Fridge - mine goes from gas to electric as soon as I plug in. Check your circuit breakers, the reefer has it's own. BTW on newer models to reset a breaker you have to push it to a solid "OFF" then reset it to "ON".
Quite a few people have replaced the venetians with the International Day/Night blinds - they are PRICEY. I asked at the mothership, and it was over $120 per blind for my unit - six windows (I don't have wraparounds in the bedroom. Several people found similar blinds in marine product catalogs and websites.
And there's no "half way open". They are either totally retracted or totally closed. The earlier CCD's had plain white window blinds, with a snap on the bottom to hold them down. The newer ones are contained inside of a metal roller, are aluminum colored rather than white and have sort of a catch at the bottom that parks in a receiver screwed to the wall below the window. These hug the window closely mainly because the roller is small, and the blinds come off the roller on the back side.
Of course you can mount ordinary window blinds the same way. Any kind of blind will be less maintenance than cleaning the Venetians.
Happy Trails. Paula
