After finding out that apparently if you buy a fridge from Lowes they don't remove the old one for you, I decided to finally take a shot at seeing if I could just try and fix my fridge. It's a GE Profile fridge, approximately 27 years old based on the date tagged on the defrost assembly (1994) -- older than me!

Apparently the heaters have gone bad, so it's not auto-defrosting. Found a pair on Amazon for $20, so now I just have to wait a week and pop the new ones in and see if it works!


I also cleaned the coils as best I could and good lord THE DUST
