Power strip for the refrigerator
Hi, My refrigerator is an inconvenient place with only one outlet which is behind the refrigerator. Many times I have to move it to defrost it. I have to move the refrigerator which scratches my floor and then there is no room to move around in my small kitchen. Would it be okay to get a power strip to make things more accessible? I can put it on the floor beside the refrigeration and then I won't have to move it.
No, it is not okay to plug refrigerators, microwave ovens, space heaters, or any other high amperage appliance into a power strip.
I don't totally agree. I have had my 800 watt panasonic microwave plugged into a power bar for 2.5 years without any issue. It is the only item on it.
