Oven Repair Services

If you’re like the average person, you’ve probably started prepare more and more of your meals in your home rather than going out to eat. Not only does cooking for yourself save you a bundle, but it’s also the best way to make sure you’re making healthy food choices.

Cooking for yourself becomes very difficult if your oven stops working. There’s a limited number of things you can do with just a stovetop and microwave.

The good news is that oven repair is fairly simple. Unlike stovetops, ovens haven’t evolved all that much over the years though the parts used to build them have improved and they’re more energy efficient. For the most part, anyone with basic skills and a few tools will be able to get their oven up and running again.

Give Yourself Time

Yes, you want to get your oven operational as soon as possible, but make sure you have time to complete the project. It really is in your best interest to set aside a few hours to get the job done. If you get done sooner, great. If not, you won’t feel rushed or stressed.

In addition to giving yourself plenty of time to complete the project, you should look your pets out of the kitchen and if possible, convince your young children to go to the park for the afternoon. The job will be simpler if you don’t have them underfoot.

Safety First

It might seem obvious, but before you even start to disassemble your oven you need to make sure you’ve either unplugged it or turned the gas off. Double check that you’ve done this properly.  If you have an electric oven this is a great time to examine the condition of the cord and make sure it’s in good shape. If the plug or cord looks worn, you should contact Denver Appliance Repair about getting it replaced. Don’t even think about plugging the appliance in again until the cord has been fixed. Using a damaged cord is dangerous.

Troubleshoot your Oven

You can’t repair your oven if you don’t know what the problem is. You’ve got to do some troubleshooting. The most common problems include:

  • Burnt out oven elements-Even though the oven indicates that it’s on, your food never cooks. The oven element is very easy to replace on most ovens.
  • Temperature control malfunction-In this case, your food cooks but it cooks to quickly and burns, or takes forever to cook. You’ll probably have to replace the temperature gauge.
  • Inaccurate and malfunctioning temperature control panel-This can be identified by setting the oven at a specific temperature and using a cooking thermometer to determine how warm the interior actually gets.
  • Oven door mechanical  problems-Several things can make it difficult to either open or close the door. Be prepared to remove the door and then reattach it again.
  • Gas ignition malfunction-Don’t try to fix this yourself, call an expert.

Knowing what’s wrong with your oven is just one aspect of getting it repaired. You also need to have the right tools.  The tools you should have on hand when you start your oven repair project includes:

  • Multiple Wrenches
  • Screwdrivers at least four different sizes
  • Something to scrape grease from various parts. Make sure it’s made out of plastic
  • Nut driver
  • Crimp-on terminals
  • Goggles
  • Gloves
  • Oven thermometer make sure it’s properly calibrated

You should be able to find the parts you need to get your oven up and running again at the local hardware store. If you’re looking at cheap, generic replacement parts we urge you to reconsider. Spend a few extra dollars and get a replacement part that was created by your oven manufacturer. Not only will they be a perfect fit for your appliance, but the quality is usually quite a bit better and they will last longer and perform better. Remember, a repair job is only as good as the parts you used.
