The igniter on your gas oven is a fundamental part when it comes to heating your oven up. A gas oven igniter works by sparking and heating the gas emitted from the oven, so without it, the oven will not be able to produce heat. However, as so much rests on this little igniter, they are prone to a bit of wear and tear.
If you find your gas oven igniter is not working, you should first try to troubleshoot the issue and double check it is your oven igniter that's not working. Here's how you can troubleshoot a broken gas oven igniter.
Troubleshooting Gas Oven Igniter
- Check the gas supply lines. If the stovetop igniter lights up, but the oven won't light, then the issue does lie with your ignitor. If neither light up it could be an issue with your gas line.
- Make sure you have enough gas and double check all the valves are switched to 'on'.
- Inspect your igniter and check if it is dirty. If the igniter is covered in debris, this could be causing an issue. Try cleaning it gently to try to improve the sparking.
- Take a look at the pilot hole. If this is covered in grime, it could also be causing your gas oven igniter to not work. Clean the pilot hole with a needle carefully and try to remove any build up.
- Finally, check any electrical connections to your cooker. Ensure they are connected properly. If you found that the connections were a little bit loose, try turning on your oven again after tightening the connection to see if the issue has improved.

If you've found your electric oven's temperature fluctuating, this could be due to a number of reasons. Every oven is made up of a variety of different parts and if one element is not working, this could be the cause of your oven's temperature fluctuation. Find out which parts could be causing a problem below.
Reasons Your Electric Oven Temperature Fluctuates
1) Your oven thermostat is broken
A broken electric oven thermostat is most likely the cause of your electric oven's temperature fluctuation. Your oven thermostat is the oven part which regulates the temperature. If the thermostat is broken, it will no longer be able to keep the temperature at a stable level and will cause fluctuation. This most often leads to burnt food, but can also lead to undercooked (and potentially dangerous) food.

2) Your oven element is damaged
If you find that your oven is hot on one side and cooler on the other, this could be down to your oven element becoming damaged. Your oven element is responsible for providing heat within the oven cavity, so if part of it has become damaged it could mean that one area of your oven is cooler than the other parts.

3) The cooling fan is starting to break
If your electric oven cooling fan is broken, this could cause the temperature to fluctuate during cooking. The cooling fan works to help regulate the temperature within the oven and will stop it from getting too hot. If your cooling fan is broken or on it's way out, you may find that your electric oven's temperature fluctuates substantially.

4) Your electric oven door seal has come loose
You may not think it is a hugely important part of the oven, but the purpose of your oven door seal is to retain the oven heat. A loose oven door seal can cause your electric oven's temperature to fluctuate as it loses heat through the gaps. An oven door seal can easily be replaced, which should solve your oven temperature fluctuation problem!

If you find that none of these oven parts are broken, your oven temperature fluctuation could be due to a larger problem. We would recommend speaking to a professional and then get in touch with us as CookerSpareParts to find the right replacement part!

Despite using your oven every day, it probably still feels like a complete mystery to you! When something goes wrong with your appliance it may seem daunting to try and work out what's going wrong - but it really doesn't need to be that difficult! Below are some of the parts we supply and what they do, this should help you work out which part you need to replace if your gas oven is not working!
If you want your food to get cooked, you need a working oven burner. To make sure a gas cooker can heat up your food, you need the lighter to ignite. This happens when you turn on your oven, as you are effectively lighting the burner. If your oven burner is faulty you'll be wanting to replace is as soon as possible, so to find a replacement, click here.
If your oven relies on electric ignitions, a spark/ignition generator will light the gas that allows your oven to work. It will generate a spark that ignites the natural gas that fuels your oven. We have plenty of replacements for this if your gas oven isn't working! Click here to see this specific part.
If your gas oven doesn't rely on an electric ignition, it will use a flame failure device/ thermocouple. This part creates a constant pilot flame. The natural gas will flow through the oven where the gas is then ignited by the pilot flame. If it has stopped working the gas can't ignite, and you can't cook your food, the true misery of your gas oven not working! Click here to replace it.
In order for a gas oven to reach the temperature you select, a working thermostat needs to be in place. Without a working thermostat your food will be over or undercooked, so you should replace it quickly. To find the appropriate replacement part, click here.

If you have a convection oven, you'll likely know that the fan is a big component of this type of cooker. This is why today we will be looking at what to do if your convection oven fan is not working.
Convection ovens have a fan and exhaust system which allows the hot air to be distributed around the food evenly and then back out through the vent system. This allows the food to cook quickly and evenly in a way regular ovens do not provide. They are especially good for baking!
If you've found your convection oven fan is no longer working, you may be wondering what you can do. You don't want to replace your oven (as this can be costly) so a replacement convection oven fan should be your next step. Guaranteed to be a cheaper fix than buying a new oven.
If you want to double check it is your convection oven fan that's not working, turn on your oven and wait for a little while. The convection oven fan will not start up right away and will only start whirling once the oven has reached the desired temperature. If the fan does not start whirling once the oven has heated up, it is likely your convection oven fan is broken.
So, what can you do if your convection oven fan is broken?
Luckily, each part of your cooker can be replaced, including the oven fan. Here at CookerSpareParts, we have a wide range of replacement convection oven fans which should fit any model.
