    11 June 2012

    I bought my range about 4 1/2 years ago, and loved the top burners. I tolerated the oven design--it was spacious enough, but I was used to an electric convection oven, and this gas convection feature didn't bake as evenly, which is a factor when you bake bread. I figured I could live with that. Then, last year, the oven's computer touch panel started to become glitchy. In October, it stopped working entirely. After calls to several reputable repairmen, who told me, "Sounds like a computer problem. We don't do computers," I found a very good repairman who diagnosed it as, yes, a computer issue. It seems the HEAT FROM CLEANING AND HIGH-TEMP COOKING HAD FRIED THE TOUCHPAD ELEMENTS. This was because the touchpad computer panel was on the front of the oven, right above the door, he told me. I had him replace the touchpad--which was a long and complicated process, and which cost me roughly half the original purchase price of the full unit. And it was good--for eight months. During which I did not use the cleaning feature. It is now mid-June, and the touchpad is again dead. I have a clock, and the dual timers. And a dirty oven. I tell people I have the most expensive timer in the world because, to my knowledge, Catherine the Great's gold peacock clock doesn't have a timing feature. My old repairman is not answering my emails; I think he's hyperventilating in a closet somewhere, praying I just go buy another stove. I suppose I will, since the computer panel hasn't spontaneously regenerated--but it won't be a Jenn-aire.
