    Don't Need a new Fridge - Yahoo

    My 24 yr old fridge is a Cadillac compared to the new junk from China. All it took was a switch for the heaters which keep the freezer frost-free. I'd checked out a bunch of new ones and quickly developed a whole new appreciation for this one which has a good energy rating.

    What kind is it? Our fridge is 23 and going fine. Furnace lasted 27 years, dryer us 23, dishwasher gave us 17 years. New one is only so-so.

    Washer gave me 22 yrs. Dryer was still good as it's mileage was much lower than the washer. New stuff is tinny and no where near the quality of the previous. Warranty on door ended at 20 yr and the door started falling apart. The fridge is a Beaumark, a large retailer's store brand but I believe it was made by GE or Westinghouse, very reputable companies back then. Roofing was replaced today after 25 yrs. The problem with a new house and new appliances is everything and the roof needs replacing around 20-25 yrs. I guess I was lucky to start with good quality. I've also developed a new appreciation for my couch and chair. I paid $1500 back then and the cushions don't sag, the frame is strong and the fabric isn't showing any wear. A saleslady told me the new furniture is exactly what you pay for and that if I'm tired of the color to get mine reupholstered rather than buy new.

    It's all about buying quality in the first place. Those old appliances weren't the cheapest on the market at the time they were purchased. Buy a new one now and you need to spend a lot of money to get quality. I seem to be stuck on Kenmore Elite and GE Premium stuff. The biggest difference now is that there is a lot more junk available then there was 20 or 30 years ago.

    When I was researching new refrigerators and saw a bunch, I couldn't find a new one that was either made in N.America or isn't full of Chinese parts. It matters little how much you're willing to spend. Even the new Sears Kenmores are junk, they all are. North Am. Sold out to China and that is why the economy is in the tank causing all the unemployment.

    I don't agree, but I guess I can't prove it for another 15 years, when my now 5yr old fridge is 20! :)
