Oven not working properly

2 Replies


My tenants have complained that their oven seems to have stopped working properly. They said It turns on and produces some heat but not enough to actually cook anything. Also a couple of the burners won't light without holding a lighter to the gas.

Any one know what this could be and how to remedy? Or time for a new oven all together?


New gas range for about $800. Lowe's will deliver, but not  hook up a gas stove. They will take away ,the old one if it is already disconnected. If you have an option to use an electric stove, I would probably go that route. Usually there is both a gas line and an electric outlet behind the stove.

@Jen H. You can call a repairman to fix both. I do have insurance for those and all I do is call sears (where i bought it) and they'll have someone dispatched and have it fixed. Try calling sears and see if they can recommend their repairman.
