    ffs why do things break just outside of warranty period

    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

    the Sale of Goods Act 1979 might be some help to you google it for more info manged to get out of warrenty iteams fixed free under it befor but as it came as part of the house im not sure how much luck you will have n who you would need to talk to about it.

    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

    cooker is gas but ill check fuse

    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
