Home Care - New Refrigerator

September 22nd, 2009 at 12:23 am

Spoiled milk is gross!! We just replaced our most basic model increasingly luke-warm refrigerator with the most basic model we could find (freezer compartment on top)--no ice maker, no water, just a refrigerator. We found one for $399 plus delivery and removal costs, which we felt was a good deal. Actually, it was a great deal, since at home our refrigerated food (and milk) was spoiling and our ice cream was melting as we shopped.

But why did our refrigerator only last 11 years? My parents have a refrigerator that is 40 years old or nearly my age. It's old and worn (the refrigerator, not me), but it still works great. Their milk doesn't spoil. Their ice cream stays frozen. How is this possible?? I'm so jealous!! My household owned our 'old' refigerator for all of 11 years and it just conked out. And who likes shopping for refrigerators on their day off work??

It must be true...They just don't make some things like they used to...

    EXACTLY!! We had to replace one after like 9 or 10 years just recently. Boo-Hiss! I long for the good old days when things were made with quality and longevity in mind.

    Good to know your ice-cream will be safe though!!! Some things are uber-important - that being one of them for me!

    It's most likely because newer appliances are more electronic-based than mechanical. Electronics tend to give out sooner, especially when situated in moist environments.
