How long is an oven supposed to last anyway? I have a Kenmore range that has been here since the house was built in 1993 (we have only been here 3 years). The stovetop started acting up a while back - it is gas - and then the problem mysteriously went away after a week or so. Very strange. Well now for the last 2 days it is taking twice as long for things to cook in the oven as it should. I am afraid it is on its last leg and I am trying to decide if it is worth it to call the repairman ($70 minimum for the service call plus whatever labor and parts would be) or if I need to start looking for deals on a new one. I don't even know what a new one costs since I have never bought one new. Blah. The dang repairman was just here last week fixing my 3 year old dryer. I have the worst luck with appliances.
