Disclaimer: When attempting to diagnose an oven problem, always make sure that the oven is unplugged & disconnected. Do not attempt any diagnostics or oven repairs unless you are a trained technician.

Oven Problems

An oven in disrepair can really throw a wrench into your plans. Not only do you have to rethink dinner, but a new oven can quickly get expensive. If there is any way you can get your oven repaired, we are here to help you find it! Here are some common oven problems that you should check before replacing anything:

1) Bake Element is Not Working

The bake element is the element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most modern ovens use both the top element and the bottom element when put on the bake setting, to give you a more even heat. The bake element is most frequently used, and thus is usually the first to show signs of wear.
Symptoms of Broken Bake Element:
• Oven Doesn’t Heat
• Oven Slow to Heat
• Oven Burns top of food

Solution: Start with a visual check. Are there any signs of cracking or blistering on the heating element? If so, you have found the problem. If not, then set the oven to bake for one minute, and carefully check for signs of heating. If the bottom element shows no signs of heat, it is likely not working. Either way, it’s time to call in the oven repair, and save yourself some money!

2) Oven Not Heating up

This problem may seem similar to the one above but often points to a unique set of problems. If your oven is not heating up at all, it is unlikely that both elements broke at the same time. Instead, you are probably looking at one of a variety of fixable problems.
Symptoms:
• Oven Not Heating Up
• Oven Not Cooking Food

Solution: This problem can usually be fixed with ease, and a little know-how, so don’t shell out for a new oven just yet. It can either point to a blown internal fuse, a faulty temperature sensor, or a faulty oven sensor. Give City Master – Appliance Repair Services a call and we would be happy to narrow down the problem!

3) Broken Oven Temperature Sensor

A broken temperature sensor is a problem that is often encountered after a self-cleaning. You may realize that your oven door won’t unlock after self-cleaning.
Symptoms of a Broken Oven Temperature Sensor:
• Oven locked after Self-Cleaning

Solution: The oven is supposed to unlock after a self-cleaning, after the temperature of the oven drops. So, your problem may be the temperature sensor. The first thing to make sure is that your oven is actually done cleaning. If it is, unplug the oven for 5 minutes and wait for it to reboot, plug it in, and try to open it again. If this doesn’t solve the problem, call in for a technician. We will be able to diagnose and replace your temperature sensor, and get the door open.

We had a service technician look at my faulty washing machine. He was extremely professional, and made sure to explain what was wrong with the unit. What I appreciate the most is that the Manager called to make sure I was satisfied with the service after the service call was done. Not many companies out there are truly there for the customer. Will recommend this company to everyone!

This was my first time using this company. I will be booking all of my future appliance appointments with them now. The website and the online booking system were easy to understand and use. I got a call when the technician was on the way, although I missed it, and they still came out at the scheduled time. The technician was very friendly and knowledgeable about the product. I was given a few options for repair along with estimates emailed to me before he left the house. I was able to pay for the service call – which was very reasonable – on the spot. I highly recommend City Master Appliance!

Great guys, friendly service. They even return your calls. Being in the industry over 40 years, you see allot. Now with the internet it’s changed the market place. Now the dead beats who don’t want to pay the bill try and say things to hurt a business. Trying to squirm out of paying. Just pay your bills and quit being a Karren…Shannon
