Question
Hello,
   I am on my 3rd refrigerator in 14 years.  It seems every 5 years the refrigerator suddenly gets warmer and warmer and quits.  The last one made popping sounds all the time.   I tried to find someone to repair them but everyone says "Just throw it out and get a new one."  I have had 2 Whirlpools and now a new Frigidaire.  I read somewhere they should last between 10-15 years.  I don't know what I could be doing wrong.
   Can you tell me what makes these expensive appliances go bad and why are they throw away?  When I ask a repairman why they say "Made in Mexico".  
    Can you tell me how to prolong this new refrigerator.

Answer
First of all I need more information....   I have been servicing for 36 years and repair 6-12 refrigerators a week along with washers, dryers, ranges, oven and diswashers.  Perhaps your area doe snot have repairmen that relly want to work or simply dont know what they are doing.  Most refrigerator repairs are a simple defrost problem.  One of three components in the defrost system.  Do youi have a unit now that is giving you a problem?  If so, give us the symptoms along with brand and model/serial number and we will see what we can do for you....

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
