The fridge ice maker was finally repaired on Thursday of last week and has been producing cubes at a gratifying rate. Yay Sears and Kenmore.
The wall oven, on the other hand . . .
I turned the oven to self-cleaning mode today (to prepare for Thanksgiving, doncha know) and watched as it heated up, ran for about five minutes, and then gave me a code meaning something is wrong with the locking mechanism. Now, a while back we spend about $300 replacing the latches on this door as they’d somehow gotten bent. I was told “never rest pans on the door when it’s open,” something I never have done nor ever will, not when I’ve got a countertop I can reach by pivoting on one foot. The reason we discovered that was that I couldn’t keep the door closed while trying to clean it. When those latches were replaced I ran the self-cleaning function without any trouble, and I’ve done so a few times since, I think.
Now, 10 months after replacing them, I’m getting the same kind of alarm, and I know damned well I haven’t bent the stupid latches. Fortunately we added the thing to our annual maintenance agreement, so any repairs will be free. Unfortunately it’s Thanksgiving week and I’m sure the first appointment I can get to have a tech come is in mid-December.
This is tiresome!
