ChezBez's offer to save my little pint of Blue Bell came too late. (Thanks for tryin', brother.) It did not survive the inadequacy of my teeny weeny fridge's freezer compartment.
On the brighter side, the refrigerator repair man came this morning and fixed our Whirlpool Gold in less than an hour. The motor that circulates the cool air between the freezer and the fridge had completely disintegrated. He said he'd never seen anything like it before.
AND, that $40 service warranty probably saved us around $150 bucks. We didn't have to pay a dime for the parts or the house call.
Besides all this, I am happy to report excellent customer service from both Best Buy and the repairman dispatched to handle the problem.
I'd say that makes for a very good day.
