Gas Oven Issues

Is there anything more frustrating than a cooker which is heating slowly? You leave it to pre-heat for 20 minutes, but alas, it's still not at the desired temperature when you come to place your food in the oven! If you're experiencing this trouble with your gas oven, we're here to help you resolve this issue. 

 

Why is my gas oven heating slowly?

If your gas oven takes a little while to reach the temperature you've set it at, there's most likely an internal issue with your cooker. Here's a look at a few reasons your gas oven may be heating slowly.

 

  • Thermostat issues

The thermostat in your gas oven is the cooker part which controls the amount of gas within the oven. This allows the oven to reach a certain temperature and not heat up any further as the gas valve then closes. If your gas oven thermostat is faulty, it may not allow enough gas into the oven cavity for it to heat up properly.

  • Broken Igniter

Your gas oven igniter is responsible for releasing the flow of gas to your cooker which works to heat it up. If your ignitor is broken, the gas will not be able to fill your oven and the valve will not be able to release any gas. If you think this could be why your gas oven is heating slowly, simply replace your igniter and see if this helps the problem!

  • Faulty Gas Safety Valve

Your gas oven may be heating slowly due to a broken gas safety valve. If the gas safety valve is getting stuck or not opening up properly, this could lead to your cooker heating slowly and even getting too hot. This is a more serious issue than the aforementioned problems and you should call a professional or your gas company right away if you smell any gas near your cooker.

What is a Convection Oven

Don't get us wrong, we love a good cooker but even we understand how all this oven talk can be a bit overwhelming. With so many cookers on offer it can be hard to know which best suits your requirements, so let's take this one cooker at a time. In this blog, we will be answering the common question "what is a convection oven?", which will hopefully get you one step closer to knowing what will work for you. 

What is a convection oven?

So actually this really isn't a complicated question, it basically all comes down to the fan. A convection oven is a cooker that has a fan and exhaust system that pushes hot air evenly around the oven cavity. This allows the hot air to steadily cook your food and give you an even bake. This also cooks your food more quickly than a traditional oven would. 

This is why convection oven is generally the preferred cooker choice for many people these days. As the hot air is more evenly dispersed around the oven it means the person cooking can spend less time checking on the meal and having to turn baking trays around, for example. 

Benefits of a convection oven

  • Food cooks more evenly - As we mentioned above, allowing hot air to be pushed evenly around your oven means that your food is all heating up at the same pace. This should stop that old dilemma when you have half your meal cooking and the other still looking raw. That can be a real pain which is why an even bake is one of the most beneficial features of a conventional oven. 
  • Food cooks more quickly - We want our food and we want it now! Okay, maybe we aren't that impatient, but it is nice to know your food will be ready as quickly as possible without the risk of burning it. Okay, so there's always a risk you're going to burn your food if you aren't careful, but convection ovens still heat up food around 25% faster than traditional ovens. 
  • Saves energy - Because your food is cooking at a quicker speed and at a cooler temperature (generally speaking) you tend to use less energy to cook your meal. This makes convection ovens slightly more energy efficient which should save you money.

If you're looking to get a brand new convection oven for your kitchen you will be interested in visiting Kitchen Economy, a trusted supplier of high-quality ovens and cookers.

However, if you are actually looking to repair a convection oven which has broken down you've come to the right place.
