    Oh My Gosh!. , I didn't even think to google it. lol. , I was just thinking that I would have a hard time looking through the dang address book at home (either white or yellow pages). Thank you for letting me know. I guess with ALL that stress I am having, sometimes it is hard for me to even think straight to look into the internet, & google espcially. Thanks, though.

    I definitely will, as soon as we are able to get out again, we got heat exhaustion after everything else, perhaps sometime tomorrow

    hmmm, how FUNNY!, it really does not say what kind it is , ONLY that it is a Kenmore "Refrigerator-Freezer" that's it!. I can tell you this much, that is not!, it is NOT a Frost free refrigerator!! . I hope we can go out tomorrow (Monday) for a thermometer & see about the other fridge that Sears are selling for the same height we need.

    "Check the temp." ?? - NO!! "check the seals? [or gasket?]" yes, even pulled out the fridge to check for what? I don't even know. He really did not do a whole lot, so what ever!!. ALL he said was, it works!! what ever guy!! He did not do a whole lot. sigh!! :-(

    I wish there was a problem with the door seals, unfortunately no .

    That's what I was told, that it does have one year warranty, I wanted to check up at sears today to check for more refrigerators after going to church, & my hubby's hour spiritual meeting, then costco, thereafter, it was just wayy too hot for us, & we got heat exhaustion, so we ended up just going home. Perhaps we'll try again sometime tomorrow. (I hope).

    Regarding our JUNK Fridge!

    May 14, 2011 Saturday.

    We have had this JUNK newly replaced fridge from SEARS Kenmore (model # 461.62302) ; our old fridge WAS pretty good, the freezer section NEVER froze over, & ALWAYS kept our food from spoilage! It was time for that old fridge to be replaced, well, our new fridge is worse than the old one we got!! :-(, The new one, well, the freezer ALWAYS froze over!! :-(. & the AC .. well, I'll just say that, we had to throw away a few to a lot of food due to spoilage, & the AC is NOT that cold!! what it is really is ; its is a piece of SHIT!!. They told us that it had a 90 day warranty, I NEVER SAW IT!! & I was NEVER notified about it!!. Well, in short, the Kenmore guys came by to look at it (5/13) to asses it, what they really need to do is, to GIVE ME A WHOLE NEW ONE!!. I HATE THIS NEW DANG FRIDGE,!!! PLUS the freezer section is too dang small!!!.AND it freezer over!! The more it freezes, the more we don't have any space for food that needs to be frozen!! :-(

    We have had it since Jan. 2011. SIGH!!!. :-(. We did not have to pay for it, since, after all, we are just renters. The land lady paid for our new junk fridge ($600.00). I did not go out to look for it, & I did not went out of my way to have it dropped off. It was the land lady's son in law - Steven Dung (he picked it out & had it dropped off to us). lol. No kidding, that's his last name.lol.

    When They finally came & ALL of coldness ONLY goes down from the freezer & it does not have any fan to circulate the cold air!!. :-(. I was told that I should get a "Force Draft", & that is NOT what I have :-(!!. I was told to call who ever we got the fridge for me, & I did, & all I got was a darn voice mail. :-(!!.Technically,the fridge we have now, is NOTHING BUT a Giant icebox!!. :-( When Steven Dung did call, & still did NOT help me at all!!. Why?, cuz, him & the Sears guy just told me that it is in working order, is not broken at all, & they don't want to help me to replace it. We can't afford it ourselves to buy another one or a better one, cuz we are both are not working because my hubby had a heart attack in Nov. 2010, & he has a defibrillator, & was told that he cannot work until indefinitely, my hubby even thought of looking at Rosses for a smaller & cheaper one, but the thing is, is that, Ross don't deliver for free :-(.

    I don't know what to do :-(. The Sears guy just told me (when he came by just to asses it) that it has one year warranty, that is not gonna help me one bit. The only thing we can do is MAYBE look at Sears & see if our land lady & Steven Dung will be able to compromise if we find one that fits our needs. The food spoils in that STUPID Kenmore Refrigerator!! We had to throw away 2 gallons O.J. one week before the expiration date, & among other foods. The Fridge we had before this one, ALWAYS kept our food & drinks from spoiling. The ONLY thing was the problem with it was the door rubber sealant around the door was not keeping the cool air in, & that they refuse to replace it, & just said that it was an old model, & they would rather replace it with a whole new fridge (between you & me, that's a lot of B.S.)

    Replace it they did, & all we got was a piece of shit fridge that continued to spoil our food & fruit drinks!!!!. We both are not working either, & no other means of financial help. We are only getting by with my hubby's savings :-(. SIGH!! I don't know what to do!!. We need a new fridge!!. UGH. SIGH!!. I even told the Sears guy that our new fridge that does not work, that it is a piece if shit. Unfortunately the size we need is very limited :-(. We need to find one that is Height: 58 inch, width: 23 & a half inch, Length:24 inch (58 by 23.5 by 24) & that is the measurements to our new one. Anyone here got any ideas for me?? Hope to hear back from you soon. Aloha.
