  • Types of Oven Repair

    Oven Repair Singapore includes many different types ranging from oven not heating to oven tripping. Most of these repairs can be done on the spot. Here are the possible types of oven repair.

OVEN COMMON ISSUES

Heating Issues

Heating element broken
Every oven have different number of heating elements depending on brands and models. When a heating element is working properly, it should glow red when the oven is switched on. For most ovens, only the top heating element is visible as the bottom heating element is embedded below the bottom casing of the oven.

No incoming power
There is no power supplied to the heating element and this may be due to faulty electrical wires from the wall socket or the oven itself. Usually when there is no incoming power, other auxiliary functions (i.e. light and fan) of the oven will not be able to work as well.

Thermal fuse faulty
This problem is usually caused by prolonged usage of the oven. In general, ovens should not be used for more than 2 hours continuously without having any breaks in between. The thermal fuses are used as a safety component to prevent overheating. As such, when the thermal fuses are faulty, there is a break in power supply to the heating element.

Selector switch faulty
When the selector switch is faulty, the power connection to the heating element is broken. This problem may be due to physical wear and tear of the connection surfaces in the selector switch.

Thermostat faulty
The thermostat controls the temperature of the oven and when it is faulty, it will not be able to regulate the temperature of the heating element.

Timer faulty
Some ovens are designed to be controlled by the timer. When the timer is faulty, no power can be supplied to the whole oven.

PCB failure (Electronic ovens only)
This is the least likely to happen and when it does, only the oven manufacturer has the correct parts to replace.

Top / Bottom heating element broken
This will cause the oven to heat up only at half the heating capacity. As such, the oven will not be hot enough.

Thermostat faulty
When the heating thermostat is faulty, it is unable to monitor and feedback the temperature accurately. This will result in the heating element being cut off too early before the temperature reaches the pre-set value.

Poor connection
The wires in the oven may be worn out over time depending on the usage of the oven. This is not very common but when it happens, the connection may become loose and thus, causing the heating element not to heat properly.

Top / Bottom heating element broken
This is very obvious when the food is only cooked on either the top or bottom side.

Thermostat faulty
The heating thermostat is faulty and is unable to control the temperature of the oven accurately.

Internal fan faulty
This will cause the heat dispersion in the oven to be poor and as a result, some parts of the food will not be as cooked or even burnt.

Temperature Control Issues

Thermostat faulty
This is the most common reason why the oven is overheating. The heating thermostat is not regulating the temperature of the oven and thus causing the heating element to continue heating even when it passes the pre-set temperature.

Main thermal fuse faulty
The main thermal fuse is a safety component meant to cut off the heating element when the temperature goes over a certain temperature.

Heating element failing
This is due to physical wear and tear of the heating element. It usually happens only after many years of high frequency usage.

Wrong oven setting
This is also a possible reason especially for those using the oven to cook. Check out some of the oven settings explained in this article.

Electronic Issues

No incoming power
The power supply from the wall socket might be faulty.

Main thermal fuse faulty
The main thermal fuse is a safety component in the oven meant to cut off the power when the oven overheats. If the oven main thermal fuse is faulty, it may cause the power supply to the oven to be cut off.

Selector switch faulty
The selector switch might be faulty thus not being able to distribute the power supply to the rest of the oven.

Bulb blown
This is the most straightforward and common reason for the oven to have no light.

Selector switch faulty
The selector switch may sometimes be burnt due to high current flow and as a result, breaking the power supply to the light bulb.

Oven fan faulty
This may be due to physical wear and tear.

Selector switch faulty
The selector switch may sometimes be burnt due to high current flow and as a result, breaking the power supply to the fan.

 

Foreign object blocking fan
This may happen when the fan / heating element mounting becomes loose and blocks the fan.

Oven timer faulty
Some ovens are timer controlled so when the timer is faulty, the whole oven will not be able to turn on.

Earth leakage
Ovens will trip if not used often as there may be an earth leakage. The leakage is usually from the heating element.

 

Component short-circuit
A component in the oven might be shorted and thus causing the oven to be shorted.

Broken wire
The wires in the oven may sometimes get burnt due to the high current drawn. These broken wires may cause the oven to be shorted.

Overloading
The wall socket may be overloaded if many appliances are connected to it together with the often. This will usually cause a high current surge and trip the whole house.
