Really? My daughter had no problems with hers, and it was so great not to deal with one more thing at moving time. (But we live 3,000 miles away so this may be less of an issue for you.) She also moved into a single for Spring Term in May, and didn't have to move that fridge. She just used the one the prior girl had left in there. She used the microwave all the time, too. She is on a team, so it was great to heat things up late at night after the Commons had closed.
