USE OF POWER BAR

 

 

Is refrigerator plugged through a power bar?

 

 

Cause

 

Some less expensive power bars available in the marketplace are not grounded. 
Leakage current can also flow to the refrigerator door if house wiring is not grounded.

Being that a refrigerator is the single one household appliance running just about constantly

it is highly recommended it be connected to a dedicated AC outlet and circuit as well as avoidance

of a power bar between the refrigerator and the wall AC outlet.

 

 

 

Troubleshooting

 

For housing wiring, contact an electrician for grounding.

When using a power bar, use those with ground terminals.

Products with rated capacity over 15A should be used.

Outlets on walls are recommended for running refrigerators. 

Plugging in many products into a power bar can cause fire or electricity leakage.
