With that being said, we don’t recommend using your oven’s self-cleaning featured right before having people over for a big holiday feast.

While this is a great, highly convenient feature that makes oven maintenance a breeze, it does tend to produce a bit of an odour while it’s doing its job, so I’d recommend running your self-clean cycle a few days before your expecting any company.

Plus, if you end up using it and making a mess in it while your cooking for and entertaining your guests, you’re likely going to be running a cleaning cycle after everyone has left. In other words, it might be best to wait until after the holidays to run a self-clean cycle.

For instance, one of the most common issues we see, especially with older appliances, is that the appliance may have undergone a sudden surge of power, which caused your kitchen’s main electrical breaker to trip.

Sometimes, this will happen during a storm or a power outage; however, it can also happen if your stove or oven has an electrical short. If you have a short, you’ll continue to trip the breaker every time that you turn your appliance on.

Therefore, if you suspect that your appliance has a short, don’t hesitate to contact a trained appliance repair technician, who will make sure that any repairs applicable will be covered under your warranty.

On older oven or stove models, the control knobs are one component that gets a lot of use. This means that they’re prone to wearing out or having the numbers/setting rubbed off. Replacing your stove’s control knobs is as simple as gently twisting and pulling them off, then sliding the new ones on.

However, you must make sure to purchase the correct replacement knobs, or else they might not fit.

Don’t hesitate to contact Denver’s Best for installation, maintenance, and repairs near you.
