Amanda-brand perfectly functioning refrigerator was unplugged in preparation for cleaning and including in sale of house. It was unplugged only 2-3 days, but now when it’s plugged back in it won’t start up. Any idea why this would happen? Is it destined for the junk yard?
Other than the headslappers (was it also turned off at its internal thermostat, and you forgot to turn that to cold when plugging it back in?) it does sound like it inconveniently chose right about now as a time to expire. Do verify that the outlet itself has power, under this heading.
I would negotiate with the buyers regarding the knocking off the value of a fridge evidently near the end of its life as an adjustment in closing, allowing them to select their own replacement fridge, unless you have some local requirement to sell the house with a functioning fridge.
