Samsung fridge tripping breaker. Model RF24FSEDBSR/AA barely six years old.

Happens on multiple circuits so ruled out issue with the breakers in the panel.

This is an inverter compressor fridge. Resistance across all pins on compressor reads the same; no continuity from each pin to ground. Tried replacing start relay and still trips breaker within half second of plugging it in.

LED on inverter board lights for half second, fan begins to move (doesn't make it a quarter revolution) and breaker trips.

Thinking it's either main control board or inverter board, but how do I narrow it down?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks Jake.

Can’t get it into forced operation mode, breaker trips as soon as plugged in.

Removed compressor start relay from side of compressor. Same sequence occurs. Led lights goes out, a click and breaker trips in less than a second of being plugged in.

Ok, then you have a short somewhere between the power cord and the main connector to power the machine, check your power cord where it connects to the machine for a short.
