My Refrigerator is As Quirky As My Computer

I am a busy person, so I don’t like to waste time. I have a full time job, plus I have three children who are very active. That means I am chauffeur, chaperone, referee, and cook. To be fair, my kids are awesome, and my husband gives his all as well. We make it work, because family is important to all of us. When something happens to throw a kink into our busy and often chaotic schedules, we handle it the best way we can. That is why I did a search for major appliance repair in Sacramento when my fridge stopped working not long ago.

My husband was on a business trip and would not be home for three more days. I had just been grocery shopping the day prior to it not working, so it was nearly fully stocked. I had no idea what was wrong with it because fixing major appliances is just not something I handle on my own. Thankfully, I was able to find a company that was able to come out that day to take a look at it. They asked me a few questions about the brand and what the fridge was, or rather was not, doing so the tech would have what he would hopefully need to have it working again that same day.

The repair technician brought some kind of electronic thing that he thought would be the problem. I found it interesting that the company could pretty much tell what was wrong by just knowing the brand and model of the refrigerator and what the problem was. Everything seemed to work but the temperature in the freezer was not staying below freezing. The tech hooked up a meter to test a circuit and then replaced the part. It was then working fine. He said that old refrigerators were all mechanical and lasted for many years, but the new ones are computerized and much more sensitive to power surges and electronic failures. Ah, the computer age and its improvements on technology!
