Oven and Stove Repair in the San Francisco East Bay Area
Ovens and stoves are basic household appliances that are relatively low maintenance. Their basic function is to provide controlled heat that is used to cook food. But, regardless of how well you care for your oven or stove, at some point, it will wear down and require repair or replacement. New kitchen appliances are an expense that most households can find overwhelming when it is not expected. Fortunately, not all oven and stove malfunctions are complicated to fix, nor do they require you to replace them. For minor oven and stove repairs, you may be able to do some do-it-yourself diagnosis and treatment**, and for the big things, or if you don’t feel comfortable tackling the issue yourself, the appliance professionals at WEPCO appliance repair offer an affordable solution to your poorly performing oven or stove.
**Please note — before working on any appliance, make sure it is unplugged from both the power source and the gas lines are turned off!
Affordable Appliance Repair
Most malfunctions with gas ovens involve the supply and ignition of the gas, reducing the efficiency of the oven, or causing it to cease working completely. For electric ovens, the guilty component is typically the heating element malfunctioning. Because of the basic functioning of ovens, the typical lifespan of a quality oven is between 10 and 20 years, so if issues do arise within this timeframe, you may be better served opting for quality oven repair over a replacement. Most of the replacement parts for gas and electric ovens are relatively inexpensive and once repaired, your oven should work like new again!
A well-cared-for stove can expect to last between 13 and 17 years. If your stove or range begins to malfunction or not work as well as it once did, chances are, stove repairs are a viable option to get it working like new again as opposed to replacing it. A common cause of poor stove or range burner performance is that they become clogged with spilled food and grease over time, and could benefit from a thorough cleaning! If this doesn’t work, there may be an issue with the heating element, which can easily be repaired or replaced.

The burner won’t turn on- if the light on the stove turns on when you turn the heat knob, but the burner won’t come on, first try to switch out the burner with one of the other ones on your stove to see if you just need a new burner. If it still doesn’t heat up, it may be the receptacle or the switch, our appliance professionals can fix it!
The oven door is stuck closed- if your oven door will not open, do not attempt to pry it as this could cause some major damage. Usually, the issue is a malfunctioning self-cleaning latch, which our appliance professionals can easily repair!
The indicator switch won’t turn off- if you have cut power to the burner and the indicator switch remains lit, first unplug the stove to be sure that the burner isn’t actually still on. A light remaining on could indicate a bad switch, we can fix that!
The oven will not heat up- if the oven will not heat up at all or barely gets warm, there is an issue with the bake heating element or the broil heating element, both or which we can easily repair!
