I bought a Fridgidair refrigirator (Model#GLRT182SAW4) recently. I placed it in the garage. It tripped the GFIC recepticle every a couple of days. I have to reset the GFIC on the in wall receptical and advanced the timer manually to get the refregirator started again. It run for a coupled day and tripped the GFIC again. I had to start the procedure all over again.
The interval between the tripping appeared random. However, the trippings always happened during defrost cycle.
I have checked teh defrost heater. Its resistance is 65 and looks good to me. I have also confirmed that there is no power to the fan motor (next to the evaporator) during defrost cycle.
