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!
