Oven igniter replacement cost

A gas oven igniter replacement costs $150 to $325 on average, depending on the brand and model. A new oven igniter costs $20 to $50 for the part alone. A broken igniter results in the oven not heating, clicking noises without lighting the gas, and gas leaks.

Cost to replace heating element in oven

The cost to replace a heating element in an oven is $150 to $450. A new heating element for an oven costs $15 to $100 for the part alone. Ovens have 2 heating elements, the baking coil, and the broil element. When they burn out or crack, ovens can’t heat properly.

Oven control board replacement cost

Oven control board replacement costs $150 to $600. A new oven control board costs $60 to $250 for the part alone. The control board regulates the temperature and all functions. Control board failure stops the oven from turning on or off and shows error codes on the display.

Cost to replace oven door

The cost to replace an oven door assembly is $175 to $700 installed for the whole door, depending on the brand and size. A new oven door costs $100 to $500 for the part on average, or up to $1,200 for high-quality OEM parts on designer ovens.

Oven glass replacement cost

Oven-door glass replacement costs $125 to $500 on average. Some doors have up to 4 layers of heat-treated glass panels inside for extra safety and heating efficiency. Most replacement door glass comes with a new frame.

Cost to replace oven thermostat

The cost to replace an oven thermostat is $100 to $350 on average. Signs of thermostat failure include the heating light never switching on or the oven not heating. A thermostat turns the heat on and off as needed to reach the right temperature setting.

Cost to fix oven sensor

The cost to fix an oven sensor is $100 to $250 for replacing the part or more with OEM parts and wiring. This sensor alerts the control board to the current oven temperature. When the thermostat sensor fails, the oven overheats or never reaches the set temperature.

Gas oven valve replacement cost

Gas oven valve replacement costs $150 to $400 on average. This safety valve is essential to prevent gas leaks because it regulates gas flow to the igniter. Always shut off the gas at signs of a gas leak before calling a professional for repairs.

Cost to replace oven insulation

The cost to replace oven-wrap insulation is $120 to $400 on average. Extra costs apply when deep cleaning the oven interior. Replace the internal insulation after rodent removal or when liquid spills get inside the range. Insulation maintains oven temperatures and prevents cabinet damage.

Gas stove igniter replacement price

An igniter for a gas stove costs $100 to $200 to replace. New stove-igniter prices are $20 to $50 for the part alone or more for OEM stove-top igniters with new wires. Range-burner igniter failure prevents the burners from lighting when switched on. Fixing an igniter stops gas leaks.

Stove heating element replacement cost

Stove heating element replacement costs $120 to $330 installed for a radiant-induction part on glass-top ranges. A metal-coil element replacement costs $90 to $175 installed. Stove element parts heat the cooktop alone. When an element burns out, the only repair possible is a replacement.

  • Oven-igniter or spark-electrode failure

  • Gas-oven safety valve failure

  • Oven-sensor failure

  • Blown-out thermal fuse

  • Gas-line connection issues

  • Faulty wiring to the oven or between the oven & control board

Can you repair a glass-top stove?

You can repair light scratches on a glass-top stove with a touch-up kit. For large scratches or cracks, call a professional to replace the damaged glass.
