4-got to mention, have never heard of a edf pilote fuse or seen one, have you asked them, if it has there name on it they should be the ones you are contacting

How do you know  your water heater is not on when it happens? No matter if you are not using it, it will still turn on to regulate the temp. there is alot of calcium in the water here and purchasing the wrong type, the elements will corode very quick. I have seen 30cm of calcium flakes in a 2 year old heater that was tripping the fuse every other time it came on.

B4  you pay these over the top prices electricians charge, have you thought of using an extension cord for your freezer to another zone? Sounds like when s-thing turns on, it is tripping the circuit. could be the freezer.

could also be animals and/or bugs. it is ant season.

could be a faulty and/or defective fuse (breaker) or to small of one.

you can trouble-shoot just as well as an electrician, w-out paying the price
