I am no expert on this, but...the more difficult the method of connection, the better it will be.
The best way is probably solder. The second is to cut the wire and use crimp on splices.
The least good way is to use "snap on" splices that do not require cutting the wire. They will work but are prone to losing the contact. But if the connector is easy to get to it can be repaired quickly. I used these to get power for the fridge compartment ventilation fans on my old Niagara without incident. YMMV
An examination of your fridge may find a more suitable way.
