The little mechanical timer in it got so sloppy it wouldn't cycle properly. I can't remember if the timer was no longer made or just too expensive to replace. But until then it worked like a dream.

I bought a Jenn Air from a buddy who had just bought a new house. Brand new, but his wife didn't like the color so I got it for $50. Supposed to be top of the line... Total piece of crap.

Just last week the floor manager at Home Depot told us that there are shiploads of refrigerators and other stuff sitting off the coast of California but the Longshoreman's Union has control over the unloading and they're still milking the covid thing to the max and won't allow temporary workers to unload the ships. Take that for what it's worth.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

If you have a problem balancing the fridge temp and freezer temp, your inside light may not be going off when the door is closed. Put your cell phone on record, put it inside and close the doors a few minutes.

Good advise Charles...saves a service call.

Another one
vacuum under the fridge in the evaporator pan, dust builds up and stops the drain when the frost free kicks in and the cycle is broken and the fridge no worky-turkey when it cant drain down to there cry eek
But the repair man is not going to tell you that, more money is selling new and re-selling your used to apartment rentals re-furbished after they remove it from you.

and you thought only used car salemen were dis-honest, go figure

Friends of mine had to wait about a month for a freezer. That was a few months back though

Wouldn't it be easier to just push the button the door hits in and see if it goes off?

It seems like it to me. But I don't own a cell phone, so I don't have to try to justify what one costs a month.

Remember that that light switch has a silver contact when you do scrap it.

one thing is the temp dial after so many years can not be moved as there is corrosion around the different sensors and poof,,
