    Hi

    I picked up my new Hailea Chiller this morning and was really stoked to set it up, after driving for 1hr hour looking for the right piping i finally got it up and running now every 3min or so it it trips the power. i think its just before the compressor kicks in that it trips, anyone else had this problem and how can i fix it without returning it ( can only return it on Monday )


    Thanks

    What else is on the same circuit as the chiller? What amperage is the circuit braker that trips? It may be that you are drawing to many amp's on that circuit and a simpl change to another circuit will solve the issue.

    Yes i think you can use a extension cord and use maybe a plug in your kitchen where the fridge is. Switch off the fridge and test again, if the problem persists then you can return it.
