I'm not sure if this is the place for this question, but I'm eager to
About two months ago, I came home to my apartment to find a VERY loud
refrigerator and a totally defrosted freezer. I unplugged the unit,
cleaned up the mess, called my landlord, and told him the issue. He's a
nice guy, and ordered a new fridge that very hour. In the meantime
(about thirty minutes later), I plugged the unit back in, and it
started working again. I called my landlord back, and told him, but he
decided to not cancel the order, since my fridge was old anyway, and
So a new one comes, two days later. It's an Avanti FF106W,
Refrigerator/Freezer. I'm delighted, of course, and I buy all new food,
etc. But when I come home the next day, the freezer has defrosted, just
like the old one did, and everything is melting.
I call the landlord, he calls the dealer, they send a repairman (three
days later), and he says the door doesn't fit well, so they have to
order a new one. That comes a week later, the guy who installs it says
he doesn't see why a leaking door would be the problem, but he installs
the new one anyway. The problem continues; the freezer freezes and then
I call my landlord, and say that the fridge still doesn't work. He
calls the place he bought it, insists on a new one.
Here's the thing: the new one came last week, and it does the SAME
THING. It freezes, and then defrosts. It doesn't run loud, the light
always works, but stuff doesn't stay frozen.
My landlord called an electrician. He came and checked everything, but
didn't find any problems. We tried running the fridge, via an extension
cord, off another plug; nothing changed.
