opinion on used Uline refrigerator drawers?

scrappy25September 24, 2012

Someone local is offering a pristine appearing undercounter refrigerator drawer set with stainless fronts for $260. It looks and functions well but it was taken out of a high end house that was hit with a power surge that killed many appliances. This fridge also displayed errors and would not work after the surge but when removed (already replaced by insurance) and replugged seemed to boot up and work fine now. The new price is probably $1800. Is this unit worth taking a risk on? Seems to keep and hold the temperature, can verify with a thermometer laser gun. If you could use it in your kitchen is it worth a $260 risk? If not, at what price is the risk worth taking?

I decided to pass on it since it's not outdoor rated and I wanted it for my screened porch. If anyone wants it email me within the next week and I can give you the contact number for the seller.

U-lines look nice I have one upstairs in our wetbar, paid $1k for it. Right after the 2-3 yr warranty went out so did the fridge, cost $300 to get it fixed. When I put in an outdoor bbq island I put in two $100 each stainless looking fridges. I figured even if I had to buy new fridges every couple years I would be way ahead. Six years later the cheapo fridges still running strong.

I think you made a wise choice, especially for an outdoor fridge just get a cheap one and consider them expendable.
