Ovens are a staple of your kitchen. Without a working oven, it can be quite difficult to prepare meals for the family. While you expect your oven to work when you turn it on, there is always the chance that something could go wrong. To help you understand some of the common oven repairs you might have to make, check out the information below.

Your electric oven isn't heating up.

One of the first things to check with an electric oven is whether or not your system has power. If you don't see the display telling you the time or oven temperature, you might have to replace the fuse for the oven. Take a look at your circuit breaker and see if the one for the oven is tripped. If it isn't, you will need to have someone come in and take a look at the main control panel in the oven itself. They will also be able to look at the heating elements to see if that is the problem. Either way, they can replace the problem component and restore your oven to working order.

Your gas oven won't heat up.

Oftentimes, the main reason why a gas oven isn't getting hot is because of a problem with the igniter. If your oven is working properly, you will hear what sounds like a clicking sound. It will click a few times before you hear what sounds like a whooshing sound that lets you know your oven is warming up. When your igniter is broken, it will stop clicking and you won't hear the whooshing sound. When that happens, you need to make sure to turn your gas off to prevent flooding your home with a bunch of unwanted gas. At that point, you need to turn to a professional to come out and replace the igniter or see what else might be going on with your oven.

Your oven isn't heating evenly.

Whenever your oven isn't heating evenly, that often means there is a problem with your heating element. Oftentimes, either one of the elements will burn out or both of them will burn out at the same time. Even a partially damaged element can make it difficult for your oven to be able to do its job properly. A trained professional will be able to take the old elements out and replace them with new ones.

Regardless of what you have going on, you need to turn to a trained professional who can come in and get the job done quickly for you. Contact a service like Repair My Appliance NYC to learn more.
