Whether your range requires a straightforward repair or a complete replacement depends on its diagnosis. If there is an expensive problem plaguing it, then repairs are not typically a cost-effective decision. However, common issues with displays, ignitors, heating elements and other isolated areas are often ideal for repairs because once they're fixed, your range will continue to operate as new. Your appliance repair team should give you a fair analysis and advise what potential solutions are available and how it impacts the lifespan of your appliance.
Does your repair company offer a comprehensive and fair warranty program? Range repairs that don't have a parts guarantee or a labor guarantee will result in you incurring additional costs if your range breaks down again in the near future. These recurring costs of repeated repairs can end racking up an expensive bill. That's why it's best to enlist the help of a trusted and certified professional that employs experts, leverages premium parts, and provides top-notch workmanship the first time around and backs in up with comprehensive warranty.
What's the expected lifespan of your range, and how far into that lifespan are you?
It's usually not worth spending on a repair for a range that is close to its end. Instead, it's beneficial to invest, repair costs towards a new range that will go the distance.
