I was just talking to Ruth and I thought I’d pass on to the rest of you, too, what a repairman recently told my daughter: if you have a self-cleaning feature on your oven, don’t ever turn it on. The motherboards are not protected well enough from all that heat and that’s the fastest way to kill your appliance.

Given that about fifteen years ago I was quoted $800 just for the motherboard for each oven of my double oven, labor on top of that, I’d say that self-cleaning is a wonderful feature that sells ovens.

And then sells more ovens.

Oh, now that’s a good tip! I like the feature, but I also like my oven. Not using that any more! Thanks!

Mine is pretty old and still working fine.

That’s so bad that it almost has to be on purpose, doesn’t it? Yikes.

I use the self cleaning feature of my oven at least once a year, before Passover. I know my mom does too, and her oven is over 20 years old. If you use this feature carefully, once or twice a year, nothing crazy seems to happen…but this is just my experience. My oven is about 8 years old now.

Well this is good to know about the self-cleaning ovens. Gives me an excuse for why I’ve not use the feature in the 15 years we’ve had the house. lol
