My dictionary has both refigerador as a "B" listing and refegeradora listed separately. Now the reason I am responing is about the use of "nevera". I used "nevera" over the Thanksgiving weekend, since it was on a vocabulary list (and discussed it with my host's): no one had ever heard the word -- of the 3 native Mexicans. But what do I know -- I am back using "refegeradora". Also "refegeradora" is fun to say.

While in Argentina, many years ago, I believe I saw,' frigorífico' and 'heladera' for 'fridge' and/or 'freezer'. Just a thought!

In any case, el refrigerador. You can also say "La (máquina) refrigeradora", but it is not common in Spain.

We also say nevera most of the time.

I agree. I've also heard "computador" and "computadora."
