Here's a New One on Me

For the past couple of weekends, I have been trying to figure out why our refrigerator wasn't working on 120V. I could hear the gas ignitor working and the fridge would get cold, but only on gas. I thought I had checked all the connections and everything seemed to be right. Oh well I thought time to call the service guys.
I then checked to see if there was power at the receptacle where the fridge plugs in - guess what no power. Checked the breaker box - everything working well. Oh well, it really was time to call the service guys.
In the middle of the night it occured to me to check the GFI in the bathroom, sure enough it had tripped (don't know why, as we never use the plug (being folically challenged I don't need a hair dryer!). Reset the GFI and guess what - the fridge works on electrical!
Sure glad I didn't call the service guy - I would have been mightly embarassed!

Good one! At work we'd have a repair tech you didn't want to get laughing at you -- which he did enthusiastically when he could proclaim 'operator error.'

Another thing that works is to take the chocolate double chunk ice cream out, put it into this thread and send it to me...
