Anyone know if the Compressor for these Jenn-Air units are replaceable with a "universal compressor"? The whirlpool part is over $400 for this unit. Can I use something else like a LG linear compressor that goes for $199 brand new?  The actual part is this but not sure if it is a linear compressor they do not show specs for it.

Would I be able to substitute this LG Linear compressor in the Jenn-Air model I am posting about? It is only $225 http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Compressor/TCA35271202/4452978?ss=i734-x6c666332313737367374&mr=1

you would have to figure out the output voltage from the control box from the whirlpool to the LG. Would need to know what hz it operates in.
Then the piping would most likely be different.
Then the mounts may not fit.
Then the size may not go in to the compartment.
Way to many variables to save 200bucks IMO

I would probably replace with a similar compressor, not LG linear. Hmmmmm. Call a REFRIGERATION supply house and ask for a substitute?

Anyway the woman sold the fridge before I could buy it, she was selling it on craigslist for $400 of B/O and it lists for around $3000 new.

She claimed a tech told her it needed a compressor so I was trying to figure out if the risk was worth it to buy it and try and replace it with a low cost compressor if I could get the fridge for $150-200 but she said its gone.

I saw many people complaining about the Jenn-Air models are they lemons or what?
They are made by Whirlpool so does that mean all Whirpool are problematic?

What is the best fridge to buy? I need two new ones for my Sandy flooded apt house renovation and was looking for good used ones on craigslist but might just go for new ones on sale so I dont have more headaches with used lemons.
