    This must be the ultimate. I have seen a use by date on bottled water. No I know the world is going mad.

    Did anyone say "Wicks"??? And trouble with them??? Maybe the organbuilder with that name will have something to say about the 'unsavory' associations that now florate in this thread
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    You mean Wickes with an "e"? I use them quite often.
    Cheers MIKE.

    *&%%$*& oven has just blown up. Only 18 months old and not cheap either. Should have had a sell/use by date on it. Now for a drag out fight with the manufacturers over whether 18 months is a reasonable time for an oven to last, and whether it was of mechanisable quality. Probably have to get an engineers report before I get satisfaction. Might have to cook the Christmas turkey over the coal fire.
    Baa, humbug.

    For things like that I think some relevant authority (like trading standards in UK) should define minimum periods for which equipment should operate correctly. Some allowances obviously for how much the item cost and the use an item gets within that period.

    So a more expensive item should last longer than a cheap one, running/operating time should be considered, not length of time since new, except in cases where deterioration over time is a factor ( like metal rusting or corroding when exposed to atmosphere)
    Cheers MIKE.

    Oh no Teddy, that is dreadful. Surely an oven should last a lot longer than that, the guarantee should be at least two years.. I hope you get satisfaction from the company.

    What is there to wear out on an oven perhaps the door hinges or the switches (if manual) was it made in China?

    Its an AEG so should be of reasonable quality. I am in the progress of obtaining an engineers report and then I will contact Which (I am a member) who are usually very good at sorting this sort of thing. Have switched to b&%*%*d mode which I find gives me the energy to tackle this sort of problem

    Now if it had been a gas cooker blow up you would only have to worry about learning to use your wings, playing the harp and keeping your halo straight.
