Customer Question

I have a caloric gas stove I bought 10 years ago. I never had a problem with the stove at all. Yesterday my husband was making a pizza in the oven when he was done we were eating in the living room. We herard a big crash. The glass broke out of the oven. Nobody touched it and it shattered all over the floor. I dont care how old it is I think there was a defect why would the glass shatter? We wre lucky no one got hurt.

Is there anything the company should do?

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
being 10 years old no. do you remember where you bought it? you can try contacting them but i don't believe they (if they are still in business) will help. you will either have to pay to have it replaced or attempt to replace it yourself unfortunately,
