There is no ground wire or metal conduit and therefore no actual grounding.
I ran all new circuits for my amps 2 30 amp grounded circuits and was using this 20 amp circuit for the microelectronics.

I still say that wiring a circuit with no ground is dangerous. I am sorry if I sounded a little harsh. I was not attacking you personally, only trying to impress that no ground is dangerous.

Sounds like a leakage to me as well.
Have the exact same problem right now and just took one fuse after the other out until the problem was gone.
Looked in the house which fuse it was and wasn´t too surprised that it was the old fridge causing this.

BTW: I got slight shocks touching the toaster and the oven because of this so you should solve this asap.
Kids do get harmed more seriously.
