My last entry mentioned my non-working oven and my desire to attempt to repair it myself. Well, just call me Mrs. Fixit. I tried to bill DH but he just laughed at me. I went on-line Monday evening, figured out the part that was not working (I had a pretty good idea already cause the same thing had happened with a previous oven) and ordered the part. I was also pretty proud of myself cause I shopped a couple of appliance parts websites and found it on sale for more than $20 less than at other sites. I ordered the part standard shipping since I was unwilling to pay them the big bucks to guarantee next day or 2 day delivery. Turns out I made the right choice cause it arrived Weds. and I only ordered it Monday evening. I installed the part tonight (after hunting down my tools which DH had borrowed and not put back where they belonged) and I now have a working oven again. Yeah! I figure I saved myself at least $100.00 for something that was definitely a necessity around here.
