What a misfortune when a cooking marathon is about to start at home, and the oven breaks down. Of course, you try to find the culprit yourself. After all, some types of oven repair can be done by yourself. But for many cases, it’s better to call an oven specialist. Before you start to examine the oven, be sure to turn the power off.
The most common problem is lamps
Who hasn’t experienced complete darkness in the oven? To solve the problem, just unscrew the cover. See which bulb you need now, buy it at the hardware store and replace it. Finally, put the cover back on and screw it tight. Now you have light in the oven again.
A broken gasket
Actually, the broken seal of the oven door can not be called “oven repair.” This replacement does not require much effort. In fact, in most cases, this gasket is only glued in place. The broken gasket is removed. It is also required to remove any glue residue. This can be happily done with a paring knife. However, be careful not to cut the metal.
The gasket set can be purchased directly or ordered in any well-stocked hardware store the next day. Make sure that heat-resistant adhesive is included in the set. You can also order via the Internet as an alternative to the hardware store. Pay attention to the size of the door or the length of the sealing tape. Apply the adhesive and place the sealing tape on top – press briefly but firmly. It is best to let the whole thing dry well overnight. Then you can use the oven again tomorrow.
The hinges of the oven door
If an oven door is used a lot, this will naturally affect the hinges first. Most oven doors are attached with hinges. This makes it easy to remove the door. Of course, the new door hinges need to be ordered first. Now replace the old hinges with the new ones. Reinstall the door and try it out. If the door moves smoothly, you have done it well.
The oven door is broken out; the glass is broken, and the hinges are broken off
The issue of the oven door involves 2 possible repairs at once. If the entire door is broken out, it is possible that the hinges are broken off. In this case, find out whether they can be removed in all places. If so, proceed as in the previous point. If only the glass is broken, you must remove the broken glass, usually the inner glass. Take care that it does not break or shatter into pieces. You could hurt yourself. It is thrown in the trash can for residual waste. Just as easily as you dismantled it, it can also be reinserted and fastened again.
Do you have a ceramic stove? Then it is probably directly connected because of the power supply to the oven circuit. If you now need to replace your ceramic stove, you can only use the original from the manufacturer to do so. Because they have the correct power plugs that connect the two units to each other or to an outlet. Inserting and removing a ceramic cooktop is not difficult.
