Common Stove/Oven Problems
Failure to Heat or Start: If your stove or oven doesn't heat or start, it may indicate a problem with the heating elements, igniters, or controller boards. Our certified technicians can accurately diagnose the issue and provide effective repair solutions.
Smoke Smells: Unpleasant smoke emanating from the oven can result from a misaligned self-clean latch, defective clock, or oven control. A professional inspection can identify the cause and rectify the problem.
Non-Functioning Burners and Coils: Burners and coils that refuse to work can be caused by faulty igniters, valves, or heating elements. Our experts have the expertise to repair or replace the necessary components, restoring full functionality.
Oven Door Not Locking: If the oven door fails to lock, it could be due to a misaligned self-clean latch switch or a defective clock or oven control. Our skilled technicians can resolve this issue and securely lock the oven door.
Troubleshooting Tips1. Check the Power Supply: If your stove is not turning on or the burners are not heating, the first thing to check is the power supply. Ensure the stove is properly plugged into the electrical outlet and the circuit breaker for the stove is not tripped or blown.
2. Inspect the Burners: If a specific burner is not heating, try swapping it with another working burner. If the problem persists with the same burner, it might be a faulty element. You can visually inspect the element for any signs of damage, such as visible breaks or burn marks.
3. Test the Oven Temperature: If your oven is not heating to the correct temperature, check the actual temperature inside the oven. Preheat the oven and then compare the reading on the oven thermometer to the set temperature.
4. Clean the Burners and Igniters: If your gas burners are not lit or have a weak flame, they might be clogged with food debris or grease. Clean the burners and igniters thoroughly to ensure proper ignition and gas flow.
5. Check for Gas Supply: If you have a gas stove and the burners are not igniting, ensure that the gas supply valve for the stove is fully open. If you smell and suspect a gas leak, immediately turn off the gas supply.

8. Reset Electronic Controls: Also, if your stove has electronic controls or a digital display, try resetting it by turning it off at the circuit breaker or unplugging it for a few minutes before powering it back on.
9. In conclusion, Read the User Manual: Always refer to the manual with your stove for troubleshooting tips specific to your model. The manual often includes a troubleshooting section to help diagnose and resolve common issues.
