Your cooker has many parts to it, and any number of them could be the reason why your oven is not working. It can be hard to diagnose why an oven is not working - but help is at hand! Below are explanations of the most common problems reasons your oven may not be working, how you can diagnose, and also resolve the problem.

Is Your Oven Always Overheating?

Overheating is a big problem! If your oven continues to heat past the set temperature, not only will it burn your food, but it may also damage your cooker. If your oven is always overheating, there is a high possibility that your oven thermostat is faulty and is the reason your oven is not working. This cooker part is responsible for ensuring that your oven's temperature is regulated at all times and stopping your oven from heating up once it has reached the temperature you have set it to. If your thermostat is faulty, it's vitally important that you replace it as soon as possible. If you let your oven continue to overheat, you risk damaging other cooker parts.

If your oven's thermostat is faulty, there are few ways you'll be able to tell. Either, your cooker will be constantly overheating, or in some case will be heating insufficiently; or when you turn your control knob, you'll be unable to hear a clicking noise.
