Just an update, in the spirit of full disclosure.
We had the plumber out to take a look at the leak behind the refrigerator. We have a home warranty contract, so all we had to pay the plumber was $55, and the home warranty folks kick in the rest.
Well, the problem, although a plumbing one--as AssCrackCarlos called it--was also a refrigeration problem--as NotAssCrackBob called it. It seems that when the refrigerator was installed they didn't put the connection from the water supply onto the refrigerator correctly. they was something involving clamping, pressing, crimping, a build-up of pressure.....it all sounded too sexual to me so I got lost in a day dream.
Now, because it was an installation issue that caused the leak, the home warranty people do not cover that. I paid $55 to be told that the $55 won't cover it. Carlos, being the one of the two of us who likes to barter finagle and swindle, called the people who delivered the fridge to get them to cough up the repair costs. They, in turn, said they had installed the fridge nearly two years ago so they are not responsible--this, again in the spirit of full disclose was exactly what I said they'd say.
So, the plumber came out and did the repairs. New tubing; new clamping. One-hundred-twenty-five-dollars-for-ten-minutes-work-so-how-can-the-economy-be-bad?
We're all caught up now, m'kay?
