REfrigeration

Why is it called “REfrigeration” ?  Isn’t there an underlying assumption there that the natural condition of these things is cold and that the device is restoring them to that natural state?  I’m pretty sure when I put a 12 pack of cokes in the fridge that it’s the first time they’ve ever been put in the platonic ideal state of “chilled.”

Why is “fridge” spelled with a “d” in the middle when neither refrigeration nor frigid have one?
