Oven and Stove Repair vs. Replacement: Understanding the Cost Breakdown

Whether it’s hosting a dinner party or making Saturday brunch, you rely on your cooking range constantly, and when something goes wrong with it, you really don’t have time to waste.

Initially, you’re probably most concerned about how much this situation will cost you. Your oven wasn’t cheap, and the thought of shelling out the cash for a new one sounds truly agonizing.

So, let’s get down to it - when is it worth it to repair your oven or stove, and when will you need to replace it altogether? Read on to learn more about oven repair vs. replacement, how to better understand the cost breakdown, and why you should always prefer repair.

Oven Range Repair vs. Replacement

Puls oven range repair technicianFirst things first, is it better to repair or replace your oven range? That’s an easy one - unless your oven is over 15 years old, you should always move in favor of a repair, rather than a replacement.

Why is that? Believe it or not, most oven and stove related frustrations can be fixed quickly and easily, either on your own or via a professional, and many repairs can be completed within as little as an hour.

Repairing an oven is also much cheaper than replacing it, it’s better for the environment to reuse your oven for a longer period of time, and buying and installing a new range altogether is often a lengthy, difficult process.

Still, there is one factor that would warrant a replacement: its age. Oven ranges should usually last you around 10 to 15 years, so if your oven is over 15 years old, now could be an appropriate time to consider a full oven replacement.
