    They are one and the same. Fridge is a simple and short way to say refrigerator. (like auto and automobile)

    Seems to be a thing in household appliances.  

    telephone - phone

    Television - TV

    washing machine - washer

    refrigerator - fridge

    Just shortened and/or slang versions of the name.

    There is no difference between a fridge and a refrigerator.  Sort of like claiming that Tom is not Thomas.
