Who doesn’t like a delicious, home-cooked meal every once in a while? There comes a time when fast food just doesn’t cut it, and you want something more substantial than a microwave dinner. But if your oven isn’t working right, those will basically be your only options. Here are a few indications that it’s time to call a professional for oven repair.
The Burners Aren’t Working
There could be a lot of potential reasons why your burners aren’t working as they should. If you have a gas oven that doesn’t light, the culprit could be a faulty igniter. Or the wires leading to the igniter could be damaged. If your oven is electric, the problem could be a heating element that needs to be replaced.
You Smell Gas
This is obviously never a good sign – it could mean you have a potentially dangerous gas leak. There could also be a problem the pilot light. If you smell gas, call a professional immediately.
Food Doesn’t Cook Properly
Let’s say you put a chicken in the oven and followed all of the cooking instructions. But when you take it out, you notice that the bottom is burned while the top is undercooked. That could mean the broiling element needs to be fixed or replaced. There could also be a problem with one of the sensors.
Never try to fix any sort of oven problem by yourself. You could easily make a mistake that could make the problem worse. Or you could injure yourself or someone else in your home.
