My Refrigerator is Broken!

One week before Thanksgiving and my fridge goes on the blink. They can't get anyone here until the 25th!!!!!! All I have to work with is one of those mini refridgerators.
Oh woe is me!!!!

I just had to get it off my chest, Thanks for listening!

That stinks RMS!

How about borrowing as many ice chests as you can & pack as much stuff on ice as you can get in them?

That really sucks!
We lived out of ice chest for about 2 weeks at one time. It's really hard unless you can get by with hot dogs and stuff like that. If you don't have the money right now to buy a new one, maybe you can get one at a rent to own place. I know their interest is horrible,but, a lot of them have stopped with their early pay off penalties.
good luck, rms, I hope it all works out for you!

Oh man... that is one of the worst nightmare that can happen... I agree with crewsk about collecting as many icechests as possible... it is going to be a pain in the u-know-what but it is better than letting all the goodies inside go to waste!! I hope you can find someone to fix it sooner!!

Would it be possible to rent a fridge until yours can be fixed maybe? Do you have a garage that you could put a second one in for the time being?

Thanks for the sympathy.
The fridge is less than 2 years old, so it technically IS a new one.
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.

Have you tried jiggling it?

Seriously, has it stopped working all together - or is it not getting cold? You could try testing the outlet, removing/unscrewing the back plate and dusting (you'd be surprised how much dust gets back there), is there a temp dial inside you could check, or perhaps it might need freeon(?) Since you have the fridge, maybe you can put some big bags of ice inside.

BT, I remember prince albert in a can & Is your refrig running?

Thanks Mish,
We checked everything and it is broken. Probably the compressor my hubby said. I like the ice in the fridge idea. We are using a cooler and a mini right now.
I just wish it weren't going to be thanksgiving. I can buy a fresh turkey and veggies but where am I going to keep the leftovers? ughhhh!!!!!!
