The fridge repair guy just left. He was here for 45 minutes so...$58 + $30 - not bad so far. The problem was the freezer's thermostat which wasn't working. So the heater coils that are in the bottom area of the freezer (technical, aren't I?) were all frozen up and then the air flow from the fridge wasn't getting up there to make it cold or something like that. I don't know. All I know is that for the first time in a week there is really cold air blowing around in my freezer and that makes me HAPPY! The part he has to order is about 20 bucks and should be here by early next week. Then it's that $20 + installation....at any rate, much cheaper than buying a new fridge.
AND I get to have hard ice cream this weekend.
