Can Moisture Cause a Circuit Breaker to Trip?

Does a breaker trip due to wet/moisture near the circuit? The old fridge has been replaced and a new cable has been run due to the moisture from the AC before. That circuit has been changed, now the breaker trips after a short period. Any explanation why it keep tripping?
