    Keep the fridge / fridge door closed.

    Is it necessary to state fridge door, when keep the fridge closed could also be understood?

    Re: Keep the fridge / fridge door closed.

    No, it's not necessary if the person is standing there with the refrigerator open. You could either say 'keep the fridge closed' or 'keep the door closed'.

    However, I don't see anything wrong with saying 'fridge door', either.

    Re: Keep the fridge / fridge door closed.

    Door is understood - what else relating to fridge could be open? - so it's more economical and more common to omit it.
