My father made the mistake of putting something in the oven that ended up melting half of the yellow stirrer cover/shield*. Rather than argue with him about whose fault it was I have opted to take care of things myself this time around
. I have two questions:
1. Will the damage affect the oven's performance?
2. If enough plastic melted so that a hole was made in the cover does that pose any risk to the internal components?
I haven't turned the oven back on since it happened and have cleaned as much dirt and debris from the damaged area as possible. I have already located the replacement parts through your website just in case I need to make any repairs.
