China Menaced by Exploding Refrigerator


An exploding refrigerator which blasted a hole in a brick wall is the latest object to menace China with its unexpected self-destruct functionality.

Chinese news reported the impressive devastation it caused:

The refrigerator was apparently made by LG, a South Korean company, although whether it was actually manufactured in Korea or China is not clear.

    was the refrigerator in question ACTUALLY made by LG Electronics, or El-Jee, aka random Chinese ripoff factory stealing the name?

    And before you make jokes, this sort of thing is ENTIRELY common in China, even still. Take the infamous NEC case in 2006- an entire fake factory distribution chain, run for several years by pirates.

    at this point, it doesn't matter anymore if the product was made in china or not. if it's IN china, it'll explode. just give it time.

    Sidewalks can explode and implode, but rarely do both at the same time.
    But don't walk in the street, cause a car will hit you, then back up over you to finish the job, which you had better pray it does, because if you're still alive you'll get to lay there until another car finishes the job...

    07:02 China is the worlds largest scab. And just like scabs, they steal work from others. Then turn they around and look for other exploits, like illegally reproducing copyrighted works, espionage and extortion.

    Wow, I think China has taken the cup away from the US for being the most ridiculed. That right there is some achievement.

    Those make it safely to America, the Chinese are keeping their population down, while making us pay money for 'decent' products.

    I remember a story a few years back written by a German engineer who designs high end laundry equipment.

    His company had just released a new washing machine. It was designed to be very quiet and almost vibration free. Not even a year later, he sees a Chinese rip-off of his design on the market with the exception that it was loud as all hell and would walk across the floor during the spin cycle.

    People seem to forget that Japan was just as bad back in the day when it came to copyright infringement.

    Tbh, I wonder less about the brand of the refrigerator and instead ask;

    Does this say more about the refrigerator or the wall?

    hmm.... seems suspicious, could be the wall exploded, and the poor refrigerator did it's duty and shielded the family from certain death... and like the Boss from MGS3 it will be remembered as a monster, when it died a hero.. lol.

    given a glance at the damage, its a propane or natural gas fridge, thus gas line, if installed properly these fridges are safe, china standards well, they may need to add a new clause to warranty "if accessory parts made in china warranty void".

    The fridge decided to commit suicide since it couldn't stand living in a Chinese residence.

    that's... racist.

    There are actually a lot of good whiteware companies in China that sell high-quality products cheaply.
    Granted, a lot of companies in China sell crap products, but the companies that have evolved to selling good products haven't made cost-cutting into an art yet.
    Western refrigerators used to last 25 years a few decades ago, now they break after several years.

    "Western refrigerators used to last 25 years a few decades ago, now they break after several years."

    Blame Korea & China for that, til they started muscling in with significantly lower priced goods, reliability was never an issue. Now brands like GE produce the worst pieces of shit imaginable. [Never liked GE anyway.]

    That said, I'll only buy major appliances from Samsung & LG. Their shit tends to hold up nicely.

    No, we did see that "China menaced by exploding explosives truck" story awhile back, though I guess explosives are not necessarily bombs.

    And now look at the back of your monitor or mouse or keyboard or whatever and look for where it was manufactured.

    No one is safe anymore.

    Oxygen is needed for a lot of those big, fiery explosions to occur and China has lots of it.

    If a Chinese person buys it, it will probably explode.
    If a Chinese person sold it, it's probably poisonous.
