There’s nothing worse than having a Christmas party planned and suddenly an appliance stops working. If it’s the washing machine that broke down, you might be able to wait with the repair until the holidays are over. But what if it’s one of your kitchen appliances, such as the stove, oven or the fridge? Well, then you have two choices:

If you want to go for option 2, we have some tips for you on how to repair a broken oven in this article. Here you’ll find help on how to repair a fridge and many other tips. But now, let’s get to the oven.
Christmas Problem 1: The Gas Burner Doesn’t Light
If your gas stove won’t light, it might be time to replace the igniter. If you can’t deal with that before the holidays, you can always use a match to light the burner. Furthermore, you can try to clean the different parts of the burner, such as the cap and the grate. Maybe there is some food debris stuck in it that causes the problem. Also, check all the wires that connect the igniter with the control module and tighten them, in case they are loose.
Christmas Problem 2: The Range Burner Isn’t Working
If your electric stove doesn’t heat up, you might have to switch the range burner. To find out if it’s broken, you can simply replace it with a different burner that you know is working. Do that by connecting the working burner to the socket. If that one is not working either, there is a different problem, such as a faulty ignition switch or you might have to replace the socket.
Christmas Problem 3: The Heating Element Is Broken
To replace a heating element, you’ll have to turn off the electricity that is connected to your electric stove. The next step is to make sure you can access the heating element freely. This may contain taking off a panel at the bottom of the oven. Get a screwdriver to get the element out of the fasteners that usually keep it in place. Then, disconnect the element from the two wires that connect it to electricity. You can now take the faulty element out of the oven and replace it with the same model.
We wish you stress-free and happy Christmas!
