I would be afraid it would separate the plastic drain hoses off the rubber tubes on some refrigerators. mostly SxS have a 2 piece drain.

I've had one for a couple years. Well worth the money. They work great for dishwasher hoses also. I also have this in my arsenal, wouldn't leave home without it. http://www.aspensafety.com/ASPEN_MANUFACTURIUNG/DRAIN_KITS_files/shapeimage_11.png

I coulda used one of these on my house ice box. Dayum drain had a solid chunk of ice in it. had to let it thaw out over night, and this was the 2nd time. Called myself flushing it out last month. The freezer worked fine but no cold air at all in the bottom. Solid slab of ice between compartments. Rodded her out this go around. Hope I have it this time.
