Appliance Service Center
Greater Chicago's Most Professional Oven Repair
Appliance Service Center has been specializing in stove and oven repair for more than 60 years. We service any kind of residential oven you can imagine as well as commercial customers. When we're done with your oven or appliance repair, it is backed with a 1-year parts and labor warranty.
We get calls and emails from throughout Chicago to our Customer Care Center asking us how we know when an oven repair is needed. It's not so unusual a question really! Unlike a refrigerator repair or dishwasher servicing, we can't immediately tell when an oven is failing. The following are definite signs that something is wrong with the oven and probably requires a professional technician.
- No heat or low heat comes from the oven - regardless of the setting
- The oven isn't cooking the food properly
- There are issues with the control board such as the temperature controls or timers
- The electric element isn't working, or is working improperly
- The gas igniter isn't working - or is working intermittently
In regard to the igniters, we recommend immediate replacing if any of the following are occurring:
- The heat is uneven
- There is a "struggle" to make the temperature stay set
- The igniters haven't been replaced in 3 to 5 years
- The ignition is delayed
- The burner is not igniting
Ovens are an appliance that should give us years of good use. However, ovens should never be taken for granted. When minor problems start to occur, a routine servicing can stop those little problems from becoming a major headache.
Appliance Service Center is always pleased to answer your oven repair questions. Please call us or contact our Customer Care Center online and we will be happy to assist you. In the meantime, here are some useful preventative oven maintenance tips:
- Hand wash oven racks - soak in soapy water then wipe clean
- Wipe spills inside the oven as soon as possible
- Check for old spills before turning the oven on to prevent debris from cooking or "caking on"
- Use the self-cleaning cycle on a regular basis to prevent build-up and eliminate fire hazards
- Self-cleaning ovens do not require the use of spray cleaners; in fact, this can cause damage
