Reply to "For those who layouts are in the basements"

My Sears Cold spot 25cu ft. refrigerator from 1971 died last summer.   Forty seven years of continuous service and the last year or two the door seal was leaking bad I bought a universal seal kit that sealed OK if you pushed it in just a bit but the magnet inside was not strong enough to hold it tight. So the compressor ran nearly continuously.  Part of the problem with new AC, refrigerators and dehumidifiers is to meet fed efficiency mandates the evaporator coil and the condensing coil walls have been made thinner and thinner as this raises efficiency and they use a smaller compressor that runs longer.  Thus the compressor has a shorter life and the paper thin walls of the coils develop leaks both from vibrations and the resulting fatigue and from corrosion, which may have something to do with the quality of the aluminum used.   Aluminum Rot,  is that a word ?          j
