Why does my oven not heat up?

Have you ever asked, “Why doesn’t my oven heat heat up or come on?”  If so, its possible one of the following malfunctions may be present in with your oven’s components:

  • Your oven’s bake or broil element is burned out or broken if its an electric oven. It’s made of a material called Calrod and it’s susceptible to increased chances of failure the older it gets. Check it for burn marks or breaks. Running your oven’s self clean feature is also very hard on bake and broil heating elements. If it fails to heat right after you ran a self clean function, there’s a pretty good chance one or both of those components are damaged.
  • If your oven or range is gas, its possible your oven’s solid state igniter is burned out or cracked. Its made of a material called Carborundum which is mined from the Earth, yet it’s quite brittle and susceptible to mechanical or electrical failure. Check it for cracks or burn spots.
  • Your oven’s safety thermostat could be blown. This could be due to a variety of factors, such as age, excess heat buildup, self clean feature used excessively, or a failure of your oven’s exhaust system. Checking your oven’s safety thermostat is somewhat more complicated, so you may want to call in an oven repair expert if you don’t feel comfortable checking this component.

So if you find yourself with oven, cook top or range problems, give one of our oven repair experts a call today at (832) 321-3758. It would be our pleasure to help!

Why does my dryer not heat up?


Have you ever asked, “Why doesn’t my dryer heat up?”, then read on.  There are many potential reasons a clothes dryer may fail to heat up, but we’ll list the more common reasons here:

a) Thermal fuse has blown out. Your dryers thermal fuse is designed for safety in mind. In fact, it’s actually considered a safety device on dryers. It’s purpose is to monitor the dryer’s internal temperature environment and cut itself off (by burning out) if the operating thermostat fails and the heat in the dryer exceeds a predetermined temperature, say 315 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, just replacing a dryer’s thermal fuse that is blown out may not solve the problem as there most likely is a root cause for the excess heat that the thermal fuse detected and cut power to the excess heat as a safety precaution.

b) Dryer’s heating element is out. On electric dryers only, the heat is produced by providing 240 volts to the wire’s coils that make up an electric dryer’s heating element. Its a common failure item, and can be replaced relatively inexpensively. Call one of our dryer repair experts for a quote if you suspect your dryer’s heating element has failed and needs replacing.

c) Dryer’s gas won’t ignite. On gas dryers, a common failure item is the dryer’s igniter, which is a solid state equivalent of a pilot light. It’s purpose it to glow white hot so that the gas is instantly ignited when the gas valves open and spray gas adjacent to it’s radiant surface.

d) Incoming power problem. A failure of the incoming power voltage to the dryer’s terminal block is also a common reason dryer’s won’t heat up.  For electric dryers, 240 volts is actually needed to make the heating element coil glow, and a common failure is that one of the two lines containing 120 volts is out, whether it be L1 (line 1) or L2 (line 2).

So if you’re wondering where your nearest appliance repair company is located that also repairs dryers, look no further.  Call one of our appliance repair technicians today at (832) 321-3758 or email us at
