The Frog Doesn't Lie

We got a new fridge delivered last Monday.  We allowed it 24 hours to adjust and thought it still felt a bit warm.  I cranked it up to it's highest setting and  slowly migrated food back over to the new fridge.

By Friday, it still seemed warmer on the refrigerator side than our old 15 year old fridge that was out in the garage cranking away in the 90 degree heat.

"I'm calling them." SM said.

"And tell them what?  That the new energy efficient refrigerator we bought from them doesn't seem as cold as our out-dated 15 year old energy hog?"  Me.  "Why don't we get a thermostat and compare both fridges?"

So SM went out and bought a thermostat.  "It was only 97 cents.  They had some with butterfly's and flowers on them, but I know how you like frogs."


Isn't he cute?  Love my froggie!  And froggie doesn't lie!  Our old refrigerator measured a crisp 35 degrees.  The new fridge measures 44 at best.  

A Sunday phone call to Lowes and "Here we go again."  Shuffling food back and forth.  They're supposed to be here by 7am this morning.  Wish me luck!

  1. Well that sucks. My refrigerator I just got rid of was like that, it either froze the food or it was to warm. Have to say I was glad to get rid of it. I hope they make good on yours.

  2. They just don't make things like they used to, that's part of the problem.
