If it's not one thing......

My refrigerator broke! YUP! BROKE! It started making a nice buzzing sound. Hmmm that's not good I said. So we defrosted it and now everything stays all warm inside. Of course it's 4 1/2 years old and we can't find the receipt since the move and we will have to pay everything to get it fixed....nice huh? At least we have an old refrigerator in the basement to put things. Even though it means 25 trips up and down the stairs for supper.
And the repair guy can't come until sometime after the 4th of July..........Must be a lot of broken down fridges out there.

This may have nothing to do with the buzzing,but did you clean the coils on the back and bottom of the fridge? Ours get a nice layer of dust and pet hair which needs to be removed occasionally. If it's not removed, it heavily restricts airflow and causes the fridge to work harder than it should.

Yeah....we did that when we moved in 9 months ago and we try to do it about every 6 months or so. And we did it when we defrosted the thing. It does get kinda nasty back there. I thought maybe because we had the fridge wedged in there so tight. But the manual said all we needed was an inch clearance in the back and on the top. We had that.
Thanks for the tip though!
