I wouldn't read more into it than it deserves. Unless it's a top of the line modern electronic gee whiz fridge, it hasn't got much of a control circuit. All of them I've seen consist of a slow-turning motor that closes a contact for about ten minutes once per cycle, usually about 8 - 12 hours. It's mounted on the back panel, so it never gets the dust bunnies vacuumed off since nobody wants to drag the fridge out from the wall. that either clogs up the bearings, or causes the motor windings to overheat over time. the cheaper the motor, the shorter the time to failure. Simple economics, not planned obsolescence...
I've just completed about 8hrs of solid coding that involved tearing into the guts of my code, touching about 20 modules, ripping out a component and replacing it with a different (3rd party) component whose documentation is of the "documentation is Evil" variety, plus a bunch of refactoring and configuration changes and the first time I ran the code it...just...worked.
Isn't that the best feeling in the world. It's like everything stops, and everything is perfect just in that moment.
