T. E. hired to be and for a year or two years to do the same thing I was a spokesperson for them in regards to the energy plans they have for consumers now gold back forty years I am the guy who sat down with bold consumers energy and D. T. and worked out that plan for them now it's much different than what it was back then now I'm playing eagle game here but I was very involved and that's why I ended up I was doing the applied doctor show and all that stuff but that's why I ended up working for them now to this day I still believe and I know there are people who say well I'm I yeah look at all the cost all this much money and so forth look at you have a furnace motor change and it's a six hundred dollar bill easy in your furnace things can be very expensive so the money you involved in these plans which is not all that much when you he gets start opening a coffee can and just pouring money in there every month every week or every day but their plan takes care of you with qualified people I might add they're all screen they watch every service call let's done they make sure the service industry takes care of you and an ethical fashion well I am still a big believer in those plans through our utilities and I feel we're very fortunate in Michigan that have that because it's not spread across the country great so I just thought I'd pass that on I know there are some people will complain about it that that's normal okay but it we have it and we're fortunate to have it and in my way of thinking it's a big money saving thing especially for the elderly who don't are not capable of doing changing the blower motor on the furs and doing some of those states but those people do a terrific job well I'm one of the elderly Joe and I sure appreciate your opinion on this thank you on the thanks for thank you for allowing me to both stiff it want to call it that okay very nice of you thank you sure take care Mary Ann joins us this morning from Auburn hills good morning Mary good morning it's very nice to get on I tried to get on yesterday you did have someone on anyway I have I have a Westinghouse freezer that I've had since nineteen fifty two who and I'm sitting next to it and it and it does make a lot of nice it just went off just as we came on so I can't I can't tell you what it sounds like but it makes a lot of nice heaven defrosted it in a long time what should I do about it to keep it I it's still going after all the six sixty eight years I got a forty two so cool refrigerator in my basement and a fifty two G. at the cottage our work like a champ and the amount of the energy well let's put it this way if you had a new freezer at a cost you fifteen dollars a month operator on the let's say the average that one you have is probably cost you need three dollars a month which lasts I willingly so much the last it's on first of all the metal is much thicker there's more insulation in there it weighs a ton compared to the new products today but it's made with old fashioned American quality you're fortunate enough to have that now I'll ask you about the noise okay does it make a rumble sound are a banging sound when it shuts off the boo boo boo boo no it's a more of a rumble I I that that that that kind of yeah yeah okay you see the compressor in the back underneath it's mounted on these rubber mulch just like a car motor is mounted in an engine is mounted in the frame of the cards got a rubber mounts to cushion the Noyce those rubber mounts lose their contents consistency this self can they they replace or what well you sure they can be returned must they must they be I don't you know when I used to do what I always had a chunk of car tire in my little tool box I just take that and I Graham and underneath the compressor and I don't know if I can I mean I I I will be able to reach it is used in a corner you sent somebody to help you but okay just one way I know of to get rid of the excessive noise ana refrigerator product well okay I don't really care about that I was just telling you about the noise I don't really care about it it's down the basement in a corner and it doesn't matter I just wanted to explain it to you that's very nice of you to call me with that question or comment is or anything that that I should be doing else what about the frosting how I haven't done that in a long time well a long time is what a couple years yeah IRA that's too long this frost is too thick yes said hugging shelves okay yes and so now you're not getting the cold to the food because the frost is too thick and that makes it work harder at that age the compressor hotter and that makes it louder all leading to that does defrost that they open the door put a fan in sub somebody just send me a nice email and I said look at even the frosted you can put a bucket of hot boiling water on the shelf it take a hair dryer this sudden those ladies and why did you just put a fan on a chair in front of it and let air circulate in there the important thing is when you're to frosting of treated like that you should wait until it's completely dry inside take a tall white but completely dry then take a fan hair dryer and make sure it's completely dry before you plug it back in meanwhile you take the food out you put it in a box but a blanket over the box now with the cold temperature it is here you won't have any problems okay so no big worry on that none okay and I will have many hours total is this thing of all take do you think take the what to do the whole thing in our.
