My oven isn’t heating up!

When your oven or stove refuse to heat up, check the power in your house first. Is the power out, or has a fuse that supplies power to your oven blown out? If this isn’t the case, your next step should be to check the electrical elements and wiring. Look in your owner’s manual for instructions on how to do this in your particular model. If the problem is with the stove’s wiring, you need to call a professional. Never try to handle faulty wiring on your own – instead, contact us and let a qualified technician deal with the issue.

My elements aren’t working.

If you find that one or more your stove top elements have suddenly stopped functioning, you may be under the impression that you need to go through the full process of replacing the faulty elements. However, depending on what the issue actually is, that may not even be necessary. It’s just as possible that the issue causing your elements to malfunction has to do with faulty wiring or connectors, or even a malfunctioning switch. Again, you should absolutely not try to perform these appliance repairs on your own, but if you call us, one of our technicians should be able to deal with the problem quickly and easily.

My elements won’t turn off!

On the other hand, some people find themselves saddled with elements that refuse to turn off, no matter what they do. This problem is also usually related to internal wiring, an issue with the infinity switch, or on rare occasions the control board. Again, it’s best not to try to tackle these problems on your own, since a misstep can often lead to more problems or costly repairs down the road. Our trained technicians will do a series of tests to identify exactly where the problem originates and to help you fix it.

Why doesn’t the self-cleaning function work anymore?

Typically, a faulty latch on the door is what prevents the self cleaning function from operating as it normally would. In some other cases, the problem could be a broken element or on unique occasions, a defective control board. If a part on your stove needs to be replaced or fixed, we will be able to help you quickly and effectively, since we have access to a dedicated parts supplier as well as all the other necessary equipment for your repair on call.

My stove’s display screen is showing an F1 error code – what does that mean?

The meaning of an F1 error code could be something as common as loose wiring, but there are a range of other things that could be causing the problem. In rare cases, you may need to change the control board, one of the most important parts of your stove. Many people are often told by inexperienced technicians that their whole stove needs replacing when really, a new control board will do. Our stove technicians will be able to take a look at your appliance and figure out exactly what needs to be done to get you the best possible performance for the lowest possible cost.
