Does size matter? All else being equal the larger the size the more matter.

@boomerang,
Yes size does matter, even with refrigerators. Cool

Homedepot was having a 40% off sale on all appliances so we went and bought a new fridge. We bought the new French door refrigerator. Not only was it 40% off but no interest for 12 months if you used your Homedepot credit card. I love that thing!

Cool and awesome refrigerators!! Now space is not a matter for keeping large fridges! But I am afraid about the maintenance and replacements when it cause problems.

@jcboy,
Sears outlets have similar deals. They sell refrigerators with scratches on the front or sides for up to half price. These outlets sell open boxes as well, and include exhaust fans, top stoves (gas-electric) and so forth.

Big refrigerators are a temptation, but I might suggest to measure the entrance doors before buying them, unless a remodeling is in progress and removing doors and frames are expected already.

@jcboy,
yeah morgan, we've gotten all our appliances over the years from either Home Depot or Lowe's.

They have good deals, and we always get that 6 or 12 months no interest plan.

carolos, I'm trying to imagine someone being so stupid they wouldn't know to buy something that would fit through their door. You come up with the weirdest stuff.

"I'm trying to imagine someone being so stupid they wouldn't know to buy something that would fit through their door"

That's solved the mystery of why I occasionally see houses with stuff littering their front gardens. Sofas, fridges, mattresses, etc.

I always thought they were just slobs, but now realise that they probably don't own a tape measure.

About three months ago, a woman was looking at the big refrigerators sold in Home Depot. I saw her opening and closing their doors and can't decide which one to buy.

She looked at me and asked for my opinion. After checking one here and another there, I asked her if the refrigerator fits passing thru the doors. She asked me for my measurement tape, we took the measurements and she went home to check before buying. I bought a flapper for my toilet and went home as well.

The reason why I asked her about the measurements, is because a week before, a guy bought a used big refrigerator in a thrifty store. He saw my truck when we were loading some donations and asked me a favor, to deliver the refrigerator at his house.

He lived a mile away from the store and it was no problem to do the favor.

After the refrigerator was put down at the front porch, he found out that he was in need of removing the refrigerator handles or removing the screen and the front doors. There was no way to use his back door because was a 32" door. The front door was 36" but the space of the inside entrance didn't allow any turns without removing the doors... or removing the handles of the refrigerator.

To make things worst, in order to remove the handles of the refrigerator was in need of disassembling the doors, or remove them, but electric and water connections were in need to be disconnected as well.

I just left the place, he told me he will wait for his family to come back that afternoon to remove the screen and front doors.

If this trouble that happened to this dude is "weirdest" for you, then I think that you have no idea of what is going on with people everyday.

One more story:

A guy ordered in a cabinet maker shop, a wall to wall cabinet for his living room. He himself selected the long pieces of mahogany wood because he wanted made in a solid one piece.

To move the cabinet, the shop made a special contract with specialists. When the cabinet arrived to the house, it was found that it can't turn the back porch entrance.

The only solution was to cut the cabinet in two parts.

The owner, full of pride, contracted another company, and a hole was made in the side of the house which was made of bricks. The cabinets was installed and the hole in the wall was restored with bricks again.

Now...THAT IS WEIRD...

@chai2,
You know we’ve only had the new fridge for a couple of months and we’ve had the repairman out twice so far. First the ice was too slushy so he fixed that, but he had to come back to replace a part, every time you went to get ice it dripped water.

So far so good but I was determined to make them fix it, or replace it.

@jcboy,
Bad luck, I am sorry to hear that. I have a similar refrigerator as yours from LG and it's been running for 10 years without a single incident. *knock on wood*

@CalamityJane,
Yeah I haven't had much luck with new refrigerators. My last refrigerator was only 5 years old, now when I bought it and it was delivered I went out grocery shopping. Well come to find out it didn’t get cold so I had to have them come out again and take it back and bring out a new one.

So far so good with this one now but if I see any signs of dripping water their not coming out to fix it again they’re replacing it.

@jcboy,
Nothin' beats my experience with a home depot toilet. After the contractor guys who were helping me when I first moved here had installed it, it flushed weirdly after a while and then stopped up. I knew the low flow ones could be cranky, but this was silly. The plumbing guy, of the two of them, took it apart. There was a child's orange screwdriver toy somewhere in the S curve..

Clearly not completely new, was it..

He fixed it for free (actually, I gave him a huge wrench I had from California, that bro in law had given me, but that was after he had already said 'no charge') and I ended up thinking it was all funny, since the problem was well and truly fixed. I saved the orange plastic screwdriver for a week or two (cleaned, natch) to keep myself laughing.
