My optometrist went nuts when I told him I put my reading glasses in the dishwasher. I said "The owners manual said the top rack was perfect for glasses!"

I would buy the refrigerator only after I get the keys to the new house.

I have an LG refrigerator and we get ice underneath the freezer. It is a french door refrigerator and from what I've read online that is a common problem with the french door no matter who the manufacturer is. When we first got it we had this problem and it was under warranty. The repair man came and said there was styrofoam in the line, and it probably got in there from the factory. It was fine for a good while after that and then the ice started accumulating again. We are putting off calling a repair man as it is no longer under warranty. I don't think the fact that it's an LG has anything do do with it, but the style instead.

We have a gas furnace, clothes dryer, hot water tank and stove. It's what I'm used to, but I have lost my sense of smell so it's not good for me to have gas. So far I depend on DH to smell if we have a gas leak. I have heard that you can get detectors from the gas company to give an audible warning, same as a smoke detector.

We've never had a problem with ice under our Maytag French door refrigerator.

Carol Pa (I knew a Carol Pa in Hawaii ) do you have the water/ice dispenser in the door?

No, we don't. The salesman said it's the primary reason for service calls and it takes up a lot of space inside.

GG, I tried to explain this to DH and he's not buying it.
"So how come our Kenmore (really a Whirlpool) has had no troubles in 17 years?"
At this moment, would everyone please knock on wood for me?

Don't have an answer for you, K'girl I'm happy with tap water and freezer ice, so no big deal for us.
