ME - 6 years ago, Verified purchaser
Fortunately I tested it before complete install after reading very mixed reviews. The unit ran for a few hours but was not very cold, then shut off. I found that the breker had tripped. Reset, tripped again aftter a few minutes. Tried a different circuit, same thing.Tested amp draw. When the compressor engaged it would pull abou 13 amps, then begin to climb steadily until reaching almost 30 and tripping breaker. I was in the low 90's so I turned it off. Two days later mid 80's tried again. This time it would do the same and amps climbed to 22-23 so I returned it to the store, which was hassle free.
