I got an estimate today to fix the refrigerator lights in my Whirlpool side by side refrigerator that has the LED lights in the Refrigerator and the Freezer..

Get ready !!!!!!!


$60.00 for the Service Call


$40.00 for the first 30 minutes!!

$205.00 for the Refrigerator LED light

$205.00 for the LED Freezer LED Light

That is not including the Sales tax , and the hourly charge goes up; if it takes longer that what they figure.

$554.63 !!

shocked crazy

For a couple of hundred Dollars more, I can buy a brand new refrigerator; with the freezer on the top !!!

Welcome to Socialism and the new America. There are repercussions from allowing our country to be stolen.

The old joke about Soviet socialism rings true...

A man in Soviet Russia saves and saves and saves his rubles to buy a car. He finally has enough to buy one and goes down to purchase it. He fills out the paperwork and is informed he can return in exactly 10 years to the day to pick it up.

He asks, "Morning or afternoon?"

The man handling his paperwork asks, "Why would that matter?"

The man buying the car says, "The plumber is coming that morning."

Yep! I got three freezers here. Two in the kitchen. One of them ~ my main one ~ has a light. Other doesn't need one. I only keep a loaf of cheap bread in there, for bird bait.

Third one? I keep pet meat in. It's in a back room and has no internal light. I often enough have to go in there after sun down.

Guess what I do? I Flick The Ceiling Light On, For Two Minutes! laugh

Seriously, guys .....

Yea we got screwed but it wasn't by another country it was by corporate America that outsourced the chip production to save money. They are starting to realize it was a mistake.

Where can you get a fridge for 700 bucks, ours took a dump and needed to be replaced asap, I found out there are more fridges over 3000 than under.

You know what I don't understand? Why does everything have to have a computer, a circuit board or internet connection? We had lots of stuff that worked perfectly fine without them, and not all that long ago. Now a circuit board goes out and you have a 400 dollar motor to replace on your 3 year old washing machine because its all one component.

We need to bring back our manufacturing capabilities.

if you have a water/ice maker make sure your insurance company knows = 3000$ gems
most floods are caused by these and if not listed, there is no wiggle room if or when something goes wrong if not listed

And that same country just bought the UKs largest computer chip manufacturing company.

I like my fridge like my truck

minimal features

crank windows , rubber floors


a single bulb in my refrigerator only , the freezer is in the basement

my sone was just telling me that they "fixed" the tail lights on a bunch of cars the same way , with LED panels you can only get from the dealer and they are 1100 dollars with a 50 dollar core , way to fix that 1 dollar bulb that lasted 5 years


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I like bare bones refrigerators too. As long as they don't use too much electricity.

I just went to Walmart and the shelves are still fairly empty of normal, everyday items. They didn't have the Gatorade powder, puppy food, shrimp and canning supplies I wanted and had huge gaps all over the store. I am very tired of hit and miss shopping. Screw socialism!

You cant order lights off of Amazon and fix yourself?

Should be the lights you need.
