This has about 8 hours left and is current at $1. It's listed as a Frigidaire, but it's a GE. Looks like it's in upstate NY.

Missing the bottom grille and definitely lacking details, but what a beautiful refrigerator!

I saw it when there was only 15 hours left. I called Paul about this but I think he didn't feel like he needed to get another fridge that far away! We were also wondering about the damaged power cord! I hope it gets to a good home!

For 99 cents? Those shelves don't look very strong - but that's a cool Frig-i-GE (dare I say?)

It's been working for more like 50+ years. We got ours in 1961. That is a beautiful customizing job.

Tom, that's amazing(to me)..never mind that it's a GE ,which isn't making anything to last 10 years - w/o some replacement costs. Curious, what maintenance/parts servicing did it require to keep it going this long? You use it today as a backup or main box?

It has required some service over the decades. The old compressor had to be replaced after somewhere around 16 years, which was typical for old GE compressors. There were a couple of service calls to replace one or more of the internal fan motors and the there have been several service calls on the hot gas defrost system, the last one in the late 80s or early 90s. On the last service call, the GE tech told my mother that it was too old to fix and wanted to give her a certificate for a new GE. The bottom freezer design was no longer being made in 1977 when my parents decided to fix it rather than replace it. I was visiting in Florida and mom called so that I could talk with the serviceman. He went on about how if the defrost thermostat went out again, the part would probably be NLA. John and I had discussed the defrost system so I told him what John had told me: if the thermostat was NLA, we could bypass it by installing a timer to take it in and out of defrost. I also told him that we would not buy a new GE if we had to replace it. He agreed to fix it for mom. Fortunately, all of this was done when it was in my parents' home, It got a rest of about 11 hours on its trip up here. It is in my basement where it is still being used. I like the bottom freezer design much better than my newer GE with the top mount freezer in the kitchen, but it's not worth trying to move it upstairs.
