Should You Repair or Replace Your Jenn-Air Oven?

May 05, 2016

Has your Jenn-Air oven broken down again?

If your oven is breaking down on you repeatedly, then it’s time to start thinking about replacing it. Your Jenn-Air is going to last you years, but not forever. While repairs do cost less, if you’re constantly spending money to get your oven fixed, it will likely cost you more in the long run.

A skilled technician will be able to tell you if your oven is worth saving or not. If you’re unsure if you should get your oven repaired or replaced, give the team at Repair Care a call. We offer quick and affordable repairs in the Vancouver area; plus we’ll be able to help you decide if your oven is worth a repair or not.  You can also read our guide for figuring out if worth it to repair an oven or replace it.


Age: If your oven is only a couple of years old, then it is better to repair it. While appliances aren’t going to last you a lifetime, they should last you quite a few years. Ovens typically last about 15 – 20 years, so if you haven’t had yours quite that long, then it’s more likely going to last longer after a repair.

Amount of repairs: Is this your first time getting it repaired? If yes, or you’ve only had to get it repaired a handful of times, then you’re better off getting a repair. All appliances will run into problems every once in awhile, and often are very easy for a skilled technician to fix. So if this is your first time needing a repair, give your local repairman a call instead of heading out to buy a new one.

Warranty: Is your oven still under warranty? Most manufacturers only offer warranties for a year or two, so if your oven is still under warranty, then it’s probably only a couple of years old and can easily be repaired. Plus you repair will be covered under the warranty, so you have to spend less money.

Cost of repair vs. replacement: If it is cheaper to get your oven repaired then to replace it, such as a minor repair, and your oven isn’t past its expiration date, than it is worth the repair.

Energy efficiency: Newer models of ovens are built with the environment in mind, and are made to be energy efficient. If your oven isn’t costing you extra to run it, then you’ll benefit from a repair.


Age: Again, ovens usually last about 15 – 20 years, so if yours is around that age or older than it is probably time to replace it. It isn’t likely to last long before it needs another repair, so it’s better to just get a new one.

Amount of repairs: Have you had to repair your oven so many times you’ve lost count? If yes, then it’s time to start shopping around for a new one. While appliances are likely to run into a couple of minor bumps here and there, you shouldn’t have to spend a fortune repairing them constantly. Instead, invest your hard-earned money into an oven that works.

Warranty: If oven is no longer under warranty, is decades old, and you’ve had to repair it constantly, then it is time to get it replaced. Not only is it no longer covered, it probably isn’t worth the repair.

Cost of repair vs. replacement: If the cost of your repair is more expensive than buying a new oven, then you’re better off buying a new unit.

Energy efficiency: If you oven is old and sucking up all of your house’s energy, then you’ll benefit more from buying a new oven. New models are cheaper to run, use much less energy, and are less likely to break down as often.

Don’t forget, that regular maintenance, as well as getting your oven repaired as soon as you start to notice trouble will ensure that your Jenn-Air ovens last for years!
