This one has bugged me for years. How come they can't make a window seal that holds?
I'm talking about oven door windows and house windows. My stove is a little over a year old and already the seal has broken and ugly streaks are running down between the panes of glass. When I bought the stove, I asked for a stove without the window but the saleswoman said that everybody wants the windows. They didn't even have any windowless ovens in stock.
So here I am with the leaky oven door window...again.
The modest condo I live in has four windows and a patio door, all double-pane sliding types. And, every single one of them have broken seals with streaks and/or clouding. Several of them have been replaced but didn't last long before the seals broke again.
I think the main reason it bugs me is that the stove and windows never look clean. When I have guests or host my writer's group, I feel that it makes me look like a slob. Now, I actually am a slob but when I have company, I make a supreme effort to conceal the fact. Those darn windows give me away.
What am I to do?
