Question about GE Refrigerators
What you saw is called 'voltage drop'. The cause, as you suspected was the fridge. What is happening is this; the compressor motor starts up to try and cool the fridge, it's probably 'locked up' or something. It's pulling high amps and the high amps flowing through your breaker panel to feed the locked motor is pulling the voltage down throughout the house. (because of the resistance in the copper conductors)
Leave the fridge unplugged until you can assess the compressor problem.
