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.
