Google FridgeBack in April of 2006, Google began sending out Google Fridges to some of their larger advertisers as a thank you. Well, I am now seeing reports via WebmasterWorld that those fridges are beginning to break.

I got the Google Fridge about 1.5 years ago, and the damn thing stopped working! the power cord still works, but my fridge aint getting cold anymore. I love this thing...how do I fix it? I'm assuming sending it back to google for repair is not an option:)

He is not the only one. Senior Member, Poster_Boy said, "of the 5+ fridges that I know of via various colleagues... all have broken."

I guess that is what you can expect from schwag that is a fridge. To be fair, Google did send out more Fridges last year and if you really need a new one, you may be able to buy one on eBay. We bought RustyBrick Fridges for clients last December and they are currently still operational - I wonder when they will blow up.
