Your cooker, unfortunately, is like many other things in life, it's not built to last forever. Unless you've discovered an immortal, ever-lasting oven, chances are you're going to have to replace either the oven itself or some of its parts at one time or another. But how long do cookers last? Read on to learn some of the things that you can do to prolong the life of your cooking appliance.

Modern cookers are designed to last as long as possible, especially those that offer the highest of specifications, but there will always come a day when it just seems to have given up. This may happen after many years, or soon after purchase, but it is always important to be aware that where electronics, heat and moving parts are present, there is the potential for something to go wrong. Like anything, if you don't properly care and look after your cooker, it's not going to work. Therefore it is vital to thoroughly clean your oven as regularly as possible to prevent grease and other detritus from building up and causing damage. If dealt with and removed early enough, your oven is far less likely to exhibit issues with functionality further down the line. A good scrub and clean not only improves the overall health of your cooker, but it also benefits hygiene. So, there will be far fewer chances of unusual tastes when eating your food!

If getting dirty while on your hands and knees to keep your cooker alive doesn't sound very appealing, then there is always the possibility of taking your oven in for a service. Most cooker manufactures will provide this as standard when you purchase your cooker, as well as any repairs that are covered under warranty. This, however, will ensure that if there are any parts such as fans or filters that need replacing, they can be found and dealt with as soon as possible. 

One of the most common signs to look out for to tell if your cooker is on the way out is when getting up to the required temperature takes longer than usual. This could indicate one of two things; either there is an issue with your cooker's seals or there are deeper issues with the heating element, indicating an irreversible decline in your oven's performance. You cooker, to some extent, may still work, but continuing to cook in this state may lead to more costlier issues in the future.  

So, what's better than cure? Prevention. Which is why it's extremely important to take note and practice the things talked about above. Regularly cleaning and replacing faulty parts will on average keep your cooker working for around 10-15 years, depending on the type and model. So, it is definitely worth taking that extra bit of time out every now and then to properly care for your oven!

If your oven is experiencing issues and you believe it to be due to faulty or damaged parts, then there is no reason to go out and buy a whole new oven, go ahead and get those parts replaced! We supply a wide range of like-for-like or high-quality alternatives here at Cooker Spare Parts for popular cooker brands such as Hotpoint, Belling and much more.

Range of Ovens

If your oven has stopped working or you have noticed a fault, then carry on reading. This blog post targets common oven problems and how they can be fixed. The majority of problems that occur among most ovens can be fixed independently and it doesn’t take too long either. I bet you’re thinking – “what oven parts do I need?” Well, think no further! Cooker Spare Parts provide a range of oven parts that help make fixing your oven that little bit easier and, a lot quicker. This post will explain the different replacements you will need if certain parts of your oven have stopped working and require replacing. 

  1. Not heating up

Firstly, if you have noticed your oven is not heating up how it should be, there’s no need to panic - this could be an easy fix.  

Gas oven:

If you have a gas oven, the issue could be down to a faulty igniter. In order to find this out, you can test one of the gas stovetops to see if it ignites. To check the temperature and turn on the gas of your oven, you more often than not press down on your dial, hear a few clicks and then the stovetops ignite. If this does not happen for you, you might want to consider replacing the igniter.

To replace the igniter, you can simply turn the oven off by disconnecting it from the main power socket. Remove your oven door so it’s easier for you to access your cooker’s igniter; remove the screws holding the igniter in place, and disconnect the wiring connection; connect your new igniter and then put everything back together – it’s as easy as that.  

If you’re still finding that your oven isn’t heating up as expected, you may have a problem with your thermostat. Your oven’s thermostat controls the amount of gas within the oven and allows the oven to reach a desired temperature (and of course, stopping it from under or over heating). If your thermostat is faulty, this can stop your gas oven from heating up correctly.

Electric oven:

If you have an electric oven, often, due to constant use, the heating elements can wear and stop working. You can often tell if an oven element is faulty if it doesn’t fully glow red/orange, or from its physical appearance. Visual indications are bulging; bright spots; or obvious cracks. If you notice any of these faults, then this is normally a sign that it’s time to replace your heating elements. Changing this only takes a short amount of time if you use the correct replacement part, and by following this step-by-step guide.

 

  1. It’s not heating to the correct temperature

It can sometimes be frustrating when your oven suddenly stops heating to the correct temperature but these appliances don’t last forever, and it is important to keep checking regularly, to make sure your oven is doing its job.

Gas oven:

If your gas oven isn’t heating up to the correct temperature, it may be because you need to change your oven thermostat. However, it could be simpler than that, and the part that could be causing you trouble could be as simple as a door seal. Heat may escape from your oven door and therefore, resulting in your food not being cooked properly.

Electric oven:

If you notice your food is coming out of the oven partly cold; or it’s not heating up at all, this is normally a sign that the temperature sensor inside your oven is broken. Before replacing your temperature sensor, make sure to check that your sensor is not touching the inside wall as this affects your ovens capability of measuring the temperature. If you find your oven is still not heating to the correct temperature, you can use an ohmmeter to test your sensor. Replacing the temperature sensor is also an easy job!

Both ovens:

If you have changed your temperature sensor and thermostat, and your oven still doesn’t heat correctly, one common problem is that it needs to be calibrated. To check that your oven knows when and how to heat up, you must test it by using an oven thermometer. Preheat your oven to 176°C and take the temperature reading after twenty-minutes, and every twenty-minutes or so for the next two-hours - make sure you write your temperature readings down as you go along. After your final reading, add up the total temperature heating and divide this by the number of readings you took. If you’re findings are different to the average 176°C, this will indicate that you need to adjust your oven’s temperature dial. Hopefully this will fix the job!

 

  1. It doesn’t cook food evenly

Another common oven problem is that it doesn’t cook your food evenly! If you have recently cooked some meals and noticed that they are cold in some parts and boiling in others, then this tends to sign that you have either a faulty heating element and thermostat, in your electric oven or thermostat and igniter, in your gas oven.

This problem can be easily fixed. All you have to do is preheat your oven and see if your heating elements light up (electric oven) or ignite (gas oven) and check that the temperature of the oven is the same as the temperature’s sensor. If after this diagnostic test your oven still isn’t working as desired, both heating elements and thermostats should be replaced, for electric ovens or thermostat and igniter, for gas ovens.

Additionally, if you are using baking trays or other trays whilst cooking, give them a clean or replace them. As trays are reflective, if they are not clean, the heat cannot bounce off them and therefore, cook your food as well. 

 

  1. Door won’t close properly

Lastly, the easiest fix and an extremely common oven problem is that your door doesn’t close properly. If you find your oven doesn’t heat up as well as it used to it may be because your oven has a loose door. As we use our ovens daily, the hinges; catches and seals can become faulty, especially if we open and close with some force. This is probably the easiest fix and can be done in minutes. All you need to do is replace the hinges and/or door catch/pin; and your oven will be as good as new! For help replacing your oven door hinge, check out this easy to follow guide.

There are many common oven problems that you encounter, but most of them are a really easy fix! All of the products advised to change faulty parts of your cooker are from Cooker Spare Parts. If you encounter further oven problems and would like guidance or advise, don’t hesitate to contact the Cooker Spare Parts support team.

Know Your Elements (no, not the periodic table kind)

Faults with heating elements are a pretty common problem with electric ovens. If you’re finding that the light or fan still come on, but your oven isn’t heating up properly, you probably have a faulty heating element. In the majority of cases, the best way to fix this is to identify the damaged element in your electric oven and replace it. You can find all our oven element replacements here.

Burnt Grub

If your oven is still cooking food but doing its job a little too well –  i.e. burning everything to a crisp –  the issue is likely down to the thermostat. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that a thermostats job is to manage the temperature of your oven, when it breaks or becomes dirty the temperature becomes unstable. A quick tip for checking this is to take the temperature of the heat inside your electric oven manually – if the reading is higher than the temperature your oven is set to you can be sure the thermostats to blame – browse this page for a replacement.

Black Out

The dreaded electric oven cut out. If it appears that your oven is completely broken, it understandably causes a bit of panic – while it’s hard to diagnose the exact oven fault without knowing the specifics, there are a few common oven issues we can outline for you. One possible problem is that the power from the mains has cut out due to a blown fuse (luckily, this is easily fixed). Alternatively, you may have an issue with the thermal switch or cooling fan. If you’re concerned, we recommend getting in touch with us – we can help whatever your electric oven problem.

Too Much Heat

We all like some warm weather, but if you find that your oven door or knobs are very hot to the touch – or even that other utilities in the kitchen are heating and burning you may have a broken oven door or faulty cooling fan. A damaged oven door allows the heat to escape and consequently can burn furniture around the kitchen. Once you’ve identified whether the fan or oven door is the issue, you should look into cooling fan and oven door replacements.

If we didn’t identify your electric oven fault here then fear not, you can give our team a call on 02920 452 510 so we can help diagnose the problem and recommend quality parts to get your electric oven fixed. For those of you already in the know, you can browse all our spare electric oven parts to find what you need for excellent value for money!

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.
