Dispute: Oven malfunction after h/w guys used the circuit


Quote:
=bhennon;638214][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]The only thing that I did to my car was put gas in it, so that MUST be the problem with the battery. Doesn’t seem rational right?
but there is no logical connection between your battery and putting in gas. There is a logical conslusion between having exposed energized electrical wiring and a PCB that now malfunctions.

If you want to use a properly analogous situation, feel free but so far your scenario is not even close.

Here is something a bit closer.

you drive your car through a parking lot that you see has nails spread across it. When you wake up the next day, you have a flat tire. Now, the logical conclusion is you got a nail in your tire from the parking lot that prior day.

Now, think of the nails and the energized electrical supply and the tires as the circuit board.

Well, what the contractor is saying is “the only thing they did was hook the electricity back up to the stove" if that was the reason for the fried board then a brand new one would suffer from the same issue
the problem is: that does not include the possibility the people that had connected and disconnected the power previously had accidentally shorted the power supply to the appliance. You seem to skip the actions of the floor guys in your scenario.

It is a tough situation to be in since there will be no way to prove one way or the other what the actual cause of the failure was but simply hooking it to power (properly) is an unlikely root cause although removing it from power and re-hooking it could have been a catalyst for an issue that was probably going to happen anyway.
that's actually funny because nobody, including the OP has ever said that simply hooking up to the power and reconnecting it to the appliance was ever the cause of the problem. The possibility the actors had accidentally caused a short circuit is the action that would have caused the damage.

Dispute: Oven malfunction after h/w guys used the circuit


Wow what a can of worms. Since I know nothing about circuitry I guess I don't really deserve a say, and I don't mean to stir the pot further, but why did the floor guy have to take the oven apart to get power. How would they have operated their sander had the job been in, say an upstairs faraway bedroom? No one can say for sure whether the appliance was about to fail or not, but since they took it apart, and were unlicensed to do so, and then failed to put it back together ......

They didn't take the oven apart. They accessed the 220 V circuit powering the oven -- it was below the oven, hidden behind a drawer, accessible through a panel. Apparently it is common practice. What is uncommon about this incident is they didn't return the circuit/panel and oven to their original state.

The contractor acknowledged that his flooring subcontractor was unprofessional in the way they left the wires. He had the circuit board replaced and the oven is working again.
