The consumer says the porcelain was flaking and rusting in the bottom of the oven. The retailer referred him to the service dept. His question was that due to the flaking of the porcelain was it safe to use? He was told not to use the self clean feature. The manufacturer also told him that it would be safe to use. A technician was sent out via the manufacturer who said that the bottom of the cabinet has collapsed and its making contact with the heating element. The manufacturer told him the unit is not repairable.
