Oh yeah, my complaint. Damn everything seems to get broken at the same time, so I need to fix and buy for big money. Pretty recently:
- My car needed a 1000€ fix (mainly regarding the brakes, the price included also general check-up and maintenance for the whole car).
- My washing machine was starting to break down, so I bought a new (and bigger) one for about 900€ (including delivery)
. To add salt to the injury, a week after I bought that 12kg machine, that same store put it on discount which would have saved me 100-150 € or something like that (I don't recall exactly how much it was discounted).
- A couple of days ago I noticed my car's license plate is falling off. It seems the holder for the plate has for some reason broken up from the right side, so now it is hanging only from the left side anymore. I made some quick fix so that it stays at least in level, but I guess I need to get someone to fix it properly. Hopefully the holder is a cheap part.
- Yesterday my refrigerator broke down suddenly. No idea what the problem is, but green light is not lit anymore and the refrigerator part doesn't seem to cool down anymore (the light inside the refrigerator works). At the same time, the lower part, the freezer, seems to work fine?
I first hoped maybe there is just some fuse which has blown up inside the refrigerator (because the freezer part works fine) so I googled a bit and looked inside, but I didn't become any wiser so I guess I just need to buy a new one (refrigerator + freezer, not sure if i buy a combined one again or separately so that I can get a bigger refrigerator). HereForBeer, any ideas? Weren't you a handyman?
. I checked e.g. this video
(the same parts on my model are actually on top apparently), but as said I had no idea what to check. I couldn't tell what part would have been a "fuse", if any.
Luckily for me, the apartments have some cooler room downstairs (mainly for people who want to preserve berries and mushrooms there I presume; I've occasionally used it during some bigger parties if there hasn't been enough space in my medium size refrigerator) so I brought my groceries there safe (milk, meat etc.), and also I guess I can take some stuff to the balcony as well as now the weather has become colder here (-4 Celsius degrees or so).
What next, probably our dishwasher croaks next? And then the TV? And then, have mercy, my gaming laptop?!?
