    We Need A New Oven Says SWMBO

    We don't use the oven much at all during the summer preferring the grill (obtained free 10yrs ago from a friend who was chucking it. I replaced the burner tubes, welded a little and have been using the 5 burner grill since). The better half fired up the oven the other day and was most unhappy. Mr Mouse and friends had taken up residence in the insulation and if you have have smelt that heating you know how unhappy she was. Despite my telling her I could take it apart and replace the insulation it had to go. Hard to do as we got it on a dented floor model clearance for $250 10yrs ago but nothing would satisfy her so out it went.

    Ordered a clearance Samsung at Lowes for about $550 which was half off and used my military discount. It was Stainless as it seems white has gone out of style for some reason. After a week it was in. They loaded it up and back home I went. First thing I noticed is that gravity seems to have increased the older I get as a 200+lb stove wasn't as easy getting off the truck and into the house by myself as it used to be. Second thing was when I took the box off it wasn't stainless, it was black. Right stove but wrong color.

    Well, she is going to find that out when she gets home from work as I decided I wasn't reboxing that thing,loading it up and returning it. I spent the morning changing it over to LP and installing it.

    Wish me luck!

    "Why isn't the new bathroom you promised done yet?"
    " Cause you keep finding other things for me to do on my 1 day a week off"

    Oh, this Samsung is twice the stove the Whirlpool was. Much better built.

    Go directly to the nearest store that sells suspenders, cuz I'm sure you ain't gonna have enough behind left to hold up your britches when she's done with you. Lowe's ain't that far from the house. Corner of Capitol and 98. They sell suspenders too.

    ROFL^^ jsizemore I couldn't help LOLing..

    jonp we had gotten a GE dbl oven from CL that the girl won on Price Is Right for roughly half of it's $2700 new price, I ran some gas pipe and converted the kitchen to gas. About a year later we were sitting there getting ready to use the oven when the igniter arced out and went to welding. Fumes, smoke, lots of sparks and a very loud 60Hz hum and a few pops then it all quit. I ordered a new logic board from fleabay, new igniter, blah blah, and nothing fixed it so I dumped it on CL to the first $250 cash.

    You cannot hardly buy a stove without the same basic Chinese crap board, igniter, it's all the same just a different name on the outside. I hope you got a plain one with just a clock and a light in the oven, it may last a while.

    I ended up buying an American Range (yes made in USA!!!) with a piezo igniter and a convection fan the only electronics in there. I am DONE with the programmable junk.
    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads?

    Yep, they will move right into their new digs. Or 1/4" hardware cloth on the bottom and back. I did my washer/dryer that way before I rebuilt.

    No mice allowed.

    They can have fumes or something in their poop that if it gets in the air as dust and ya breath some of it---- you die.
    FAIR WARNING:
    As often as not, I offer sarcasm rather than advice.

    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    We try to keep the mice under control. Poison, traps etc but I'm surrounded by soybean fields. When tobacco is in they are not bad, when soybeans or fallow like this year they are a plague like the fire ants.

    Good news was she didn't mind the black that much and loves the stove. This Samsung is a beast for sure. Well made in Thailand of all places but night and day to the whirlpool. Much heavier, more solid, controls are smoother. All around better. When I do the kitchen out goes the Whirlpool fridge whose ice maker door busted 1yr in. Buying a Samsung. Rather buy American but not buying junk.

    The Hot Point oven at camp is 50yrs or more old. Runs on a pilot light each side and works like a charm. It will outlast all this modern junk. I was just sorry to see the Serval Fridge go out the door.

    Bought the new house a dozen years ago, renovated the kitchen. New stove was a double, regular and pizza oven. Wife loves it to this day. That thanksgiving, dinner was at the new house. Dinner was a huge affair, both ovens, full. Oven in the toy hauler, full. Next door neighbor's oven, full. Neighbor across the street, full.

    Wife was cooking for the extra family, the neighbors, big affair. Not as much as the 2 families who lost loved ones to 2 separate drunk driving incidents just the day before. I love how big my wife's heart is, and my neighbor's parents, Sandy and Windy are always caring for others. If Windy wants a fancy oven, she needs it. My oven in the other house croaked, simple mother board swap. She bought me a new oven because I bake too when I'm out west. Time to fire up the grill, 10 pounds of chicken to grill and some to shred for enchiladas!

    Nothing is "Made in America" anymore.
    It's "assembled" in America.
    Parts are all made in china or mexico.
    It's a way they get away from paying the tariff tax.
    Sad.

    And the way Americans get to pay 'less'.
