Re: GFI outlet/refrigerator question
I have spoken to numerous other homeowners in my neighborhood that had non-GFCI outlets installed in their garage specifically for a refrigerator. I understand that it's against code. What I gather from the advice on here is that I dont even need to check with anyone - just go pick up a new refrigerator, right? I can do that - it just seemed odd that a 6-7 yr old refrigerator would go bad. Also, if I bought a new refrigerator and put it on the same outlet how am I supposed to know if the fridge gets to the point that this one is supposedly at (faulty)?
If ever offered a breath mint - take it.

You said your very self that you plugged the fridge into 2 different GFCI outlets, and they both tripped.
So did they or not?
If someone refers to herself / himself as a "guru", they probably aren't.
