Two ovens and fridge

This oven is not very easy to user;

The hob in front and to the right does not work.


This is best oven to use;
The movie shows how to light the oven.

Food Processor
The large red food processor is not reliable so it is not recommended.

Fridge - Freezer
Fuse box for the fridge/freezer
The fridge and freezer have a security system to prevent frequent opening of the door. As a result the doors are locked shut for a minute or two after they are closed. Do not try to force them open immediately after they have been opened
