Gorenje Oven Won’t Turn On/Off [How To Fix]

If your Gorenje oven won’t turn on or off, you are in the right place. In this article, we will look at the causes of these problems and how to fix them.

Gorenje Oven Won’t Turn On — Causes And Solutions

Below, we talk about the possible reasons why your Gorenje oven won’t turn on and what to do about them.

1. Power Supply Problem

Ovens require a certain amount of voltage to operate. A gas oven requires 120 volts while an electric oven requires 240 volts. If the oven doesn’t receive the right amount of volts, it won’t turn on. To determine if your oven is receiving the right amount of voltage, you will need to test the outlet. If your oven isn’t plugged into an outlet, skip this section. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to test the outlet of your Gorenje oven…

Step 1: Get a voltmeter.

Step 2: Turn the dial of the voltmeter to the volts ac setting.

Step 3: Pull the oven away from the wall and go to the rear.

Step 4: Unplug the oven’s power cord from the electrical outlet.

Step 5: Insert the first probe of the voltmeter into the hole in the right side of the outlet. While doing this, make sure you don’t touch the metal part of the probe.

Step 6: Insert the other probe into the hole in the left side of the outlet.

Step 7: Look at the reading on the voltmeter. If your oven uses gas, the reading should be around 120 volts. If your oven is electric, the reading should be 240 volts. If the reading on the voltmeter doesn’t match the requirements, the outlet is probably the reason why your Gorenje oven won’t turn on. Contact an electrician to replace the outlet.

2. Thermal Cut Out

The thermal cut out burns out when the oven overheats or after a power outage occurs. If the thermal cut out fails, your Gorenje oven won’t turn and the display will be blank. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to replace the thermal cut out in your Gorenje oven…

Step 1: Disconnect the oven’s power before starting the repair. Do this by either unplugging the power cord from the outlet or switching the circuit breaker off.
