The oven from hell

I've posted about our Fisher Paykel oven and its problems before.  Our intrepid and very good service man worked diligently to diagnose its problems.

It had intermittent problems all through August and September.   Most of the time it wouldn't heat and I would end up trekking my food across the street to use the neighbor's oven.  It was so bad this week I fantasized about taking a sledge hammer to it.  Oh, how satisfying that would be!  Smash, smash, SMASH!!  I also considered an exorcism because it seems possessed by demons.

On Thursday Steve, the serviceman, worked on it again and found ANOTHER manufacturing defect.  This is its third manufacturing defect.  The first time it was wired incorrectly.  The second time it was a connection that wasn't properly crimped.  This time it was a wire that wasn't very well attached.  The loose wire was causing intermittent failures.

I won't trust that it is fixed until at least a month goes by without a failure.   I talk to it and threaten it with the sledge hammer (yes, it is driving me crazy).  It better behave because it is fall and I have lots of things I want to make in the oven.

After the saga you've been through, I would totally ditch the oven.
