Free: Hot Point Fridge / Freezer (Pill Hill Lake Merritt) Withdrawn - Greetings, This fridge is only 6 years old. Cosmetically it is not in "new" condition, but in actual out-of-the-box NEW condition. No cracks, scratches or dents. It has been spotlessly cleaned inside and out. So why am I giving it away? It stopped working completely about two weeks back. Ecologically I prefer to repair than replace. I hired an appliance repair technician who replaced numerous parts related to the temperature and condenser controls (both thermostats, relays, switches etc.) He was able to get it up and running, but now it will not shut off, which turns the entire unit from a fridge / freezer to a full freezer. The repairperson returned but could not figure out what was wrong. I have decided to purchase a new fridge from Home Depot and in the process they will haul this basic white fridge/top freezer to landfill or some form of recycling. I am a big re-use person, so it would be great if someone out there can give this "broken" unit a new life. My suggestions are to try and fix it, or get it fixed, to perform as intended (keeping in mind that I have already had quite a few major and expensive parts replace). Or put into a garage or onto a patio as a full freezer, the top being for foods requiring deep freeze (below zero) and the bottom for food that prefers gentler freezing (10 to 20 degrees). Of course you could not let it run continuously (motor/compressor burn-out and a crazy high PGE bill), but you might be able to use a daily around-the-clock digital timer. I do not know what the exact schedule would be, but something akin to 15 minutes On / 45 minutes Off. (like most regular combo fridge / freezers). The fridge is free. The only stipulation is that you have the ability to haul a large appliance safely and professionally down from a second story apartment to the driveway (approx. 25 steps and one turn landing). Also, there is a deadline. Home Depot is coming next Thursday the 4th to deliver and haul away, so if you are interested, it needs to be no later than next Thursday AM. Please see attached pics for condition and model number. Please run the model number in the Home Depot website. It will come up as discontinued but will provide all the specs and manufacturers information you may need. Feel free to call Paul Thanks for listening and your consideration. And Happy New Year!

Free: Finished kitchen counter top (Pill Hill Lake Merritt) Expired - This is a Scavolini counter from Italy, already beautifully designed and fabricated. It is completely finished all around (3-sided aluminum edging and under-framing for counter top mounting). The sink hole is cut for a double-wide over the counter installation. The counter is white, and of a material that claims to be impervious to stains and damage. The size is overall 8' x 25.5". The sink cut-out is 30" x 18.5"and is positioned 26.5" from the left (short) side. Considering it is already fabricated and finished this counter would be best for a new build that has the flexibility to be designed around it, and installed without cutting (like an ADU). Otherwise a professional table saw could shave off either side as needed to fit. We bought it with this same idea in mind but never got the opportunity to make the ADU. If interested please feel free to call or text Paul at 510-499-2056 Should fit in the back of an average hatchback or a sedan with fold down back seats.
