My freezer is working as it should. The alarm has turned off and my food is frozen.
I guess the aptitude tests in high school were correct. They indicated that I should be an engineer because I can see how things work. I must say that I am quite proud of myself for figuring out the cooling system problem and was able to take the freezer apart and put it back together again.
This feeling will keep me going for a couple more days.
I got the reaction a expected... no response, except for: "That's good. We still need to get the receipt from Lowe's to register the freezer."
