At our house we live with two dogs and a crazy German barn cat.
Jackson the gooberhead Golden retriever
Last week my wife called and said she'd heard a bang in the kitchen and then smelled what she thought was gas. Did I want to check it out? YUP. Gas Company came right away (thanks NW Natural!), unable to locate. That evening we noticed the refrigerator wasn't cold anymore so we moved all the food out into the beer fridge in the garage and called for service.
This is what we found yesterday. This is the "motherboard" that tells the frig what to do and there should be two of those round black cans to the right of the copper coils. Usually when a component fails on a circuit board it just stops working. This time it blew up. That was the bang and the smoke. Wow.
