Oven Replacement Parts to Keep on Hand
Is your restaurants oven taking longer and longer to cook meals? Maybe the food you are cooking has began to cook more on one side than the other? It might be time to fix that overlooked oven. In most cases the parts are replaceable and affordable. Knowing which part is defective requires investigating the unit. Here are a few common oven replacement parts:
- Ovens have a unit at the bottom and one at the top. The ceiling unit is for broiling and the bottom element is for baking. Cycle through the knob settings to ensure both devices glow red during a short test. If one or both elements are not hot after 15 minutes replace them.
- Cooling fans reduce the time needed for a hot oven to cool off. If the fan isn’t working check to ensure an electric charge is getting to the device. If the electric is Ok the housing unit is the likely culprit. You might want to call an electrician based on hoe comfortable you are with checking connectivity.
- Depending on the type of oven (gas or electric) various triggers exist to get heat flowing in the heating element. A bad igniter is an igniter that doesn’t glow red or doesn’t maintain an electrical current. Discovering which requires a simple test with a multi-meter.
Latches and Hinges
- Latches won’t open after a ‘self clean’ and hinges squeak when the door opens. If you can turn a screwdriver you can replace either one.
