NO. The fridge must be on a dedicated circuit. The freezer has no restrictions.

I'd put the freezer on a dedicated circuit, also, and use an always-on night light for a pilot (if the freezer doesn't have an integrated pilot light). Less likelihood of a tripped (but unnoticed) breaker thawing your food.

You posted just fine. That is a signature line. Sometimes people will send a private message instead of asking a question in the forum.
