People here were really helpful when I posted about a kitchen re-fit last
month and I'm hoping someone can help me again.
In a flat I let out, I have a two-ring Zanussi hob which you can see here
is fitted into a work-top with a fridge below it. My tenant emailed me
today saying "...tonight as I was cooking I noticed a strong smell and
smoke coming out from between the fridge roof and the base of the hob.
When I looked I found that the top of the fridge has actually started to
melt from the heat that comes from the hob when they are switched on. Both
the hob and the fridge are still working so there is no big damage as
I assume the hob, which was fitted in June, may have developed a fault,
but if not would anyone know if there is something I can put on the top of
the fridge to alleviate the problem - or anything else I could do. There
is very little room above the fridge.
Many thanks in advance,
