Oven & Stove Repair and maintenance in London, ON
What’s a homeowner to do when their oven isn’t working? You don’t want to burn, undercook or not be able to cook your food, which is why your oven is one of the essential appliances in your home. Thankfully, most oven problems are common and easy to solve. Here are some quick fixes for common problems you can try before contacting Appliance Handyman technicians:
Inconsistent temperature in electric ovens
You may just need to recalibrate your oven, especially if it’s an older electric model. To recalibrate an old oven, you just need to turn the screws behind the temperature knobs while measuring the temperature with a thermometer. It’s also possible that your thermostat is faulty, and will need replacement.
The oven door won’t close, or lock strange.
Check your door for staining or soot. If either or both are present, you may have a warped door. To fix this, open the door and loosen corner screws which join the inner and outer panels. Push on the door, and twist it from side to side until you can’t see any more gaps.
The door won’t seal.
Burned, damaged or dirty seals can cause improper sealing, as can a warped oven door. Attempt the above, and inspect the seal clipped to the oven front. Your seal can be replaced with an identical new one bought from your appliance parts supplier.
Your stove element may be the culprit. Disconnect the power from your stove by tripping the switch at the consumer unit, and remove any screws that hold it in place. Test the element with an electrical continuity tester and replace it if faulty. This may be complicated, so we recommend calling us.
Bad smell when cooking.
Clean your oven thoroughly, and then leave it on to burn through any excess dirt or residue for a few hours according to your manufacturer’s instructions.
Individual burner won’t come on.
Your burner, receptacle or switch may be the cause. Swap your burner with another one to determine the cause.
Oven or Stove Problems Which May Require a Technician’s Assistance
The burner is too hot: this generally requires a replacement switch, which is a complicated installation procedure.
The oven is not baking or broiling: To fix these issues, we generally need to replace parts such as the bake igniter, or valve.
