What to do if your oven isn't working but your grill is:

This can happen if your oven loses power, because you've turned off the power source or because of a power cut, etc. This often stops your oven from coming to life - it's worth resetting your clock and seeing if this fixes the problem before calling someone out to help.

It is also worth testing your thermostat and power source to make sure there isn't any other reason that it isn't getting to the right heat.

How to Test Your Oven Thermostat

Your thermostat is responsible for controlling the temperature of your oven. If you find that your food is over or undercooked after setting the temperature correctly there's a chance that your thermostat is faulty. That's right, maybe it isn't your cooking skills,  it's the thermostat. Then again, it might be you... so that's why we are here to explain how to test your oven thermostat

Use a multimeter

  • Unplug the oven from the wall - the last thing you want is to add electrocution to your problems.
  • Depending on your oven type, the thermostat could be located behind the back panel, beneath the backsplash, under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. The thermostat is a thin piece of metal usually attached to a coil of wire.
  • If you then remove the thermostat from the oven, you can use a multimeter to test it.
  • Make sure the multimeter is calibrated and then turn the dial to the lowest ohm rating.
  • Place the multimeter on the thermostat. If the thermostat has a reading of zero or as close to zero as possible, it is working fine. However, if it has no reading at all, your oven thermostat is faulty and will need replacing.

Use an oven thermometer 

Depending on the type of cooker you own, it may be possible for you to recalibrate your thermostat by measuring the actual temperature in your oven manually (using an oven thermometer) and adjusting the thermostat as needed. If the temperature you set your oven to does not match that of the thermometer, you know it is faulty. To get an oven thermometer, click here

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

 

My 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!
