Upright Freezer kept indoors since 1993. Moved freezer to garage and plugged it into GFCI outlet. The GFCI keeps tripping. The drain was plugged and I cleared it of all ice and debris. Plugged freezer in, compressor came on, temp. got cold then tripped GFCI again sometime during the night. Your diagnosis Samurai is?
