Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the fridge tripping the breaker. It appears you have done a nice job of troubleshooting this already. This type of problem indicates there is a short in the unit. The 2 most likely places will be the compressor and the defrost heater. It could also be a short in the wiring but it's not as likely. Since the back cover is off, a good check will be to remove the small cover from the compressor and you will see the starting device, which plugs on to the compressor terminals. It could be burnt. If it looks ok, pay close attention to the wires and pull the starting device from the compressor terminals. Now, be sure to disconnect the power before making this check. With the starting device removed, make sure it's not touching anything and reconnect the power. If the breaker does not trip now, it will indicate the compressor is shorted and would need to be replaced. If the breaker still trips, disconnect the power again to check the defrost heater. To make this check, remove the back panel in the freezer and you will see the evaporator and the heater mounted under it. Disconnect the heater wires and reconnect the power. If it does not trip the breaker, the element will need to be replaced. If it still trips the breaker, it would lead to a wiring problem and a technician would need to make this check to determine, if the unit is repairable. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services. I hope this will help you.
