Replacing my Viking range

suburban_mom | Mar 2, 2012 06:46 PM

We bought this house 6 years ago and it came with a Viking range. I was so excited thinking I was getting a great appliance. It took me 6 months to realize the oven can't hold a temp. Fast forward to now. I can only open the oven door a foot. The hinges hang up.

We have plans on doing a kitchen remodel within a couple of years which included replacing the crapola Viking. Now we just hope to replace the Viking now and include the new range in the remodel because we figure the repairs will be more than $500.

The Viking is 36". Can I just go out and get a new 36" range from a different manufacturer? Is there anything else I need to consider?
