    So my fridge is broken, but for some reason not my freezer. It's a Kenmore, built in 2004 so it's not that old. One idea that someone had was that the freon may be low, or that the compressor went (which is weird because the compressor should be shared not 2 of them). Neither resolution seems to make much sense to me, as both should result in both areas being not cold.

    So I'm wondering, anyone have any idea how to check the freon? Anyone else with a suggestion on what's happening? Is there a gauge or something that tells the fridge how cold it is inside?

    Quick! Join the army!

    Better yet, write a novel about how your time-traveling fridge gave you a two-week heart attack after you hit some guy in the back of the head with the owner's manual for a DeLorean!

    Some of those old Kenmore & GE products are the best.
    The clock lights may burn out, but they'll still work forever.

    My GE blender that I got from my mom, who got it from her mom, still works like a pro lol

    The best thing for a clogged toilet is a straw. Really, try it out.

    I can't help with the toilet or the fridge, but I do know the best cure for seasickness is to sit under a tree.

    I don't like GE refrigerators. My parents used to own one and it broked down about five times and they finally bought a Kenmore. Never had any problems with Kenmore yet.

    My landlord furnished me a GE refrigerator and everytime the cycle shut off, it rattles for about two seconds.

    My refrigerator provides you with water AND ice from the door. Plus it has a light so you can enjoy your water and ice IN THE DARK.

    Bet you guys are jealous.

    My fridge laughs like a chimp every time you open the door. If you heard the noise it makes, you'd either stop laughing, or laugh harder.
