The discovery of fire by early humans signaled the dawn of a new era that of eating cooked food. Our ancestors discovered that eating cooked food had incredibly health benefits as it killed some live parasites which would otherwise kill them after ingesting food raw, some of the parasites killing them immediately whilst others slowly.

Take a look of this picture below of a woman’s brain from China which is infested by the Taenia solium worm that was slowly eating her brain, she got these tapeworms by eating raw or half cooked pork meat.

The image shows muscle tissue and brain that are filled with parasite larvae. The bright squiggly lines and dots on the brain scan are cross section views of parasite larvae.

Premised on these findings’ humans have since embarked on a journey to try and harness the cooking ability of fire and after countless centuries finally came up with the famous stove and oven. No home is complete without these two important household appliances as food is a primary need for every living person. Without eating a person can die from starvation in as little as 12 days.

 To make life easier most manufactures combine these two appliances into one single unit which contains a stove and oven. Since the stove and oven play an important role in our everyday life it’s vital to know everything about them, which is what this article aims to do.

Let’s explore the stove and oven in details and find out more about their benefits, common problems etc.

WHAT IS A STOVE?

Electrical Stove

A stove is a device that burns fuel or uses electricity to generate heat on top of the apparatus whilst an oven generates heat inside. There are many types of stoves, such as the kitchen stove, the wood-burning stove or the coal stove but in this article, we will focus on the electrical kitchen stove. The electrical kitchen stove is built with an oven to make one single unit in most cases.

Let’s take a look of the components of an electric stove and oven.

COMPONENTS OF A STOVE

Heating Elements: –Some of the most important parts of an electric stove are the heating elements, which convert electrical energy into heat for cooking. An electric range may use one of a number of different heating element styles, including traditional coil elements, metal disks, hidden radiant heating elements below the range surface or magnetic induction elements.

Thermostat: –An electric stove’s thermostat is a simple device that monitors the temperature inside the oven and disengages or engages the heating elements as necessary. The thermostat is connected to the control knobs and may also supply a digital read-out of the desired temperature or activate a light when the oven is heated to the desired level.

Fuses: –Electric stoves use a series of fuses to protect the heating elements. These fuses will blow if too much electricity flows through them, preventing the surge from reaching the heating elements. Electric stove fuses are generally located in a closed fuse box near the base of the oven or behind the stove assembly.

Racks: –Electric stoves use conventional oven racks as the cooking surface within the oven. Instead of a separate compartment for broiling, as some gas ovens have, electric stoves require the cook to raise one of the oven racks to a higher position to place the food directly below the upper heating element.

Control Knobs: –An electric stove’s control knobs give the user a way of setting the temperature of the oven and activating each of the burners on the range individually. The knobs also control the oven’s self-cleaning feature and set the timer.

Timer: –Electric stoves usually include a digital or mechanical timer for ensuring that food stays in the oven for the proper amount of time. The timer may be linked to a clock or separate from it. Some electric stoves also include a self-timer for setting the oven to turn on or off at a specified time. Other timers simply buzz or beep when they reach the desired time, alerting the user that it’s time to check the food or add ingredients.

COMPONENTS OF AN OVEN

Broil element: –Provides direct heat on top of your dish when broiling

 Oven rack: –Can readily transition to any rack position

Bake element: –Provides the main source of heat from the bottom of the oven

Convection fan: –Circulates air to help even temperatures throughout the oven

Fan blade: –Part of the convection fan to help create airflow

Convection baffle: –Encases the convection fan

Hidden back tray: –Protects the bake element from spills and drips

These are the basic components that constitute a stove and oven.It’s important to keep a stove and oven in pristine condition since when dealing electric stoves any kind of fault can have disastrous effects, from undercooking to burning food or even worse burning the whole house because of an electrical malfunction which is why you need to be on the lookout for any signs of any faults. Let’s take a look at some of the common stove and oven faults.

6 COMMON STOVE & OVEN PROBLEMS

BURNT WIRE CONNECTION

Sometimes the bake or broil power supply wires will burn out near the heating element and show visible damage. These need to be replaced to get the stove functioning again. In most cases you should find out why they were burnt in the first place.

You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians to come and take a look if you are in the Gauteng province.

BLOWN THERMAL FUSE

If the oven gets too hot, some electric models might blow a thermal fuse. This will cause power to the oven being shut hence the oven not working.

You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians to come and test the fuse for continuity and conduct other diagnostics if you are in the Gauteng province.

DEFECTIVE THERMOSTAT SENSOR

Depending on the model, the oven may have a thermostat or an oven control board that works with an oven sensor. The thermostat or sensor monitors the oven temperature. When the oven reaches the desired temperature the oven control board shuts the voltage to the element. This cycle repeats itself throughout the cooking process to maintain proper temperature.

However, if the sensor or thermostat is faulty, the oven may not turn on at all.

You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians to come and test the sensor’s resistance and conduct other diagnostics if you are in the Gauteng province.

DEFECTIVE CONTROL BOARD

The control board cannot easily be tested and is likely the culprit in most cases when the stove or oven is not switching on after all other checks have been done and yielded no problems. Only a professional can check if it’s faulty as you can only visually inspect it for signs of burning or shorts.

You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians to come and check the control board and conduct other diagnostics if you are in the Gauteng province

OVEN DOOR WON’T SHUT OR OPEN

If the oven door doesn’t stay shut, you may need to replace the hinge. This requires disassembling the door and possibly removing the side panel as well. If you need help, call an appliance repair technician for assistance.

OVEN WON’T SELF CLEAN

Several common oven issues can prevent an oven from self-cleaning. Make sure the door switch is locking the oven properly since the self-cleaning cycle won’t begin unless the door is locked.

If that’s not the issue, there could be a problem with the temperature control thermostat, wiring, oven control board, or thermal fuse.

Testing and repairing these components requires special skills and tools, so leave the job to an appliance repair specialist. You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians to come and diagnose the problem if you are in the Gauteng province

How do you diagnose electric stove and oven problems?

Before you begin to inspect why your electric stove is not working, unplug it from its power source.

Today’s electric ranges require 240 volts of alternating current (AC) that separate and travel through two legs of 120 volts of ac and you don’t want that causing through your body.

After switching it off, call the experts before you do more damage than good to the appliance in you do it yourself crusade. If you are based in the Gauteng province in South Africa, call Isocool pty Ltd with more than 10 years’ experience working with electric stoves.
