We show you how to fix a stove by addressing the most common issues for each type. We suggest you consult a professional if you need more confidence about repairing a furnace.

Gas Stove Re-igniter: Repair Instructions

A damaged igniter is the most common reason a gas cooker does not heat up. If the igniter is broken, it will not generate enough electric current to start a gas fire. This will set your oven on warming. It is relatively easy to change the igniter, but it can be challenging to identify the correct model for your oven. It can be tricky to remove all the paneling from your oven. Here’s a guide on how to diagnose a problem and replace an igniter for a gas stove. You will need a screwdriver with a Phillips head and a clamp meter. You can find the igniter by removing metal plates and looking in the broiler at the bottom. The igniter has two white wires attached directly to the burner where the gas flame appears. The metal cover can be removed if it is necessary. To determine how many amps you need to light the fire: Read the ignition. Clamp only one of the igniter wires with the clamp meter. Check the meter when the oven is on. The meter must be replaced if it doesn’t register enough amps to start the igniter. To replace an igniter, unplug your oven (or, if the plug cannot be easily accessed, turn off any circuit breakers supplying electricity to the stove) and turn off the gas valve. It can be hazardous to try this repair without turning off both the gas and the electricity. Remove the plate to reveal the burner and igniter. Unscrew igniter. You may need to disconnect the connector if it is attached through the back. Pull the oven away and remove any plating for access. It will then be possible to replace the igniter. Reassemble and run the connector cable through the rear of the oven if required. Check if your stove works.

Electric Oven Repair – How to replace a heating element

When your electronic oven doesn’t heat up, check for a broken heating element first. This is the coil that gets hot and warms the stove. You can remove the heating coil and use a meter to check that current runs through the entire element, but diagnosing a broken element is usually easier. When you turn on the oven and it doesn’t warm up or turn red, a visual inspection may reveal cracks or blisters. Even a slight touch to a blistered area can cause it to snap. Don’t worry; it is likely already broken. The socket wrench or nut driver. Disconnect the power and pull the oven away.

Electric Oven Repair – How to replace a heating element

Unscrew the screws that hold the back panel in place, and remove it by unhinging the clips. Now, the wiring of the oven should be visible. You will find connectors that attach the wires at the back of the stove to the heating element. Pull apart the metal connectors to disconnect the wiring from the heating element. To remove the element, loosen the nuts holding it to the wall of the oven from inside. Install the new element and bolt it to the oven wall. Connect the wiring at the back.
