Yeah our old fridge would give a big clunk and die noise every time the fan would complete it's cycle. It did this for a long time before it finally died. Months! Looking back at it. When it died it gave no warning. It was lucky we discovered it when we did because we were able to save our food in time. You would be wise to start your fund. Last fridge we bought was 17 years ago and I worked hard to find one in stock to take home on the spot, very important at that time. This time we were able to wait for delivery, that is most likely what you would have to do. Few places have stock on hand. Expect up to a 5 day wait, to sacrifice food, and to eat out. I actually would wait til it died though because it will work fine until it dies. By the way we do have a trusted appliance repairman and we did consult him first for the possibility of repairing it like we have our washer and dryer, this time it just wasn't going to work and he told us that and said to get a new one. That was a free consult.
