Sears/Kenmore (Canada) Model# 970-681821 . Anyone know manufacture date and if there is an Owners Manual available?

Hello Anna Dee;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

What a run around! Look on the inside of the fresh food section of your refrigerator. There is a label on the wall near the top. The date of manufacturer is on the label. Also the correct model number. Send me the model number.

What is the problem? Refrigerators are not designed to operate in a garage. If you purchase a new unit and it was under warrantee, the warrantee would be voided if it were operating in a garage.

I was a Sears field service technician. I have never heard of a garage heater kit.

Sorry, you got the run around. The customer service people are under trained, and the telephone technical personal have never spent a day in the field.

I live in Glen Burnie, Md. Call me 443-306-1362

Can the Magnum 1012 Radio be tuned for greater distances?

No, but there should be an adapter that will allow you to connect a larger antenna---some with the BNC type connector you can buy a longer antenna--If 10 meter be careful unless have a HAM license to operate there.
