Faulty Oven Thermostat

Your oven thermostat is the part of the cooker which regulates the temperature. If you have a faulty oven thermostat, you will know about it. As the heat is no longer regulated, this could cause burnt or even undercooked food - and nobody wants that!

How To Tell if Your Oven Thermostat is Faulty

If you find your oven is not cooking your food properly, the fault is either with the oven heating element or the oven thermostat. The only way you can determine if it is your oven thermostat is by testing it. 

You can test your faulty oven thermostat using the following steps. 

  • Unplug the oven from the wall. 
  • 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. 
  • Ensure 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. 

Replacing Your Oven Thermostat

To replace your faulty oven thermostat, you will need to ensure you have the correct spare part. Here at Cooker Spare Parts, we stock replacement oven thermostats for a variety of different cooker ranges. From Indesit to Zanussi, we have a replacement spare part for you.

When preparing a family meal or showing off your culinary skills, the oven is one of the most frequently used appliances. Whether you have a gas or electric oven, we'll discuss what to do when you suffer from this issue.

Please note: we always recommend you use an electrical or gas-safe registered engineer to carry out repairs.

Signs You Have A Problem

Is your oven taking longer than it should to cook your meals? Have you been following all cooking instructions to the letter - selecting the right temperature and leaving your food in for exactly as long as you're told - only to find that, when you open the door, everything is still lukewarm and half-raw?

If so, the problem may be that your oven isn't getting hot enough. Just because you're turning the knob to 200°C, doesn't mean that the oven is actually reaching that temperature.

If you're constantly having to pop your dinner back in for another few minutes just to get it cooked properly, there's probably a problem with your appliance that needs to be addressed.

Common Causes

Now that you've discovered the first signs your oven is not heating up correctly, it's time to find the cause of the problem. Here is our recommended checklist for electric and gas ovens:

  1. Defective electric oven thermostat.
  2. Faulty electric oven element.
  3. Broken gas oven thermostat.
  4. Damaged gas oven burner or ignition electrode.

You'll Need

Once you've found the culprit, you'll need to find the correct replacement part. For this you'll need the following:

  • Model and serial number - this will be found on the data badge on the cooker/oven.
  • Owner's manual (optional).

Defective Electric Oven Thermostat

If you notice that your electric oven isn't heating up to the correct temperature and food comes out under-cooked, this many be caused by a defective electric oven thermostat.

Thermostats measure the temperature inside the oven cavity, switching the electric element on and off to maintain the desired temperature.

The Fix

Firstly, check that the temperature sensor isn't touching the oven walls, as this will affect the accuracy of the internal temperature readings. If it is, reposition so it isn't touching the wall and see if this helps.

If you're still suffering with the same issue, you'll most likely need to replace the whole thermostat. Luckily these are inexpensive parts that are around £10-£30.

Still not working properly? Then you'll need to replace the entire gas thermostat. Thankfully we supply a wide range of parts that start from just £25.

Damaged Gas Oven Burner or Ignition Electrode

For the more serious issue of your gas oven not heating up at all, you may have a damaged oven burner or ignition electrode.

When you set a temperature on the oven, you should hear clicks followed by the sound of gas igniting.

The Fix

If you don't hear the gas igniting and the clicking stops, you'll probably need to replace the ignition electrode. Luckily these are just £5-£20.

Should the issue continue, you may have a damaged oven burner. This can be a complex problem, so we would recommend you find a gas-safe registered engineer to take a look at your appliance.
