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).

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

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

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.

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.

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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

Bump, just because this is my favourite thread of all time. grin

Well at least you're honest about the zombie thread resurrection.

Of resurrection is in keeping with the religious spirit of the thread.

I had a car that was resurrected twice (post write-offs). I always said if it happened again I would start worshiping it.

I often find myself thinking about this thread, in quiet moments of the day. Thought it deserved a fresh audience.

�� I'm crying, I woke my DD laughing at the not circumcising the fridge part. Never thought a religious fridge could cheer me up so much!!

"It's not the Messiah, it's a very naughty fridge," has to be one of the funniest posts I've ever read on MN.
