Question and Answers


My natural gas range's oven keeps coming On and it is turned Off. What could cause this?


It sounds like your oven thermostat has failed. This is the part behind the knob you turn to turn the oven on and set the temperature. It has a sensing bulb that goes into the oven cavity. It must be worn and is letting the switch inside close when in the off position.

To test this you can unplug your range from the wall and remove the wires on the back of the oven thermostat. Wrap the wires with tape to keep them from shorting and let it set 12-24 hours. If the oven doesn't come on while the wires are disconnected, the thermostat needs to be replaced.
