Out With The Old, In With The New . . .

Late Friday night while I was waiting for hubby to get home from work I kept hearing a weird clicking noise in the kitchen. I finally figured out that the clicking was coming from the refrigerator. When I opened the freezer I discovered the food was thawing out. Oh no!! When Bob got home he checked out the situation & determined that the compressor was out. We loaded up all the food & took it to Bobby & Kari's house around 12:00 AM.

On May 30 we had a power outage for about 2 hours. The power went on & off quickly several times. Last week we had another outage & power surges. We are pretty sure this is what fried the compressor.



Our old Whirlpool fridge was at least 10 years old, maybe older, we can't remember when we bought it. We spent most of the day Saturday shopping for a new refrigerator. After running all over town checking out the options we finally made a decision.


We bought this Samsung, French door fridge at Lowe's. It was delivered Sunday afternoon. We're still learning how to use all the fancy features. So far we love it!

Congrats! I have the Samsung from Lowe's with French doors and bottom freezer and LOVE IT!!! I did not opt for the water in the door, but there is a water dispenser INSIDE the frig, which works fine with us. I assume yours is also the "fingerprint free" finish, like ours.

I am a new reader, live in Edmond, OK, and will be back for visits. :)

Pretty!

My friends recently had a similar experience and their new fridge looks a lot like this. Their 20 year old daughter walked in the kitchen late after everyone was in bed the first night it was there and exclaimed, "There is a spaceship in the kitchen!!!". We all got a chuckle out of that.

Technology has certainly changed the appearance of our appliances, hasn't it.

Very nice.
