Posted: Updated:


A woman who was living without a working refrigerator for almost two months is finally getting some help after reaching out to News 12.

Relitia Rudd said she had been trying to get her broken fridge fixed under her Sears warranty since June and has been dealing with unusable replacement parts. 

News 12 was there when she received a call letting her know that her brand-new fridge will be delivered on Monday. 

"Until then the only phone calls I have received from Sears was to tell me that they were canceling an appointment," said Rudd. 

Rudd told News 12 that Sears is giving her a maximun of $1,500 to replace her fridge and says she can't wait to restock it.
