This, let the truth be told, is the mound of dust bunnies at the base of our refrigerator I discovered this week upon investigating why our 15 year old refrigerator wasn't cooling our food properly! Mighty embarrassing, I know. The manual stated that the condenser coils needed to be cleaned by vacuuming "every other month". WHOA.......in that effort I failed miserably. So, folks, this is a friendly reminder to keep your appliance manuals handy and refer to them now and then. Don't wait until you have a malfunction like I did!
P.S. It turned out that even a thorough cleaning didn't resurrect our frig, but who knows how its happy life might have been extended had I been more vigilant??
Now that I have shared my story, I invite you to share a true horror story of a kitchen appliance in your life! Come on, BLOG AWAY!!
