Of all the appliances we have in our homes, it is is a pretty fair statement to claim that ovens are the ones which work the hardest. They are the center of the home in many ways, and are responsible for delicious family dinners, whipping up your favorite snack at a moments notice, and bringing people together on a special occasion.
When your oven breaks down, it can cause significant disruption to your daily routine – especially if you are part of a large family with hungry mouths to feed! The idea of a broken oven can also be daunting from a financial perspective; they can be expensive to replace, and the situation can quickly escalate into a nightmare.
The good news is that help is just a call away. Here at Bob’s Appliance Repairs, we have over 15 years of experience in repairing household appliances to a high standard, and are dedicated to helping you get back on your feet and enjoying a delicious meal in no time!
Why did it break down?
Ovens can malfunction for a range of reasons, and our technician will take the time to carefully assess the appliance and diagnose the total extent of the problem before they carry out the repair. Some of the most common issues are around gas lines or electrical circuits, and for this reason, we would seriously advise against attempting to carry out any repairs yourself.
DIY can be a great skill in many areas of life, but not when it comes to carrying out essential repairs on your oven. No matter how good your intentions, you may accidentally end up doing more harm than good, and there are risks which come with ovens and other appliances. The issue could be something to do with a gas line, or a faulty electrical circuit or wiring – neither of these are areas you want to venture into without complete training! Instead, call in the pros – it’s why we are here.
Common problems, troubleshooting, and repair
Doesn’t heat properly
If your oven is not heating up properly, chances are that a broken ignitor or a faulty heating element are the most likely culprits. A broken gas line could also be a likely explanation, and it is important that you get a qualified professional to handle the problem if this is the case.
The door is malfunctioning
If the door to your oven is not closing properly, you may have a defective door sensor, or the springs may have become damaged. These are easy for our team to replace!
One of the common flaws with self-cleaning ovens is when the door locking motor, thermostat or control panel fail – our team can tackle this with no issue.
Should I consider a replacement?
As a general rule, you can expect your oven to last around 15 years with proper care and maintenance! With this longevity in mind, it is easy to see why taking the time to get broken parts repaired is far easier and more cost-effective than a total replacement – not to mention being better for the planet! Give us a call today, and restore your appliance to its former glory.
