• What are the odds.

    The repair guy for the fridge came yesterday around 4.  He was sure he had the right part this time.  He had spend 30 minutes on the phone with LG explaining the situation.  They assured him this part (the 4th one) was the right one.

    He entered my kitchen and pulled the fridge out and then started to unscrew the back panel.  I whispered to my husband, "So far, so good!"

    And then there was a whole lot of quiet.

    Finally I heard him talking on his phone to his boss ... "Did you get the picture I sent?  Yea, I don't know what to tell you.  I talked with them at length about this."  The conversation went on a bit more.

    But I knew - it would not be fixed.  Not now!  Not Ever!

    I give BGE Home (our appliance repair vendor) credit.  They tried.  They were so apologetic.  They admitted they could not fix our fridge.  They suggested that if we called LG and have their technician come out - BGE Home would pay the cost of the labor and repair whether or not LG could fix it.  The technician also suggested that when some imports (LG is Korean) change their product line they also stop producing replacement parts for previous models.  Then the parts become impossible to find.  Sounds like us, doesn't it.

    We decided to cut our losses.  

    A new GE refrigerator will be delivered to us on Wednesday.

    Five more days of buying ice every day and eating strangely because I can't really cook.

    But the end is coming.
    And if when the new unit fails (which with our track record is entirely possible)
     it is American made, so parts are available.

    Remember folks,
