Repair Remedies

Now is most assuredly not the time for major appliance malfunction.

The holiday season is in full swing; shopping, wrapping and decorating full speed ahead. Now is most assuredly not the time for major appliance malfunction. But isn’t it always the way?

In a moment of brilliance this week I decided to clean my ovens post-Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas.  I have one of those double oven ranges; both have gotten quite a workout over the last few weeks and were in need of cleaning. So after dinner one night this week I set them to self-clean mode. I found it a bit odd upon waking the next morning that the display was still in locked mode, but thought it would unlock itself at some point after I went to work.

Alas, when I returned home from work the oven still displayed the message that the oven was locked. We called for pizza delivery. Thinking that we had diagnosed the problem, we ordered up a part and resigned ourselves to a couple of days of take out.

The part arrived on Friday and we installed it. The display is still telling me that my ovens are locked. Today I am going to do what I should have done in the first place and call A & M Appliance for a service call.   

In the meantime my crockpots and rice cooker are standing at the ready.

Here’s a surefire weeknight meal:

BBQ Pork Roast

  • 1 –  3 Lb. Pork Roast
  • 1 – 12 Oz. beer
  • ½ bottle of BBQ sauce

  2. Mix all other ingredients and pour over pork
  3. Cook on low for 5 – 8 hours
  4. Slice and serve
