Yes, if you caused the chip in the fridge and the chip cannot be repaired but must be replaced, it is classed as damage and the landlord is able to take from your deposit the cost for damaging the fridge. You just need to ensure it isn't excessive therefore if the landlord has had quotes on how much it would take to repair it then I would request to see it. Hope this assists, please provide a rating, thank you.
