Many people associate ovens with baking. However, ovens are multifunctional home appliances that make life easier for those who love hosting dinners or have large families to feed. You can also try cooking or baking new dishes to add variety to your meals with an oven. Ovens are the best for faster, easier, and even cooking.

Due to their reliability and hardy nature, many oven owners neglect to maintain their appliances in the best conditions. Additionally, many do not use ovens daily, and anticipating oven problems becomes challenging. Whether you use an electric or gas oven, you will need oven repair services from time to time.

Big City HVAC & Appliance Repair provides reliable home appliance repair services to San Diego County residents. Our oven repair technicians have years of experience diagnosing and repairing different oven brands. Call us or schedule an appointment online to have your oven diagnosed and fixed today.

Common Gas Oven Problems That Need Repair

1.   Ignition is Glowing, but there is no Flame

If your gas oven doesn't have a flame, the igniter is the first thing to check. If it is glowing, but there is no flame, you may need to replace the igniter. Igniters can get worn out and fail to open the safety valve that lets gas into the burner. Call your gas oven repair service to fix the igniter.

2.   Oven not Heating Evenly

One of the most common gas oven repair problems is an oven that does not heat or bake evenly. A faulty oven igniter may cause your oven not to heat evenly. When the igniter gets weak, it cannot adequately open the safety valve, resulting in low heat problems. 

Another possible cause of low oven temperatures is a failed bake element. If the element does not glow or shows signs of damage, it is time to call the gas oven repair in your area.

3.   Gas Odor

If you can smell gas when using the oven, turn it off and investigate a gas leak. Gas leaks are dangerous and can cause explosions or fires. If you cannot locate the leak source, call gas oven repair services to find and repair the leak.

There are two possible gas leak causes. It is either worn-out gas valves or holes in the gas valve. Call an oven repair expert to check and repair the gas valve before you can use the oven again.

Common Electric Oven Problems We Fix

1.   Oven Won't Turn on

The power supply is the first thing to check if your oven isn't turned on. If the oven is receiving power, several possible issues may prevent it from turning on. A faulty heating element is your first call. Other potential causes are faulty switches and temperature sensors.

Such issues need an electric oven repair expert's attention. Call oven repair professionals if you can't turn on your oven.

2.   Incorrect Oven Temperature

Your oven should maintain the set temperature. If the oven temperature is lower than the setting or your food overlooks, you need to recalibrate the temperature controls. 

Other causes include a faulty thermostat or oven element. You may need to call electric oven repair services if the problem persists.

3.   Oven Makes Strange Noises

You may notice your electric oven making unusual noises. It points to broken or worn-out mechanical parts like the fan—an electric motor powers the fan to distribute heat evenly throughout the oven. You should call an oven repair expert to check the fan and motor.

Alex came out as promised when promised and made the repair on our icemaker. I appreciate his prompt and professional service.

June 14, 2022

I walked into a very wet kitchen floor this morning and quickly determined our refrigerator was leaking. I reached out to Big City via Yelp and within 10 min heard back from Val. We discussed a window of time we might meet later today and boom! the technician (Alex T) not only showed up on time but a bit early. He quickly went to work and the problem was solved within 90 minutes. Very efficient & fairly priced

June 9, 2022

I contacted them through Yelp at 9pm and they were the first to respond. Set up an appointment for 10-1 the next day and the technician arrived at 11am. His name was Ozzy and he was very nice, clean-cut, and respectful. Took about 40 minutes to diagnose the problem, get the part from his car, and get the oven working again.

My dishwasher has been a stinky nightmare these last few months. The water wasn’t draining, just sitting causing a disgusting smell at least once a week. I finally decided enough was enough and reached out to some appliance companies in my area of San Diego. This company responded quickly and their price estimate was fair. I was able to get s next day appointment at noon. Highly recommend!

This company was referred to me by my home warranty carrier. Leo was out the same day to repair my washer that was leaking. Badabing badaboom – fixed!! Professional – clean – knowledgable – great service!! Thank you Leo!!

Nick was amazing! He was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and fixed my dryer issue in the one visit which I did not expect! He also gave me some tips and some guidance about keeping my dryer in good shape with proper use. I would highly recommend working with them! Thank you, Nick:)!!

I have a 10 year old Kitchenaid Stove that the broiler quit working. Mark from Big City came out and new right away what was wrong. He had the correct parts with him and fixed it quickly. He was very polite, clean and tidy. Would use them again for any appliance repair.

November 3, 2021

Great job! My washer wouldn’t agitate or spin and it had been previously fixed by Best Buy when it was under warranty for the same issue. This time it is fixed and so quiet! I feel like Big City made it better than when a Best Buy fixed it! Thanks to the tech who came this am!! Happily not going to the laundry mat anymore!

November 3, 2021

Both our washer and dryer needed repair at around the same time, so we tried Yelp to get a quote.  It was a Sunday morning and we were pleased that Big City responded within minutes, offering to send a technician to do a diagnostic the same afternoon at a very reasonable price.  Vlad arrived on time and spent an hour with us, thoroughly going over each appliance.

February 27, 2021

Surprised to see a GE range microwave die after a year of home ownership.  Since it matched the other kitchen appliances I figured I’d give repair service a try to avoid having to buy a more expensive non-matching unit. To my further surprise Big City Appliace Repair came out to pull the unit & repaired same day for a low flat fee.  Service tech Mark was professional courteous and fast.  I’d use this team again!  Good luck
