One day, the LG fridge stopped cooling/freezing. I had to throw out $200 to $300 worth of food. I contacted LG, they connected me to local LG certified folks, and also had a specialist contact me, promising to help cover the cost of the fix. (That specialist has disappeared off the face of the earth.) The technician came, added freon, charged me $295, said to wait a few days, I did, it was back to cooling/freezing, so today I bought $400 worth of food to fill the fridge back up. It's not as cold as I'd like, so I'm concerned, but I just filled it back up, so I'll give it time. BUT...Now the electronic panel is making all sorts of crazy noises. If this food has to go, we're talking almost $1000 spent, total, via wasted food and freon + labor. How much does a new fridge cost?
