Lokring tool Maybe in your Future Soon
« on: April 22, 2019, 06:38:53 PM »

There will be a manufacturing change to some Whirlpool refrigeration products which will occur in September and October 2017. This change will impact Side by Side and Top Mount refrigerators whereby the copper heat exchange will be replaced by an aluminum one. This change means that almost any sealed system failure on these models will require Lokring tool.

I predict that unless they drop the tool price **way** down, Whirlpool will have a surprising lack of sealed system service availability.
