Common Oven Issues
When one of our appliances breaks down, the first thing we do is panic. However, in many situations, the problem turns out to be a rather easy fix. Whether you have a gas or an electric oven, we can repair it. Here are some of the more common oven issues we’ve seen in our decades of experience here at Top Shelf.
Not Heating Up Properly
If your oven is not heating up to the right temperature, this could be the result of several things, including the heating element, temperature sensor, or, if you have a gas stove, the igniter.
The best way to diagnose this problem is to check each of these things. For instance, is the sensor touching the inside wall of the oven? It shouldn’t be. This can damage the sensor, which means you’ll need to replace it. If you have a gas stove, is the igniter working? If not, then you need to replace it.
You can also use an ohmmeter to test the functionality of the sensor. If you’re not sure how to use one of these, there are some videos on YouTube you can check out, or you can call us here at Top Shelf and we can help.
Not Turning On
If your oven refuses to turn on at all, there are two obvious things you should check:
- Is it plugged in? It might have come unplugged at some point.
- Did the circuit trip? If so, flip it back to reset the power.
If, however, your oven is receiving power, there are several reasons why it may still refuse to turn on. For instance, in an electric oven, you may have a bad control or wire that needs replacing. In a gas oven, on the other hand, the problem may be related to a faulty part. In either case, you may want to consider calling in a professional to take a look.
The Light Is Out
Another common problem for ovens is that the interior light sometimes goes out. This is an easy fix. Just like your car, your oven has a specialized light bulb that can, like any other light bulb, burn out sometimes. This problem is actually relatively easy to fix yourself. However, if you feel uncomfortable doing so, you can always give Top Shelf a call for help.
If you’d like to tackle it on your own, though, follow these steps:
- Take off the bulb cover, typically by turning it counterclockwise.
- Take the old bulb out by pulling it straight out.
- Replace the old halogen bulb with a new one, using a dry towel or gloves to handle it. (If your skin’s oils touch the bulb, this can weaken its lifespan and, in some cases, explode.)
