Most Common Range, Oven And Stove Problems

Stove not heating. Oven not heating.

First of all, this will not apply if the stove or oven is completely dead. If the fan is working, the thermostat light comes on but you still do not get any heat then is very probably that the fan element or the heating element have errors. These are usually tested for continuity and if you will replace it, safety must be considered.

Other probability may be present with this kind of error, it can also be the main oven changeover switch. The normal stove repair is to have a changeover switch, sometimes called a "commutator", to select the various oven functions with the thermostat mounted on the back on cheaper models and a separate thermostat, often also regulating the grill temperature, on more expensive models or those with more features.

The safety thermostats or, on some models, a thermal fuse can also cause this failure although if they have failed there is normally a reason such as a faulty thermostat or poor ventilation.

It is also possible that a thermostat failure can cause this fault although this is rare.

The stove / oven overheats and burns everything

Normally this is a simple thermostat failure which would manifest itself as this symptom.

When replacing thermostats be careful with the "“phial", this is the long "sensor" that has the temperature probe on it which is inserted into the oven cavity. You must not kink or break that phial as if you do you will have broken the part and it is rendered useless. The phial is filled with a gas which expands and contracts thereby operating the on/off action of the thermostat.

Call Mr Rogers and have you oven be check by an oven certified technician in Clearwater or St Petersburg

The oven door is not closing properly

Normally this is caused by faulty hinges or broken hinge runners.

Most of the time the hinge runners, not the hinges, will break and usually the little rollers will fail, causing the door hinges to don't work correctly. 

Most stove technicians will advise strongly that both hinges are replaced, both rollers or runners replaced, or a set of each at the same time. Replacing one is a false economy as 99.99% of the time if one has gone the other is sure to follow very soon.

The oven door fell off!

See previous item. Is the same cause.

Or simply call Mr Rogers Appliance Repair Cleatwater and St Petersburg. We have appliance factory trained technicians

The units are burning at either side of the oven or cooker

Under normal conditions a faulty door seal will be the cause, where the oven or range is a quite old or could be by the door not sealing correctly because of the broken hinges or runners/rollers.

On newer appliances the reason could be a poor installation.

So for older appliances:

$1·         Oven or cooker door seal faulty

$1·         Oven or cooker door hinges faulty

$1·         Oven door hinge rollers/runners

$1·         Possible oven thermostat fault 

For new machines:

$1·         Physical damage to oven (transit damage)

$1·         Inadequate ventilation

$1·         Inadequate spacing between oven and cupboard doors

$1·         Poor kitchen doors that cannot withstand temperatures of 100?C Possible thermostat fault

It doesn’t matter if your stove is new or old, Mr Rogers can help you repair your range with a certified range technician. We offer Same Day Service and Emergency Service Call. 

The oven door or knobs are too hot

This is very common in new appliances.
When installed correctly, the chances of the oven not meeting BS Standard is almost impossible so much so that we have only come across such an instance once or twice in tens of thousands tested over the years. The accepted solution is that replacing with a newer model with better cooling ability or with a cooling fan as most don't have these fitted as standard to minimize the manufaturing cost. 

Call Mr Rogers Appliance Repair St Pete and have a technician check your stove today. 

The oven or stove cuts out after it's been on for a while. Stove burner suddenly turns off.

This is an overheating problem which can be caused by the main oven thermostat or a faulty safety thermostat that will be causing the problem. It can also be caused by a failure of the cooling fan, where fitted, but usually these go noisy before failing, only rarely do they go open circuit.

Safety thermostats are used to prevent the oven or cooker overheating and causing physical damage and are usually mounted on the outside of the actual oven cavity. They can be hard to find as all too often they are buried in the insulation surrounding the oven cavity if the wires are not evident and easily seen.

No matter what your problem is you have an expert to call. Call Mr Rogers and ask a certified stove technician in Cleatwater or St Petersburg to  help you fix your stove burners or oven heating element. 

The oven or stove is noisy

Is very wierd to have a noisy stove, is rare but noise in the oven has a reason, is noise being produced by parts moving, so the fan motor and cooling fan motor are the most obvious causes where fitted. 

On older ovens and stove a bearing failure in either motor will cause this issue and, in the case of fan motors, if the fault is not rectified reasonably quickly the fan element may fail as well as the motor turns slower than it should allow the fan element to overheat. In some cases the fan blades may even "clip" the element, again leading to its premature failure.

It is worth noting that some rattling type noises can be caused by loose screws, faulty hinges etc.

No one likes a noisy oven. If you have this problem you can call Mr Rogers and ask for an oven specialist to  repair your oven. 

Why does a fan run after I switch the oven off?

This is a cool down period and can vary massively from appliance to appliance and even from kitchen to kitchen as it is dependent on the temperature that the machine was running at, the insulation (how good it is) and the ventilation of the cabinets in which the oven or cooker is housed. It is not uncommon for a cooling fan to run on for half an hour or more after the oven is switched off and this is perfectly normal.

You can call Mr Rogers and ask a technician for tips on energy saving or giving your stove maintenance. 

The oven door seal is faulty where can I get a new one?

Door seals are easy to spot on failure as they tend to break up and they are normally easy to replace, most being simply clipped into place. We can send a technician to your home to check your stove and see what type of seal we need to ordered. Once we have the oven seal we will call you and schedule and appointment. We have Same Day Service, Next Day Service and Emergency Service available for your convenience. 

 How do I clean the oven?

We hope to have a more detailed article on this in the near future however as a start some tips are detailed here:

$1·         Refer to the user guide for instructions on removing the door and door glasses

$1·         Do not use abrasive cleaners where there is stenciled lettering or legends

$1·         For oven interiors, but not  self-cleaning panels, Fairy Power Spray is excellent

$1·         To clean inside the door, between the glass, disassembly of the door is usually required

$1·         Knobs usually "pull off" for cleaning, gently prise if required

$1·         Do not clean panels with wire wool or "Brillo" pads as you will damage the surfaces

$1·         Do not use any chemical cleaners on self-cleaning panels, you will ruin them

If you need a certified technician to clean the oven for you, call Mr Rogers. 

How do I clean the oven door?

See above, but most oven doors can be removed for cleaning and, if possible, this is normally detailed in the instruction manual. If you need help or advised on how to clean your oven door you can call Mr Rogers and scheduled an appointment for a technician to visit you. 

The door glass has shattered, why?

We have had much debate on this subject and the short answer is that there is no definitive answer to the question, we can only tell you what we do know to be fact or has been advised by the manufacturers.

The problem can be caused by minor defects in the glass and these can be caused in many way including:

$1·         Hotpots from resting hot dishes on the glass

$1·         Slamming the door which can weaken the glass

$1·         Leaving wet dishtowels either on the glass or in contact hanging on the door causing a temperature differential

$1·         Impact damage

$1·         Temperature regulation problem

$1·         Improper installation, ventilation

$1·         Large casserole dishes (or similar) touching the inner glass whilst cooking

$1·         Oven thermostat problem (overheating)

$1·         Oven door seal faulty

$1·         Oven door hinges faulty

As you can see there has been a number of reasons put forward but, unfortunately, the evidence often lies in a thousand pieces making determining the reason for the glass to explode (as it is often reported) virtually impossible.

The upshot of it is that this does happen on occasion and can happen to any brand, no one brand has escaped this phenomena and there is no definitive time scale in which it will happen nor any definitive reason other than a thermostat failure or, possibly, the hinges and door seal as they can be ascertained.

With either the inner or outer door glass not properly in place do not use the oven for safety reason, it can be dangerous to do so.

If you need to replace you oven door or door handle you can visit Mr Rogers or call us and ask a technician to assist you. 

The light inside the oven is faulty

Normally this is simply a case of replacing the bulb. However is the bulb cover is stuck, it often happens due to the build up of cooking grease, then you may have to smash the cover (carefully) to access the bulb. Occasionally a full light assembly is required.

If you do have to smash the bulb get an old towel and place it over the lamp cover and smash. The towel should catch most of the glass, stop you getting cut or shards of glass flying at your face as well as protecting the oven liner.

Most common bulbs used for ovens and cookers are available from this link, make sure that you use a correctly rated bulb for the temperature or the new one could explode!

A Certified Technician help you identify the main problem. Call Mr Rogers now and ask for the stove repair service. We offer Same Day Service Call, and Emergency Service Call. 

The oven is totally dead

First things first, check the electricity supply and make sure it is okay.

Next check that the oven is not on automatic, if you are not sure check the manual.

Next, it has become increasingly popular for builders to cut costs by not installing a proper 30 Amp cooker supply, instead placing ovens on a 13A socket and plug. The problem is that invariably the socket will be behind the oven and you have to take the oven out from its housing to check the fuse.

After that check the mains cable with a meter (DO NOT LIVE TEST )

If you can’t find the problem call Mr Rogers and let a technician repair your range for you. 

The oven door handle is broken, is it easy to change and can I get a new one?

Depends on the oven. Some are really simply, being only two screws to release and change and others require a total stripdown of the door.

Just call Mr Rogers Stove Repair Service St Petersburg - Clearwater to have an advise on how to do it. 

What's the black glue that holds the door glass or hinges on?

It is this special heat glue that is used for these types of jobs. Bear in mind that you must allow this glue to set completely before refitting any components glued with it.

If you think that black glue is not doing his function correctly you can call Mr Rogers Appliance Repair Clearwater - St Pete and ask for advise. 

The grill element in my oven or cooker doesn't work

This would usually indicate that the grill element is faulty.

Also check the main oven changeover switch, energy regulator (grill) if fitted and any overheat thermostats.

$1·         Grill element 

$1·         Oven changeover switch

$1·         Overheat thermostat 

$1·         Main oven thermostat, if used to regulate the grill temperature

If you need to repair your grill element from your oven you can call Mr Rogers and schedule a service call. 

The outer part of the grill element doesn't glow

They mostly don't. Most, especially continental grills, do not use an infra-red outer zone and therefore they do not "“glow" as such but they are still heating.

The only way to safely check this is to carry out a continuity check on the element itself.

Get a stove technician to check it for you. Call Mr Rogers Appliance Repair St Pete - Clearwater 

There's smoke from the oven, what is it?

Invariably spillage except on a new installation or when a new element is fitted. The elements come with a protective coating which must "burn off" before you commence cooking.

There is nothing in the oven that is flammable or that can cause any odours or smoke in normal use and so the cause must be external in origin.
