Oven Repair and Maintenance

Oven repair

Your oven is the centerpiece of your kitchen that allows you to safely and efficiently prepare all manner of food items. In general, ovens are fueled either by electricity or gas. An electric oven uses two sets of coils inside the unit that heat up via electricity. The bottom coil bakes foods; the top one broils them. An internal thermostat is activated when you turn the temperature dial, and a copper wire near the cooking surface regulates the thermostat. Instead of using an electrical coil, a gas oven uses a flame to heat the food. A burner in the bottom of the appliance is activated when you turn the temperature dial, and there is a copper wire that acts as a temperature gauge. When the temperature reaches the desired heat, the burner turns off and re-ignites when the temperature drops. Many gas ovens also have a thermostat on the top for broiling purposes. The majority of modern gas and electric ovens also have a self-cleaning feature that turns the top and bottom thermostats to the maximum level, allowing for debris in the oven to be burned off.
