Check the heating element

The most common reason of oven not hot is the faulty heating elements. The oven has two types of heating elements, one on the top known as the broil heating element, and one on the bottom known as the bake heating element. If you notice the color and texture of either one, you will easily notice that it’s damaged or in perfect condition. A heating element that is in perfect condition glows bright red. If you notice that either one or both of the heating elements has gone bad, you need to replace it with a new set of heating elements. That’s where we come in. Our reliability scales from an initial assessment of the problem to its required solution, in this case – replacing the heating elements, all carried out by trusted and licensed technicians.

Check for electrical issues

If you’ve already replaced your oven heating elements and still the oven is not hot, there might be an electrical issue. You will require a voltage meter to scrutinize the wires that lead to cornered input of your heating element. Determine if there is a bad wire or loose connection that is causing your element not to work. And if you’re still unsure about this simple procedure, give us a call, we will get back to you in a matter of hours and provide the service to fix and prolong your oven’s life.

Inspect temperature sensor

Many electrical ovens have a temperature sensor that audits the temperature inside the oven consistently. If there is a defect in the sensor, it can easily cause your oven to not heat at all. You will need to replace the temperature sensor immediately before you lose your day’s work and cause any further damage to your oven.

Check the thermostat

The oven control thermostat is placed in the main control panel and is responsible for controlling both the broil and bake elements. A malfunctioning thermostat produces too much or too little or no heat at all. Thus, call an expert to check the thermostat and rectify the problems if any.
