We got home Friday night and discovered our refrigerator had died. The ice cream in the freezer had melted and the temp in the refrigerator part was up in the fifties.
We both did some research on refrigerators online looking at various sites. We were limited in the size we could get. The old one was a 10 cu. ft. model and the area it was in was built around it so the new one couldn't be much bigger. Finally we decided we'd get a small dorm frig as they are cheap. Saw one online at Menard's for $120 that was 4.6 cu. ft. and decided to run down and get it. When we were there looking at what they had in stock I spotted a 11 cu.ft. model on sale. Turned out the display model was the only one left in white. Got another $10 knocked off the price and decided to buy it.
When I got it home, needed to change the doors around. I have been changing the swing on refrigerators for over 30 years. Anywho, what should have been a 10-15 minute job took over 1 1/2hrs!! Most miserable fucking job I've ever done when it comes to changing the doors around. Instead of having the same screws or bolts for both the hinge hardware and to plug the extra holes, they had screws with shallow star and a couple stripped out. Then when I went to change things on the bottom (hinge plate and support) the hole for the support didn't seem to have threads as I couldn't get it to start, it just spun and didn't go anywhere. Went looking for my tap and die sets. Turned out to fuck with me even more the threads weren't metric like just about every fucking thing these days, they were SAE. As I have both metric and SAE sets I was able to find the right tap and tapped the hole and finally got the stud installed and was able to screw the foot on. For the stripped screws I cut a slot across with a hacksaw and used a straight screwdriver to remove and install in the other hole. Then to add insult to injury, when I changed the stops on the doors, there wasn't a hole for the screw on the other side. Had to drill a pilot hole for the screw.
Turns out it was probably built in the USA, but it sure as hell isn't up what I think of as USA standards!!!!!!
I hope it works better than my experience with changing the doors.
