Oven repair - costs and facts

The cost of electrical equipment often depends on the brand and the equipment. So even an older oven may still have some value if you want to sell it or have it repaired. But the prices, which are called for some repairs, doubt their meaning. So here are some tips to help you with a repair.

The Negotiator

Cost estimate

No matter how small the damage seems to be. You should never leave an artisan without an estimate on your oven. You can not overlook the costs that can come to you. If the estimate seems too high for you, you should get at least a second prize.

Alternatives - Spare Parts

Often there are identical spare parts that are not from the original manufacturer, but at a fraction of the cost. Ask the craftsman concerned if the seal or heating element is also a so-called no-name product. Often the parts are actually from the same manufacturer anyway.

These prices are just examples that other customers have mentioned. Sure, there are also nice serious electricians who demand very humane prices that are far below. Unfortunately, some repairs can be made even more expensive by unusual designs of the ovens. For example, the replacement of a defective pane of glass is not worthwhile in many ovens, as in the worst case, it even exceeded 1,000 euros.
