we bought a 12 cu ft white westinghous/electrolux, no frost ref about 3 years ago. i remember when my mom and i were inspecting the model unit at sm, i was concerned with the gasket. it looked pretty worn and the door didn't close properly. my mom and the sales rep dismissed it saying it's a demo unit so it wears and tears more than a home unit. so what the hey, we bought it.
3 years later - yep, the gasket is worn and the ref doesn't close properly anymore. to think we don't have any kids in the house and we are by nature not brusque with appliances.
this is our 2nd ref only and compared to our old GE unit which lasted for more than 20 years - let me just say that maybe we should've bought another GE unit instead.
