My builder had supplied us with the cheapest Whirlpool electrical range cooker

4 ring burner (not a flat top one)


Retail price $650 to $700 + taxes

My question is: What is the life span in years for this electrical cooker range. It is being used once per day and I have used it for close to 13 years.

Question: At what stage will it pose to be a fire risk to me?

How would I know that the range is now a fire risk to me?

That depends the builder range which was given to you when you bought the house has lasted 13 years which average out to about 50 bucks a year, why do you think its a fire hazard.

What maintenance have you done to it over the last 13 years. If you are concerned about go buy another one. My parents 4 ring stove has lasted over 40 years
