Aw, so sorry RMS.

I'd break out all the tupperware, zip locks (use a food saver, if you have one), get big bags of ice and keep em in the fridge. Try not to open the door too much. Hopefully, by then, you can get someone out to repair/replace it. Maybe a neighbor or local restaurant will share some fridge space.

Another thought -- I would go thru the yellow pages and look under appliance repair and have it checked out. It's less costly than buying new. Since it's only two years old, can't see why it would completely break down. I'd be on the phone talking to the store manager where I bought it. Good Luck.

We're thinking of buying a small one as an extra but I bet I won't be able to get a delivery before thanksgiving either.
Did you check the warranty? If it is less than 2 years old and breaks down, probably you have a just reason to have it replaced with the good one by the manufacturer.... take out the warranty and take another look!

Thanks Urm. but I still have to wait for them to get here before I can try that.
It's really starting to get on my nerves now and I still have 5 days to wait.
My SIL informed me that when hers went when they came they had to order a part and that might take another week! I hope that doesn't happen to me too.
Oh well, trying to grin and bear it!

I'd go with GB advise and rent one.

Pick up some dry ice...it will take up less room and last longer.

We get by with a little help from our friends
