Received my new Samsung Refrigerator model number RF28T5001, and after plugging it into a GFI outlet, it pops the GFI after about 5 minutes. Replace all outlets with new ones, just to make they were not bad. (10 years old). However problems continue. So had to run a extension chord to a non GFI outlet ( not located in the kitchen)  to get the “New” refrigerator to work. UGH. Is the refrigerator bad????

Sounds like you need an electrician. I wouldn't think a new frig, which is more power-efficient, would be the issue.
