Man’s cell phone turns on stove
A New York man said he discovered an unusual and unwelcome feature of his cell phone -- it turns on his stove.
Andrei Melnikov said his Maytag Magic Chef stove beeps and turn its broiler onto the highest setting if his phone, which he has had for about three years, receives an incoming call while within two feet of the appliance, WABC-TV, New York, reported Tuesday.
He said the stove is currently unplugged and Maytag has agreed to send a repair crew to get to the bottom of the problem.
