Fun little poll

Thought it would be fun to do a little poll to see about what the average age is that a appliance gets replaced.

So how old was the last appliance you replaced?

Please tell us some more about it.
What appliance was it?
Did you want to replace it or did you have no choice?

Hi

I just had to replace my 6 year old Frig.   :tickedoff:  I was not pleased.  My last frig lasted 18yrs.  What's up with this?

I was so happy to find sites like this to help me with troubleshooting.  O0

""6 year old Frig""   Blame the new energy saving stuff required on the stuff these days, nothing holds up now like the good old appliances... ???

Wow!  This is another fantastic appliance repair web site.  I noticed Pegi moderates here and I now see where all these appliance repair manuals reside.  Lest I forget, my old washer which I just replaced a few months ago "was" a reliable 28 year old Maytag GA408.  A real joy to use and repair simply because it was well designed, majority of parts were easily accessible and ebay along with other web based retailers had a plentiful supply of repair parts.  Had to toss the washer after not being able to source a replacement mechanical timer.  I presently have a General Electric WPRE6100 which I "thought" was a good washer until I read all the negative writeups/reviews in all the appliance repair forums.  Consumer Reports spoke glowingly of GE having one of the best top loaders....Anyway, I'll be lurking here quite often as you can never be too old to be taught new skills repairing versus tossing repairable appliances.

Yeah, we are very lucky to have Pegi help us out. :)

Consumer Reports, lol.... Yeah..Consumer Reports  :ahhh:

The poll is getting interesting. So many under 10 years old getting replaced.
Will be interesting to see if it stays that way after 100 votes, 1000 votes, etc...



Hope you find our website helpful.

I would like to make it perfectly clear that I have not ever downloaded any manuals into this forum, I do not not want any mis-understanding about the source of the manuals available in this site..there will be members that know me from several different forums but make no mistake, I only help here with answering questions, I do not contribute any tech data or manuals....Pegi

Yep, that is correct and I would like to thank Pegi for helping answer questions on our forums.

Also if the members take a look at the file they are about to download it will say what member uploaded the file. This way there is no mis-understanding as to who is uploading the manuals.

6 year old bottom mount Amana refrigerator!
Had a bad compressor and not long before the compressor went out we had to replace the control board and the start relay.

After the compressor went out we decided to junk it out. :(
