    Default NEW Kitchen stove!

    We were finally able to use our new kitchen stove last night! We've been cooking with an electric skillet and the microwave for a couple of weeks. I've gotten pretty good at scrambling eggs in the microwave! Plus eating a lot of sandwiches and using the outdoor grill. So it was wonderful to fire the thing up last night.

    We bought it Saturday at Lowes (....!!!.....). Because we use propane it had to be fitted and altered to burn that fuel, and Lowes did not offer to do it. The salesman told us "You just screw these things in...." yeah right. Once we got home and started to read the directions on how to change everything over it was obvious that it was going to require someone with more expertise than we have. I'm not thrilled with that salesman -- he also told us the broiler was in the oven -- its actually in the little drawer in the bottom.

    Our propane dealer would not do it, so I ended up calling an appliance repair place and they did the job -- for $54. But its worth it to me to know it is done right and we won't blow up. Plus, he changed out the feed hose and found out that the old hose was not done properly -- another one of the swell "gifts" from the previous owners.

    Anyway, I've got my new stove and it will be fun to cook again!

    Enjoy your new stove. We had a similar experience with Lowes and our stove. We had a cooktop and he said you just drop it in and plug it in. Well no it wasn't that easy. We called an appliance person also and our gas line wasn't up to code and we needed an adaptor. LOVELY.

    It's not very comforting to know Lowes doesn't seem to care if they blow families up.

    We bought our dishwasher from Lowes several years ago and the salesman at that time was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would have recommended them in a heartbeat after that experience.

    Yes, its too bad they have slipped up in their "customer service".
    Suppose it would do any good to complain?

    Jean congratulations on your new stove.

    btw - it always does good to complain. Go to the manager first. If you don't get any satisfaction, go to the top. They need to be made aware of the danger they are putting their customers in. There are huge lawsuits in our country over propane/gas mistakes. Make them very aware of that. They are playing with lives.
