The Magic of The Internet
Written By: Gary on February 1, 2008
The Internet is truly magical:
7:00 am – Stove catches on fire!!!
7:05 am – It’s just the heating element for the oven (I was warming my plate for breakfast), as soon as I turned it off the heating element disintegrated.
7:10 am – I’ve found the model number for my stove (I’ll need this).
10:00 am – After 5 minutes on-line I’ve ordered the part from the GE.com web site.
1:36 pm – Part arrives via FedEx.
6:30 pm – I look for the right size socket (10 minutes later I find it).
6:40 pm – Five minutes and two screws later, I’ve got my stove fixed!
This is not my area of expertise in the least but this looked pretty simple so thought instead of waiting for a repair guy I could do it myself. I saw the part on-line cheaper, but I wasn’t sure they’d ship it fast, I knew GE would get it out and not have to order the part from somewhere else. Total $79.14 shipped overnight!
I guess I could have looked local but I didn’t have to spend any time looking for this part or calling anywhere so this really worked out for me…
