    The tenant has complained some of the hotplates not working.
    Had the PM send me a qoute .
    Second hand Bellini 60cm incl installation $478

    But wants to put a new cooking top on..which is second hand.
    I guess im going to have to say yes...even though it probably only needs two hotplates fixed ?
    When they say "cooking top" do they mean the hotplates too ?

    Recently Bunnings had a sale on Bellini cook top & underbench oven for under $1K combined. I think it might still be on.
    Even if it isn't I would not install a second hand cooktop (4 x plates).

    Yeah i agree .. But it says 12 months warranty .
    Do they actually change the knobs too or just the hotplates?

    I think the knobs are on top and the writing has faded .

    Looks as though i will have to get it done though as its a cooking problem.

    I am not sure about the quality of Bellini, but usually Westinghouse is what is recommended . You should be able to get a new one for about $430. They all are made with stupid weird plugs now and Electrician are needed to wire them, it may cost about $60 or a $100. They can have a limited life, I wouldnt spend that on a 2nd hand one. buying once is cheaper than buying twice, it may be better to pay a bit more and get a ceramic top so water does get in and eventually F it up. They also look better are more appealing to tenants and buyers and easier to clean. They are made in different sizes so you will need to get an exact measurement, which may affect what one you can buy. 60cm may be the top with the overlap but the part that goes in the hole can be different sizes.

    If they start playing up it can be cheaper to just put a knew one in, than pay an electrician to come and fix a couple of times then have too replace it anyway , how old is it if it is near 10 years old it is probably nearly stuffed and needs replacing anyway.
