Brian you do indeed look cold - but happy
(are you watching a screen by any chance instead of looking into the lens?)


for me: an outtake from yesterday's day prime:

"a little lumpy"

a7, rokinon 8mm, in-camera "illustration filter medium"
(apparently the 2 second timer doesn't make sense as an option in this mode )

My 12 month old oven has been broke for over 3 month now.
After 18 phonecalls, 5 visits of the repair man.. today finally they would change it into a new one on warranty.
The brought a different one that does not fit.
They blame it on the kitchen installer.
In the mean time while trying to force the oven into its place - they broke an isolationtube of the electricity of my electrical cookingplates.
They took the non fitting oven with them and I still have the broken one.. now with whatever risk of the cookingplate going into malfunction.

I AM SO VERY PISSED... !!!!

I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Hi Jet,

Sorry to hear about the serious aggravation with your oven! Broken thing always make us unhappy, but more so when they are expensive appliances that we need for our day-to-day lifestyle. Just be thankful that is not something really important -- like your camera!

It is a personal pet-peeve of mine when items are sold without proper service support -- meaning competent repair technicians and the necessary parts. I'm assuming one or both of these are at play here. Remember this when you make your next appliance purchase -- both the manufacture and the retailer that sold it to you should get a black mark! (or if you prefer, a red or at yellow card)

So, I assume the retailer involved was trying to replace the oven with a different model oven, because they were unable to repair the original. They have to know the specs/dimensions of the oven they sold you, so if the new one was not the same dimensions, they are at fault, not the kitchen cabinets or cabinet installer. Also, forcing a larger oven into the given smaller space is inexcusable, so IMO they should be held accountable for any damages.

The isolation tube you mention is what we would call an electrical conduit. Its purpose it to protect electrical wires from idiots like your repair/install people. If the wires and the insulation on the wires are not damaged, you should be safe to use your cook top. If they were shorted together you would have a circuit breaker trip. But just in case, don't be touching any wires in there without flipping the breaker open first!

Regards,

Kelly

Thanks Kelly for your reply.
It is a combination of a lot.. and it is probably going to be solved.. but the time and energy that I have to put into it to get it done is frustrating. And till now without any results.

Brian is relatively OK, but the following 3 selfies of AE may have some members wondering what is going on in the Dyxum team.
