OVEN + RANGE REPAIR
While most people might not think of their oven, stove or range as their most prized possession, it is certainly one that everyone feels the loss of when it is not working properly. Trying to cook dinner and finding that a burner wont turn on or the oven isn’t reaching the correct temperature is an exercise in frustration you don’t need! So if you are experiencing any of the following issues, call our team today.
Whether you are dealing with a gas or electric stove, no problem is too big for the Handlers to handle!
With an electric range, there are a number of causes a burner won’t heat including an electrical short, a burned out element or connection or a defective surface element switch. Our team is here to help troubleshoot and diagnose and repair your electric range burner.
If when you turn the handle to ignite the burner and all you hear is clicking, without a flame, the most likely culprit is food debris. The food debris can get lodged in the pilot or the igniter. It can even get lodged deep in the burner assembly. If cleaning the burners doesn’t work, you may have a faulty ignition switch. If this is the case, call our team and we handle it!
The first step is to refer to your owner’s manual and make sure you are starting the cycle and using the knobs correctly.
If you’re still having trouble with the self-cleaning cycle, it is best to call our team as you may need a repair to the door lock motor and switch, control board, thermostat or some other component that is keeping your oven from running the self-cleaning cycle.
Also keep in mind that the self-cleaning cycle can’t do everything. Large spills inside the oven will leave a layer of ash that still require some manual cleaning.
To see if you are having an issue with your appliance or an electrical issue, you can check the following:
- If the top burners do not work, but the clock or lights do, you have power but the appliance may be wired improperly.
- If none of the burners work, but the oven bakes and broils, you may have an issue with the range.
- If you are confident the oven has no power, it is time to see if the problem is the house wiring or the oven itself. This can be dangerous and should be handled by a professional.
