With the evolution of home and commercial cooking, the names we give to the appliances we use for cooking have also changed with the diversification in the cooking appliances market. However, the appliances have their distinct differences and names. A range is an oven with an attached cooktop, and it is the most common cooking appliance in millions of households in the world. There are different types of ranges depending on the type of fuel they will use. This includes electric ranges, gas ranges, as well as dual fuel ranges that employ both electricity and gas as fuel.

A Red Glow In Your Oven Though It Is Not Heating
This puzzling problem crops up in gas ranges that have a glow-bar ignition system. This is a safety feature in gas-fueled ranges that block the passage of gas if it does not ignite. The glow-bar in the oven will glow but still be cold. This due to an old and worn glow-bar that cannot get hot enough to open the gas safety valve.
A Noisy Flame on the Surface Burners
This problem does not affect old ranges, but new ones as well. This is an indication that there is either too much gas or air getting into the burner assembly. For this problem, leave it to the Unimaster Limited gas range repair professionals to determine how much gas and air ought to enter the burner assembly.
Incorrect Oven Temperature
A thermostat in the range controls the temperature in the oven part of the range. The thermostat has a capillary and a liquid-filled bulb. When the liquid in the bulb gets heated, it expands, putting pressure on a diaphragm that controls a switch to regulate the amount of gas into the oven’s burner. With continued usage, the thermostat is sure to lose the set calibration, or the bulb comes loose. This will translate in the thermostat giving wrong temperature readings. Contact our gas range repair professionals to fix the thermostat least you get burnt food in the oven.
Oven Too Hot on the Outside
The oven part of the range can sometimes get too hot on the outside. This happens especially when the seal on the door is broken. Heat escapes through the door causing the exterior of the oven to overheat. For instance, during the self-cleaning process, the temperatures can range between 750 degrees Fahrenheit and 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Many of the modern ovens have door locks that prevent you from opening the door at this time. If the lock is malfunctioning, you can get severe burns. Contact Unimaster Limited electrical range repair technicians to repair the door lock and replace the seal with a high-quality seal.
The Surface Burners Do Not Heat Up
This is one of the common range problems, and it can cause a great inconvenience, especially when you are doing the heavy cooking. The burnt out burners manifest have bubbles or breaks on the surface of the element. It can also be due to corroded wires and loose connections.
