Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes just need to know how to change fridge and freezer settings

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Its new model # RH25H5611

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
