I just bought a Samsung fridge from a used appliance store and they recommended getting a surge protector specifically designed for fridges/large appliances. I was able to find a couple on Amazon but can’t find anything online saying I need one. Do these fridges have built in protection? If not, does Samsung recommend using a surge protector? I can’t find a model number on my fridge but it seems pretty new (within a year or two) and has a digital display.
The model number should be on the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Most devices do have some sort of built in protection, however, it is usually better to have external prevention as well considering a surge protector is much cheaper than the components of the refrigerator.
