Customer Question
We have a whirlpool...

We have a whirlpool oven (Mod GFE461LVS) that has a problem heating to, or retaining, a specific temperature. Basically its acts erratically and needs to be repaired.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 9 years old. The model number on the tag is GFE461LVS. What other information can I get for you?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not particularly.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I'm guessing that this should be repaired by a qualified service technician. I supposed that I could do it, but I have other things to do.
