Electrical Wiring in the Home/GFCI

There's no fault in the fridge. It goes along the same lines as not wanting to plug a refrigerator into any type of extension cord. The reason why being both gfi outlets and extension cords restrict and limit the amount of amperage needed in order for the fridge to run properly. just replace the gfi outlet with a standard one.
