Last week I identified that the grinding noise coming from the 22nd floor fridge at work was not the ice maker, it was the fan. Which proved to sound Distinctly Wrong even when it wasn't grinding.

An urgent visit from a repair tech ensued, wherein first he was skeptical that I had correctly diagnosed the specific thing (he believed that I had heard a sound, but clearly deals with householders who "know everything" a lot), and then impressed that I could have heard the fan over the (entirely normal) racket of the beverage cooler next to it.

The repair cost was $340. On Monday when the tech replaced the fan, he said it was very close to failure. The fan failing would cause the other bit to overheat and fail. That would have been a base cost of $1200 to replace, not to mention emergency markup and the cost to replace spoiled food.

I am apparently awesome.
