Established all the way back in 1883, German company AEG (short for Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft - no wonder they decided to just use the initials!) have long been a leading light in the European appliance industry. Founder Emil Rathenau got his start selling light bulbs and generator, but nowadays the company produces all sorts of home appliances, including washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and of course cookers.
Of course, if you're reading this, you're probably not here to learn about the history of the company that made your oven - you're here because that oven isn't working properly and you're wondering "How do I fix my AEG Appliance?
". Described below are a few common cooker problems that may be the cause of your AEG oven angst; if your specific issue isn't addressed here, please feel free to contact the Cooker Spare Parts team

Oven won't heat up, what can I do?
If your AEG oven isn't warming up at all, the problem may well be the element. This is the coil that actually heats up when the oven is switched up, but if it is damaged or faulty, it might not be doing its job properly.
Why is my oven the wrong temperature?
Perhaps your oven is overshooting the temperature you set and burning your food, or maybe it's not getting hot enough and your meals keep coming out underdone. Either way, the culprit is most likely your AEG oven's thermostat - this is the part that measures the temperature in the oven and tells the element to stop heating up once your specified temperature has been achieved.
Door won't shut properly, how do I fix it?
When cooking, it's vitally important to ensure that your oven door is properly closed. Leaving the door open even a little will allow heat to escape from the oven cavity, wasting energy and prolonging your meal's required cooking period. If your door won't close properly - and this may happen for a number of reasons - it's a good idea to fix the problem ASAP.
Check your oven's door hinges
and replace if necessary. Also, inspect your oven door seal
to ensure that it is completely intact. You may even have to replace the oven door
itself if substantial damage has occurred.
