    Hi everyone,

    I just bought a brand new oven which was to have only a minor scratch on the handle. It's a Ariston OS99, which normally retails for NZ$2770, but I got it for NZ$995, because of the cosmetic flaw. But when I got it there was also a dent on the side of it. What I want to know is, could there be a issue with, i.e. insulation being squashed? Peaking through the holes in the outer casing, there doesn't seem to be electronic bits in that area, just insulation. I don't want to burn my house down because of improper insulation (it's one of those pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens that cleans at 500 degrees Celsius.

    This isn't really a question, so I've
    cross-posted to and set followups there. If it
    isn't on-topic over there, they'll be able to help, anyway.

    How big is the dent?

    Thanks Phil. And sorry, I'm new to this side of the groups.
    The dent is about 3/4 inch deep and about a quarter of the size of the sideof the oven. I'll try to post a picture to the other group.

    Assuming it's fibre insulation and will recover if the dent is fixed
    call one of those "paintless dent repair" services.

    Their equipment is portable, so they can come to you.

    Why don't you drop by your friendly local body shop and have them work
    the dent out? They specialized (at least some do) in getting out
    dents like that. Several techniques - heat gun and ice, working with
    a ball-ended tool from behind, induction heating, etc - can be used. I
    wouldn't think it would cost over $50.
