I want to thank you for your quick response in getting the part I ordered to me. I received it on Friday 11/05 and installed it the next day. It works just fine and when my wife is happy everyone in this house is happy.

Thanks again,
Loren P.

Installation successfully completed. Thanks for your support and the nice merchandise. We like the new racks better than the originals. Your prices are also more reasonable than the competition, for essentially the same products. Happy to provide an endorsement, if you use them.

How To Determine Which Oven Parts Need To Be Replaced

Troubleshooting oven parts and repairs can seem difficult, but it does not have to be. If your oven is not working properly, it needs to be repaired, and this can mean the replacement of oven parts. But which parts need to be replaced? This will depend on a lot of things, including the make and type of your oven as well as the specific types of problems that are happening. Whether your oven is gas or electric can make a difference, because each type uses different parts to get the same results. Before you can repair the problem you have to know which oven parts are causing it. If your oven is not heating up at all, the cause can be a number of things. You may need to replace defective oven parts or you may need to perform other repairs instead. First make sure that you are getting power, and gas if your appliance is a gas oven. Without power neither type of oven may work, and if there is no gas reaching the appliance then it will not heat up either. Make sure the wall socket is providing electricity, and if there is a gas line attached make sure that this is connected properly, is not clogged or obstructed, and that it does have gas going through it.


With gas ovens, there are a number of oven parts that may need to be replaced. If the broil igniter is old or weak, there is a safety valve that will not open, so that no gas leak occurs because the gas is not ignited as it flows over the igniter. Other possible oven parts that may be responsible can include the thermostat, the safety valve for the gas, or the selector switch. The igniter is the most common repair needed though, so you may want to start there and then work your way down the list of possible causes. One way to tell if the igniter is bad is to look at it. The igniter should glow a bright yellow or white color, and if it is red or is not bright and glowing, the igniter may not be reaching the needed temperature to ignite the gas. Replacing defective oven parts will resolve the problem, so you can use your oven again.


If your appliance is electrical then you may need different oven parts to repair the problem. Electric ovens involve a broiler element and a bake element, and either of these oven parts may go bad and need to be replaced. If the broiler will work but the oven does not heat up at lower temperatures, the bake element may be bad. If the oven will bake at normal temperatures but will not broil then the broiler element may need to be replaced. If you need advice or assistance in replacing oven parts, no matter what type or make of appliance you are repairing, there are many online resources that can do this. You will find the answers to all your oven repair questions.


If you are going to replace microwave parts, there are some basic steps that you should follow regardless of what repairs are being done. The first is to make sure that you unplug the appliance right before starting the project. Never assume that the appliance is still unplugged, and start to remove and replace microwave parts without verifying this factor. This will not only prevent any electrical hazards but also prevent any possible radiation from being present during the repairs when you have the unit disassembled. It may be a good idea to print out a step by step repair guide for the microwave parts you are replacing. If you get in the middle of the repair project and then need advice or assistance, you can always look at the printed guide for instructions on what to do next. This will help your microwave appliance repairs go smoothly, with a minimum of delays or frustrations.
