The control board (programmer) is one of the most important parts of ovens. After all, this component controls the entire operation of the device.
Unfortunately, all modern models of ovens are very sensitive to voltage fluctuations, so electric ovens often fail to work due to a burnout of the board. Also, the board can fail due to improper connection.
To prevent this from happening and avoid having to buy a new control board, entrust the connection of your oven to a professional from Oceanside Appliance Repair. Replacing such a part will not be cheap, and you should understand this because such a part cannot be repaired, a complete replacement is required.
The relay in the control board can also burn out, and there is more than one, and most often this part fails due to power surges. Call a master and he will repair the oven quickly and efficiently, and it will work again as before.
The heating elements are faulty in the oven
A broken heating element is one of the most common reasons why an electric oven does not work. The heating element is the part that helps the oven reach the desired temperature. This element should be replaced by an Oceanside Appliance Repair technician, and you shouldn’t try to do it yourself, so as not to aggravate the situation even more.
Note! After installing a new heating element, a slight smoke or burning smell may be emitted when the oven is turned on. This is quite normal, the new part is burning out.
The switches do not work
The switch is a key element of the oven’s electrical circuit. It is located behind the heating control knob. It is unusable due to a short circuit. It is because of the short circuit that the circuit is broken and no signal is sent to the heating elements, and the oven does not heat.
You can check the functioning as follows:
– Unplug the oven from the mains.
– Turn all control knobs to the zero position.
– Turn the knob to minimum heat, clockwise, you should hear a click.
– Then turn the knob in the opposite direction and you should hear a click again.
– If there is no click, this indicates a malfunction, but you should continue to check.
– Insert the knob into the zero position and plug the oven into the wall outlet.
– Turn the knob clockwise until you hear a click.
– Leave the knob and watch, the switch should automatically turn off after a couple of seconds, if not, you need to replace it.
You can theoretically replace the switch yourself, but it’s still better to invite a technician. After all, the process seems to be simple, but it still requires some knowledge, care, and a special tool.
Small things, but you need to know them
It is worth noting that the oven does not turn on not only for the reasons listed above, but there are also for others.
– the appliance door is not tightly closed;
– Wear and tear of the door seal;
– improper operation of the equipment;
– damage to the fan or latch.
As you have already understood, most often the oven does not work due to frequent voltage drops in the electrical network and due to burnout of the heating elements.
The way the oven is operated also affects the operation of the oven.
To protect the oven from power surges, install a protective relay, yes, you will need to spend some money, but believe me, it will be cheaper than replacing a new control board.
Also, don’t neglect the manufacturer’s instructions. If you study it carefully, you will be able to avoid many unpleasant moments during the operation of the equipment, and it will not soon malfunction.
