- Pilot doesn’t light or won’t stay lit. This is a common problem. Your pilot light is paired with an electronic device known as a thermocouple, a safety feature which controls the flow of gas to your oven. If it does not detect enough heat radiating from the pilot, it shuts off the gas to prevent fuel build-up without ignition. If your safety valve has a thermocouple attached, then the whole valve may be the culprit.
- Oven doesn’t heat up. This is most likely a problem with your thermostat. If you have set your oven to 350 degrees and it only gets to 250, then the thermostat might be defective or in need of repair. Keeping your thermostat calibrated is the only way to ensure that you are cooking food to the desired temperature.
- Oven is too hot. If your oven heats up too much, well beyond the desired temperature, then this also might be a defective thermostat. This can be damaging not only to your cooking, but also to the oven.
- Oven cooks unevenly. If you notice that your oven cooks food unevenly, the thermostat may have been installed incorrectly. It may be incorrectly sensing the oven temperature because it has been moved to a different place.
Remember that working on ovens can be dangerous and requires the expert knowledge and skillset of a trained professional. Your commercial oven is a business investment, and you should expect it to operate efficiently and effectively. For emergency and routine service in the Arlington, VA area, call Air Novations today.
