Our oven/hob was on it's last legs (stats didn't work and half the elements were dead or dying) and was faced with replacing it, mucho cash I didn't want to part with, too much to waste time on spare parts.
An add appears on a local board, barely used double oven with halogen hob, free as fan not working. 2 minutes away so I grabbed it. Took the fan motor out (full of gunk from cooking roasts and such) freed it, cleaned it, a little lube and all back together in 20 minutes.
Installed the range and there we have a completely FREE, bright sparkly cooker that works like a dream!
This would have been scrapped if they had a big enough car to move it, so what have you salvaged from its 'end of life' which is about a year it seems for most things nowdays!
