A homeowner can do a great job of maintaining a range on their own, and this is important to maximize its lifespan, in which ranges can last around fifteen years with proper maintenance. To get your money’s worth, there are several things that you need to do to avoid repairs that are preventable.
Prioritize Routine Maintenance
One of the most important parts of your range is the control panel as this is what you rely on to know the temperature or heat level for safe and proper cooking. To protect these decals you need to clean them with soap and water, and with a non-abrasive pad to avoid scratching off the decals accidentally.
Other parts of the range that should be cleaned on routinely throughout the year to avoid unnecessary range appliance repair include the stove top, door, racks, interior, and broiler.
Replace Parts when Needed
It is pretty straightforward to replace certain parts of a range, such as the oven racks, oven light bulbs, broiler pans, or burner bowls. While routine maintenance will extend the lifetime of these parts, you will usually need to replace these parts after you have had the same range for several years.
Leave Complicated Work to Professionals
Once you run into a problem with your range that you cannot solve with a simple fix, you should then rely on a licensed professional that is able to diagnose the problem and come up with a solution.
Although you may be crafty enough to run your own diagnosis, the risk that comes with potentially making the wrong assessment and replacing a certain part could lead to another problem that needs fixing.
In this case, you are best off relying on professional help for complicated problems.
