Aardvark noted: >>i don't think words can describe how my, currently unplugged, fridge >>smells... even though it's new and devoid of food... Looked at a house this week. (Yes, we are STILL shopping. It's quite depressing.) This place had what must have been a $10,000 'professional' fridge. But the house is a foreclosure. And the idiot bankers turned off the mains to save $$. So the fridge has been sitting in the heat with doors closed and no power. ;-( What a waste! I don't want to even imagine the smell! RonL.
