What Is A Kitchen Range Appliance?
If you call to have your range repaired you should know what appliance you are actually referring too. The range is an appliance in your kitchen that consists of the oven and the cook top or stove top. There are several types of cook tops and oven but they are generally called a range.
What to Do When Gas Stove Top Burner Won’t Light or Ignite
If you have a stove top or a cook top that has gas burners you have to turn the dial to ignite and then the flame will come on. If you turn the dial and hear that ticking sound of the igniter but the flame never comes, you could have a problem with the pilot light. The pilot light should remain lit even when the stove is not in use. The pilot is a small flame that when the gas is released it lights up the stove for use. You can call to have a professional come out and re-light the pilot for you.
How to Fix an Oven that Won’t Heat Up
The oven works when you turn the dial to a desired temperature and allow it to heat up. After about 10 to 15 minutes you should be ready to place what you want to bake in the oven. If you go to do that and the oven is not hot you could have a problem with the heating element. This entire system can be replaced or repaired instead of replacing the entire unit.
How to Tell if Your Stove is Leaking Gas
Indicators of a gas leak are the smell of rotten eggs, a hissing sound of pressurized gas escaping and a high gas bill. If you suspect you have a gas leak, this is an emergency! You need to quickly call an emergency appliance repair company to come out and open the doors and windows to allow the gas to dissipate. This is most likely a loose fitting and the gas is not being stopped when turned to the off position. This can be repaired with a new valve by an experienced appliance repair technician.
What to Do if Your Oven Knobs Are Broken
If you have a dial or knob that is completely lost or one that is worn out or broken it can be difficult to set the stove to the desired temperature setting or ensure that it is completely turned off when you are done. You can have a new knob ordered and installed if this happens to you.
How to Calibrate My Oven Temperature
If you go to set your oven to a temperature that you know normally cooks your recipe right only to find burnt dessert you may have a problem. Your oven can be unbalanced or the knob or dial can be set on incorrectly and therefore giving you a false reading on the temperature. It can be recalibrated and repaired with the right tools and an experienced technician.
