No, you see i thought what wiv you being a spark and all and maybe doing warranty work for C*rr*ys
and them selling Hotpoint dryers with the self incinerating switches on them well maybe they'd started making ovens as well but it's not that at all, so now I know..

No don't think so had my fair share dealing with public in there homes
At least I have coffee on tap in every shop and the staff are great as they are always happy to see me walk in the door because they know what'evers broken I fix it nine times out of ten on first visit be it ovens dishwashers air con refrigeration fire alarm panels emergency lighting so the list goes on every day meeting great staff and a verity of workload. Great job one of the best I've had Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

You're a lucky man BJS having a job that you enjoy. Repairing domestic appliances must be a mixed bag, I know my wife won't have a Hotpoint washing machine because she had one years ago and the tub split. Crazy, illogical, she would happily buy Indesit or Creda made by the same company. we've got a Samsung right now and we were getting the tub filling up with waste water so I called the service centre who advised me it would cost £99 call out fee plus the actual repair costs if it wasn't the machine at fault. So I checked things out and found when Currys delivery people installed the machine they didn't have the drain hose routed high enough so the machine was drawing waste water back in. Quick reroute of the hose and fitted a bracket to hold it & no more trouble.
