Signs Professional Oven Repair is Necessary

There are certain appliances where those who own them can often provide some level of upkeep or even repair - but only to a point before professionals are typically needed. One great example here is your oven, which may sometimes experience very minor issues that you can remedy on your own - but may also sometimes be dealing with problems that only qualified pros should be dealing with.

At Dick Kearsley Service Center, we're here to help with oven repair and any other kind of appliance repair our clients around Ogden, Roy, Kaysville and Syracuse might require. Here's a primer on the sorts of oven issues that are easily enough remedied on your own in most cases, but then some examples of larger issues that should usually be left to our professionals.

Minor Oven Issues Most Owners Can Handle

There are several examples of relatively small oven upkeep or even repair concerns that most owners will be able to manage themselves, including:

  • Plug or line issues: In some cases, issues with your oven trace back to issues with electrical connections, gas lines or even the power source. Simply checking these connections and ensuring the right type of power supply is in place will sometimes resolve the issue.
  • Thermostat calibration: If you find that your oven isn't heating as it should be, it's possible there's a simple issue with the thermostat being misaligned or otherwise not calibrated properly. Readjusting this can often resolve the underlying issue.
  • Dirt or grease buildups: In other cases, issues with the heating element, fan or other internal components could be related to dirt and grime buildups that can be remedied by cleaning.

However, there are several issues that will require the help of a professional in oven repair. Our next several sections will go over these.

Gas Leak

Perhaps the single most serious issue with any oven is a potential gas leak. This is something that should never be taken lightly, as it can represent both a serious safety hazard and even a fire risk in the worst cases. If you suspect there's a gas leak of any kind, contact our professionals immediately for help.

Typically, the first sign of a gas leak is a burning smell. This should be taken seriously and handled quickly. You may also smell actual gas itself, or you may even find signs of soot around the oven.

Broken Heating Element

Another issue that can require professional help is a broken heating element. This should be relatively easy to diagnose, as it typically presents itself with issues like uneven heat distribution, certain portions of the oven not heating at all, or even smoke being present. For instance, if you constantly are finding that food is burned despite the oven temperature being set correctly, this can be an indication.

Changing a heating element in an oven is a task that requires a certain level of expertise and experience. That's why it's always best to leave this work to our pros who have the right qualifications.

Strange Noises

If you hear sounds like grinding, rattling, buzzing or clicking emanating from your oven, this could potentially be a sign of an issue with the fan itself. If you find that this is occurring, it's best to turn off the oven and contact our team for assistance.

Depending on what's causing the issue, we may need to replace the fan or internal parts; again, leaving this work to professionals is the best course of action here.

Oven Won't Turn On

In other cases, if you've already confirmed that there are no issues with your power or gas connections and cannot get the oven to turn on at all, this could be a sign of an internal problem. In this case, it's again best to contact our professionals so we can take a look and determine what repairs may be necessary.

Thanks to all the experience our technicians have gained over the years, you can rest assured that your repairing needs will be handled quickly and correctly.

While a few minor oven repair issues can often be resolved by the owner themselves, in most cases it's best to contact our professionals for help with larger problems. At Dick Kearsley Service Center, we have the right qualifications and experience to handle even the more complicated repairs that are needed. From gas leaks to fan noises to broken heating elements, our team is ready and willing to help.

If you're ever in need of oven repair or any other kind of appliance repair in Ogden, Kaysville, Roy or Syracuse, don't hesitate to give us a call - we'll be more than happy to work with you!
