It's when the new fridge you got from a renovation dies a few months after you got it.
My old fridge died and I thought I'd found a replacement in the nick of time.
It was the same size and color. Essentially it was the same fridge just a different brand name stuck on it.
Well it's kicking the bucket as we speak.
It still keeps the freezer cold enough to keep what I have frozen safe but it runs constantly and refrigerator temp is up.
I can get another one from a client getting rid of one but the timing is questionable.
Mine might be dead before they want to part with it.
So to lessen my stress level about losing all I have in the freezer and not wanting another that might only last a few months I got off my ass and bought a brand new one.
I went to Sears and this is what I got.
I looked at the bottom freezers but I'm used to the side by side so I stuck with that.
Seems that digging through the contents of a chest freezer won't fit the way I live.
One day I'll get a small chest freezer to fill my needs and have for times like these when the risk of losing the contents is right there. But as of now every penny counts.
Keeping things not used very often or what I have an abundance of would work well in a chest freezer.
I also did something I never do.
I bought an extended warranty. I've heard so many negative reviews about modern appliances it seemed worth it.
Plus I get to have someone come out and clean the coils & such once a year at no cost.
The other reason I went to Sears is that they could deliver it sooner then others could and they haul away the old one.
It's a second floor delivery and as this is a monster I count that as a plus.
20 years ago when I was young and stupid I managed to get the old beast upstairs myself.
Now that I'm old and stupid I'll leave that task to those with better backs then mine.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope that the old gal can keep it's contents frozen until Monday when the new gal takes her place.
