|mr. kenmore's coil exploded|
so what exactly happened? it went like this: preheat oven to 300. as i whipped up batch #2 of my chocolate pavlova pie hearts, i saw a bright flash in the room which was followed by a sizzling noise. i turned to see what caused the flash behind me and saw a bright light coming through the window of the oven door. it was so bright that it reminded me of a welder's torch! the coil had a hot spot and it blew and it was in danger of starting a fire. with a yell of four letter words and cry for help, my husband came running with the fire extinguisher. luckily, once we turned off the oven and unplugged it from the wall, all danger subsided and reality set in-no pie this week...we made the decision to replace rather than repair because we have already had it repaired once-a stove coil did the same thing not long ago and it also required new wiring where it had blown the connection. we have had this oven for going on 8 years and decided that with the workout it gets from two professional chefs, we would just replace it and hope for the best.
the dessert that almost wasn't
so how did i spend the afternoon that i normally use to make a pie? with the rest of the girls:
look for me to be up and running asap! i'm going out to look at stoves today!!!
