Just opened fridge and realized that i could feel the heat from the lightbulb. Our fridge is dead. How long are these things supposed to last. It's only 10 years old! Freezer still works though. Hubby - who is a A/C RAC technician says we should buy a new one. anyone know of any good appliance sales still going on? anyone have suggestions for a good one? we have the freezer on the bottom and like that. - but have always wanted a side-by-side. MIL has the freezer on the bottom, but it's a drawer that pulls out. don't like that.
