They quickly followed thru.
Maintenance looked at it 2 days later, pronounced that a new thermostat should set it right.
Imagine my surprise when the following day a knock at my door produced two men with a new range. Evidently the new thermostat was going to be an outrageous price so they gave me a new range instead.
Its white so it matches the fridge. This one is a Whirlpool instead of a Tappan.
Its first use proved the top burners are working just fine and fast. If the weather cools down in the next few days, I will christen the oven with some chocolate chip cookies.
Have a good day.
