Regardless of whether you use your oven to bake or just to warm up the leftovers from last night’s pizza, you’ll need to make sure your stove is spotless and well maintained. These simple tips from an appliance repair technician will help you to make a move and maintain your oven for years to come.

You should try to clean your stove no less than two times per year. In the event that you use your stove frequently, it should be cleaned even more often.

We recommend using the cleaning feature on your oven, as long as you follow the manufacturer’s rules. You’ll need to remain home during the process and be sure to open the window since it gets hot. After one cleaning cycle, let the stove cool for roughly six hours before wiping it cleaning it down.

We cautions against cleaning the onens handles — the source of several of our service calls in the past. While it’s enticing to pull them off and spray cleaner all around the area, you are basically splashing an electrical framework, which could make it short out or shock you.

4. Replace the gas

The new gas line can be purchased from the manufacturer of your new oven for a low price. They can change it during installation but you may pay extra for a service charge from your contractor.

5. Unplug your oven when cleaning with water

We recommend unplugging the stove in case you will clean within the oven by hand. Using water takes important safety measures to remove danger of electric shock.
