Your oven is one of the most important appliances in your kitchen. It helps you create both everyday and holiday dishes for your family and friends. Electric oven is easy to use and provides even temperatures while cooking. Unfortunately, like any other appliances, ovens can wear out and break with lots of use. If you found out your oven won’t turn on at all, don’t stress. First, try the tips below.
The heating element is responsible for providing your GE oven with the heat needed to bake or roast your food. A burnt out heating element will have visible damage. Visually inspect the heating element and replace it if necessary.
To fully operate, most electric ovens need 240 VAC running through two legs of voltage, each carrying 120 VAC. If one leg of voltage is shut off by tripped breaker or blown fuse, the oven won’t turn on.
If you have done all the tips above, but your GE oven still won’t turn on, professional appliance technicians help might be needed to solve this issue. Call us to schedule a service appointment!
Sometimes a couple of burned or loose wires can significantly impact the work of your appliance, or prevent it from working entirely. Depending on the model of your GE oven, bake or broil wires might burn out if they are located close to the heating elements.
Thermal fuses may easily blow due to the overheating which will prevent your oven from working entirely. In this case make sure to check the fuse for continuity with the multimeter. In case there is no continuity make sure to replace the fuse.
Try switching thermostat or oven temperature sensor with properly functioning parts. These parts allow the oven to monitor the temperature inside. Once the target temperature is reached, the oven control board lowers the power supply to the heating element. This is how your oven maintains the target temperature during the whole cooking process. A defective thermostat and sensor may prevent your oven from turning on entirely.
If there is no significant deviation in the resistance of the sensor, it may mean that the oven control board itself is malfunctioning. Even if you can’t properly test the control board make sure to examine it for burns and other visible damage.
