Should I replace or fix my refrigerator? || My Actifit Report Card: August 4 2020

in Actifitlast year

I rather replace my refrigerator than trying to fix it. Here are my reasons:

Few days back, my refrigerator stopped working fine, and I invited the engineers that works on cooling systems.

They checked and confirmed that it’s as a result of a leakage somewhere which they’re not able to pinpoint as at the moment. They charged us N25, 000 fiat currency which is nearly $60 to fix the fridge. I didn’t pay them the money though.

My Fear

I’m standing on the fence regarding their advice and assurance that it’ll be fixed, I’ve told myself that it’ll be better for me to sell the bad refrigerator at an auction price and then add more money and go for a new fridge again.

I can’t be 100% sure that the fridge will work fine again after being fixed and I wouldn’t want a situation where I’ll keep spending on that fridge.

Today I met a vendor that deals on fairly used goods from Europe, and the two freezers in the picture above were taken from their shop.

I like one of the freezers, this time I rather go for a fairly used refrigerator than going for new one from China. Fairly used items coming into the country from abroad (especially from Europe) are more durable than most of the new ones coming from China.

Our importers due to bad economy and quest for materialism do import substandard goods into the country, it’s sad!

Please let me also hear your advice. We’re truly in a perilous times when raising funds are very difficult. Good resource management is required now; so what do you think; should I go ahead to try fix my bad refrigerator or should I dispose it and go for another one in good state?

Thanks as I anticipate your candid suggestions.

Remain safe

Personally I prefer taking the bad fridge to an experienced technician and reach an agreement that if it's not working as expected after the repairs, he will help me auction it. Meanwhile I prefer new one than fairly used since there is one or more years quarantee on new fridges.

Thanks for your advice and recommendations Dubem. I really appreciate and reconsider my choices.

I think I might would take the used one. I say this as if they fix the leak, what if there was more than one? And, how trustworthy is the repair person? Will they just say they fixed it and take your money? Is there a guarantee with their work? It's disheartening to replace spoiled food when your fridge goes bad. I've had that happen several times in the past, either due to faulty equipment, or power outages that lasted longer than the fridge could. If the used ones are better quality, then seriously consider it. If they offer a warranty with it, that's even better. That's my opinion for what it's worth, but pray about it as well. You did well with your 5026 @actifit steps for the day. Take care, my brother. God will provide what you need.

Awesome! I really appreciate and enjoy your comment and advice. Going for another good fridge is the option I think 🤔

I’m going with your idea, it’s true we don’t have $350 for the newer fridge but I’ll rather save for it than trying to repair this one that has served for 12 years.

God shall supply all our needs. That’s a word to take home!!

Remain blessed sister.

Blessings to you as well, my brother!😇🤗
