Most common repairs needed to fix a LG oven
Electronic Control Board Replacement
An inoperative electronic control board can lead to various failures in an oven, including a lack of power or heating in the oven, or prevent the oven from turning off. This is because the board serves as the brain of the oven, controlling crucial operations such as regulating oven temperatures, running cooling fans, controlling cooking time and controlling the self-clean cycle of the oven. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between many different components. A failing board may prevent the oven door latch from engaging, or may cause a chattering or clicking noise from the oven or emit a burning odor. Due to the potential impact on multiple components, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests on the board to confirm if replacement is necessary.
When an oven igniter is faulty, it can prevent a burner from igniting, resulting in no heat from the bake or broil burners in the oven. A failed igniter could also cause difficulty in lighting the burner, requiring multiple attempts to achieve ignition. The igniter may emit a clicking sound without successfully lighting the gas, indicating a malfunction. In some cases, the igniter may not produce any visible spark at all. An igniter failure can lead to delayed ignition, causing a noticeable delay between turning the knob and the burner lighting.
Fan Motor Replacement
If the fan motor in an oven is damaged, the electronic control board and control panel may overheat. Typically, a thermostat in the control system trips to prevent the oven from turning on or heating when the control area becomes excessively hot. A damaged fan motor won’t be able to circulate air and cool the control panel area. The extreme heat can lead to damage or warping of the control panel and its internal components, including the electronic control board and display. If you notice the cooling fan isn't functioning, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional inspect the oven and address the issue promptly.
What to expect when you experience an LG oven stopped working issue
How is the stopped working problem fixed?
Correcting most stopped working problems usually involves replacing the electronic control board, igniter or fan motor. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.
Sears Home Services recommendations for an oven that has stopped working
When the oven has stopped working it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of oven failures.
What to look out for with an oven stopped working diagnosis
Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your oven problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
