postheadericon Oven / Stove Repair

Household ovens are either run by gas or electricity. The oven is usually the first to break down compared to other home appliances. That is expected, considering how the oven is used and how its temperature is made to fluctuate from high cooking temperatures to room temperature many times a day.

Examples of common oven manufacturers are GE, HEIL, Silverline, Ferre, and Brelect.

An important safety tip if you want to inspect your oven while troubleshooting it is to unplug it from the power outlet (if it’s an electric oven) or to turn off the gas (if it’s a gas oven). Always wear safety glasses and keep your hair and clothing away from the oven’s moving parts.

Have you noticed any of these common problems with your oven?

The oven is taking time to heat up or cook the food than what you’ve been accustomed to before.

The top burner does not heat up.

The oven fails to bake or broil.

Handy Troubleshooting Tips for Common Oven Problems

If the oven takes time to cook the food and get to a certain temperature, then you may want to look at either the heating element or the igniter. In an electric oven, a damaged heating element may be the cause of the problem. When it comes to a gas oven, the culprit of slow heating problems is most likely the igniter. The igniter is easy to replace if it’s defective, but it is difficult to diagnose should it cause the slow-heating problem. It is the same for replacing a damaged heating element in an electric oven–a job that is best left to a professional.

If the top burner does not work, check for obstruction and food debris. This is one of the reasons why you need to clean your oven burner regularly as food debris is much easier to clean if it is fresh. If you have an electric oven and it does not turn on, then check for a blown fuse, a tripped circuit breaker, and the voltage that’s coming in to the oven.

Failure for an oven to bake or broil may point to a defective igniter, thermostat, selector switch, or gas safety valve. Calling a professional appliance technician is the wisest thing to do at this point. You can describe the problem, briefly outline what troubleshooting you’ve done, then ask for a quote for getting a service technician over.
