Re: What have you just bought?

It was sparking then the oven would not go higher than 60.
Maybe I was a bit fast in buying a new oven tbh.

Re: What have you just bought?

2 packs of sugar from Poundland (1.65kg for 50p, an odd size) 65p/kg in most shops, but only 30p/kg in Poundland.

Just found a recall from last year when "small particles of metal" could be in them. But not the batch numbers they are selling now.

Re: What have you just bought?

When the element goes in ours it's pyrotechnics time: Bright yellow glow, then frying sound and finally blue flashes. Then the fuse goes. It plugs into a standard 13A outlet.

If your electrics include an RCD (Earth leakage breaker) it usually knocks the whole house out rather than the fireworks.

There's a panel at the rear held by some screws, remove this to inspect the element. It's usually pretty obvious when it's gone.

Re: What have you just bought?

Going by what you said Heero it defo sounds like it was the element yellow glow, frying sound and the oven would not go above 60.

One thinks that maybe I was too hasty in getting a new oven

Re: What have you just bought?

Well can't be helped. Hope you didn't have to spend too much on a replacement.

If there's a next time you'll know and can ask here. That's if we're still around.

Re: What have you just bought?

Not as much as last oven this one was only 207 and that was including delivery as we did not want to spend crazy money atm as we don't know if we will be staying here tbh as at the moment we're in discussions about either down sizing, buying a brand new home or moving to a coastal area.

Re: What have you just bought?


Similar to that... this one comes with a 40 Sanyo which is getting sold and Im putting a 43 LG in.

Bed has usb charging points and headphone sockets also has 4.1 surround

I think Ill work from bed from now on 😂😂

However, returning to more mundane spending... pair of curtains

I use hardly any either. No tea of coffee for over 35 years. This lot is for my homebrew beers.
