Safe to use an extension cord for a small refrigerator?
posted by KneeDeep to Technology (15 answers total)
The instructions for a small (1.7 CF) refrigerator tell me not to use an extension cord but to have the unit rewired with a longer cord. That seems a major expense and exercise. To reach the plug (three more feet) I purchased an air conditioner extension cord on the theory that air conditioners draw a lot of electricity so it should be safe for this little refigerator.
Is using an extension cord with this small refrigerator safe? Thanks
