“My Electric Oven Isn’t Heating Up!”

power point gloucester dec 18 blog new site
With Christmas fast approaching, if you are preparing lunch on the big day then the last thing

you want is a problem with your oven.

There are several things that might be causing this problem. Whichever it is, it is unlikely that you will be able to fix it yourself. You are going to need the services of a professional electric oven repair engineer and possibly replacement parts.

So what could be causing the problem?

• Temperature sensor. The temperature sensor is a vital part of your electric oven. Its job is to regulate the temperature inside the oven. If it is faulty or damaged it will not allow the oven to turn on or heat up. A professional will be able to sort this for you.

• Bake and broil. The bake and broil are your oven’s heating elements and are a common cause of the problem. Be very careful when examining them as you can easily burn yourself. Problems arise when they become corroded or burn out. Once again a professional will solve this for you.
• Igniter. It is possible that the igniter has been damaged and is failing. You may be able to spot this easily if the rings are not glowing. However, some makes of oven will let the rings glow but not allow any heat. Send for a professional to test it for you.
• Wiring. Damage to any of the wiring may be the cause of the oven not heating up. A trained electrician or professional electric oven repair engineer should be able to identify and rectify the problem.
