How to Repair Kitchen Appliance Parts

In my previous article, I wrote about some of the kitchen appliance parts that most people end up buying on their own when they have problems with them. It was an extremely easy read and provided a nice overview of the most common parts that people end up having problems with. This article is going to go into more detail about some of the more uncommon parts. My goal in this article is to help you become a more informed shopper. As always, before purchasing any kind of appliance parts it is recommended to test them for yourself to ensure they work properly.

Kitchen Appliance Parts

When testing any appliance parts, it is recommended that you follow a few simple steps. First, you should always unplug the power from the device. Then, you should plug a small cable back in so that you can test the part without having to use the power. Once you have everything set up, you will be ready to test the appliance parts.

The first part that we are going to test is the blower fan. To do this, you should remove the three screws that are holding the cabinet door open. You should then locate the blade and check to see if it works properly or if it is sticking or not. If your blades are sticking or if the cabinet door is not opening and closing smoothly, you should remove the screw and replace it with a new one.

Next, we will check the gas element. To do this, you should remove the three screws that are holding the gas element in place on the appliance. You should then attach the wire to the gas element and turn it on to make sure that it works. You will probably want to use a multimeter to test the continuity between the ground and the wire. If the meter shows gaps in the range of continuity, you should replace the element.

One of the most commonly replaced parts in the kitchen is the oven’s thermostat. To test this part, you should plug in the oven and turn it on. If the oven doesn’t rise or fall into the cooking temperature when you flip it on, you should remove the thermostat from the appliance and replace it with a new one. Test other parts of the appliance to ensure that all parts are working correctly before replacing the thermostat.

The final parts that we will check our the refrigerator and freezer doors. To test these, you should place the door shut and open it. If it freezes up, you should pull the door down and then release it. If it doesn’t move at all, you should close the freezer door and release it. Lastly, if the door doesn’t open at all, you should try opening it again. Make sure that all of the parts are working correctly.
