When to Call Us

You may find it easy to repair minor issues with your cooktop, oven, and range. However, it's advisable to call a technician for the best repair services. You can tell it's time to seek professional assistance if you note any of the following issues:

1. Cooktop Not Turning On

The problem mostly occurs if the cooktop is not properly plugged in. Before you check for any significant damages, confirm that the unit is plugged in and that the gas outlet is in order. If, even after checking, the cooktop still doesn't turn on, call a qualified electrician immediately.

2. Coils Not Heating

The cooktop may be receiving power, but the coils are not heating. This mostly happens if you have a loose connection between the coils and the cooktop. If you recently cleaned your range and disconnected the coils and the cooktop, confirm that you connected them back as they should. If the two are adequately connected, but still the coils aren't heating, you may be having an issue with the cooktop's internal ignition. In this case, a technician will help resolve the issue.

3. Weak Burner Flame

A weak burner flame is a sign of a low gas supply to the burner. A professional technician adjusts or repairs the gas supply depending on the cause of the problem. 

Other common issues that you may experience with your oven, range, and cooktop include:

  • The oven door not closing as it should
  • Range clock reading an error message
  • Touchpad not working
  • A problem with the oven safety valves
  • Defective thermostat
  • Overheating oven, and many more
