I don't know what it is about me and refrigerators, but they always seem to crap out on me. Maybe it is because everywhere I have lived has had an old crappy one.
Our current fridge came with the house when we bought it and it seems pretty old. I figured out what the problem is, but I think it is beyond my capabilities for repair (plus I don't have the equipment).
Getting a repair person would probably cost about $350, getting a cheap replacement would be about $600, getting a nicer one would be about $800, and getting a nice one would be about $1100. Problem being, we don't have any of it on hand. It doesn't seem worthwhile to get it repaired. But if we replace it, should we just get something cheap or should we aim for something better.
And the joy of home-ownership.
