    In the middle of a heat wave, the 4yr old fridge gave it up.Thank heaven we have a freezer ,plus an old,small fridge in the garage.

    I have fresh veggies on my counter,along with bottles of pickles etc that don't have to be cold. That old fridge is so small & no ice cubes.

    Repairman can't get here till later NEXT wk.OH,my!

    Why do those things always have to happen unexpectally.

    that is not good, we just purchased a new fridge and put the old one in yard last night for free. Husband left for work this morning and it is already gone.
    I would have saved it for you!

    Same thing happened to us last week-fortunately, we also have a fridge in the basement, one in the garage and a freezer. Good news-it was a fan, and my husband ordered one on Friday and installed it on Tuesday. Saved a lot on repair bills and wasn't a difficult job-maybe you could do the same?

    that is terrible, hope you get it fixed soon (we have an extra refrigerator in the garage the one we got in 1975 when we got married and still runs)

    we remodeled the kitchen years ago and had to get a new one for the color in the kitchen, didn't want harvest gold anymore in the kitchen so we put it in the garage

    In the last two weeks we have had to buy two new refridgerators for tenants. Not sure if it is the heat or just coincidence. We have a little one we take over for them to have for back up until the new one arrives. Hope yours gets repaired soon.

    This makes me appreciate our appliance store so much more! We have bought ALL of our appliances from them and if I call they are there that day or the next. I know we couldn't call a big box store and expect the same service!

    We purchased a new and larger fridge a few months ago. Gave the 'extra' fridge from the garage to a family with small kids...they LOVE it.

    Hoping to see a smaller electric bill because of only one fridge and hopefully a more efficient version at that...The other fridge was 16 years old.
