Gas Oven Doesn’t Heat Up
Here at North West Cooker Repairs we can help you diagnose your gas cookers problem, without bringing it into us (it can save you a lot of time!), in this article we’ll be talking about how to diagnose the fault when your Gas Oven doesn’t heat up.
A specific type of problem occurs when the oven fan appears to be working and the thermostat light is visible but the oven just does not appear to be able to generate any heat (In the case of an oven without a fan, only the thermostat indicator is visible.) Generally speaking, this type of condition is caused by a failure in the fan element or one of the oven heating elements.
In most ovens, the heating elements are located at the bottom (bake heating element) and the top (broil heating element) of the appliance. Checking on these elements can be quite simple; there is distinct red glow visible when both elements are functioning correctly. The presence of an electrical problem that is preventing one of these elements from working can be determined with a voltage meter. A loose connection or a bad wire supplying power to these heating elements can interfere with their functioning. Usually, the heating elements or the wires may have to be replaced in this situation.
This type of problem could also be related to a tripped thermostat. In this case, you should switch off the oven and allow it to cool down to room temperature. You may now attempt to turn the oven back on.
Also check to make sure that your timer is at the Manual position; if it is set to Auto, there is every chance that your oven will not heat up.
If you are dealing with a gas oven, you must first check to make sure that gas is being supplied to the oven. A heating problem can also be caused when the bake igniter burns out or ceases to function correctly. Another factor that could be responsible is a faulty gas safety valve.
