It seems I was a bit hasty in pronouncing Mr. LG Refrigerator dead this morning! I wrote his obit. before the repairman had paid us a visit. Good news! There is life after death for refrigerators and he may not be destined for the happy recycling center for deceased appliances after all!
After hooking up some fancy testing equipment the repairman discovered the compressor is still functioning and that the problem is a bad starter unit. Mr. LG is not out of the dark however and will remain hooked up to life support ( temporary starter unit) until said part can be shipped in about 5 days!
So, I apologize for any undue grief this morning's premature obituary may have caused and appreciate the kind condolences from you dear blog readers throughout the day. We are hoping for a good outcome as a new fridge really isn't in the family budget at this time. Mr. LG is resting comfortably this evening after a thorough scrubbing inside and out today while the food and frozen goods were being stored in Mr. Harvest Gold Fridge in the garage.
So keep us in your thoughts and prayers and Courtney please keep that bottle of Pinot Grigio chilled. One way or another we are having a celebration of life by weeks end. For a life that was well lived and stocked with mostly good food and leftovers or a life that will be brought back to us by the life saving efforts of one good repairman named Daniel and a new part!
