Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I purchased an Everstar two compartment beverage cooler and the coils have rusted out. Many people have this same problem and the company is out of business (bankrupt-wonder why?). Can a professional refrigeration mechanic fabricate new better quality replacement coils and if so what could I expect to pay? I keep hearing that we should all junk them. Jim Bisbee

    Thanks much. I thought the very same thing but did not want to give up on a $500 cooler. Me and 10,000 of my closest friends have the same problem. The junk yard has got to be full of this junk.

To be candid, the best thing to do is junk and dispose the refrigerator, get a better one that will save you stress and cost of repair.

To my best of knowledge, i cannot advice you repair the refrigerator because another problem might still surface, where will you get the parts from? Besides that, the cost of repair might be almost the cost of a new and better refrigerator.

Please dump and get a new refrigerator.

Take care.

Refrigeration coils rusted and leaking

Between the cost of the coil, the refrigerant, and the labor, I would say you would probably be paying more than you paid for the cooler ($500). Hope this helps

Everstar HDBC36ID non-existant repair support

Look in your yellow pages for someone who does commercial refrigeration repair. Don't expect them to do the repair under warranty, tell them you're willing to pay for the repair.

Everstar Beverage/Wine Cooler HDBC36ID not cooling

I returned our unit to Home Depot with relative ease... I think they were all aware there is a problem with these units.

They refunded the full purchase price (even though I was well past the 12-month warranty period). I put the money toward a GE Profile unit that's a little bigger - more expensive, yes; but it works, priceless!
