I recently purchased a fridge off gumtree which turned out not to be working. I didn’t try it out as soon as I purchased it as I was still using my old one and now the seller has moved overseas so there is no recourse there. I did try calling him and he insisted that it worked, so not sure if it got damaged during transit but I doubt it.
The problem with it is that it doesn’t get cold (both freezer and fridge compartment). I left it on overnight to test it out.
I’m not sure now if I should get it repaired (if it costs too much then I probably won’t bother). I have spoken to Samsung, the manufacturer of the fridge and they have advised me of their preferred repairer in Fyshwick. I contacted them and they are quoting over $100 for a call out then $33 for every 15 mins plus parts
Would it be worth repairing? Does anyone have any recommendations for an honest cheap fridge repairer or should I just resell it on gumtree and hope that a handyman will buy it to fix up? Or should I just take this as a lesson learnt
