Question: A Non Jewish aid living in my home. With Friday night food in the oven, can the oven be left on since her food is in the oven too and have her know to turn off the oven when she’s done eating?

why do you want her to turn off the oven?

It says פירות אוכל.
So my understanding is the the vc (and poison ivy) berries are poisonous, so it shouldn't be an issue. Unless the definition of פירות אוכל is not clear cut?

I usually keep my food in the oven but I turn the oven off right before shabbos. I don’t need the oven on after Friday night. My food isn’t as hot obviously by the time I eat….

So the question is being neheneh from the non jew turning off the oven on shabbos and avoiding paying a higher bill which you normally wouldn't have without the non jew and the additional enjoyment of having hotter food friday night b/c you know the non-jew will eventually turn it off?

I originally wasn't sure if the question was shabbos (bishul or amira leakum) or kashrus (bishul akum or taaruvos) related.

correct, a shabbos question, not a bishul question. She would turn on the oven herself and turn it off to warm up her food if I wasn’t using the oven, the question is if I can take advantage of an action she would be doing anyways which is turning off the oven

(I think of it as using her as a timer, my oven doesn’t have one)

Is it ok to open a refrigerator with this alarm on Shabbos if you make sure to close it before the alarm time?

Follow up question: What is the plan if the alarm is triggered? Leave it open all shabbos?

I think there are other issues and you may need to block the sensor.

you don't need to stand there the whole shabbos, you can walk away and allow it to close.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

FWIU from Rabbi Ribiat 39 Melochos (Vol 1 pg 66-67) it would be an additional benefit and therefore regarding amira leakum (non jew doing it for themselves) permitted (food was hot and enjoyable now is only hotter and more enjoyable). Although as always AYLOR.

Some refrigerators have this built in. On mine the Shabbos mode deactivates it.

I think there are other issues and you may need to block the sensor. you don't need to stand there the whole shabbos, you can walk away and allow it to close.

"Other issues" referring to what?

"Allow it to close" - presumably if the fridge door closed by itself the sensor would be unnecessary? Unless the sensor also closes the door after X minutes?

I'm not exactly sure. I believe there is an issue with the sensor affecting the deicing cycle

Ah yes that would be an issue where it's built in. OP Product seems to be external separate product hooked onto fridge door - you think it affects the fridge's internal de-icing cycle?

I didn't open the link, I thought he was asking about a built in alarm

This is problematic for your oven/dishes from a bishul akum angle

Not if it's just reheating edible food.
