There are a few things that can go wrong with electric cookers but most are easy for a qualified electrician to repair.

Your oven has stopped heating up

This could be the fuse, the element, the fan or the thermostat.

Your oven isn’t as hot as it should be

This could be because it is losing heat through a broken or missing door seal. Or it could be something we mentioned in our blog post about why ovens don’t heat up properly.

Your oven isn’t switching on at all

If your appliance is plugged in and switched on at the wall but there is no power, it could be the fuse or the terminal block.

Why is my oven smoking?

In most cases, it’s because there is a build up of burned food or grease. If you have a self-cleaning oven, make sure to use the cleaning programme regularly. This will minimise the smoke and odour produced at the very high temperature needed to burn away any debris.

For those of us that have to clean our oven manually…

Let the oven cool down. Then clean it out and rinse it thoroughly. Make sure it is completely dry before you use it again.

If your clean oven is smoking, turn it off straight away.

The most likely reason is a build up of residue from your cleaning products. Wait for it to cool down and then rinse it out carefully. Again, make sure it is dry before you use it again.

If it’s still smoking, turn it off straight away¬†and call a qualified electrician like Gainsborough.

My gas oven won’t ignite

If your gas oven won’t switch on, it could be the electric oven ignitor.

This is the electric ignition that allows your burners to light. It could be food or grease trapped in the burner ports. Or it could be the fuse. Or it could be that the igniter needs to be replaced.
