Understanding Gas Oven Basics

Gas ovens come in two variations, featuring a thermostat for temperature control and an igniter to start the flame. The ignition process varies, either through a ticking noise for a direct current spark or a quiet ceramic igniter glowing yellow to ignite gas on contact.

Safety Perspective: Gas vs. Electric Ovens

Contrary to common beliefs, gas ovens are not inherently more dangerous. Electrical issues in improper installations pose a higher fire risk for electric ovens. Gas appliances often have safety checks, preventing gas entry if certain components, like the igniter, fail to meet required currents.

Longevity and Repairability of Gas Ovens

Gas ovens, with minimal components, remain repairable even after decades. Common parts like gas safety valves and thermostats are readily available. The most common failure, failure to ignite, often indicates an issue with the ceramic igniter or electronic spark technology. Repairing a ceramic igniter is generally more cost-effective than other oven types.

Very, very, professional. Sean and Declan had everything under control. I think my oven was broken on delivery. It just had to completely go out to realize it. They evaluated the problem right away. They had to order parts, but they were back when they said they would. Everything is working perfectly now! Linfoot will be my first call for all my appliance needs! I will be sure to pass your company's name to all my friends and family. Jackie and Ron Gibson

Sean did a fantastic job with detecting and repairing our oven. I also mentioned that I had some plumbing issues and had Sean come back and replace 5 bathroom faucets and perform 2 toilet rebuilds. Upon turning the water back on leaks were discovered in the valves that are used to turn on and off the water. Sean diagnosed the problem and replaced each of the valves. He also took care of a couple of nuisance items with my shower stall and dryer vent. I highly recommend Linfoot Repair and will definitely use them again!

Gas oven and gas stovetop

We understand the importance of gas ovens and cooktops in your kitchen. These appliances are critical for efficient and enjoyable cooking. 

Our team brings expertise in fixing all types of gas oven and cooktop issues, ensuring your cooking experience works to the best of its abilities.

Gas Ovens - How They Work

Gas ovens are straightforward in how they work. 

They have a thermostat to control the temperature and an igniter to light the gas. When you turn on the oven, the thermostat sends power to the igniter. Depending on your oven's make, you might hear a ticking sound, the igniter sparking to light the gas. Some have a quiet ceramic igniter that heats up to a bright yellow and lights the gas. As for safety, gas ovens are often misunderstood. 

They're generally as safe as electric ovens. Modern gas ovens have safety checks that prevent gas flow unless everything works correctly, reducing the risk of gas-related accidents.

Common Issues with Gas Ovens That We Can Help Fix

Gas ovens, though reliable, can have a few common issues:

  • Ignition Failures - The oven may not light up. This could be due to problems with the igniter, whether a ticking spark igniter or a quiet ceramic one.
  • Control Board Issues - If the control board malfunctions, it can affect the oven's ability to ignite or regulate temperature.
  • Thermostat Malfunctions - The thermostat controls the oven's temperature. If it's not working right, the oven may not heat correctly.

Both types of igniters have their own issues. Spark igniters might fail to produce a spark, while ceramic igniters can break or fail to reach the needed temperature to ignite the gas.

Longevity and Repairability of Gas Ovens

Gas ovens are known for their durability and straightforward design, which makes them quite repairable. 

Their simplicity is a big plus – with fewer complex parts compared to other types of ovens, less can go wrong. Critical components like the gas safety valves and ceramic igniters are built to last. 

These parts, crucial for the oven's operation, often have a long lifespan. This longevity means that even gas ovens that are decades old can often be repaired and brought back to good working condition, making them a practical and long-lasting choice for your kitchen.

Gas Cooktops  - How They Work

Gas cooktops are a favorite in many kitchens, especially for professional chefs. They're popular because they offer even heat distribution, making cooking more precise and efficient. The design of gas cooktops is generally simple yet effective, contributing to their reliability. 

This simplicity means they often last long and are less prone to complex problems. The ability to control the flame directly allows for quick adjustments while cooking, which is a big plus for those who need to manage multiple dishes.

Common Gas Cooktop Issues and DIY Maintenance 

Gas cooktops are reliable but can have some common issues:

  • Ignition Troubles - Sometimes the burners won’t light. This can be due to debris clogging the burner or issues with the igniter.
  • Debris Blockages - Over time, food particles and grease can build up and block the gas flow, preventing ignition.
  • DIY Cleaning - Regularly cleaning the burner cap and its area can prevent many problems. If the burner isn’t lighting, check for and clear any blockages.
  • Ignition Source Check - Ensure the igniter is producing a spark. If not, the issue could be with the igniter or its wiring.

For these issues, simple maintenance can often fix the problem. However, for more complex issues, give us a call.

Electric Cooktop and Oven Repair

Welcome to Linfoot Repair, your reliable solution for electric cooktop and oven issues. We know how essential these appliances are in your kitchen for everyday cooking and baking. 

Our team is experienced in repairing a wide range of electric cooktops and ovens, ensuring they work efficiently in your home.

Understanding Electric Cooktops

They use heating elements under the cooktop surface, which heat up when you turn them on. These cooktops offer consistent temperature control, making cooking easier. They're also easy to clean, lacking the nooks and crannies of gas cooktops. But, like any appliance, they can run into issues, especially with regular use.

Electric cooktops make cooking easier but can face several issues.

  • Heating Element Problems - One of the most common problems is with the heating elements. Sometimes, they may not heat up at all or may not provide consistent heat. This can be due to a burnt-out element or connection issues.
  • Control Knob Issues - Over time, control knobs can wear out or break. This can affect your ability to regulate the temperature, making cooking difficult.
  • Electrical Issues - Electric cooktops rely on electrical connections. Wiring problems or faulty connections can disrupt the cooking process or even make the cooktop unsafe.
  • Surface Damage - The cooktop surface can suffer from cracks or chips, especially if something heavy is dropped on it. This not only affects the appearance but can also impact functionality.

Regular checks can help identify these problems early.

Trying to fix these issues yourself can lead to more significant problems, so getting expert assistance from us is a safer and more effective approach.

Understanding Electric Ovens

Electric ovens are a preferred choice for many due to their precise temperature control and even heating, making them great for baking. They mainly use heating elements for baking and broiling, and many modern models have digital controls for temperature and cooking settings. Electric ovens are generally reliable but face some challenges, especially with heavy use or over time.

Common Issues with Electric Ovens

Electric ovens can run into a few different problems:

  • Uneven Heating - This could mean some parts of your oven get hotter than others, leading to unevenly cooked food.
  • Thermostat Issues - The thermostat might be to blame if the oven temperature isn't right.
  • Self-Cleaning Faults - Sometimes, the self-cleaning function needs to be fixed.
  • Heating Element Burnout - The elements can burn out, resulting in no heat.
  • No Heat - In some cases, the oven might not heat up.
  • Digital Control Malfunctions - The digital controls can sometimes go haywire, needing a professional's touch.

Regular maintenance can catch some of these issues early on.
