Which is Better, Stove Repair or Replacement?

Stove Repair or Replacement

You depend on your cooking range frequently, whether you’re hosting a dinner party or preparing Saturday breakfast, so if something goes wrong, there’s really no time to waste. You’re probably more worried about the financial impact of this circumstance at first. Your stove wasn’t cheap, and between stove repair and replacement, the idea of having to pay for a replacement oven sounds downright unpleasant.

Let’s get right to the question at hand: When is it worthwhile to repair your oven or stove, and when do you need to completely replace it? Continue reading to discover more about oven replacement vs. repair, how to better comprehend the cost breakdown, and why you should always choose repair.

 

Stove Repair vs. Stove Replacement

Before anything else, should your oven range be repaired or replaced? It’s simple: unless your oven is more than 15 years old, you should always opt for a repair over a replacement. Believe it or not, the majority of problems with ovens and stoves can be resolved quickly and easily, either by you or a professional, and many fixes may be finished in as little as an hour. Additionally, it is more environmentally friendly to reuse your oven for extended periods of time, and buying and installing a new range is frequently a time-consuming, challenging operation. Repairing an oven also costs far less than replacing it. Its age, however, is one aspect that would call for a replacement. If your oven is older than 15 years, it may be time to fully replace it. Oven ranges should typically last you between 10 and 15 years.

 

Average Stove Repair Cost

Depending on the degree of damage, the materials needed for a repair, and the amount of time required to resolve your particular issue, the average oven repair cost normally ranges from $50 to $200. In contrast to most other repair firms, Yeobuild HomeRepair offers oven and stove repairs starting at a reasonable amount, and we can come out and fix it as soon as the same day.

Average Stove Replacement Cost

It might come as a shock to you, but purchasing a brand-new oven range is not a cheap endeavor. The typical cost of a new oven range, according to Consumer Reports, can range from around $1,000 to more than $3,000.

The obvious choice would be to repair the oven if you haven’t budgeted for this significant price or if you believe you can get by with your current oven for a few more years. Although you can try to solve the problem on your own, it is always best to have a professional come out and fully diagnose it.

 

Signs It’s Time for A Stove Repair

Hot plates or burners don’t heat up correctly

The burner is the most crucial component of any cooktop, whether it be an electric or gas stove. If you use gas, clean the burner caps and grates if the flame it produces is no longer blue or flickers or flashes from blue to red to yellow. The flame can be flaring because of certain particles. It might be time for repairs or, at worst, a replacement if your stove top is clean but the flame isn’t glowing blue.

When an electric stove is turned on high, especially a ceramic stove, the coils should turn a bright red. If not, look for rust or other corrosion hints that might be preventing it. Put your induction-ready cookware with a little water in it on top of the hot plate for induction stoves. If the water doesn’t reach a boil after a few minutes, there might be an issue. To troubleshoot, refer to your manual just in case the issue can be fixed quickly. If not, finding a replacement might be your next move.

You smell gas

Don’t start the stove. Your first clue that there is a leak between the gas tank and the stove is that gas contains scented additives. However, do not immediately turn on your stove if you smell gas before or after turning on your gas tank. Instead, shut off the gas tank right away. Then, check the tubing connecting the gas tank and your stove, turn on the exhaust, open the kitchen windows, and correctly reconnect and reattach the regulator and tubes. If you turn on the gas tank and still smell gas, it may be necessary to replace the stove, if the leak is coming from there, or the tubes and their attachments.

The control panel is inoperable

The most expensive component of an electric stove to replace is likely the control panel. Choose a replacement if a button stops functioning or malfunctions when pressed, preventing you from successfully cooking on the stove. It might cost less than replacing the component, for sure.

There is a superficial crack

There is no getting around a cracked tempered glass top on your electric stove. Purchase a replacement. It won’t be safe to cook on anymore.

Poor spark igniters could be the cause of a gas stove not lighting. With a gas lighter, you can quickly fix this. Examine the wiring in electric stoves. Before use, all exposed wire should be tightened up because it could be a fire hazard. Broken wiring, on the other hand, if the wires have been severed, should be replaced and may call for a new unit or a replacement. For their suggestions, check with your manufacturer.
