Things Your Oven Repairman Wants You to Know

Ovens seem to always break when you need them most, such as just before a big holiday dinner, an important dinner party or the school’s bake sale. Here at Matic Service, we can quickly repair many problems and get your oven back to perfect working order; however, whether you call us or another repair company, there are some steps you can take to ensure that your service call goes as well as possible and that your oven is ready for use as sooner rather than later.

1. Find your make and model number before you call for help. When your oven breaks unexpectedly, it’s easy to go into panic mode and simply pick up the phone to get help, but taking a few minutes to locate the make and model number for your oven can help save time in the long run. With the model number, repair services can ensure they bring along the right parts and can access schematics and other information about your appliance that can lead to faster repairs. Most ovens have the model number printed on the inside, either on the door or the walls. The model number will also be printed on your owner’s manual.

2. Choose the right time for your service appointment. All too often, homeowners misjudge when they can actually be home from work, picking up the kids or appointments, which leads to missing service calls and having to reschedule. Select your time carefully to make sure you’ll be there when the repair service arrives.

3. Clear the area. Before the oven repair person comes to service your appliance, make sure there is adequate space for him or her to work.

4. Monitor children and pets. Here at Matic Service, we love kids and four-legged friends, but we’re also concerned about their safety. Keeping small children and pets away from the oven area allows repairpersons to work more quickly and keeps everyone safe.

By following these four simple tips, you can help ensure that the problem with your oven is promptly found and repaired, so that you can get back to using it. Contact us today to schedule your service appointment.
