What part is causing my fridge to trip breaker as soon as I plug it in
So my fridge LSC27910ST
instantly trips breaker when plugged in. I discovered if I unplugged the defrost thermistor inside the freezer that the fridge will run again. Figuring a bad thermistor, but I am getting the normal expected resistance readings when I test the thermistor. But if I plug it back in, the fridge shorts the breaker instantly. What related part would cause this to trip? The heater element also has normal resistance readings. Is it the board? If so, can the board be repaired?
