GFCI trouble

I replaced a small fridge that was in an outside compartment with a little bigger one and now my GFCI keeps tripping. I don't know if the fridge has anything to do with it but it's the only thing that has changed recently. Could the bigger fridge trip the GFCI?

The GFI is looking for a ground - your new frig may not be internally grounded.

The more time passes the less I think it's the fridge. Sometimes it'll go a full day without tripping. How should I go about chasing down the culprit? I've resiliconed the top and sides of my outdoor outlets to make sure rain and dew aren't getting in. Where else should I look?

I had a similar problem at my house. It turned out the be a failed wall receptacle. Replaced the wall receptacle all was fine after that.
