It seems like the most ridiculous stuff happens being a pizza shop owner. I was already stressed this weekend after being really short staffed Friday and Saturday. I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with 2 hours left in my shift on Saturday and a day off on Sunday. Prepping a take out order when I see a flash of light come from under my oven and the thing powers down.
After firing up the backup oven and finishing the order, I start investigating. What I found was one of the pulleys on a blower motor had slipped off the motor, hit the wiring harness for the motor exhaust fan just right which caused them to tangle around the still spinning motor and shorted out the oven. It looks like only one of the motors is damaged and I can limp it out a few days until I get a replacement ordered. I wish there was a way to do this without equipment or employees, I’d be a lot more sane.
