I just purchased a 7 CFT Magic Chef Freezer from the Home Depot. The place that I want to place it is about 6 feet from the nearest electrical outlet. Reading the manual it states not to use extension cords of any kind. Is the reason they put this on for fear the consumer will try to use a standard electric cord and cause a fire or is it something else? I plan on getting a 15A with a 14 gauge or 12 gauge wire. The line that it is attached to goes to a 15 amp circuit and seeing that it hasn't tripped he line while it is running I should be ok. Any help would be appreciated.
