Can You Repair an Electric Oven?
Absolutely. In fact, electric ovens are typically fast and simple to repair since it's a matter of replacing a part. Some of the most common issues with electric ranges and ovens are the heating elements. If not the heating elements, there may be a blown fuse. This is a matter of unscrewing the current fuse and installing a new one of the same electrical rating. If you attempt to DIY a repair, be sure to unplug or turn off power to the range or oven before doing any work.
What is the Life Expectancy of a Kitchen Range?
Generally, it's safe to assume that a range or stove will last 13-15 years. Keep in mind that routine maintenance and regular cleanings help to make the most of the unit's lifespan.
How Long Should a Heating Element in an Oven Last?
On average, heating elements have a lifespan of 5 years. This does fluctuate depending on the state of the oven, which is another reason to take care of the appliance.
What Causes an Oven Element to Burn Out?
If the oven's thermostat isn't set correctly or is faulty, it can cause the element to continue heating up beyond the temperature you intended, eventually burning itself out. It can also happen with time since the oven is continually exposed to high temperatures.
How Do You Know if a Heating Element is Broken?
After the oven has had time to heat up and the element is only partially lit or isn't bright orange, something is wrong. Other warning signs that the element isn't working properly include noticeable signs of wear, partially cooked food, and a strangely high electric bill.
