Back to something Lizzie said at the top of the page, about her seven cubic foot refrigerator; I don't know how many cubic feet mine is (I'm at work, 57 miles away from it), but it is a GE Monitor top from the early/mid '30s. I bought it when I bought my first house in 1980, for $160. It was in pretty good shape, intact, it worked, the glass drip tray was in it. The vanilla ice cream-white exterior paint was a little mottled when I got it, but most of that polished out with some automotive rubbing compound and wax. 1980 was 37 years ago. When I bought it, I just wanted a cheap old-timey fridge, but I never dreamed I would have it so long. I have never owned a newer one. I did, however, receive a gift of a SECOND one, which also works (but had been painted turquoise with a brush), for the garage. The turquoise one is also a double-door one with a much larger coil on top. These refrigerators are absolutely amazing. They are both almost silent. They start with a tiny click and run so smoothly you wouldn't know unless you put your ear near the motor. When they stop, they give another faint click and a little shiver. They are both dependable as sunrise. The tag says they use 1/3 hp motors and they use a negligible amount of electricity. Anybody else using Monitor tops?
