Three Steps to Take Before Calling for Oven Repair | Appliance Repair

The oven is one of the most under appreciated appliances in the home. However, it is one of the most versatile ones. You can use it for quick convenience foods like frozen pizza or to bake a multiple layer cake with tasty frosting . You can roast, broil, oven fry, and bake in ovens.

When your oven is not working the way it should, your entire life can be upended. You may find out when you are just getting ready to fix a big meal or on a busy evening when you don’t have time to do anything about it. That is when you need to get it repaired quickly.

What Should You Do Before You Call in the Professionals?

Before you call in an oven repair service, you should first do a bit of detective work on your own.

  • Check the breaker box. You may find that the breaker that supplies power to your oven has tripped. Simply resetting it may get your oven working again.
  • Make sure the oven is plugged in. If your unit has an independent plug, make sure it is fully pushed into the socket. A child or repairman may have pulled it out and not pushed it back in.
  • If your oven runs on natural gas or propane, make sure you have fuel. You may have simply ran out of fuel or the fuel outlet might have been shut off.

If you find that the breaker and plug are okay, and that you have enough fuel, it is time to bring in a professional that knows how to fix ovens. Give us a call here at A-Tech Appliance Parts & Service.
