my new refrigerator has arrived

Two months ago, my 15-year old trusty refrigerator started making some pretty spooky sounds as if it was possessed. I decided it was finally time to get a new one. My search for a new refrigerator included two canceled orders, becoming buddies with a couple of guys at Best Buy, and finally putting in a special order for a very ordinary refrigerator, but one that would fit in my tiny space. It took a month to arrive. I got the call yesterday that it would be delivered between 2 and 4 pm today.

This morning, I got up early and started on a major cleaning spree. I wanted to make sure my place would be sparkley clean and less cluttered for the delivery guys, not that they would really care. I threw out piles and piles of catalogs, boxes I had piled up in my outdoor storage space, and a few items that have been hiding in the back of my refrigerator for a few years. I live on the second floor and must have taken at least 20 trips up and down the stairs today. Because I still have some gunk in my chest, I am pretty wiped out after all those stairs. Now I knew that the delivery guys would not be peeking into my outdoor storage space, but I got on a roll. A little tidying up turned into a mini spring cleaning event.

I am happy to report that my new refrigerator was successfully delivered and is now sitting in the little corner of my kitchen. I can't believe how quiet it is. I even checked on it a few times to make sure it was still working. I am looking forward to a peaceful night - no more clunking sounds to wake me up :-)

Great news! Did you ordered the Whirlpool?

Hi María, yes I got the Whirlpool. I forgot to put a link...will do that right now. Because it was a special order and there were no photos of the inside on the web, I only realized after it arrived that this model only has one control for both the refrigerator & the freezer, but I guess it that doesn't really matter much. Otherwise so far, I like it :-) Thanks again for your help during my search.

We just got a new fridge too. I've been spring cleaning my boyfriends house for a year now. I can't tell you how much stuff I trashed, even food that had the price in french francs!!

It looks like it is the perfect refrigerator for you since it meets your specifications.

One control for both fridge and freeze should not pose a problem but defrosting ( like the LG model) is a huge one!

Enjoy your new quiet fridge!

Angie, that is amazing...wasn't that back in 2001? It feels good when everything is dumped. I still have a little more work to do, but did most of it yesterday.

I definitely agree, María. I never want to have to deal with the hairdryer and the knife again. It did finally start making a few noises but nothing like the old refrigerator. It will do just fine :-)
