Re: Oven that does not cook properly

Get an Oven thermometer and do some tests. Record the oven temperature at each one of the settings. Report this to the regie.

You can get a cheap one at migros or coop.
We couldn't find one in migros/coop so we are ordering one tonight. Really great idea thanks!

As per the table on mieterverband.ch, a gas-oven has an assumed lifespan of 15 years.

I.e. if it breaks after that point, the landlord cannot claim "excessive use" and must buy a replacement without increasing the rent.
Thanks! We have sent this table to the rental agency to see what they say before we do anything else.

Gas ovens can easily be cleaned without special equipment.

We really donít want to try to clean it ourselves as we donít know what we are doing. If we mess around with a gas cooker and donít put it back together properly we could have a gas leak and that would be worse.

Greedy landlords that just want money and give nothing. Move out
That is exactly what frustrates me - they will happily take our money but not put any money back into the place. The rest of the place is quite nice but the kitchen is rubbish and we live walking distance to our work. We have looked elsewhere but without paying alot more it seems that most the kitchens in our area are old. We would need to get into a new build which is pricey and harder around here. We are hoping to stay here whilst we save up for our own place.

Thanks for all the information so far - it has been really useful for us.
