SN #P685634

The frustration comes because I don't know if I don't know anyone I can really trust.  For $300 I would think the guy could have told me where the leak was or test the compressor somehow.   Oh.....I don't know.   He gave me a story about new refrigs having computers so they are more expensive to fit.  He said w/ a new compressor it could last another 10 plus years.  But there are other expensive parts (evaporator) plus the freezer compressor.  

And......maybe the Energy Saver type frigs would save a lot.   Electricity is really high here in Los Angeles.

My husband is a locksmith and does a lot of work on the house.   But, we dont have specialized tools for frigs.   He also has multiple licenses and works w/ people that could probably get the freon stuff.  

Does the SN number show anything like how old it is?  I could almost guarantee it is older than 12 years.
