Hi George, unfortunately Kelly is offline.
The fact the fuse isnt tripping in the plug this sounds like an earth fault, in the circuit breaker does it say RCD or MCB?
You will probably find the water generated from defrosting the freezer has gotten into the unit and resulting it trip, since we have some very warm summer days, I would take the fridge\freezer outside leave it in the sun with the door open, to help it dry out, then try and plug it in and see if it trips again.
