It’s tempting, when something goes wrong in your home, to attempt to fix it on your own and avoid a pricey repair bill. But, when it comes to gas stoves, there is very little room for error. More so even than electric appliances, gas appliances can be incredibly dangerous if mishandled. That’s why it is so important that you call the professional trusted by your neighbors to fix their gas appliances.

In the greater Washington D.C. area, that company is All-Pro Appliance Repair. For years we’ve been the most trusted gas stove repair company in the region. Our experts are trained to ensure they can handle any problems you may have and get your stove working properly fast.

Gas Stove Problems

The first step, of course, is to recognize when you have a problem. Not only does this ensure that your repair person has the right knowledge and tools when they arrive; it allows you to verify that a repair call is needed. Again, you should never attempt do-it-yourself repairs on a gas appliance.

  • Doesn’t Turn On at All – Remember that most gas stoves still use electricity to light the pilots and maintain function in the controls. Check to be sure the electricity to your stove is still active and that no breakers have been tripped. A voltmeter may be required to check for the electricity running to your stove.
  • Burner Won’t Light – If your burner won’t light but you can smell gas, the most common problem is a dirty burner. Excess grease or food stuck in the burner can stop the gas from flowing or igniting properly. Another problem, especially for those that have sparkless igniters, is that there are many moving parts and no clear way to test them. If your stove is clean but won’t light and uses a sparkless igniter, you’ll want a professional to check your burners.

While most problems with the stove and top burners for your gas range are simple, they can be deceptively complicated to repair. In some cases, parts need to be replaced and in others something needs to be cleaned, but you want a professional who can make these repairs without causing additional problems that might put you and your family at risk.
