Question about Electrolux 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel
Hello .. I would try plugging the fridge into a normal receptacle and see if it is OK with that .. If the fridge is not compatable with the GFCI. then you might think of replacing the receptacle, If it is behind the fridge then there is no problem, If this is one of your counter receptacles . then you should think about rewiring the circuit and locating an unprotected recaptacle behind the fridge just for its use.

Code actually calls for the refrigerator to be on a separate circuit for this reason. you may have a refrgerator that may have a higher voltage spike at compressor start up and that is causing the trip. You can try upgrading your GFCI to a 20amp (most are 15amp). Although you may have to replace with a standard outlet if the problem does not subside.
