Common Oven Repair Issues
When your oven goes on the blink, you may panic, worried that the issue is something catastrophic. However, of all the things that can go wrong with an oven, some problems are more common than others. Here are some of the more common oven repair issues we tend to see while we’re out in the field.
Your Food Isn’t Getting Hot
If your oven isn’t getting hot, the reason for this is different depending on whether you have a gas or electric oven. For a gas oven, the issue is usually a broken igniter, and for an electric oven it’s usually the heating element. The good news is, if you’re feeling brave, you may be able to replace either of these parts yourself. However, if you have a gas oven and both your oven and the burners have quit on you, then you need to call in a professional to take a look.
Your Food Isn’t Baking Evenly
When you cook a dish, does it seem like one part of the oven is hotter than another? While one part of your food is cooked to the perfect temperature, is another part either burnt or raw? This issue may be related to either the igniter or the heating element. You can try replacing the appropriate part or call a professional if replacing that part does nothing to fix the problem.
The Oven Temperature Is Incorrect
You may notice something is off with your oven temperature if you preset your oven temperature but your food always comes out over- or undercooked. This is another problem you may be able to fix yourself. Consult your owner’s manual, which should contain instructions on how to recalibrate the temperature of your oven. Failing that, you may need to call in a professional to fix the problem.
The Oven Light Went Out
If you turn on your oven light and nothing happens, you may need to replace a blown oven light. The issue becomes more complicated, though, when you replace the bulb and the light still won’t turn on. In this case, your oven may be experiencing an electrical or wiring issue — something you definitely shouldn’t attempt to fix on your own if you are inexperienced with electricity.
The Oven Refuses to Self-Clean
If you set your oven up for a self-clean, but it refuses to cycle through the process, then the issue may lie with anything from the oven door switch to the thermostat. This is another issue that requires a professional since it could be traced back to several different causes.
The good news is that Top Shelf has experience with just about every kind of oven issue, so we can easily diagnose the problem within minutes and fix it in no time flat.
