How to Tell When You Need a Stove Replacement, Honolulu, Hawaii

If you move into a new residence that comes with appliances, it may be challenging to discern their age and level of use. As a first-time homeowner, know when it’s time to replace the stove so that you don’t experience inconveniences or safety hazards while cooking. Here are a few signs that indicate the need for a new range and oven.

4 Signs You Need a New Stove

1. Broken Control Panel

Control panels contain a series of buttons, switches, and knobs that allow you to set the temperature, adjust burner flames, and power the appliance on and off. When they cease to function, it’s often more financially feasible to replace the entire stove since control panels are expensive to repair.

2. Low Heat

applianceDirt and corrosion buildups on the burners may block flames, preventing the appliance from reaching the correct temperatures. Whether your stove is gas or electric, it needs to create enough heat to kill the bacteria in the foods you’re cooking. If cleaning and rust removal doesn’t resolve the issue, you’ll likely need a replacement.

3. Gas Odors

If you smell gas when the stove is off, there may be a leak where the seal or connector meets the supply line. Gas leaks are dangerous because they’re highly flammable. Since replacing the gas line to the appliance can be expensive, put the money toward a new model that includes various safety features, like an automatic shutoff and fire extinguisher.

4. Excessive Grime

Old stoves may collect stubborn grime buildups that have burned so far into the interior that they fuse to the metal or porcelain enamel. These areas are challenging to clean, and replacing the dirty interior components can be pricey. Prevent smoke and unpleasant odors by getting a new stove with built-in cleaning technology.
