Mfg Date 11-86?!
Yeah, there's no point in trying to repair a 22-year-old refrigerator. Guess it's time to buy a new one. Luckily, the old one has been keeping stuff cool, and the freezer is still working fine, so there's a limit to what I might have lost. Mostly condiments, salad dressings, and a few random things. Some of the condiments and preserves are probably just fine.

I suppose I'll need to measure the space in the kitchen, and then figure out what features I want. I don't need lots of freezer space in the kitchen, since I have a big freezer downstairs. Probably don't use ice so often that I need an ice maker or dispenser, though the cold water dispenser that usually comes with them would be nice.

No doubt whatever I get will be more energy efficient than something this old. :-) I'll have to pay a visit to Thayer and Best Buy soon and see what's available.

'86

Wow ! You certainly got your money's worth out of that fridge .... I doubt your new one will last as long.

Jesus... your fridge and I are about the same age! ;-o

I'm quite certain my fridge is older than I am. Wikipedia claims that separate freezer compartments became standard in the mid-60s!

I thought the same thing (about the ice maker and dispenser), but got one anyway thinking it would be nice for when I entertained. Now, I use it ALL THE TIME and can't imagine not having one. Treat yourself!

Of course, then I need a more-expensive waterline installation, but I'll see what that'll cost. :-)
