Using an Extension board / Cord and refrigerator not working?
Refrigerator not starting or cooling
It is not recommended to connect the power supply to refrigerators through extension board/cord. If it is mandatory, use the one with a power rating of minimum 15 Amperes.
Ensure that the house wiring is grounded
Ensure that the extension board is well grounded to avoid electricity leakage. Also plugging in multiple appliances increases risk of fire.
