So, you're willing to move the frig out far enough to reach behind it. Then (maybe) you'll be lucky enough to have a duplex outlet to plug the tracer into ?
Unfortunately, your frig "may" be on a single outlet. As mentioned, by Code, it has to be on a single circuit. That tester works fine but don't be too surprised to find you may have to unplug the frig anyway in order to use that particular tester. One can only hope, though.

Stay safe

A radio works great, used it for years while my Green Lee circuit tracer sat in the truck.

Refers in a home do not have to be on a dedicated circuit, depending on the age of the house, it could be on a gen lighting circuit. If newer it can be on one of the (2) 20 amp kit circuits, or a dedicated circuit sized to the name plate rating of the refer.

The NEC has never required a dedicated circuit for a household refrigerator.
