The main cause of a gas range not working at all is a faulty circuit breaker or fuse box. Gas ranges that use electronic components, such as self cleaning, electronic igniters and clocks, need electricity to function. Homeowners need to check if any of the electronic components turn on to troubleshoot the appliance. If not, the problem may lie with the circuit breaker or fuse box.

An oven that is not heating is usually caused by a faulty igniter. The glow bar needs to be hot enough to unlock the gas valve. Homeowners need to replace the faulty igniter to fix this problem. The part is inexpensive and relatively easy to replace using the appliance’s user manual.

Lastly, incorrect oven temperature is mostly caused by a faulty thermostat, or the thermostat sensing bulb is out of place. To fix the problem, homeowners should begin by inspecting the thermostat sensing bulb and re-aligning it if out of place. Homeowners also need to check that the thermostat is correctly calibrated, and replace the part if damaged.
