Common wall oven problems – Fix it fast!
This fast fixing of the wall oven problems is only possible if you spot the issue. This is not possible to cure without diagnosing. Here we see what are the problems that may be caught the oven and then practice their solution.
The oven door is not shutting!
If the door of your oven is not shutting, this is not uncertain and may happen. All of the accessories have a certain life after which they either need to be replaced or fixed. The same is the case with the door of your oven. Go and check the gasket that could be either of silicone or rubber. This gasket serves as a seal to close the door and also prevents you from the rays and heat of the oven. Open the door by pulling it out, if you find that gasket is worn out it means you need to replace it with a new one.
The second of this problem could be the springs holding the door. Carefully open the door and check the spring wrapped in bolts. If they are broken, take then out with a plier and replace new springs with the bolts.
After doing this close to the door, it will be ok now.
Wall Oven not heating
This is the major problem of the wall oven that they often not heat. If your oven is also not heating, this troubleshooting is for you. First, if you have a gas wall oven, carefully check its gas supply shut off valve and make sure that it is ON. If you find it off, reverse its direction. Secondly, the gas igniter is also the main culprit of this problem. If the igniter is broken, it will not let the oven heat up and if it is damaged, the igniter will glow but it will not be strong enough to ignite the gas, and as a result, oven won’t heat. If this is the case with you check the igniter and address it.
In an electric oven, broiler element or broken bake are responsible for this problem. A tripped thermal switch may also prevent the oven from heating. It may be the house breaker that is preventing your wall from heating. As, wall oven requires 240V for its operation, if any out of the two 120 volts house breaker is tripped, it may lead to this problem. Don’t forget to check the circuit breaker of the house if your wall oven is not heating.
The interior light is out
If the interior light of the oven is out, it is easy to replace a new bulb. Although it will not affect the performance of the oven, still, you need to have an eye on what is going with the food. So, to remove the old fused bulb, take out the cover of the bulb either by pulling or rotating it and get the bulb out. Now, wear a glove or use a dry cloth to hold the new bulb and replace it at the same place. You have to keep in mind that it must be of the same type.
Oven not heating to the right temperature
If your oven is heating but not maintaining its right temperature it means it needs to be recalibrated. To make it done, heat the oven to 350Fo and check the inside temperature with an oven thermometer after every 20 minutes. Check it for the next 90 minutes to 2hrs. Add up all the temperature readings and divide by the number of readings. You will get an average temperature and you can calibrate your oven’s temperature accordingly.
Also, check the temperature sensor that must be touching the inside wall of the oven. When you will make these changes to your wall oven, it will be set at the right temperature.
