Well, this takes the cake. I couldn't get the freezer drawer open, despite using a hairdryer on it. Asked DH to open it when he got home. I needed my frozen jalapenos for salsa.

Bad word bad word bad word. The whole freezer door broke and came off!! More bad words.

I guess I'll haul out the duct tape. More bad words.

Oh man, Dawg, that's awful. Looks like you need to have a marathon cooking session.

Called the store we bought the fridge from, the repair people won't be open until Monday. We unloaded all the freezer stuff into coolers.

Thinking I may get rid of this piece of crap. I'm probably going back to my side-by-side. Heck with the bottom drawer monstrosity.

Thankfully, our neighbor has an empty freezer in his basement. He's out of town, but graciously is allowing us to use it. I turned it on, and am letting it cool. I have his garage door code. DH and I dragged two heavy coolers over and plunked them down his basement. Many more bad words. We'll head back later to unload when the freezer gets to temp.

Gads Dawg. That's not only frustrating, aggravating and a miserable steam building blood pressure %&*()*. I'd have blown it!

Keep us posted as to what exactly happened to the drawer. It sounds like a rare thing but it might help someone else somewhere along the line.

My vent at the moment is having pneumonia while my daughter is visiting. Curtailing any excursions we were going to do.
She stayed with me last year for a couple of month when I had my rotator cuff op. We thought we would have more fun this year without the nurse and patient aspect. HA!!

How disappointing, dragn. Sure hope you can kick it, and you girls can go have some fun!

My assessment is the ice maker kept leaking into the freezer, causing an ice buildup and making the door stick. When we were emptying it, we pulled out several pounds of ice. Pulling on the drawer door broke it off.

This wouldn't happen to be an LG refrigerator with french doors, and a bottom freezer door. If so, I have one too, but haven't yet hooked up the auto ice maker. Just freezing ice trays and storing the ice in the appr0priate bin. Had to do maintenance once as I occasionally drip water onto the top sliding tray when filling the ice trays.

Mine's a Maytag. Soon to be an ex-Maytag. French doors, bottom freezer. Bought it in 2010, and it's no longer under warranty.

We have size restrictions, as there's an overhead cabinet in a built-in space. I'd have to remove the whole cupboard in order to fit a bigger fridge in the space, and I'd already cut off 3 inches from the bottom of the cabinet.

Now I'm needing recs for good replacement fridges.
