Fridges and freezers might work but is not up to standard and should be replaced with mordern ones to reduce power consumption - the differences is large and will pay off the new appliances soon

Regina,
That is not true. Most modern Fridges use more electricity due to the Frost-free components. Just update the plug to a 3 prong and enjoy it.

#8 Have one just like that, but in much better shape. It's at the cabin so isn't used that often. Gets really cold, really fast.

Works way better than the modern ones.

An old man I know lost his house after his fridge from the late 50's caught fire. I don't know if it was because of dust or cracked wire insulation, maybe a combination.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

Today we have this sh#tty thing called "planned obsolesence" where stuff, especially printers will have a feature that shuts it down after a specific amount of prints, rendering the printer itself useless, but still in full working order. That way you can buy a new printer and keep the wheels going.
