How Much Will Replacement Nuwave Oven Parts Cost ?

NuWave Infrared OvenNuWave ovens, like most kitchen appliances, are prone to break-downs and gradual wear-and-tear, which force the user to look for NuWave oven parts as replacements. A simple search will give you a number of options that can lead to confusion. Make a mistake, and you could end up paying for shipping back to the warehouse. It is for this reason that we have done some research and brought together a list of the most common NuWave oven parts that can malfunction, along with the most accurate market prices currently prevalent.

Power Head – This is perhaps the most sophisticated of the parts, and therefore requires a good amount of money to replace. The most common of the power heads is the Power Head Classic, which is priced at $55 on the official site. This analog power head is the focus of the most complaints, so if you have a NuWave oven that uses an analog power head, you might want to be prepared to purchase this particular oven part within 2 years. These aside, there are digital power heads, whose prices vary depending on the availability of a particular color. At the time of writing, the blue/white oven parts were priced the lowest at $44.85, while the silver ones demanded $70.

NuWave Oven Dome – Many customers complained that their NuWave oven domes cracked after a few months of usage, and had to be replaced with a $25 dome. However, the company has now introduced a supposedly better variant of the NuWave oven parts, which is called the Power Dome. While the ordinary dome cost around $25, the Power Dome comes for double the amount ($49.95). One can hope that the costly Power Dome lives up to its promise, especially since the ordinary dome is already out of stock on the main site (it is available on eBay).

Cooking Rack – Cooking racks are perhaps the most diverse of NuWave oven parts in terms of size, so it is important that you know which size you need. This is all the more important because all the three available sizes – 1inch/4inch reversible, 2inch and mini – are priced almost identically ($15 for the first two and $12.95 for the mini rack).

Base – It is rare to find a customer who complains about the base, but some did complain that along with the plastic dome, the plastic base cracked as well due to the heat generated. As far as NuWave oven parts go, the base is perhaps the most confusing, since the images shown for almost all the models is virtually the same, as is the price ($8). You should therefore read the description carefully to see if the color/model combination that you’re looking for is indeed the one you’re being offered.

The above list of NuWave oven parts does not list all the parts, but then neither do all the parts malfunction. The ones that have been listed, however, are the usual culprits and therefore need to be replaced at least one or two times during the lifetime of a NuWave oven. Hence, while it would be over-cautious to purchase these oven parts in advance, one should have an idea of the cost of replacements if he/she plans to use a NuWave oven.


  • To who it may concern
    If the dome was not drop or hit as mine was not.. why should the dome
    If there is so many out there with a crack dome issues why is there not recall on the dome?? This has nothing to do with
    the warranty, this a defect..
    Recall that would be the correct way to handle this issue, and show that you appreciate your customers and they can trust that you stand behind your product.
    Thanks for your time.

    • I agree but In the end where is a new dome or its done? If so then what back to a normal oven? Mine is cracked but not too far yet I hope not. I wash it a carefully as possible and still make meals. For the money is ok, for now unless something else to make food cheep then Im stuck unless you have an answer then lets go make our own and make a million bucks or more he he

  • Yes this cooker is a good product but the dome covers are a big joke! Mine started cracking within one year and finally fell apart. I threw it in the trash. I do not understand with today’s technology , why they cannot make a plastic dome cover that will be durable. Very disappointed with nuwave company because they will not give replacement domes .

  • My dome lasted 10 months. Bought upgrade at discount. Now power head is squealing. Not long before it goes 16 months. ?

  • At first I was exciting. Then suddenly the dome cracked. I did not hesitate to call an ordered a dome right way, it took longer to get to me, than anticipated. Never mind shortly the dome broke again I’m the only user I m very careful. I think nuwave should just do a recall and replace it for free. and it was $14.99 now its $24.99 and up, not fair I wants to continue using my Nuwave. Hope to hear from you soon.

  • I have 2 of these and both of my domes cracked, never dropped either one of them…it started at the bottom and spanned from there. This is from use. One of my ovens tops burned out as well. Yes I agree on a recall of products. I also own two of the nuwave burners…my husband dropped one, the other works still, and I love using it.

  • My dome crack and I paid for a new dome.this one has now cracked again.they last about a year half this time. I use my nuwave at least 4 times a my new wave but it has cost to much to keep replacing….

  • I agree with Wanda Bogus, this should be a recall item, leaves a bad taste in Your mouth to think that these things just crack and are not up the same standard as the rest of the machine, and the cost is about half the cost of a new machine and who knows if the part will crack again

  • I have had my Nuwave for at least 10 years & it is only now that I need to replace a couple of parts. I have a digital white unit that came with the extender ring & many racks & pans, etc. The top of the base has cracked through almost all the way around & the power dome has yellowed with age. Other than these two issues my Nuwave runs like a champ. I haven’t been able to locate any parts for the oven in white, only the black model.

  • I have had a Nuwave Pro Plus for over two years and the powerhead decided to die on me today right in the middle of cooking. I have become dependent on it as my sole source of cooking. I guess I will just have to buy another one. I am disappointed they don’t make these to last longer.

  • I have had 4 NuWave ovens. I really like them, however, all four domes have cracked! This is getting ridiculous. Do you have any domes that don’t crack? Why don’t you send me one at your expense to try out….isn’t your product worth having happy customers? Look forward to hearing from you!

  • I have a Nuwave Pro Plus oven also, my story is the same. The entire dome is so badly cracked from delicate, gentle usage that I have to replace it, after 6 months of frequent usage.
    Nice oven, unfortunately, unless the issue of the dome remains unresolved, this product will eventually be labeled – customers alert/beware lemon.
