‘Tis the season…for baking that is!
Chances are, you’re planning to use that oven or range to bake a few dozen holiday cookies or prepare an amazing meal for friends and family. Now is the not the time you want your oven to start having problems! Here are 3 of the most common oven repairs we see this time of year at Appliance Rescue Service – and what to do about them:
1. Uneven Heating or No Heating at All
This is the worst. You’re ready to bake and the heating element just doesn’t seem to be heating properly – or isn’t heating at all. First thing to check – do you have power and is your digital display working? If not, then your problem is likely a blown fuse and you’ll want to call for oven repair. If the display is working properly but the heating is off, go ahead and heat the oven, then examine the heating elements to see if you notice any gaps in its “glow” or other damage that can be seen with the untrained eye.
2. Gas Oven Doesn’t Ignite
Gas ovens will normally click when turned on, and then you’ll hear a “poof” as the oven ignites. If you hear clicking and then nothing after that, it’s likely a faulty igniter. Be sure to turn off gas to the unit immediately and call for professional oven repair to get it fixed.
3. Oven Temperature is Incorrect
If everything appears to be heating properly, but the temperature is still a little off inside the oven, then there are a few possible causes. 1) It could be a faulty temperature sensor. Check to make sure the temperature sensor is not touching the wall of the oven and affecting the temperature. 2) Your oven may need to be recalibrated.
