refrigerator

  1. Appliances
    I think ours is about to kick the bucket. DS8 woke me up at 4:30, saying he heard some loud noise. It turns out that it was coming from the motor in the fridge. I'm afraid it's going to conk out on us soon, so I need to get good prices set now. Any recommendations? :)

    I'm looking for an easy recipe for refrigerator dough. I love the idea of making one big pile of dough with many uses. Does anyone have a recipe without any wild exotic ingredients? :D

    Someone mentioned that a full fridge was cheaper to run than an empty one and further suggested to put used bottles refilled with water in. My first thought was that water has a higher heat capacity than air, so after opening the fridge, less work would be needed to cool the warm air that...

    Our refrigerator went out on Sunday. I had been researching what type/size I wanted but had not got around to specific brands. We bought a 29 cu. ft. French door LG at the Sears outlet store. We got a great deal (less than half price) as they were just opened this store a couple of weeks ago...

    by a horrible smell!!! So, my fridge got a thorough cleaning this morning already. It was something shoved in the back, I gagged my way through it. LOL
  6. Baking Breads
    ...and if so, how much success have you had tweaking the recipe? I made a batch of dough for the first time yesterday morning, and last night I baked some rolls out of about 1/4 of the batch. DH and I both tried them, and the texture of the bread is great - really light and fluffy - but really...

    ~My new fridge! The first fridge I've ever bought actually. This house came with a mid-90's fridge and we replaced that with a smaller fridge from my mom made in 1999. But it has been leaking water for almost a year now, things don't stay as cold as I'd like, it's only 14 cubic feet and I got...

    I was reading an article in Body&Soul magazine about a really Eco friendly girl who writes a blog called "Green As A Thistle". Anyways she apparently was able to unplug her fridge and find alternative ways to keep some things fresh. I was looking in my fridge/freezer and realized the only...

    I cleaned out my refrigerator today and it is looking very bare...but that is a good thing. I clean it out each month, wiping down all the shelves. But, today I went through and got rid of all the misc bottles and stuff that we haven't used in forever. We have plenty of food in the pantry &...
  11. Just Tips
    Many of you probably already know this but I'm a newlywed and this was not something I knew I was supposed to do. I vacuumed the coils on our refrigerator to save money on the electric bill. Apparently if they are covered in dust they have to work harder. Our refrigerator already feels...

    I am writing this thread as penitence for neglecting to vacuum the coils and fan on my refrigerator. DW and I are doing our annual top to bottom cleaning. I took the access panel off of the frig and was completely disgusted with myself. The condensing fan was completely clogged by dog hair...

  14. Baking Breads
    This is such a time and money saver since you can just make a batch on Sunday afternoon and enjoy fresh bread all week. The great thing about this recipe is you can make as much or as little bread as you want. You don't have to make a dozen rolls at a time-you can just make and bake 4 or 5 if...

  16. Financial hardship
    What a major bummer! Last night, I realized that our refrigerator wasn't cooling well. We put a refrigerator thermometer in it and it's only cooling at 60 degrees. We bought this refrigerator about 8 years used for $400 and it's worked well up until now. The funny thing about this is that a...
  17. Question and Answer
    I presently have a large Kenmore Refrigerator manufactured in 1992. It came with my house when I bought it. There's very little in it. I was wanting to find out if it would be cost effective to buy a small mini refrigerator/freezer about 4.0 CU FT and use it, rather then that huge refrigerator...

    Well since Monday, DH is officially off of work until Feb 9 and his surgery is a week from today. From my understanding we won't even be losing any income since Worker's Comp money is not taxed and he talked to his worker and she said as soon as his current job faxes over to her all of his wage...

    Just wanted to let everyone know that if you have a Norcold 2 door refrigerator in an RV/motorhome or camper, there was a recall on them. Trust me when I tell you, they will and do catch fire! We were going on vacation and had everything in Rv except us and the dog. Went out front door and the...
