Question about Roper Kitchen Ranges
Hello, welcome to fixya ,
I understand the problem.
Do not let the owner, try to blame you.The problem is the landlord !
Most landlords say this to the renters and will never want to spend a nickel to fix or god forbid replace the range with a new one for 25 to 30 years.
What is the model # of the range.
Here is a report that I recently read.
You can tell him this was in n consumer report!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old range
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your range is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
7 or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a range you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
