WHAT’S THE FIRST THING TO CHECK WHEN A GAS OVEN STOPS HEATING?
The first thing to do when your gas oven stops heating is to check to see whether a circuit breaker has been tripped. If it hasn’t, you will want to inspect whether the outlet the oven is plugged into has gone bad. After ruling out these basic electrical issues, consult your owner’s manual, and check the oven burner flame by using a mirror. Insert a mirror to one side of the burner. Look into the mirror to check for a flame to see whether the heating element is lighting.
Note: When attempting to determine why a gas oven won’t heat, it is recommended to consult a licensed technician to inspect and identify the solution. Whenever you are experiencing technical difficulties, consult the KitchenAid service page. If your oven is overheating, check out our helpful guide.
