Yet another question for handy types
My oven (electric) has decided that it's not going to work. Every time I turn it on it blows a fuse. It used to do this occasionally before, but if I turned off other appliances it would be fine. But literally every time I turn the dial into the on position, all the lights in my apartment go off and I have to flip the fuse.
One of my friends suggested that it might be because I need a wattage adapter? I don't know. I'm totally clueless about that stuff. That might make sense since I'm sure people in my building are using a lot more electricity now that it's colder. I called the maintenance guy in my building, but he laughed and said he had no idea what to do with an oven. My landlord is similarly unhelpful. (Ovens are really very uncommon here)
Thoughts? I don't know what the wattage is like here, so I don't know if anyone will have any ideas, but I thought I'd give it a shot...
