There are many ways to make your kitchen more convenient, but few are as appreciated as the wall oven. A good wall oven makes it faster and easier to check your food, add and remove dishes and create your culinary masterpieces.
But, because of the nature of installation, repair on a wall oven is more complicated than on a simple standing oven. Accessing key parts, checking electrical or gas connections and running diagnostics all require special tools and training to be performed properly. That’s why you need the greater Washington D.C. area oven repair experts at All-Pro Appliance Repair.
Wall Oven Problems
Some smaller issues might be things you can resolve on your own, while others are more serious than they may seem. Here is a list of common issues you may face with a wall oven:
- Sensor Issues – Your oven sensor is designed to change the flow of electricity depending on the current temperature in your range. At room temperature the sensor should read between 1050 and 1100 Ohms. If it is not in that range, it might either be faulty or shorting out.
- Blown Fuses – If your wall oven is blowing fuses, it often indicates a bigger problem. Remember that a fuse is a safety device designed to protect your oven from a sudden surge of electricity. So, if it is blowing often there is likely a surge problem somewhere in the electrical supply. It could be wiring, the breaker itself or something else in the supply line.
- Error Codes – Modern ovens have digital readouts and therefore can provide error codes that your appliance repair person can check. A common and dreaded readout is the F1 error code. The actual meaning of this code varies, but usually it occurs when the ERC or touchpad fail, though it can also be a problem with your sensor or fuses.
- Heating Elements – If you have a bad heating element, commonly the first symptom is that your food won’t cook thoroughly (or at all). You’ll need to check the electrical supply to those elements to know whether they are working properly or not.
If you have an electric wall oven, almost all of these fixes require you to access the wiring or electrical components of your appliance. This can be very dangerous if you aren’t trained to perform this kind of work, so you need to call a professional to make these repairs. Not only are the fixes quick, but often a seemingly small problem can be an indicator of a much larger issue in your electrical system or in your wall oven. By hiring a professional, you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all possible problems have been checked and that your system will work as intended in the future.
