A Light Show in the Oven Canâ€™t be Good!
It never fails does it? Just when I thought I was going to manage Christmas expenses along with regular bills, something had to happen, right? Well, instead of going Christmas shopping, I went appliance shopping, but I guess that is Merry Christmas to me!
I was preheating my oven last night when I suddenly saw bright white light flashing off and on in it. I jerked open the door and the bottom coil was shooting white sparks and a flame developed. I quickly shut it off and closed the door.
The coil (it’s an electric stove) is actually melted or broke clear through and there is white burn marks on the bottom of the oven. My son said it looked like arc marks to him. I have never in all of my years of cooking had an oven do such a thing! Have you?
Anyway, a brand new stove will be shipped out to my local Lowes in about a week and I should be good to go for all of the Christmas baking and cooking that this month brings. The new stove is pretty cool, but I sure could have waited a few months for the old one to act up!
