Why Has my Oven Broken?
There are many eventualities that can cause your oven to fail Factors such as faults with the ignition circuitry, the pilot light, the door, the thermostats, and the gaskets can all interrupt the function of your oven.
You may want to take the DIY route when it comes to your appliance issue but when it comes to ovens you should definitely steer clear. Minor cosmetic repairs such as a loose dial are one thing, but disassembling your appliance to access a faulty part is another.
It’s a common misconception that DIY repairs will save you money.

Common Oven Issues
The Oven Doesn’t Heat up
When faced with this problem you should first check the pilot light (if you have a gas stove) and rule out a tripped breaker if you have an electric model. If you’ve ruled this out, and have power, then you’ve probably got problems with the heating element which will need replacing. However, if the issue centers around the grill then the grill element will need to be changed out instead.
If both of these parts are working just fine, then the safety thermostat or oven thermostats may be on the fritz. This could because of the failure of internal fuses. As there are so many possible causes, you’ll need our help to get to the root of the problem.
The Door Won’t Open or Close Correctly
If your door is being a pain to open or close then you may have developed issues with the hinges or the runner. These can be realigned or replaced if needs be. If both of these parts are fine then the door seal may be past its best which is what makes the door tricky to shut. If you have an oven with a self-cleaning feature then the latches for this system may be at fault which will prevent the oven from opening and the cleaning cycle from starting.
Oven is Overheating
This is usually down to sensor or thermostat malfunctions which can cause your oven temperatures to skyrocket. If your food is coming out burnt, then you’ll need to call us to fix this problem.
No matter the style of oven you have, double, single, range, built-in, your appliance has an average lifespan of around 10 years. If you’re reaching this milestone, then a replacement may be more cost-effective than frequent repairs.
