Mazy's Prairie Mischief and Adventures

FINALLY WE HAVE SERVICE.......

Sitting in our kitchen was a fridge that needs repair.
A month of this and we went to Sears and bought new
appliances. The sale during the 4th of July. Then we
waited for until the 12 for delivery.

Shiny new stainless steel larger refrigerator and a
gas convection stove. Problems should be SOLVED....
NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The fridge worked fine and were happy there. Except
the steel finish will require a lot more daily cleaning.
We were looking for a better finish that wouldn't chip
like the old appliances.

STOVE-Gpa changed the natural gas jets for the propane.
Followed specks and made adjustments to burners,
broiler and oven. SHOULD HAVE BEEN, GOOD TO GO?

Started the oven to burn factory finish off.....
Never saw an oven go from 0 to 400 degrees so
quickly....Then flames were shooting out the vents
of the oven! Shut everything down......

Around Gpa's haying,he worked on the stove for 3 days.
Called all the numbers on the Sears extended service
warranty. Played automated and human phone tag.
Curse words burnt my little ears! I hid in my cave.

Last Sunday was 100 degrees....off they went,100 mile
trip to see Sears people.(A day they needed for
other work) They were promised service....Tuesday,
Gma called the store and told them: if, no service
before this Monday 23....

Put them on the delivery list for country...Come and
get both appliances. Gma bought them as a pair,with
5 yrs. of service that was extra cost. If Sears
couldn't provide the service they paid for..then they
would shop somewhere else. The extended warranties
were for the $300 mileage that 1 trip costs. Plus
parts and labor......

If she had to put her limp along stove back in...
She wasn't having a white stove and ivory compactor
and a steel fridge. They couldn't believe it!
It was the value of 3 yearling steers...A lot of money
for Gma to spend. Sales person said, why the fridge?
Gma said, bought as pair....If you can't provide
service for the stove,then how can you service the
fridge? You use the same people for all appliances.

Bright and early Wednesday morning Gma has a call
from a contractor east of her.(Not Bismarck area
and the same number of miles to her house).. He would
service the stove. NOW SOMEONE WAS LISTENING TO HER!

She had told them, she wouldn't lose her garden because
of a stove she couldn't use......The guy from Jamestown,
came right away ...he worked on the stove. There was stuff
that needed to be done that wasn't in the information.
There was a tiny bent spring in the stove......This
controlled all the settings in the oven and stove-top.

Gma has used the top now for blanching and freezing
produce. She has baked beer bread with the convection.
Made banana cake with the regular baking. Roasted
a marinated pork tenderloin and sweet potatoes
with roasting convection.Regular bake for stuffed
peppers with carrots and stewed tomatoes. We have
Tested the food warming area in the bottom.
Going to do soft,chewy,bakery style chocolate
chip cookies with convection baking today.

Will have to test all features within 60 days for
our satisfaction money back guarantee. We want to
know everything works as it is suppose to......
We have to try the broiler and the cleaning system
too....The repair guy looked at our old fridge,
told Gpa what 2 small,cheap parts to buy. Told him
how to repair it. He said, it's in GOOD shape,but
you wouldn't want to spend $300 mileage,plus parts,
plus 4 hours labor. Would be more than original
cost. The old fridges in basement are 35+ yrs. old.
They are used for extra grocery,garden produce and
beverages.

ON TOP of our heavy workload, this was the HEARTBURN
at our HOUSE.....Both Gpa and Gma were very Crabby!
It was HOT HOT and more HOT with the weather....
Both of my peeps are working outside everyday!
I tried to keep a low profile,cuz nobody wanted
to play! SURE GLAD THIS HAS BEEN RESOLVED!
I WAS GIVEN EXTRA TREATS TO PACIFY ONE UPSIDE
PRINCESS OF THE PONDEROSA......

HUGS AND KISSES,
MAZY

OMD - Mazy! What a nightmare the new stove proved to be. This has momma worried because the humans bought a stove for the New Mexico place while daddy was in California this last trip and he hauled it to the New Mexico property when he left. He did make sure it was propane compatiable but after reading your diary today momma is worried that something like what happened to you maight happen to us. Keep your paws crossed that everything goes well.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

MISS COCO- THIS WAS ALSO PROPANE COMPATIBLE...BUT THE OWNER HAS TO DO THE CONVERSION.... OR HIRE SOMEONE, IF THERE IS SOMEONE IN YOUR REMOTE AREA.........THEY ARE VERY TOUCHY AND TOUGH TO ADJUST TO JUST WHAT YOU NEED.....SAYING PRAYERS,NO NIGHTMARE FOR YOU!
KISSES,MAZY

What happened to customer satisfaction and service! Glad the stove is finally working and your Gma is smart to make sure everything is working properly. My Gpawents lived in the country and everything was more expensive to get service, etc. Glad you got extra treats and when our momma is in Mrs. Crabby Pants mode we head for cover!

cuz we live in the country an extra $100 just for a delivery.......

Anyhoo.........over $3,000 with 5 yr. service contracts in that package.

There goes Gma and Gpa's trip for their 40th. anniversary....

Gma will be using her present,which she bought herself with her steers. Gpa will be eating what she fixes......

I like it! I don't like to be away from them! Only 1 night in 5 years, have both of them been gone at the same time.......

No Vacation for them...Yippy for me! later,mazy
