My fridge runs 90% of the time and shuts off very rarely.Its just off the living room and drives me bananas. Should I use it for target practice?

Mine ran for 8 minutes, 27 seconds, then cycled off for 6 minutes, 43 seconds.

Something is wrong.

Clean the coils.  If you are like most people you have never cleaned them.

Mine will run for about 20 minutes, then cycle off for about 20.  

The problem is, it sounds like a train wreck when the compressor shuts off.

Have checked to ensure the motor is securely mounted to the frame...no problem.

Have cleaned the coils and in & around the motor...no problem.

The freezer and the fridge are both keeping things at proper temps.  

It continues to work but that train wreck each time it shuts itself off can't be good for it.

Or you can wait for it to die.

Then your wife will want a new refrigerator.  But not one like the old one - a bigger, shiny, nicer one that costs $1200.

It doesn't matter if the cutout for the kitchen isn't big enough for the new fridge, you can start tearing down walls and doing masonry work on your next 6 free weekends.

And since you're already tearing down the kitchen walls, let's remodel.

Oh, and she also will want new cabinets, a new stove, put in a vent hood and a new line (more masonry, BTW), then tile everything.

And since you're already working in the kitchen, let's turn the adjacent closet into another bathroom.  That won't be too much extra work.

Don't worry, once you do everything else she promises she'll do the 3 square feet of plaster work to finish it all up.  Except she won't and you'll have a completely new kitchen with a gaping hole with exposed plaster slats because she can't be bothered to get dirty for 4 hours of work.  So you can do that, too.

And even when you've got a nice new kitchen and everything, you'll still have to do all the cooking because she could burn water.


Trust me on this one...

CLEAN.
THE.
FUCKING.
COILS.

Ive cleaned the coils and the thermocouple (sp), I guess its about normal as far as how often it cycles, its just pretty noisy and its about 12 feet from where I sit and watch the tube, surf the net etc.. We are remodeling the entire floor when the moneys there including moving the entire kitchen to the other side of the house. We like nice stuff and the last time we looked at fridges we had sort of decided on the Sub Zero with the glass door $7K. But I figure hell it will last as long or longer than a new car, get used more often and add to the resale.
