    Another Dumb Home Improvement Question

    Kind of.
    Looking at buying a used Amana side-by-side fridge/freezer from a guy but the freezer only gets down to 24-26 degrees. He thinks it needs a new fan. Any idea how much one would cost?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    That happened to our Kenmore. It was actually the compressor. Apparently, that's a big deal. It was under warranty, but the repairman was going to charge Sears $600. I remember talking to the repairman at the time because it ended up being only about $150 less than what we paid for the refrigerator at the time.

    Just get it checked out before buying.

    Unless that baby is cheap, cheap, cheap, I'd find out for sure what is wrong with it before buying it. No sense is shelling out good money for something with a problem right out of the gate.

    that seems like it's worth zero dollars and zero cents, unless the fridge side gets down to zero degrees, in which case, well, he's an idiot.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Another Dumb Home Improvement Question

    IDK how much you're considering paying for this, but couldn't you take the $$ you're going to spend on this used one and buy a new one?

    It might cost you more upfront, but who knows what it might end up costing you to get it fixed. You could end up having just as much in the thing as a new one.
