Saying Goodbye to Your Unit
There are some instances where your refrigerator might be beyond the point of return (or at least, it will cost you less money to just buy a new unit instead of always repairing your current one). So how can you tell when your refrigerator is on its last leg, instead of just needing a tune up?
Most consumer reports advise that the age of your unit and the cost of your repair service are the best indications for when you should replace your refrigerator.
Though lifespans depend on the type of unit, units typically need a first repair within:
7 years for bottom-freezers with additional repairs in the future
5 years for side-by-side fridge/freezers with additional repairs in the future
3 years for top-freezers with additional repairs between 3-6 years, and replacement after 7 years
The general rule of thumb should be unless your refrigerator has sentimental value, whenever the repair exceeds the cost of buying a new unit, choose the new unit!
