brand new side/side amana refridge sat in flood waters about 20" for about 24 hours. can we have it checked out and possibly reuse it or is it trash?
most likely this will need to be replaced for these reasons, 1 the compressor relay and overload would need to be replaced, 2 the insulation in the refrigerator is saturated and will mold and you cant replace that, there are also many other electrical components that would need replacing such as the fans , corrosion is also an issue, sorry for the bad news, but for your family's safety replace it, thanks Bryan
