When we bought this house, it had an Amana refrigerator/freezer, which has worked just fine for us for several years. Until last week.
Suddenly we had things in the refrigerator part freezing, things in the freezer thawing. We adjusted every setting on the thing to no avail. It was obvious the thing needed help, time to call the repairman. But wait, looking into the paperwork, we found the unit was nearly sixteen years old. You don’t repair a major appliance that old, you replace it.
So we spent a few miserable days of frozen milk and eggs, thawed meats and soupy ice cubes, doing research, and came up with a short list. With that in hand off we went to look at refrigerators. We started at Home Depot, which had a sale and the best price on the ones we wanted to look at. After a certain amount of door opening, bin rattling and looking at functionality, we settled on the one that we felt gave us the best combination of features and price. We spent more than we’d originally intended, but a counter-depth unit in the exact right dimensions limited our choices.
So we ordered it: LG 24.6 cf French Door (3 door) in stainless, counter depth, with ice and water in door. Plus, while we were there we bought a Maytag 15.8 cf upright freezer for the garage to replace our small chest freezer that had grown too small for our needs.
You want cold, we got cold.
Now all we have to do is wait a week for delivery, while wrestling with the faulty unit and it’s ills. Come on, September 8th.
