Common Wall Oven Problems

Common Wall Oven Problems

Have a wall oven with a problem? It could be one of these common issues.

Wall ovens are incredibly common in homes across the country. If you have one, understanding exactly how they work and the common dilemmas you’re likely to face can help alleviate the worry and stress that occurs when your wall oven stops working properly. Here are just some of the common wall oven problems you could experience.

Your Oven Won’t Heat

For a gas wall oven that isn’t heating properly, it could be that you are facing other problems that don’t directly deal with the wall oven itself. One of these instances is that your gas supply could be at fault for the dilemma. On the other hand, a weak or broken igniter could prevent a gas oven from adequately heating up. You’ll know it’s a broken igniter when it is simply unable to glow. If this occurs, you can call Landers Appliance, an award-winning appliance repair company, to diagnose and replace it for you.

A Tripped Thermal Switch

One of the common wall oven problems most seen in an electric oven is a broken bake or broiler element. A tripped thermal switch in the back of the appliance can cause significant issues in how it heats up. As a result, sometimes, the simple art of resetting the thermal switch can really make a world of difference. But, before you do so, it is integral that you check your circuit breaker to see if any switches have been tripped or triggered that resulted in the lack of heat for your wall oven. 

Dial Controls

A failed oven control thermostat can be a major issue for why your appliance isn’t heating up, whether it runs on gas or electricity. Naturally, it won’t heat up properly when the keypad has failed or the electronic control board has gone bad. A faulty control board can put a halt to your cooking endeavors, but Landers Appliance can put it right!

Bottom Line

It can feel like nothing is worse than an oven that isn’t heating right. Knowing the causes of this common issue can alleviate a lot of time and stress, putting you one step closer to solving the issue.
