Stove Repair Frequently Asked Questions

If your stove breaks, quick repairs are obviously important, and you can depend on Max Appliance Repair to take care of business. Here some common questions and answers.

Q:Why won’t my gas stove ignite?
A: Your gas stove relies on a spark to get that flame going. If there is a problem with the ignition, it won’t light – of course. That said, if you can see a spark but your stove won’t work, it could be because there is no gas. Test the flow of gas. You should be able to hear and smell it. There is no need to test for too long. A couple of seconds will suffice. Remember, for safety reasons, it’s best to contact a professional for stove repairs.

Q: Why can’t I regulate the temperature of my electric stove?
A: Sometimes this problem is caused by something very simple like the knob that is associated with that particular burner. There are, however, some other more complex problems that a technician will be able to diagnose. If the problem only affects one burner, it’s best to avoid using that burner until the technician has fixed the problem. If several or all burners are affected, avoid cooking on your stove until it has been repaired.

Q: Why isn’t my stove getting hot?
A: If your stove is turning on but not getting hot enough, there could be a thermostat problem. Alternatively, if your stove is not turning on at all, it could be due to a lack of gas or electricity (depending on the type of stove you are using). Check the power supply or gas supply before calling a technician.
