So the refrigerator failed at the apartment last week. Actually by Saturday it was about 50 degrees in the fridge side and still cold in the freezer. We called the land lord, and since she is stateside and the old one was close to sixteen years old, she said for us to just go out and buy one and take it off next months rent. We were fine with that or so we thought. We went out Sunday to shop and try to work out the logistics before we lost any food. We decided going in that we would try to find an Energy Star unit to lower the WAPA bill, plus there is a twenty percent rebate program from the government here on Energy Star. So first stop is Home Depot, they had three fridges in stock, one luckily would fit in the opening and it was Energy Star, $929.00 for a two door 21 Cubic Foot model with an ice maker that we couldn't use. So we told the land lord we would shop to make sure we got the best price. This was a big mistake. We went to KMart, Price Smart, Cost U Less, and Western Auto, and two independent furniture stores. None of them had an Energy Star unit in stock. So we go back to Home Depot to buy the one we looked at first. They no longer had it in stock, they only had one when we were there, this is information that would have been helpfull to know when we left the first time. So in utter disbelief we gave up and went to the beach. The last hope was the appliance Expo, they were closed on Sunday. Deb called them Monday morning, no luck there either. So we gave up and bought a non energy star unit from one of the independent stores, since they delivered. We got the new fridge Monday evening. Like most simple things here, it wasn't so simple.
