Safety is not an issue, the problem you may have, depending on the surge protector, is that when the compressor starts up the amps drawn from the circuit is very high which could cause the surge protector to trip, then the power would be shut off to the refrigerator,NOT A GOOD THING!
Good luck !

It has a clogged drain tube and bottom trays is already full.
De-clogged it using a solid wire, match enough to penetrate the drain tube.
Insert solid wire slowly to the drain tube, back and forth.

Regularly check drain tube for clogged and tray for full water.
Good luck.

Hi,

This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

Can I plug my freezer into a surge protector


i know where your going and its a good thought
read your compressor, it will label the start up amp,
it may even be on the model label
it will give you the rated amps and the start up amps
this is current draw to run
as well as start up a stopped motor
depending on the age
most units use about
short of that use a 3x method
if it has the run amp x3 is startup
then read your surge protector if its rated higher than the amps needed to start the unit
then you should be fine
i will say most SP are rated at 15amps
my freezer is rated at 18amperes

The alarm keeps going off. Food is frozen fine just alarm


That alarm is there for a reason. Grab your owner's manual and see the different things it can mean. If the gas is getting low, that could be it, and you'll want to solve it as early as you can.

Sometimes a power surge or brown out can make that alarm go off. Try unplugging it for 5 minutes.

When plugged, it shorts the surge protector and outlets.


I noticed that my refrigerator, kenmore freezer2_bing.gif, and stove were all not on. This has not ever been a problem before, so I unplugged the surge protector and reset the outlet. I then plugged the refrigerator2_bing.gif and the kenmore freezer to the surge protector and I noticed when I plugged the kenmore freezer it just shorted the surge protector. I then just plugged in the refrigerator and oven to the surge protector with no problems. I tried to plug kenmore freezer to other outlet and same result "a short

Kenmore upright - wont defrost, runs continuously and wont freeze properly


well don't be surprised, these electronic fridges run on dc electronics also and are sensitive to power surges. is this the freezer because there's no thermostats just the limit control. use a surge protector on the outlet to protect the electronics. if your still having problems get the limit sensors changed first (if applicable). if you want to go the safe way, I'd consider buying a surge protector and connecting it to the power.you can e-mail me with any questions @ hvac.tech7872pr@gmail.com
