Day 25 - Jan 25th
What is this, you ask? This is the temperature gauge for my grill. We paid $500 five years ago for this nice Weber Genesis Gold C grill. But it's been having a lot of trouble lately - the igniter is stuck, half the burners no longer work. I was considering buying a new one - we just put four models on clearance at FM and they are fantastic prices. But I decided to search online for the replacement parts to price compare to determine: repair or replace.
Except I couldn't find my manual. So I called Weber to see if they could send me an electronic copy or give me the part numbers. And BINGO! When I had purchased the grill, I had registered it with them. And it has a ten year warranty. The only part I needed not covered was the igniter. So for $19, they are sending me new parts to get it up and running.
A LOT better than buying a new grill!
