Does anyone still make one with analog controls ? Digital is great
sometimes , but in some cases IMO analog controls are more
trouble-free and cheaper to repair if they do break .
A neighbor had a refrigerator with digital controls and it would
occasionally stop cooling for no apparent reason. He said he had to
unplug it for 30 seconds or so, plug it back in and then hit a Start
button on the display. Only a bonehead engineer would design a
refrigerator that needs to be rebooted periodically.
So yah, if you want your food to stay cold, buy one with analog controls.
This was caused by the water supply to the ice maker coming loose ,
wet the control board . I don't think it's a very common failure . New
board has already been shipped ... BTW , this unit was bought used I
think about 4 years ago , and has been rock steady the whole time . If
we'd had problems before I'd probably be plunking down nearly a grand
for a new unit . Oh , there has been one problem , and it's probably the
same type of problem . A few months ago the water in the door unit
started leaking at the back/bottom of the fridge . I'm betting there's a
loose tube there too , as it's right at the solenoid valve . I opted to
purchase a new control board for under a C-note (delivered) instead of
buying a new fridge .
Yes , I'm old
and crochety - and armed .
Get outta my woods !
