    Common oven repair parts you may need

    Replacing one of these oven parts may fix your problem.

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    A defective electronic control board can cause several problems in an oven, such as power loss, insufficient heating, or the inability to turn off the oven. This is because the control board acts as the brain of the oven, controlling essential functions like temperature regulation, fan operation, cooking duration, and self-cleaning cycles. If the control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between various oven components, resulting in issues like failure to engage the oven door latch or the generation of strange noises and odors. Due to its potential impact on multiple components, it's wise to have a Sears Home Services professional evaluate the board for any faults that may necessitate replacement.

    Control Panel Replacement

    If the oven control panel is faulty, it can display various symptoms that affect the appliance's operation. It may fail to respond, disregarding inputs or adjustments to oven mode and temperature settings. The display might exhibit erratic readings or become entirely blank. Additionally, a malfunctioning control panel might result in heating issues in the oven, leading to uneven cooking, failure to achieve the desired temperature, or an inability to heat altogether.

    Control Thermostat Replacement

    A faulty oven control thermostat can disrupt proper heating or prevent heating altogether, making it seem like the oven is without power and impacting cooking performance. Moreover, a malfunctioning thermostat might impede the oven's ability to shut off, resulting in continuous operation. If you suspect the control thermostat in your oven is malfunctioning, it's advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional assess the situation and replace the part if required.

    Sears Home Services advice for an oven that has no power

    When the oven experiences a power outage, numerous issues could be at play. To avoid unnecessary part replacements, it's advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests to determine the underlying cause. Our technicians are adept at diagnosing various oven failures.

    Things to keep in mind with an oven no power diagnosis

    Diagnosing problems with modern appliances can be perplexing without the right expertise. Attempting to troubleshoot oven malfunctions without proper diagnostic methods often results in uninformed part replacements. The complexity of electronic components in appliances, particularly those developed in the last decade, adds to the challenge of testing. Consequently, DIY repairs on recent appliance models are becoming increasingly intricate.
