I had a shade break after about a year. Upon checking the other closely I found another one about to break. It is a real PITA to restring one of these things. I saw no point in repairing something that, by design, would continue to fail. I replace ALL of the blinds with Levolor blinds. Problem solved.
My water leak at the refrigerator was from the water heater which is below the refrigerator. Water was coming in around the outside seal. I had to remove all the screws around the water heater mount, pull the water heater out about 2 inches, clean out the original sealant, put in a double strip of sealant, push it back in and re-screw it.
