The other half scored a fridge off a friend today. Great So I went and borrowed a mates ute and off her and I go. It looked brand new and it was cheap. All good. So I only had her and her friend to help me get it onto the back of the ute. Had half a hernia but got it on and secured in the upright position. Got home and things started to go down hill. First I tell Fi FI to get out and tell me when I am almost at the garage door. Only a girl would stand at the back of a ute right in the middle where the fridge is so I cant see her and wave me back. It's a steep drive and a diesel ute so I could not hear her. Anyway I got it off and she wants to start loading all the stuff from our fridge into it. I tell her no you cant do that with fridges. It's been jiggling around in the back of the ute. It was never laid down but it was at an angle when we put it on and took it off for a moment. So I say you have to leave it for a couple of hours, or better still over night. She frowns ... as they do and I go have a shower. I get out of the shower and go into the kitch to get something to eat. Yup you guessed it. She has the old fridge out and has pushed the new one in it's place and is loading the food into it. AND IT'S TURNED ON. She is all smug and ha ha look it works. Which it was. I eat humble pie and say sorry I was always told to leave them for a few hours if not over night. Three hours later we are eating dinner and pffffht. The telly and everything else plugged into a power point goes off. I go out and hit the trip and nothing. It wont even go back. It's like the trip is farked. mmmm I go back in and unplug the new fridge and go back out and hit the trip and it works fine and everything comes back on. I plugged the fridge in and zap its all off again. WTF. The friend says it worked fine. Or was last Saturday when they got their new one and unplugged it. Anyone got any clues??? I turned the fridge and freezer off and replugged it in. Like inside the fridge. All good. The lights in the fridge work. Soon as I turn it on inside the fridge it throws the breaker. I pulled the cover off the wiring and it all looks ok. It's dry and no dust. There is no loose wires and there is no smell. The relay is plugged in and seems ok from the outside.
