seaching Shopper's Square, I didn't see this, but I may be having a mindfart, but I either posted it before or I thought about it. Can delete if dup'd.

Ad: " Vintage 1960 General Electric "Combination" refrigerator, yellow (NOT gold), with gold anodized aluminum swing-out lazy susan style shelves with lazy susan rotating crisper bins, and counter depth size (so it doesn't stick out past the counter). See the last photo--the color of the kitchen cabinets most closely reflects the actual color of the refrigerator.

This refrigerator is sold AS-IS, and needs repair, but is worth repairing. It is in a little-used Hunderman kitchen (see last photo) in the basement of LaGrave Christian Reformed Church, so it is in nicer condition that you'd probably find in a house.

I am a member of the church and own a vintage kitchenwares shop (, so when I heard the church planned to purchase a new refrigerator, I couldn't stand idly by and see this beauty hauled off by recyclers. The $50 asking price reflects its need for a repair. The church will receive the money, and I am just facilitating its sale (rescue). They did not check into getting it repaired, so do not know what's needed. It may be simple. Who knows? If you want a beautiful Mid Century refrigerator for not a lot of money, this could be your answer.

Here is a video of the refrigerator's features and what it does when it is turned on:

....Who knows what a "Hunderman kitchen" means enlighten the rest of us? I thinking it's another steel cabinet brand, one that I've never heard of.

She refers to them as "Geneva" cabinets in the video clip. 


It's tough to tell what's wrong with that fridge, but it would be a shame for it to get scrapped if perhaps there's an easy resolution to its problem.

It's the church that's replacing it, isn't it?

Rex/Ralph - the fan may not be broken at all; I read somewhere on, that the fan stops and starts as the door is opened and closed. Not sure if this is one of those types.

She's just showing off the kitchen in the basement of the church; nothing said about replacing the kitchen. She's a member of the church, helping to prevent this beautiful fridge from being scrapped.

Good-hope that nice kitchen isn't replaced-esp that neat fridge.Would be a sad sight to see that nice fridge go to the krusher.-and esp since it still works.If the fan stops when the drawer is opened-than it must be OK.Then the fan wouldn't be a worry.
