I wonder if this could be other than a transient spike, as in a cycle or two, but more like a short term brown out, as in a second or two. In other words it's causing a temporary low voltage condition, enough so that components are changing their state.
In residential situations compressors are guilty of the biggest percent of current increase at turn on. This is especially true with 120 volt devices impacting one phase of your breaker panel. You might try plugging that fridge into a receptacle that is on the opposite phase.
Like others, when you find the solution, I would like to hear what it is.
