Mr Smeg has long been a disaster here but recently the Rangehood extractor fan thingo also went kabung.
Mr H pulled it apart and confirmed he had no idea what was wrong with it.
We would need an electrician and the spare parts from Mr Smeg, but we didn't really want to spend money on that.
The front loader washing machine, my favourite piece of equipment, (washer/dryer combo, self timer, a wash that sterilises things at 90 degrees and also a steamer to save taking clothes to the dry cleaner) well, she is leaking from the front door, this is not good news.
As for the stuffed up dishwasher from Fisher and Paykel, which has already been paid for once in the last 12 months to be to fixed, well it is stuffed again. Works some days, others it wont, so it is pretty much on 24 hours a day, deciding when to start and stop itself, including the moment it started up while I had my head in it - Apparently this was pretty funny for those brave enough to laugh at the time.
But if we can save a penny than Mr H will try and fix things himself. Not always a good thing.
Last night when I got home from work I thought Mr Smeg had been around to fix the rangehood.
But no, Mr H worked it out.
We had to turn on this switch. Hey Presto, the Rangehood works.
