.

I bought part 2323198 defrost heater and watched video. My model is different than that of one in video. The bottom rails are not removable. How can I get the heater pan out to remove the defrost heater? Please help. I've been without refrigerator for about 3 weeks now.

Latest Questions

My refrigerator trip the GFI breaker after running for a several hours. If I reset the GFI and turn the defrost timer until it clicks, the refrigerator begins to run again. Could it be a shorted defrost timer or a shorted heater element? What's the easiest way to troubleshoot. Please help.

Mine is definetly frosting the rear panel in freezer. The bi metal is continuously open and will not close when cold so I know it is bad. When that circuit is open I am getting 78 volts to the plugs for the heater. When I close that circuit by putting the bimetal leads together the voltage to the heater leads drops to 17volts. In either situation the heater will not get warm. Are those the proper voltages and should the heater be getting warm? Also is there a timer or programer of some sort involved? Thanks for your help.

I tested the defrost heater, 20 ohms however would not give me a continuity alarm on my meter and tested the defrost thermostat, it seems to be good. Any ideas what to test next. It seems to to be the common problem, freezer is normal and refrigerator is a little warm. Also is there a way to start a manual defrost. Thanks for the help.
