Is old fridge going to survive reno? Do I need an extinguisher?
So, we are down to the studs in our kitchen reno. Our contractor moved our old side-by-side into the dining room for our temp kitchen. Now it won't stop running. The front edge of the panel separating fridge from freezer is warm and the inner edges of the door, when opened, are pretty hot to the touch. I can't see as they guys did anything wrong, though they did remove the doors to fit it into the dining room. The thing is an ancient piece of junk.
I have to travel this weekend. I hate to leave it running like that. Is it safe? Should I shut it off and buy an Igloo cooler? I did turn it down to as low as it would go and still keep food. It stopped running for about 20 minutes. Back on now for over 24 hours straight.
Thanks if anyone can give technical advice.
