Possibly, what's the history on this unit? Is it a known leaker? Was it previously owned by someone from the government? Those are known leakers.

Mayer, Government owned refrigerators are known to leak? I don't work near a base, but that's good information to know. I'm curious, what's the reason for that?

Mayer, that's funny! You got me with that one! :) I had a blonde moment. :)
