Find the most common Cannon oven problems below
Cannon oven not working
If your Cannon oven won’t turn on this is typically related to electrical difficulties. This could be incoming power, a defective socket, switch, or plug, or a terminal block connection where the wires have burnt out. A qualified engineer will be able to safely check all of these to find the source of the problem.
Cannon fan oven not heating up
The most common cause of your oven not heating up is the failure of the heating elements, which can wear out or break over time. But this can also be caused by a faulty temperature sensor or one that’s touching the oven wall. Faulty wiring can also be the culprit and this will need checking out by an experienced technician.
Cannon oven not cooking evenly
The heating elements and the temperature sensor are generally the two main culprits here. If the heating element isn’t glowing red it will need replacing, and when there’s a fault in the sensor your oven temperature won’t rise. The bake and broil elements should also be inspected, as well as the oven fan, as these components also play an important part in ensuring your food cooks evenly.
Cannon oven not heating to the right temperature
This problem can result in your food being undercooked or burning, often caused by the temperature sensor not working properly. The resistance of the sensor should rise with the internal oven temperature - if this isn’t happening the part may need to be replaced. Heating elements may also be the reason why your oven isn’t responding, and there may also be a calibration issue.
Cannon oven overheating
If your oven is cooking at excessively high temperatures and cutting out this points to a problem with the thermostat which regulates the heat inside your oven. If the thermostat is defective it’ll need to be replaced.
A faulty cooling fan can also cause this to happen as the fan is responsible for evenly spreading out the heat generated by the heating element. If the fan has stopped working it will need to be repaired or replaced.
Cannon oven door not closing
When your oven door won’t close there are several reasons why. It could be that the oven door hinges have broken and this will ultimately cause the oven not to retain the heat. Or the handle may have become damaged or broken resulting in the door being unusable. These issues can easily be fixed by an appliance repair technician.
Cannon oven having prolonged cooking times
If you find that your food is taking longer to cook than normal this could be related to the oven door not closing securely, resulting in heat escaping. A common cause here is a defective oven door seal that attaches to the rim of the oven door to keep the heat in. seals can easily be replaced as part of your oven repair service.
A faulty oven element can also lead to increased cooking times as it won’t provide enough heat to properly cook your food within the allotted time.
