i think the manufacturers set a timer in appliances to break down shortly after warranty expires lol!

my cooker and extractor fan has gone kaput

it was supplied as part of a brand new house and ive rung them up to tell them but they said warranty ran out couple of weeks ago! ( 2 year period)

i suspect a expensive repair, me thinks 2 years for a brand new house is a bit short no?!?!

the lady told me to contact the manufacturer direct which they only gave 1 year anyway

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH gotta starve tonight lolz

surely they didnt both break at the same time?

I presume you have done the obvious and checked circuit breaker / fuses

unless possibly they are one item...although you dont find many which have built in ones very often, but ive seen a few.

i feel for you...my fridge/freezer broke 26 days outside of warranty. Luckily i'd covered it so claimed off that.

electric cooker I presume lol?

plug into wall may have had the fuse blow - take plug apart and replace

check fuse box (under stairs?) - cooker one may have blown

Is it? I doubt that I would be buying the same brand of an appliance if it breaks down after a year and two weeks

tell me about it i've had 2 printers (bought same day) both break today and have replaced the faulty component (transfer belt) only to find that the damn things have a usage counter that once its target is reached displays the "replace transfer belt" message and still displays the same message until a utility is run to remove it (CLP-300_Reset_RLCv04.exe) but i can't find the damn file anywhere. i will never buy samsung again
