Re: Mechanical troubles!
Our refigerator just crapped out. It's only 2-3 years old! Needless to say
we did not purchase the extended warranty. I took it apart yesterday to see
if I could figure out what was wrong and/or fix it, but I couldn't find the
problem. Got a repair guy in to look at it. Turns out the motherboard is
bad. Yep, the fridge has a motherboard. The repair guy wants $300 to fix
it, but I found the motherboard online for $120, so I'm going to try to fix
it myself. Hopefully I can fix it for $120, so I don't have to spend $700
on a new one. Sheesh!
