Common Problems Listed Below:

Stove or Range is not heating: GAS
On a gas unit the following components can fail; main control board, temperature probe, thermostat, glow-igniter, or a gas safety valve are potential parts that can have issues.
Stove or Range is not holding temperature:
On any stove, gas or electric, this type of problem is normally due to a faulty temperature sensor or the electronic control board being bad.
Stove thermostat is not accurate:
Since the temperature probe sends a signal to the electronic control board this problem is usually the temperature probe or ERC being faulty.
Stove or Range is not turning on:
This type of problem is always a bit harder to isolate, it could be that the wall outlet has malfunctioned or failed. The oven main control board can cause this problem as well as the oven safety thermostat, better known as a thermal cut-off.
Stove or Range Error Message on Display:
Error messages are unique to each appliance and manufacturer, the display may read F-3 on one brand meaning the oven main control board is bad and another manufacturer may mean something entirely different. For these problems a trained technician will need to pull the technical sheet from your oven to find out what the error code means.
Stove Or Oven door will not open:
This type of problem generally occurs after doing a self-clean. Temperatures can reach as high as one thousand degrees during a self-cleaning cycle. At times this can cause the oven temperature switch to fail thus sticking the door lock in the locked position. In cases like this a technician would be required to unlatch the door and make the necessary repairs.
Heating element failure:
If you have been present during a short from an oven bake or broiling element it is something you will not soon forget. Not only is it a loud failure, but it makes a bright flash. When this type of failure happens it is best to turn the breaker off and call the professionals to repair the problem.
