Your Questions About Oven Repairman

Nancy asks…

How can I tell what burned in my oven?

My new (3 weeks old) electric oven caught fire. The repairman claims that we must have spilled oil in it, but I am certain we hadn’t, and that the fire seemed to be some sort of chemical, as the smoke was very acrid and burnt our throats. If it was an oil fire what would the smoke have been like and what would the residue have looked like?
The oven had already been used several times previously, including baking a cake that afternoon, so I am reasonably confident that the packing materials had been removed. We didn’t do that ourselves, the brand new oven is in a brand new house, if anything we assumed that the builders left everything ready to be used.

Buy a mass spectrometer

thatll sort it out 🙂

by way of interest, how confident are you you removed all tape, foam, plastic film, straps and anything else inside oven when it was delivered?

Richard asks…

What are some trouble shooting ways to try to fix an oven that wont turn on?

My Gas/Electric stove/oven works but doesnt. the stove is gas, oven is electric, the light turns on inside the oven, so its getting power, however, it never heats up when turning any of the dials. What could be the problem

James Conley answers:

There are several things that could be wrong from a bad element to a bad clock/control. You are better off calling the repairman to come out and check things out and get it fixed the first time and no experimenting with parts.

Daniel asks…

Why is the bottom of my oven over cooking?

It’s an older model kenmore oven. If I want to cook something that calls for 450 degrees, I have to set it to 250 and so on. The oven still wants to burn the food on the bottom. Does anyone know what is wrong with it?

James Conley answers:

Yes, it sounds like a problem with the thermostat. I think you will need to call a repairman.

If it was just not heating evenly (front cupcakes not cooking at same time as ones toward the back, etc.) I would say a baking stone in the oven would help, however, your problem is more serious.
