OVEN & STOVE REPAIR

Do you need a oven, stove, range or cooktop repaired? Is it in the wall?

We only charge $49.99 for a diagnose and estimate, you even get technical support and the fee is waived when acquired our repair service!

Stoves, ovens, cook tops, ranges, backing and chilling machines are basically simple devices. They develop high temperatures in order to heat produce and cook it to get rid of all kinds of bacteria within the food and to make it edible. Most of these machines are controlled by various knobs and or touch pads that help regulate temperature, time and other functions. They also contain many safety features such as, thermostats, gas safety coils, thermal fuses, “infinite switch”, fixed temperature switch, and anti-heating fiber glass aluminum body.

Some models have a self cleaning cycle option that does exactly what it says. During this cycle, the temperature rises to extreme levels and stays high for two to three hours; during this time the door is automatically locked with a solenoid locking system in order to prevent human error.
These machines come in one of two types; gas and electric. Though electrical powered appliances may seem the best way to go, gas powered ovens, stoves, ranges and cook tops are actually much cheaper to run and maintenance. In recent years, there have been hybrids that run both on gas and electric components in order to get the best from both worlds. Electrical machines are usually in high voltage demand of 220V.

Why does it take so much time for the burners on my stove to light?
To the side of the burners, there are small holes that guide the gas to the burner, these holes sometimes get clogged from burnt residue of food. We recommend cleaning them with a needle or a toothpick.

There is a red glow in my oven, but it isn’t heating. Why?
Today, most gas ovens and/or broilers use specific ignite-rs called “glow bars”, these glow red hot in order to reach the correct temperature to ignite the gas, if the oven is not heating, it is because the “glow bar” is not reaching the correct level for the gas valve to open. In this case, the igniter should be replaced.

How does self-cleaning work on my oven, how do I turn it on?
Almost all self cleaning ovens are slightly different than the next. We recommend to check the owner’s manual for the correct procedure to begin the process. The most common steps usually include; setting the start time for the cleaning to begin, then setting the end time that is from 2-3 hours from the start time, finally closing door and latch of oven and setting the selector switch to “clean”.

Why won’t my clock show the correct time of day?
Clocks are almost never repairable, if the clocks seems to be choosing it’s own time, then we recommend to replace it.

Should I leave the oven door open when broiling?
It depends. There are many models that have broilers that are built inside the oven near the top side. If you’re oven is such, then it is best to leave the door open a few inches. If the broiler is near the bottom then you can keep it closed.

Is it normal for the oven heating element or electrical burner to glow bright red?
Yes it is. When set to a high temperature setting, the heating element/electrical burners will always glow bright red.

Why does my oven smell so much during self-cleaning?
During the self cleaning process, ovens reach extremely high temperatures of almost if not all the way to one thousand degrees in order to incinerate all the grease built up and food left over inside the oven. When all of these things burn, they can make a rather unpleasant smell. We recommend that you don’t use the self cleaning cycle because it uses too much energy, and is very hazardous and damages your appliance slowly over time.

Why does my pilot go out?

1. Pilot flame too low

  • Need service Adjustment
  • Adjust air and/or gas
  • Top burners blow out pilots as they ignite(air circulations problem)

2. Top burners produce unburned gas (yellow flame)

  • Too much gas (bad pressure regulator or need adjustment)
  • Insufficient air or bad air shutter
  • Bad gas quality from manufacturer or distributor
  • Too much gas coming from gas valve (pressure needs to be reduced)

Common Baking Problems

1. Food not done at the end of cooking time

  • oven door opened frequently
  • Too many pans on a rack
  • Thermostat faulty and broken

2. Cookies are dark on the bottom and/or pale on top

  • oven was not preheated
  • Too many pans close to the bottom of the oven
  • Pans blocking air circulation
  • vent does not work

3. Cakes rise higher on one side

  • appliance needs leveling
  • vent fan blocked
  • bad door gasket
  • Oven too full and stopping heat circulation

4. Baking takes too long

  • preheat and set temperature
  • calibrate thermostat
  • different types of flour temperatures
  • too liquid substances

All ranges, stoves and dryers are shipped from factory the factory equipped to burn natural gas. There are 4 types of gas fuels referred by a number:

No.1= Natural Gas

No.2= Mixed Gas

No.3= Manufactured Gas

No.4= Liquefied Petroleum Gas

5. Natural gas(wet gas, sour gas) are found underground.  They contain heavy hydrocarbons such as propane, butane and other substances. Natural Gas is lighter than air, it has a heat value between 900 to 1200 B.T.U, per cubic foot.

6. Mixed gas is made from natural gas and manufactured gas.

7. Manufactured gas is made from coal and petroleum.

8. Liquefied petroleum gas is made up of mainly propane or pentane.

Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes starting with an EIf an error code appears in the cook mode window
Your oven is equipped with an extremely reliable and accurate electronic control. On the rare occasion that something occurs that causes a malfunction, an error message will appear in the oven selector window.Some errors (E1, E9, E11, E12, and E13) must be cleared by turning off the oven at the circuit breaker and then turning it back on. When an error remains displayed steadily in the off position, after attempting to clear the error, a service call is required.Have the error code available when you call for service. This will help service determine the problem.

Check clock functions after replacing relay board If relay board transformer open (E1 to E2), replace relay board. If still no clock functions replace electronic range control (also called clock or ERC)

Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation.
· Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode.
· Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode.
· Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem.
· Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode).
· Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause – fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc.
· Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.
· Look for electrical noise interference in the oven temperature sensor circuit (Ham radio, cordless phone, etc.).
F3 – F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor. Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control.
· Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) – Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals – Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace.
If all above is ok replace control.
F5 Relay safety circuit failure · Check oven temperature sensor circuit for intermittent high resistance.
· Check lock circuit
· Press Clear/Off and reprogram control. If code reappears, replace controlNote: If all above check OK the F5 code can be a result of a momentary loss of power (Do NOT replace control or lock, check lock circuit)
FC Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wires between control and door lock switches on motorized lock circuits. Check wiring and test operation of switches.
FD Shorted meat probeNote: Problem can be with the probe or receptacle or meat probe circuit. · Check probe. Resistance should be 30k ohms to 50k ohms at room temperature.
· Look for pinched wire.
· Look for condensation or contamination of receptacle or nearby installation.
