Except we only plugged it in a few times and as we gradually reduced the amount of pop we drank, we had no reason to plug it in at all. So it sat…
Until, of course, it came time to remodel the kitchen and the white fridge that matched the old appliances no longer matched the new kitchen. Redoing a kitchen is expensive and we wanted to save money wherever possible so we decided recycling the old black California fridge into the new kitchen (with stainless appliances) was our best option. DH ordered a part, read a lot of do-it-yourself websites and went about fixing the old fridge to make it usable in the newly remodeled kitchen.
We had it repaired, cleaned, sanitized and installed in the kitchen before we discovered a problem. We had both forgotten that the ice maker didn’t work. I decided a black fridge that matched was more important than ice so we stuck with it.
This time Kelly Ripa is offering a chance to win One (1) Electrolux All Refrigerator and one (1) Electrolux All Freezer.

The picture with Kelly Ripa shows the refrigerator and freezer side-by-side. You can’t even tell that they are two separate units. I’m pretty sure that they play on words for “split” refers to these two individual units.
