It Works After All!

Under the category of “Who Knew?” (which is a very large category as far as boats and I are concerned!), I present to you:

The Gaggenau Oven

Basically, it hasn’t worked since we got the boat…I rather suspected it was operator error as opposed to anything really wrong with the oven itself (we don’t have a manual and I’ve tried unsuccessfully to acquire one), as everything else about the boat is so ship-shape. But the former captain couldn’t figure it out either, so I resigned myself to not having an oven and just working around that. It just wasn’t getting power and we didn’t have any electrically oriented brains on board.

Yes, well, hrm….I should probably not even post this as it’s just a bit humbling, but since my job is to entertain you people out there, I’ll give you the reason it wasn’t working.

Wired directly to the generator. That simple. It’s 220, there’s not enough shore power, but if you fire that genny up and flip on the oven breaker ~ bam! Works great. Flashing electrical display comes on, voila!

I now have an oven on board.

    Good one.Though a little inconvenient to have run the genny just to bake a cake or whatever.

    ROFLMAO…oh that is a good one. And way to go for figuring it out – all by your lonesome!! I’ve been working without an oven on the floathouse too, funnily enough. It is propane however and I almost thought I had it working the other day…
