Today I came home to find the front door open with a giant fan pointing outside running at high speed and an unbearable burned plastic and some other hard-to-identify stench hit my nose in greeting!
I walked into the house with a semi-scared ‘hello?’ The oven fan was on as my husband rushed around while carrying out a melted object. Short story – one of my little ones stuck a DVD (Chicken Little to be exact), with cover and all into the stove (without our knowledge – OK, that might have been a little obvious but I did not want you think that we allowed DVDs in the stove or approve stove as a play area). When my husband started warming the oven up to bake something the DVD and its cover melted creating a noxious stench and ruining the stove.
I/we have cleaned and cleaned, and cleaned some more. Second attempt at heating the stove resulted in a similar situation where we had to open all doors to get rid of the toxic stench.
Is the stove doomed? Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? If yes, have you been able to clean your stove successfully? Or, should I be shopping for a new one? Any and all feedback would be appreciated.
Hope you are all well and knitting with a smile.
