Oven too hot or not hot enough
The oven temperature probe senses and measures the oven temperature. When it goes bad, the oven temperature could become too hot or too cold. Failure of the probe could also cause an error code on the digital display.

Oven door hard to open or close
The door hinge allows the door to open and close smoothly. Normal wear and tear or damage to the hinge prevents the door from opening or closing correctly, allowing heat to escape the oven. Instructions for this easy repair are in our DIY repair guide How to replace oven door hinges.
Hidden oven bake element not heating
The bake element, as its name suggests, provides the heat in the oven while baking. Sometimes damage to an element is easy to see, other times it fails with no visible evidence.
