Most homeowners who found their kitchen appliances defective would try to fix and patch up a little so they can save money and not bother to call the professionals for assistance. What they don’t know that it is dangerous to fix certain appliances and that needs professional service. Generally, minor repairs may be safe but there are exceptions to the rule. It depends on the kind of appliances like stove, ovens, range, and refrigerators. This article will be covering the repair for range or ovens only.
Beforehand as a word of precaution, if you are planning to make an oven or range repair personally you should check first the warranty of your appliance. An oven that has been tampered or a warranty sticker that has been damaged will void the oven’s warranty as based under the warranty rules. Written warranties cover the labor and appliance part’s cost for defective workmanship and appliance parts for a year after the date of purchase.
However, if you decided to self-fix your oven as your do-it-yourself(DIY) small project you need to take precautionary measures to protect and safely avoid the hazards and risks that sometimes comes along.
First and foremost read the oven’s manual. Have an overview of the oven’s parts, checking electrical concerns like voltage requirements, frequently asked questions by the general public and have the know-how to approach in troubleshooting the appliance.
Secondly, safety above all. Protect yourself insulated by using insulated gloves with safety glasses. Wear a mask against dangerous chemical inhalations to avoid future respiratory issues. Ovens have fumes of carbon monoxide, toxic and dangerous gas to humans and animals. For electrical precaution, unplugged from the outlet first the oven to be certain you will not be electrocuted.
Thirdly, you can do the ‘old-school’ way approach-cleaning the basic parts of the oven inside and out.
Primarily, removing the inside parts like racks, temperature gauges, foils and other detachable parts only. Setting them aside first so you can do cleaning later. Then doing the cleaning with either soap and water, baking soda and vinegar, other the counter cleaners methods. Interior parts cleaning
For interior parts cleaning, use damp dish towels with soapy water rinsing. Then let it dry for some time or you can use a dry cloth to dry faster. By the time interior parts have dried, you can clean up the taken-out parts using the same materials for cleaning. After the cleaning, return back properly the parts in the same way as was taken down before, and try not to confuse yourself.
