What can impact the cost of a job

Actual costs of oven and stove repair vary depending on the specifics of the job. Typically, appliance repairers take the following into consideration:

Type of oven or stove

Gas ovens and stoves are usually more expensive to fix than their electric counterparts. This is because gas is a lot riskier and harder to work with. Gas leaks from broken ovens can result in fires and other hazards for the repairman.

Extent of service

If your oven simply needs some cleaning on the inside in order to function properly, then you probably won’t get charged much. However, expect to pay more if certain parts in the oven or stove need replacing. This is more labour-intensive and might require more time to complete. Your expenses will likely increase especially if the repairman charges hourly rates.

Materials used

Ovens and stoves have multiple parts including the fans on the rangehood, bulbs, heating elements, ignition controls, etc. Replacing these parts can be costly especially if your oven or stove is an older model. Parts for older models can be hard to find and can be more expensive.

Different states, different rates

With an average price of only $55/hr, oven and stove repair services in Victoria is the most affordable in Australia. Rates are much higher in other states such as New South Wales where oven and stove repair services cost approximately $85/hr. Meanwhile, oven and stove specialists in Queensland charge around $90/hr for a repair service.
