Today I started to clean my upper oven which is a mess because the seal is broken. I decided that I should take the door off of it and find a place that can fix it. Just bringing it over to them, would save me money. It's just the seal, so even if they won't actually do it for me, they can then see exactly what part that I need and explain how I should go about doing this myself. It almost looks as if it had stretched or the last time it was replaced was maybe to long.
Of course I then needed to figure out what tools I needed to remove the door. One thing always leads to another. Memories of what my husband did in the past are a huge help.
So off into the garage I go to find a rachet gizmo that'll fit. I wound up bringing in a case with, at least what I think are call rachets, but the case had water in it, some were getting some rust on them.
So for the rest of today, I have emptied and cleaned the case, still working on the numerous mixed up parts to clean and organizing them, adding some w-d 40 to them. I started off using alcohol and q-tips because I figured the alcohol would dry quick and not cause more rust. Then tried rubbing oil into them. I am almost done, then need to find the one that actually fits the darn nut on the oven to remove it. I've got a container to put the parts in so they don't get lost.
If there's a handy man out there, please advise me to anything else that I should know about.
Thanks in advance, Linda
