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).

If it sprays you with water it is a Catholic fridge

Sorry, update. Rattus here. Have name changed accordingly. It hasn't celebrated the Sabbath since, which is a sadness and a relief in equal measure. Toaster still Baptist tho. hmm angry

Am I the only one wondering if the fridge went all religious again today, and last Thursday?

All good electrical appliances express a wish to get into silicon heaven.

Anyway, I already suggested that! The fridge could be a girl! Silly! grin

But circumcising the fridge won't help, poppa rob, as it's been established that it's not Jewish

Sorry to be so late to this, but some fridges have a plastic tube that runs down to the drip tray for condensate to run through. The warmth of the compressor evaporates the water. Perhaps get your scissors out and snip a bit off the end of that tube?

It's not the messiah, it's a very naughty fridge.

Top of this page right now is an advert for Innocent smoothies with an orange wearing a halo. It's suddenly all clear...

The fridge was sent to us to protect the innocents. No longer shall pure and unsullied strawberries be emulsified with ice cubes. The blender is a Satanist! The good fridge's purpose is to protect the meek.

THE FRIDGE IS THE MESSIAH shock

Post sundown update.

The fridge is no longer Jewish.

I'm almost sure this is due to the advice of Katz above (but only when the fridge when into major sabbath mode and the display went dark). However this happened at almost exactly the same time it all kicked off last night - i.e. just after sundown.

Will return next week if it happens again.

Rattus, your christmas name must of course be Freezus of Nazareth

ChrisMsBrian Fri 02-Dec-11 16:06:14

I think you may have my fridge.
You can keep it.

Ha! Just picturing his face! Brilliant!

"Welcome back! In case you're wondering, the fridge is Jewish"

Please stop making me laugh it huuuuuuuuurts! grin

Great thread grin

OP as it's Friday, are you having God and Chips for supper?

huntingforanswers Fri 02-Dec-11 11:44:22

If the sink is tapist, maybe you can get some decent beer from it?

RattusRattus Fri 02-Dec-11 11:34:41

Ooooh classics. Thanks you MN Towers! thanks It's taken me 8 years to get a classic!

Anyway, if your DH is ever away in the States for the week and you haven't seen him from Sunday night to Friday morning I advise you not to open your greeting with "Welcome back! In case you're wondering, the fridge is Jewish". I think he wished he was back on the plane. blush grin

RattusRattus Fri 02-Dec-11 11:16:29

Fridge is still loyally Jewish. I suspect we may have to wait until sundown to find out the extent of its faith. Will update accordingly.

If Rattus isn't back it must be because the fridge is at work saving her sole
