Frequently Seen Oven Repairs

When it comes to residential ovens, stove tops, and ranges repair, there are several reoccurring themes we commonly remedy for our customers, including:

  • Jammed Oven Doors - When the oven door becomes stuck closed, it’s likely due to a misaligned self-cleaning latch or a faulty oven control or clock.
  • The Oven Won't Self-Clean - When the self-cleaning system is not functioning, it’s often caused by a damaged self-clean latch switch or function selector.
  • Faulty Broiler - When a gas oven’s broiler is not working as it should, the broiler igniter or valve is often the culprit.
  • Insufficient Temperatures - When the oven’s temperatures are unregulated and unpredictable, it’s usually a result of a faulty bake oven igniter, temperature sensor, or damaged selector switch.

When My Oven Stops Working, What Should I Check First?

If your oven suddenly seizes to work, there are a few things to inspect. First, be sure your oven is receiving power, as even gas ovens require electricity to operate. You will also want to verify whether your oven is heating when turned on. If it’s not heating, you are looking at a new oven igniter or temperature sensor. Additionally, checking to see if your oven door is properly latching is important.

Why Isn’t My Electric Oven Heating Properly?

If your electric oven is not heating properly, it’s likely due to a faulty temperature sensor. A temperature sensor may fail to work when it touches the oven wall. This can sometimes be a simple fix as the sensor must only be re-calibrated to restore function.

What Should I Do with a Broken Oven That Can’t Be Repaired?

If your oven has been deemed irreparable, you may wonder what to do with it. It’s important not to toss your old, broken-down oven in the trash and instead recycle it with the EPA’s Responsible Appliance Disposal Program. If it’s still working and needs minor tune-ups, but you’re set on a replacement, consider donating your old oven to a Goodwill facility or Habitat for Humanity.

How Do I Check If My Oven Temperature Is Right?

The most effective way to verify your oven’s temperature is right is to hang an oven thermometer directly in the middle of the center oven rack. Next, you will need to heat your oven to 350 and leave it on for approximately 20 minutes before checking the temperature of your oven to see if it has reached the desired 350 degrees.

What Does It Mean When My Gas Oven Burner Is Not Lighting?

If your gas oven burner is not lit, it’s likely a result of the flow of gas being obstructed by either food or other debris that may have escaped from cookware while cooking. Try cleaning your burners before trying to light your gas oven burners again.

What If My Electric Oven Is Not Working, But My Stove Top Is?

If your electric oven fails to work as it should or will not turn on, but your stove top is working perfectly fine, you may be facing an issue with the broil element in your oven. This requires oven repair to remedy the issue, and Mr. Appliance of El Cajon can help.
