The freezer repair guy was supposed to come back tomorrow and fix the freezer, but guess what? The parts never arrived and they aren't going to. They can't get them. So after spending a half an hour on the chat feature trying to track things down, Frigidaire gave up and is shipping us a new replacement freezer...if they can find one.
They won't know until 5 to 7 business days have passed. That's how long they need to look across the United States and Canada. This process has been long and frustrating and I don't forsee it getting any better, really. This has taken months and I just really want our money back.
I am assuming if they can't track one down they will finally give us a refund. At this point I think I'd just prefer that, so we can get a different freezer. I am actually leaning towards another chest freezer than an upright. We have room for it if we take the mini-chest freezer out to the garage. Based on our history, I now feel like upright freezer's are more trouble than they are worth.
I let the hog lady know what was going on. I've kept her in the loop every step of the way. But we could be looking at a really long time, even if they locate one here, because ground shipping is difficult right now since 30% of truckers have quit due to the vaccine mandates. And if they try to get one from overseas, well, that could be forever. The barges are piled up in the harbors with not enough people to unload them since the teamsters union is fighting the mandates also. What a mess.
So who knows what will happen? My life, as ever, is in limbo. At least I have found a relatively unexpensive source of good bacon. If I can't get my hog any time soon, then at least I can still find the best part.
