Use our troubleshooting guide below to determine why your oven isn’t heating properly. We cover the top 5 causes of this common oven problem, from broken igniters to defective gas burners.

Oven Not Heating –
Troubleshooting Guide

1 – Broken Igniter

What it is: When your oven isn’t heating properly, check the igniter first, as it’s the most common part to fail. The igniter works by drawing electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Next, it heats up enough to glow and ignite the gas in the burner.

How it fails: However, over time the igniter can weaken, causing it to fail when opening the safety valve. If this valve doesn’t open, the oven will not heat up.

How to Diagnose it: You can check this by turning the oven on and seeing if the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas. If this is the case, the igniter will need to be replaced.

2 – Burned Out Bake Element

What it is: The bake element glows red hot in order to heat the oven to the desired temperature.

How it fails: The bake element can burn out with use. Burn spots or blisters cause the heating element to fail.

How to Diagnose it: Often, you can visibly see if the bake element is burned out. Look for charring or blistering on the element itself. If you see any physical damage, you can purchase a new bake element and replace it fairly easily.

3 – Blown Thermal Fuse

What it is: An oven thermal fuse is designed to trip if the oven gets too hot. This will cause the power to shut off for safety reasons.

How it fails: At times, a thermal fuse can blow, leading to an oven not heating properly. While this is not the most common problem, it can happen.

How to Diagnose it: You can use a multimeter to test the thermal fuse for continuity. If no continuity is found, the fuse will need to be replaced, as it cannot be reset.

4 – Worn Out Spark Electrode

What it is: A spark electrode ignites the gas for bake and broil burner ignition. It is located next to the burner and, and as power is applied, a spark goes from the electrode tip to the shield, thus igniting the gas.

How it fails: The bake or broil spark electrode can break or wear out over time. If this is the case, there will be no spark and in turn, no heat to your oven.

How to Diagnose it: Look at the electrode and see if you can spot any cracks in the porcelain housing. There may be damage to the electrode tip itself. There also needs to be proper ground and correct polarity at the wall outlet. Replace or repair as necessary.

5 – Incoming Power Problem

What it is: The outlet that your oven is plugged into and the power cord itself are responsible for initiating all of your oven’s functions.

How it fails: The outlet may not have sufficient voltage for your oven’s needs, or the power cord could have issues.

How to Diagnose it: Use a multimeter to test your outlet for sufficient voltage. Also, check your power cord for frays or damage, and, as silly as it sounds, make sure it is plugged in. This is actually a quite common cause for an oven not heating.

An undercooked cake or raw brownies are certainly not anyone’s idea of delicious. You may know this all too well if your oven bakes unevenly.

Our common oven problems troubleshooting guide walks you through the causes of an oven not cooking evenly.

Oven Bakes Unevenly –
Troubleshooting Guide

1 – Bake Element Burned Out

What it is: The bake element is one of the parts that works to heat the oven and cook the food inside it.

How it fails: With extensive use, the bake element can burn out, causing it not to work. If this happens, heat is only supplied by the broil element, and you’ll find that your oven bakes unevenly.

How to Diagnose it: Inspect the bake element for physical damage to determine if it is burned out. You will see burn marks or blisters on the element and need to replace it.

2 – Broil Element Burned Out

What it is: Like the bake element, the broil element helps heat the entire oven and cook your food.

How it fails: If the broil element isn’t working, the oven will not bake evenly. It too can burn out over time.

How to Diagnose it: Inspect the broil element for burns or blisters. If you see physical damage, replace the broil element.

3 – Convection Element Burned Out

What it is: All the oven’s heating elements, including the convection element, work together to heat the air inside your oven.

How it fails: Over time, the convection element may burn out, leading to an oven not baking evenly.

How to Diagnose it: Use a multimeter to test the convection element for continuity. If none is detected, replace the failed part.

4 – Temperature Sensor Defective

What it is: The oven temperature sensor helps regulate heat, in conjunction with the control board.

How it fails: If the temperature sensor is not putting out the right amount of resistance as the heat rises, your oven won’t bake evenly.

How to Diagnose it: You can test this part using an ohm meter, and replace the sensor if it is not working properly.

5 – Convection Motor Not Running

What it is: The convection motor is responsible for making the convection fan circulate air inside the oven. For a convection oven to heat evenly, this fan must be working properly.

How it fails: The convection motor can fail, or the motor shaft may stop moving freely, causing uneven baking.

How to Diagnose it: Test the motor for continuity or attempts to turn the motor shaft by hand. If it does not turn freely, it will need to be replaced.

One of the worst things that can happen when you’re ready to cook a delicious meal or bake a tasty treat, is noticing that your oven won’t turn on at all.

Some common causes for an oven not turning on need to be repaired by a professional, but others can be fixed if you’re a little handy. Use our troubleshooting guide to determine if you can DIY or need to call an oven repair technician.

Oven Won’t Turn On –
Troubleshooting Guide

1 – Incoming Power Issue

What it is: This basically refers to the electrical outlet that your oven is plugged in to. Electric ovens need 240 volts of alternating current in order to work, and gas ovens need 120.

How it fails: If your oven won’t turn on, there may be an issue with the outlet. Insufficient voltage from the outlet can cause this common oven problem.

How to Diagnose it: Use a multimeter to determine if there is proper voltage coming from the electrical outlet.

2 – Loose or Burnt Wires

What it is: There are multiple wires that supply the oven with power. They are responsible for igniting the heat and turning the oven on.

How it fails: Wires near the heat source can often burn out, leading to your oven won’t turn on issue.

How to Diagnose it: Take a look at the wires that lead to the igniter or heating elements. You will see physical damage if the wires are burned out. Replace them as necessary.

3 – Defective Oven Control Board

What it is: The oven control board sends voltage to the bake and broil circuits via relays. This is determined by user settings and sensor input.

How it fails: A defective board will not send voltage to the heating elements, making it appear that the oven isn’t on.

How to Diagnose it: We recommend testing other components first. If all other parts appear fine, the control board may need to be replaced by a professional.

4 – Blown Thermal Fuse

What it is: The thermal fuse in an oven acts as a safety precaution against overheating. It will trip if the oven temperature gets too high.

How it fails: Sometimes the fuse will blow, then your oven won’t turn on.

How to Diagnose it: You will need to test the fuse for continuity with a multimeter and replace it if none is found. The fuse cannot be reset.

5 – Defective Igniter

What it is: The igniter works to draw current through the safety valve and open it. It also heats up and ignites the gas in the burner.

How it fails: When you have an oven not turning on, it is likely due to an igniter issue. It can get weak after heavy use, failing to open the safety valve correctly. This causes the oven not to heat.

How to Diagnose it: If the igniter glows longer than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, it is too weak and will need to be replaced.

When you find that your oven temperature isn’t accurate, it can throw off your whole day. You may notice that your dish comes out undercooked or overcooked.

Our troubleshooting guide includes the top 5 reasons your oven temperature is inaccurate.

Oven Temperature Not Accurate – Troubleshooting Guide

1 – Bake Element Burned Out

What it is: One of the most common reasons for an oven temperature not accurate issue is a burned out bake element. When operating properly, the bake element will glow red hot. If you notice that it is not glowing red, then it isn’t heating as it should.

How it fails: You can often see visible damage on a heating element that’s burned out. Holes or blisters will form on the bake element, causing it to malfunction.

How to diagnose it: You can also use a multimeter to determine if the bake element is burned out or defective. If there is no continuity, or you see visible damage, it will need to be replaced.

2  – Convection Element

What it is: A convection element works with other heating elements to heat the air inside your oven. However, if it is burned out, it cannot heat properly.

How it fails: If your convection oven temperature isn’t accurate, it may be due to a burned out convection element.

How to diagnose it: Use a multimeter to determine if the convection element has continuity. If not, it will need to be replaced.

3  – Defective Temperature Sensor

What it is: An oven temperature sensor, along with the oven control board, regulates the temperature. It varies its resistance to electrical current when working properly. As the oven temperature increases, the temperature sensor creates greater resistance.

How it fails: If it gives the wrong amount of resistance, your oven will not have an accurate temperature.

How to diagnose it: Some temperature sensors can be recalibrated. Find this information in your owner’s manual. If your model cannot be recalibrated, call a professional oven repair technician.

4 – Oven Control Board Failure

What it is: As mentioned above, the oven control board works with the temperature sensor for regulation. It also varies its resistance to electrical current as temperatures increase or decrease.

How it fails: If defective, the oven temperature will not be accurate.

How to diagnose it: Some oven models allow for control board recalibration up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit higher or lower. Check your owner’s manual for model-specific instructions.

5 – Broken Temperature Control Thermostat

What it is: When the oven temperature gets too low, the temperature control thermostat cycles the heat on.

How it fails: Sometimes, this thermostat is not calibrated correctly, causing it not to cycle the heat on when needed. This then causes to an oven temperature not accurate problem.

How to diagnose it: We highly recommend hiring a professional appliance repair company to diagnose and fix your oven’s temperature control thermostat is you suspect this is the issue, as they are complex parts.
