5 common oven problems
Whether you have a brand-new oven or one that’s several years old, sooner or later you’ll likely need to have it professionally repaired. As your go-to appliance repair specialists, the team at Ateliers G. Paquette proudly services a variety of household appliances including ovens, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers and more. We also carry an extensive inventory of replacement parts. Our experts have put together this helpful list of five common issues that affect both standard and built-in ovens.
One of the burners won’t heat up
There are several reasons why one of your oven’s burners may have suddenly stopped working. First, make sure your oven is plugged in. Next, check to see if the power cord is damaged or if the circuit breaker was tripped.
There’s an error code
Consult your owner's manual to find out what the error code means and determine if you can fix the issue yourself. If you’ve misplaced your manual, try typing the model number into an online search engine to find a digital copy.
The door won’t unlock
Before you get ahead of yourself, check to see if you accidentally enabled the child lock. If you aren’t sure how to disable it, consult your owner's manual. If that isn’t the issue, make sure you didn’t mistakenly interrupt a self-cleaning cycle. If you did, cancel it or start a new one.
The door won’t close
Clean the door gasket and inspect it for signs of damage to determine if it needs to be replaced. If the gasket looks good, make sure the door hinges haven’t become loose or started to sag.
The self-cleaning cycle won’t work
Self-cleaning ovens use extreme heat to burn off cooking spills and splatters. Therefore, as a safety precaution, if the oven door doesn't fully lock, the self-cleaning cycle won’t start. Furthermore, if your oven is still dirty after running the self-cleaning cycle, make sure that next time you remove any large chunks of dirt and debris with a specialized cleaner beforehand.
