    Thumbs down unbeleivable

    got called to check out a fridge that 2 other companies supposedly fixed, but still didnt work. its the "well give it the nite" trick that they got away. but anyway, i looked and noticed right off a little frost on the dryer. plugged right? WRONG. the liquid line came out of the condenser, up into fridge and back down to dryer then to a diverter valve cause theres 2 coils. have no idea why it took that route and still dont, but more interesting was the line was being restricted. i ended up utting the dryer inlet and didnt get much of anything, so i cut the outlet of condenser and got the full charge and alot of a black gritty stuff, which is what clogged the line. im not talkin the cap tube, but the (3/32"?) liquid line. i couldnt even get a piece of wire through a 8" piece. looked at the guy and said "done, junk it". bhe said it was only 18 months old, and he has 2 more just like it at 2700$ a piece that he just bought. its an LG 2 door up and freezer below (lfx). looked it up when i got home and theres been a class action lawsuit against them for faulty compressors but theyre still being sold. and theyre not warrantied. thats messed up

    There are a bunch of 'liquidation stores'
    I call them junk stores...
    With endless refrigerators for anything from $Grand to a $Grand and a half... some of them you cannot even find the scratches.

    It is insane to pay big bucks for a fridge these days...
    When none of them are worth a flip...

    There's a long long thread here on those fridges.
    If memory serves me correctly that condenser loop heats the door frames.

    i cant believe they would use that as a door heater, after the condenser, not much left to heat with, but then again i suppose anythings possible, and it really wouldnt surprise me

    Trying to meet BHO's ridiculous energy standards...
    While being the cheapest price...

    NOT a good mix to provide value for the customer...

    IMO not a good time to buy a fridge...
    Unless it is made in America and a new design.

    I'm surprised the first two companies couldn't figure that out. Well maybe not that surprised
