Has my fridge found religion?

I have a NEFF fridge. It is less than a year old. Today I went to get water and ice from the dispenser and it won't respond and it says Sabbath on the display panel. no mention of this in the instruction booklet.

Is this some fridge religious epiphany? Whilst I welcome religion in any form, I just am rather frustrated by the fridge observing the day of the lord (esp when it's Thursday rather than Sunday).

No idea but muahahahahah, that's ace grin

You misunderstand. The fridge is refusing to work properly until you put on a Black Sabbath CD.

lol weird!!

Sabbath mode is for strict Jews that follow the rule that you can't use electricity on the Sabbath. No idea how to turn it off though.

Very odd, have you tried praying with it? Or switching the little bulb off inside for a minutes silence?

grin Amazing fridge. Does it lock itself during Ramadan?

QueenStromba - hmmm. Thanks for the link. Doesn't look promising from that does it.

WowOoo - it stayed in full working order throughout Ramadam but OMG - it's Advent isn't it, which I believe is supposed to be a period of fasting and preparation before Xmas. Is the Fridge observing Advent then? What's going to happen when it's Lent?? shock

Interesting that we're gradually working out said Fridge's religion. Def not Jewish as it's not Saturday and it seems to be observing Advent. And as it didn't stop during Ramadam then it isn't observing any Islamic traditions. I wonder if it's CofE or RC.

If it's RC can I use my ownership of it to get my kids into the most excellent RC school in town?

bung some loaves and fishes and water in and see what happens.

It'll decide for you what to give up for Lent and won't let you take those things out.

Easy to check whether it's RC. Put some meat in tonight and see if it throws it out on Friday.

I love the idea of playing Black Sabbath to a fridge.

I have nothing usefull to add but to say this has made my day!

You could make your million by chucking a jug of water into it....

If its a Methodist fridge it should turn your wine into water, I think.

I'd call Neff and get them to sort it out before its a year old.

NoOnesGoingToEatYourMincePies Thu 01-Dec-11 19:52:19

Maybe your fridge wanted to use a Christmas nickname just like the rest of us.

CotherMuckingFunticalChristmas Thu 01-Dec-11 19:53:14

Sorry Stealth, I saw 'loaves and fishes' but I missed 'wine'...

<wonders off to find other parties to be late to>

FPMSL - can we have a photo please? grin

Trial by bacon perhaps?

RattusRattus Thu 01-Dec-11 19:54:08

There was water in it already and it's still water sad. Mind you miracles take time and this has only happened this evening.

If I put fizzy water in is there a chance I'll end up with sparkling wine?

You're assuming it's religion allows alcohol though.
