Fix it or Ditch It? Kitchen Aid Oven/Stove
Our recently purchased home came with a Kitchen Aid Superba oven and stove. The former owners renovated the kitchen 4 years ago and I assume that is the age of this appliance. The control panels are all touch sensor under a piece of glass. The "off" button is not working, nor is the number "5". I am happy to cook at 440 instead of 450, but not being able to turn the oven off is a big pain, not to mention dangerous. Sometimes it takes me 10 minutes of trying until I can turn it off.
I looked up the problem and it is about a $400 fix. Is it worth it to fix this problem, when there is nothing preventing it from happening again. Or should we purchase a new oven/stove?
A new purchase would not strain our budget. Thankfully we have the money right now. It just seems like a waste to get rid of a 4 year old appliance. Then again it seems like a waste to spend $400 on a fix, that could break again.
We are first time homeowners and have never purchased a stove/oven before. I don't know how much it would cost to get a good one that has all dials on it and no computer panel. We don't need something over the top but will pay to get a reliable appliance that works well.
