Common Cooking Appliances Problems We Can Help You With
We have over 25 years’ experience dealing with a variety of different problems on a daily basis and carry all the latest technology to assist with any diagnosis.
Some of the common signs your appliance may be in need of some attention:
Burning food or uneven cooking
Whether your oven is controlled by gas or electricity, they are both controlled thermostatically and over time these can go out of calibration. We are able to accurately read your ovens temperature and change the faulty thermostat or cooking fan where necessary. We can also check the oven door seals and whether the oven door hinges are operating correctly as this is also an important factor in maintaining heat within the oven cavity.
No heat within the oven
There’s nothing more frustrating than turning on your oven and returning to find your food uncooked and cold! In most cases this can be the result of the electric element blowing, which we are able to replace on the spot, as we carry a wide variety of heating elements, which suit most brands. We are also capable of repairing faults within the gas oven not lighting, which can be resolved by servicing the burner and jets or by replacing the thermocouple.
Oven door glass shattered
We are often asked whether an appliance is worth repairing when the door glass has been damaged and the answer is YES! We are able to completely remove the door and dismantle and rebuild, with new glass without too much fuss. As we are service agents to most of the leading brands we can source the parts we need without replacing the entire door, which can be an expensive exercise.
Broken or damaged controls
If you are unable to turn on any function of your oven or cooktop, then there’s a few different causes. It could be the control knobs have quite simply broken through use or there could be an underlying problem where the gas taps, which may be sticking. Our technicians are able to strip down the appliance and regrease the faulty taps and get them moving smoothly again.
In the modern world, ovens are also often controlled by a mechanical or electronic programmer, which are prone to breaking down. A quick check over of the controls and if necessary the replacement of the part and your oven is as good as new.
Cooktop burners not working
If you’re having problems lighting the burners on your gas cooktop or stove, then there’s a chance you may have a problem with the ignition system. We stock ignition units on board of our vans and are also able to source the ignition electrode should it have been broken or damaged. If you cook with an electric or induction cooktop and an individual burner has stopped working then we can check the elements, simmer thermostat or even the printed circuit board for faults and replace where necessary, saving a costly replacement.
