LBX6-41B
I rescued an old General Electric refrigerator and installed a new power cord (with a ground) since the old one was rotted. Guess what, it works! Really well actually, and all the shelves seem to be in there. The weather stripping is rotted away but it shouldn’t be hard to add more. I think the model is LBX6-41B?

Does anyone have any information on this refrigerator? Is there anything I should know about it, any do’s/don’ts? Is it worth anything? Is it a power drain? I was thinking it would make a cool garage/beer refrigerator if it doesn’t use too much power.

Is there anything I should know about it
Looks like a 1939 - 1940 model. You can find universal door gasket material online. Keep in mind this is an old refrigerator and any parts you might need are no longer available. Used parts can be found online but it might take a while and a lot of searches.
any do’s/don’ts?
When it comes time to defrost it, don't use an ice pick or screwdriver. The wires are probably very brittle. If you don't need to move them around, don't.
Is it worth anything?
Yes, completely restored to factory showroom conditions. As is now, it's an old used refrigerator $75 - $100.
Is it a power drain?
Of course it is. It's a 70 year old refrigerator. How big of a power hog, I couldn't tell you. Compare your electric bills after a month. It might not even be noticeable.
