Question about Refrigerators
Hi. We live in an apartment that my wife started renting in 1993. It came furnished with a used Hotpoint Refrigerator model #ctf15cb, which, at the time she moved in. We are wondering if anyone knows how old the fridge is. I've googled and binged and cuiled this model number and have come up with nothing. The building was built in the early 1970s, and for all we know, this is the original fridge.
The reason we are asking is that the fridge is dying and needs to be replaced, the ownership of the building has changed hands, but the new owners are claiming that they can't take our word for it that the apt. was originally rented with the fridge. If my wife bought the fridge it would be our responsibility to replace, but if the place came with the fridge, they'd have to pay to replace it. Her original lease doesn't mention the fridge, it simply says the place comes ''as is'' (language designed to make renters responsible for fixes, but since deemed meaningless by the local rental board. Owners have to pay for building maintenance.). But if we can establish that the fridge is older than 1993, it will help us make our case that the fridge was here when my wife first moved in (if they assert she may have brought a ten-year-old used fridge into the apartment when she moved in, we think the rental board will not believe them. We're in a rent-controlled place and the landlords are notorious around here for being cheap). Thanks!
Looks like between 82-84
