You’ve taken some time to put together an excellent roast for a family dinner. You’ve done all the prep work and can almost taste the delectable feast. You’re just waiting for the oven to preheat, and then you can sit back and relax.
But it doesn’t warm up. The lights are on, but the element isn’t. Now what? If you’re in Brentwood, you’re lucky. We’ve got a team of experienced technicians who know every possible aspect of oven repair.
Give us a call, and we’ll get someone out there as soon as possible to sort out problems with your oven, range, cooktop, or stove. Our team will get to the bottom of the issue as fast as possible.
When Should You Call Us?
This is one area of appliance repairs that you don’t want to attempt. If there’s a simple solution, like cleaning out a cruddy burner, that’s fine. If it’s something to do with the elements, though, it’s best not to try a DIY repair.
Let’s look at some common issues you may encounter.
The Oven Doesn’t Heat Up at All
The first thing to check is whether or not your oven is getting any power. If so, the power light, clock, and any digital readouts should be lit up. If they’re not, make sure that the power is on. If that’s not the problem, you’ll want us to come in to check things out before you try to use the appliance again.
The Oven Doesn’t Get to the Proper Temperature
Everyone’s oven is different. We all have hot spots and cold spots in different areas of the oven. As a result, you’ll need to do some experimentation to find the best tiers and temperatures to use while cooking.
The problem we’re talking about here, though, is when you can’t get to the right temperature at all. So, if you set it at 350° and it doesn’t go above 250°, this could indicate that there’s a problem with the thermostat, the sensor, or the element.
Let us come in and determine the problem. We’ll fix it for you and explain how you can calibrate your oven so that you know exactly what the best temperatures are.
You Can’t Shut the Door Properly
How serious this issue is will depend on how poorly the door closes. If you can’t even get to the halfway point, you can’t use the oven. It would be dangerous to do so. If the door closes most of the way, and there’s a small gap, you could get away with it for a little while.
Keep in mind, though, that any gaps make it difficult to maintain the internal temperature. You may have to add more cooking time to adjust for this. Even more importantly, it’s going to waste electricity or gas, and that gets expensive. Let us come and have a look as soon as possible.
This is usually a problem with the springs, hinges, or possibly even the gasket that helps to seal the door. If all that is in order, it might just be the sensor that tells the appliance that the door is closed.
These are the most common problems that we come across when it comes to home or business kitchens. If you have any issue with any major appliance, give us a call – we’ll get the job done and give you the best deal possible.
