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.

Hotpoint Oven Troubleshooting 

Do you have a Hotpoint oven? If so, you're not alone! According to Hotpoint's own statistics, every 2 out of 3 homes in the UK have a Hotpoint appliance and one is sold every 19 seconds. 

However, even though these stats are impressive, this doesn't mean you won't come across some oven troubles in the future. We've put together some Hotpoint oven troubleshooting tips to help you with this issue. 

  • The Hotpoint oven fan runs for a long time after cooking

Hotpoint appliances are typically fitted with a cooling fan to stop the oven getting too hot. When the oven is switched off, the fan continues to spin because it is still cooling down the oven. This is nothing to worry about and does not require you to take any action.

However, if your Hotpoint oven fan does not turn off or on, this is cause for concern. A working oven needs fan to cool down after cooking, so it is necessary to get your oven fan replaced if you think it may be broken. 

If you would like to replace your oven fan, you can browse our wide range of fans suitable for a Hotpoint cooker.

  • I am having trouble lighting the gas rings on my Hotpoint cooker

There's nothing more frustrating than a gas oven hob which will not light. If you're having this issue, the first troubleshooting step is to ensure there's nothing blocking the burner or burner caps. 

If you've found they're clean as a whistle, the next step is to check your glass lid (if you have one). If you find this is not in the correct upright position, it could be causing your gas supply to shut off. 

Finally, if neither of these checks seems to solve the problem, you can find a replacement part for your Hotpoint gas rings here. 

  • The clock on my Hotpoint oven isn't turning on

A common problem with Hotpoint cookers is the oven clock wears out and no longer tells the time. While this may seem like a minor problem, if you like to time cooking your food using the oven clock, it can be very frustrating. 

If you find your Hotpoint oven clock is no longer switching on when you turn your oven on, the best solution is to find a replacement. This is not costly and can save you plenty of time. Browse the oven clocks suitable for Hotpoint cookers

We hope this has helped with your Hotpoint oven troubleshooting! If you require any further assistance with your cooker, you can browse our range of Hotpoint oven replacements or give us a call on 02920 453 510. 

 

How to Use a Gas Oven

Gas Oven

Did you know that the first gas oven was developed as early as 1826? They became a commercial success in the 1880's and went on to become one of the most popular household appliances worldwide. Gas ovens also remain the cooker of choice for chefs and big restaurants as they heat up quicker and provide better temperature control. 

Nowadays, gas ovens are still widely popular in households, but the introduction of electric ovens may have left a few people wondering how exactly you use a gas oven? As both ovens work in an entirely different manner, gas ovens may seem a little daunting at first. But we're here to sort that problem out for you. Read on to find out how to use a gas oven.

Note: This is just a general guideline. Depending on the model, you may have to use your cooker in a different way. Try to read the manual first.

  •   Light the oven using the pilot light or electrode 

To start with, the first step in using a gas oven is to light it. If you're using an old gas oven, you can do this by locating the pilot light which should be found at the bottom of the cooker. It looks like a small piece of metal located in the center. You can then light it using a match or a lighter. When the flame is blue, you can then use the oven. 

If you are using a newer gas oven model, the oven will typically come with an electrode or spark generator. These systems have replaced the older pilot lights and generate a spark when the spark generator switch is pressed. The spark will light the gas flow and will remain lit until the oven is switched off. If you're unsure what a spark generator is, you can take a look at our replacement spark generators here. 

  •    Heat up the gas oven hob using the burner control knob

If you're wondering how to use a gas oven hob rather than the oven cavity, you can do this by pressing the burner control knob and switching it to the light position. Be sure to place the pan on the hob first and then light the flame. If it does not light the first time you can try again, making sure to turn the control knob to the off position first. If it still doesn't light, you can use a lighter to ignite the gas as it is flowing. 

The flame will be quite large at first, so try turning the control knob towards the 'off' position - but not all the way as this will diminish the flame. You can now adjust the flame to suit the temperature you need. The larger the flame, the hotter it is! 

  •   Use a baking tray or casserole dish when cooking in a gas oven

As gas ovens heat up very quickly, it is advised to use some form of protection to avoid burning the bottom of your food. If you are using a convection gas oven, this should not be a problem as the fans will help evenly distribute the heat. Standard gas ovens, however, may cause burning or uneven cooking - so prevent this by placing all food on a baking tray or casserole dish before cooking. 

  • Turn off the flames when you're finished cooking

Finally, be sure to turn off all flames when you're finished cooking. Gas ovens require close attention when doing this as a control knob left slightly on may cause a gas leakage. This can be incredibly dangerous, so take extra precaution to turn a gas oven off properly when done using it. 

We hope this guide has helped teach you how to use a gas oven. If you've tried all these steps and your gas oven is still not working properly, you could need a replacement part!
