The motor (compressor) is a prime suspect.

The slightest bit of damp in it can cause an RCD to trip.

We have an old freezer (bought second hand) that is tripping the main power switch (RCD I think).

I don't intend doing anything other than considering the appliance dangerous and writing it off but can any one explain to me in laymans terms what sort of thing goes wrong to cause this? I can't see a broken or badly connected wire or anything like that.
