Customer Question
Hello John, This is...

Hello John, This is Mike. Came home last night to find my refrigerator blowing warm air. Lucky, there wasn't much food to loose. was able to get a couple of coolers to save the food. The unit is a Whirlpool about 18 years old.I thought it might be too old to repair. What do you think ?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It's a Designer Style Model # ET22DMXB Woo Serial # ED0628352

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

If I can. I'm a contractor and very handy. If it's not worth it then I'll look for a used one.

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

No, that's it
