In the winter,

a problem with your oven when it comes to cooking your Christmas dinner.

brilliant range of oven spares for various electric and gas appliances, so if
you do find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing a spare part for
your cooker, we are here to help!
Here are some of our
tips for checking that your oven is in tip top condition during the winter:
- Oven door seals are designed to help keep hot air in the oven cavity, so make sure your oven isn't losing much needed hot air from the oven cavity;
- Ensure your oven is reaching the temperature you have set it at, but more importantly, that it is staying at that temperature. If it isn't, your oven thermostat may be faulty;
- If your oven is being used a lot in the colder weather, it may encounter a problem, although it is unlikely. If your oven won't heat up at all, it is likely that you have a problem with one of the oven elements.
So as you can see, these parts are crucial components when it comes to having a fully functioning oven, so if you find yourself needing new oven elements, oven door seals, or a new oven thermostat, look no further than our fantastic oven spares that we have in stock!
