It's no coincidence that appliance makers now are as eager to sell you an
extended warranty as they are to sell you an appliance, and that failures
tend to happen just after even the extended warranties expire.

I have a refrigerator made by General motors handed down from my
grandfather, that still works fine and has had only 1 freon charge
that I know he ever gave it 60 yrs old beat that


You should see how much less electricity a new one would use.

Okay, I have a General Electric monitor top refrigerator that my
grandparents bought in 1927 which has never had even one service call and
still works as well as the day they bought it.

Contrary to what you might think, at least the GE Monitor Top uses very
little power. The cooling unit is self-contained and hermetically sealed,
sitting on top of the food storage area. The box itself is very well
insulated. There are a bare minimal number of moving parts, no fans, no
defrosters, etc.

Tried checking it with a kill-a-watt usage meter?

Yup, but that was made back when quality was something real achieved by
design and manufacture, as opposed to something the marketing department
only pretends is real. Products made to that sort of standard today are
usually luxury goods.

I just walked into my kitchen to confirm that all the appliances
(refrigerator, dishwasher, electric range and microwave/vent are
Whirlpool "Gold". They are all just short of eight years old,
supplied by the builder with the new house. Total of one service call
to fix the microwave as part of a recall. Since the microwave
couldn't be used for about a month, Whirlpool offered to pay for a
tabletop microwave (up to $100 if I remember correctly). The recall
was handled very well and you got to keep the second microwave after
they fixed your unit. While there is a small premium for the "Gold"
series it isn't anywhere near the Bosch/Miele/Subzero price range. In
my case the quality isn't just marketing, its a reliable set of
appliances and great customer service.

Huh, well that's good to hear. I guess with all the junk we see these days,
especially the stuff from China, it's possible to lose sight of the fact
that not everyone does business that way, although the guy who started the
thread might disagree.

And how much more he'd have to pay over the years for all the new
refrigerators and all the production pollution and the freon disposal
and recycling charges that replacing it with a new one would actually cost.
