Wall Oven Repair, Stove Oven Repair Maintenance & Tips
Electric Wall Oven
The wall oven is a convenient kitchen appliance until it comes to oven repair. Like the cooktop, the wall oven is preferred by many avid chefs and moms. Most of the time, you are not bending over to look into your oven or to take that perfectly cooked roast out.
Wall ovens come in some varieties now. Besides the obvious of electric or gas, many come in combinations. Double wall oven, wall oven with microwave, wall oven with convection, are just to name a few. We will be talking about all these except the microwave on this page. The microwave will be talked about on it’s page.
Oven Repair on these units can mostly be performed with the unit still installed. Their are some components, however, that will require you to un-install the unit to gain access to these parts. Maytag, for example, makes a hidden electric bake element which slides out from the back, and many brands put thermal fuses on the back of the oven unit.
One thing to keep in mind when considering a wall oven, is the installation. Make sure when either planning your kitchen layout or installing a wall oven, you read the installation instructions fully and follow them to a “T”. Many times we have found wall ovens not installed correctly which can cause overheating which will end up in oven repair of fuses, thermostats or even control boards.
A wall oven must be installed with proper cabinet clearances, ventilation requirements, and support/mounting needs. Any of these requirements not followed can lead to pre-mature failure of parts, fire hazard, and voiding of your warranty. Please follow all instructions when installing.
Electric Stove & Wall Oven Repair
Almost all stove & wall ovens sold now are electronic in control. Meaning that you have an electronic control board or computer that operates your stove or wall oven. With this electronic control board, you also have a digital display showing the status of your oven. This display will also show you error codes when something is wrong with your unit. This takes away some of the diagnosing of oven repair.
These error codes are explained in the “tech sheet” for your unit. These tech sheets are usually located behind your console panel of your wall oven, or in an envelope on the back of the stove. These sheets will include explanation of error codes, possible causes & remedies, wiring diagrams, and sometimes maintenance tips. They are the technicians best friend for oven repair.
There are times that an error code will not be displayed and the oven does not work, or you have an older stove or wall oven that does not have an electronic control. What do you do then? Below, we will try to address some of these issues of oven repair.
