The fuse 'popped' in my fridge this morning - should I be concerned?

Afternoon all.

We have a Samsung American-style fridge-freezer, about 8 months old.

This morning, I heard a 'pop' sound and the fridge was off - changed the fuse and it's on again, but does this mean that something is wrong with the fridge? I'm worried it's about to break and its full of food which will watse LOL!

Correction, Fuses do or are supposed to blow under certain circumstances, However fuses can blow, If it blows again with in the next couple of weeks then could be a problem.

Thanks

So should I get onto the company I purchased the fridge from now, or see if the fuse goes again?

There could have been a surge in the electricity supply, this is also a reason for the fuse.

Or maybe something on the supply it is plugged into. As an emergency test you might be able to plug into a different circuit somewhere else in the house via a cable extension if necessary. I have separate circuits for the front and rear of the house. If you have similar try plugging off of a different circuit and see if you still have the problem.

I have plugged it into the socket next to the one it was in when it blew - on the same white plastic, is this not good enough? Shall I try a different socket altogether? Thanks for the replies x

No cos that will be on the same circuit and if by chance something else on that circuit is causing it to blow it will still do so.

phone them up as its under the warranty?

ensure that if no fault is found - they dont charge

i remember sony tried to rip me off/scare me off and say that if no fault is found they charge a call out fee of £60 (sony store)
