Refrigerator - Surge Protectors

We do not recommend connecting a refrigerator or freezer to a surge protector. The reason we do not recommend this is explained below:

  • The compressor is sensitive to temperature and current overloads and will shut itself down with a power surge. It will also restart itself.

  • A surge protector will override this system. If there is a power surge, your refrigerator may not restart when connected to the surge protector. This could cause food spoilage.
