The Highlights Summary:
- Possible causes to uneven baking
Whenever you try to cook something in your oven it fails to cook it evenly. Is the dish burnt on one end and undercooked at the other end? Wondering what is the reason behind this?
One of the primary cause can be the oven heating unevenly. Though, a very common problem, it is a warning that there is some issue with your oven that needs to be addressed soon. It is better to know about the possible problems with the oven and rectify the little problems instantly before they get worse.
Beyond such issues, there are situations when you may require an expert, like us, to examine the oven heating problems and save you the unnecessary burdens. Our technicians have the necessary expertise and understanding to fix the issues like the uneven heating of the oven effortlessly.
If you notice the following indications it is suggested to seek help:
• When the oven’s digital alarm or timer crashes
The whole idea of setting an alarm or timer is to ensure the constant heat needed to properly cook some dishes. And when the oven alarm or timer stops working, either by not sounding the alarm or shutting down before a timed cycle completes, the oven heating system ceases to function properly.
• Inspite of following precise cooking directions, dishes cook unevenly
To test if your oven is doing its job right or not, take any food product that comes with package instructions, like canned biscuits. Follow the instructions thoroughly and flawlessly. And even after doing so, the biscuits come out all evenly brown, overcooked or undercooked in some spots, then it’s pretty evident that your oven heating system isn’t working properly.
• The broil and bake elements fail to provide the required amount of heat
This is a very common, yet not easily identifiable symptom. If your food is constantly not cooking, heating or baking properly, it’s because either your oven broil or bake element is not actually heating up every time you turn on and use the oven.
• Heating elements may be damaged
Check to make sure that your upper and lower heating elements aren’t damaged. Look for any possible swelling, blistering or patches. If there is any, contact us and we will assist and fix the issues immediately.
Oven Heating Unevenly: Increase or Decrease Temperature?
To solve the dilemma of deciding whether to turn up or turn down the temperature, the first task to do is to get confirmation that the cause of the oven heating unevenly problem is the appliance itself and not your cooking judgment. Once you have figured that out, take an oven thermometer to clearly understand and verify if there’s any difference between the actual temperature inside the oven and the supposed temperature on the control. And if the result is in the negative, then the problem lies with the thermostat. So make sure that the thermostat sensor tube in the oven is tightly mounted. Also, check to see if a part of a rack or any other piece of metal isn’t touching the sensor tube, which normally creates the problematic gap in temperature.
