Can you put a refrigerator on an extension cord?

Yes, you can use one if the capacity is sufficient. But most refrigerator manufacturers recommend not using an extension cable for several reasons. One of the concerns is that you will use a cable that is not able to carry the load without overheating. This may become a fire risk.
