Well were just cooking dinner spagetti and garlic bread when a loud sound like " someone being electrocuted" and a BOOM. I ran in to check on hubby he was cooking and the top burners were on fire and the bottom element as well. Im am so glad no one was hurt Im thankful he wasnt right next to it he was at the other end of the kitchen by the table. It did blow a hole clear through my fryin pans. We have had to replace the oven element before. So I guess its time to buy a new one. It has had it.
omg thank goodness no one was hurt. that had to be scary.
Wow...that's scary, glad nobody got hurt!
OMG Thank god he is okay as well as everyone else! That has always been one of my biggest fears, you just never know. Good luck getting a new oven!
I know its crazy you cannot plan on something like that to happen. All you can really have is smoke detectors after its happened.
Fire is my (pardon the pun) big hot button. My parents had 2 housefires by the time I was 14 (neither were their fault .... landlord issues). Glad to hear all you had to replace was a stove.
Good Lord! Thank goodness everyone is fine.
WOW! I've had elements burn out before, but never like THAT, and never a fire ! Thank goodness everyone is okay !
I'm glad all of you are OK. Sorry this happened.
wow thats scary!!!! glad you are all ok and no one was hurt, xcept for the frying pan ofcourse
Glad everyone is OK. I didn't even know that could happen like that. You must have been scared silly. Thanks for telling us.
No wonder it made such a noise, to blow a hole in a pan like that. I wonder how often things like this realy happen. Scary.
Wow! Sorry to hear about it. On the flip side - you get a new oven! My husband set ours on fire last year and not only did I get a new oven, but I got a new kitchen as well (we had been thinking about it anyway)! I am glad no one got hurt, but it can be scary as heck!
OMG!!! That is terrible! So thankful that no one was injured...
What a freaky thing to have happen...thank goodness no one was hurt.
I'm glad you are ok!
How old was your unit? You may consider reporting this to the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission). They may want to issue a safety recall.
Here's the link to report it.
Here's the link to see if your unit is on the recall list.
The manufacturer may also offer you something, so you may want to call them as well.
I guess you can call it old its about 11yrs. But I'm still gonna check out the links Thanks Barbaranne
Oh, 11, that's not too old. I would definitely report it to CPSC. Also, don't throw anything out just yet, including the damaged pans. You may be able to get the manufacturer to to reimburse you for some of the damages. Your homeowner's insurance might be able to help you there. We had damages from a faulty dehumidifier. Our homeowner's insurance paid us, then they went to the manufacturer, and got everything reimbursed. That was good because it didn't make our rates increase. At the least, they may be able to help document things for you.
