If you are having one of these issues, you will need to contact a professional to assist you instead. The oven won’t turn on: If the oven won’t turn on, you most likely need to run a voltage check but do not attempt this by yourself. There could be an issue with the controls, the bake or broil element, a broken wire or little to know power coming into the unit if the oven is electric. If the oven operates with gas, it could be a problem with the gas controls, the gas valve, the igniter, or even a broken wire. Contact a professional.
