My Kenmore fridge kept tripping the circuit breaker in the GPCI once every 10 hours or so. I have had the fridge for almost 9 years now, and the problem started a month ago. What I tried so far is that I plugged the fridge to another GPCI outlet with nothing else plugged-in and the problem persisted.

The manual says nothing about this problem. Having a Kenmore technician come and try diagnose for the problem costs $129 with no result guaranteed. So I thought I should try doing diagnosis on the fridge myself. But where can I start (e.g., how do I know if it's the compressor drawing too much current or something else that needs replacement)?

Any guidance or reference to tutorial would be helpful. Appreciate it.
