Appliances with fewest problems
« on: July 17, 2017, 02:59:27 PM »
I am looking for a new refrigerator. After having such big issues with a Maytag washing machine I am trying to find out what brands have the best track record for fewest repairs, and parts availability in the future. I had found something saying LG and Samsung were the top two, but it had no support. Now I am reading about compressor issues on one of them are common.
 From a repairmans point of view which are the best refrigerators to own?

Well, I'm the local guy, have fixed all my appliances. The reason I was asking is that one of my last appliances had circuit boards that were made of unobtainium, so ended up being a boat anchor. Also, if a particular brand likes to go through compressors, vs switches or sensors, I'd like the one that is easier to repair.

I personally would not get one with a dual evaporator or an inverter type compressor as they have extra parts that can go obsolete.
Also they are  a pain to diagnose and fix.

Also I do not care for units that have the icemaker in the fresh food compartment, just seems like a stupid idea to me.

Both LG and Samsung seem to have a tendency to over complicate things.
