Oven Repair Man from 1st Call Appliance Repair Newton Provides Maintenance Tips
(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 28, 2012 ) Newton, MA When the Oven repair man broke the news to the customer that her stove was very old and not worth repairing, she was thrilled to have an excuse to buy a new one. The new stove was displayed in a large showroom full of shiny new kitchen appliances. When the new stove was delivered, she couldnt help but notice how much nicer it looked than the old one. She always took pride in keeping a clean house, but the stove top is another story!
When the oven repair man from 1st Call appliance repair (http://www.firstcallappliance.com/stove-maintenance-tips/) arrived to install the new stove, she thought about asking him for tips to keep it clean. Seriously, what would a service technician know about appliance cleaning? She took a chance and was pleased to discover that they knew a lot about new appliance surfaces.
1st Call Appliance service technicians are happy to share tips and information on appliance maintenance and cleaning. In fact, most appliance maintenance tasks involve some form of cleaning.
The oven repair specialists recommend reading the service manual to see if there are any restrictions to cleaning products to use. Some surfaces can be damaged by harsh cleaning chemicals. When in doubt, owners should use non-abrasive cloths and gentle detergent first.
Removable parts like drip pans and knobs can be soaked in soapy water, rinsed, dried and put back on. Wipe the surrounding area with a wet cloth. If spray cleaners are used, spray them onto the cloth or sponge rather than spraying directly onto the stove.
According to oven repair experts, most broiler pans are made of porcelain coated steel. These should only be cleaned with non-abrasive cleaners to protect the finish.
The all-important owners manual contains instructions for using the self-cleaning feature on the oven. The oven heats up to a very high temperature to incinerate food residue in the oven. Oven cleaner is not necessary and should not be used in most self-cleaning ovens as it could cause damage.
Many customers have asked about the light bulb inside the stove. Light bulbs do not last forever, so they will have to be replaced periodically. Most oven lights require a 40 watt appliance bulb that can be purchased at the hardware store or ordered from the manufacturer.
Stoves take a lot of abuse, so they may break down, even if they are very well taken care of. Oven repair can be dangerous for the average homeowner to attempt and should only be handled by a qualified service technician.
