With a recent battle still fresh in my mind http://appliantology...er-not-working/
I decided I needed to add another tool to my arsenal......

Picked one up from Homedepot....the salesman showed me one with a 1/4 in npt fitting but it only went to 100 psi and I read somewhere that some fridges can accept up to 120 psi. This one has 3/4 hose connection and you have to buy reducing couplings and some plumbers tape. I called my plumber and asked him if this meter was okay. or should I get a commercial grade one..he said it was pretty good and some of the local plumbing shops sold it as well....for less than 12 bucks it aint gonna break me... I may borrow my plumber's meter just to test accuracy.

Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.
The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist
"When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth; unless it's your compressor or motherboard." Mr. Spock as an appliantologist
"I think, therefore I have no earthly idea why this thing is not working...I got nothin'...". Rumored to have been uttered by a frustrated Descartes while diagnosing his GE Profile.
