No power to oven
This means that either a fuse has gone, the mains have tripped or the wiring coming into the oven have burnt. If it’s a power issue then you need an electrician to fix it before we can repair the oven. If the wiring is damaged then we can repair that.
Oven has power but doesn’t heat up
Oven tripping the electrics
This is often caused by an element failing.
Fan not working
Don’t use the oven as it will reduce the life of the element.
Is the fan spinning? Turn the oven on and look to see if you can see the fan spinning, hearing it is not good enough as often an oven has more than one fan
Is the fan noisy as soon as you turn the fan oven on? If the answer is yes then the bearings of fan motor are faulty.
If the noise come on after 5-10 minutes then it’s the cooling fan at fault and needs replacing
Oven burns food
If an oven is burning food then often the thermostat has stopped working and needs replacing
Oven not hot enough
If you have a conventional oven then it means one of the heating elements is not working. Its quite easy to check, turn on the oven for 30 seconds and put your hand near the top and near the bottom of the oven, one of them will not be getting hot.
If you have a fan oven; is the fan working? If the answer is yes then the fan element needs replacing
Grill not heating up
If the light comes on but the grill won’t heat up then the grill element requires replacing.
Oven cuts out (but doesn’t trip the electrics)
This can often be a sensor fitted to the oven to stop the oven overheating which comes on at a lower temperature. Another possible reason is that the cooling fan is not working so turn the grill on and see if can feel air blowing from the fan.
