Facts & Tips
As far as safety, electric ranges do not rely on gas flames, which could potentially initiate a fire. Also, if a pilot light goes out on a gas range, the room can fill up with toxic and harmful gases, which are unsafe to inhale. Many electric stoves come with a light that indicates when one of the burners is on and hot, warning those around the stove not to touch the surface.
It's 9 PM on Saturday night. We were not getting any electricity to our tankless water heater or our solar system. We tried resetting the circuit breakers, the GFI socket, reading the manuals, the Internet, You Tube videos and it still didn't work. We called family & friends for recommended electricians, no luck there either. Finally my wife went to one of the phone books we normally just throw away and called Safe Way when we saw the "No overtime for night,weekend or holidays". The technician on the phone walked me through several actions over the phone. He said he'd try to help me before charging us to come out. It worked! And no charge. Safe Way will get our business from now on; hence this recommendation. Call them!
