Tip & How-To about Ovens

Save time and money on Cooker Cleaning

After cleaning your oven - do you want to ever do that again ?

Well, to cut oven cleaning down to a few minutes, just mix Sodium Bicarbonate (Bicarb) with a little water to make a thick paste, then spread it evenly on the base of the oven just using rubber gloves - it doesn't need to be too precise.
Put the oven on warm for a few minutes just to dry it out.

That's it !

Leaving it on the base of the oven prevents any dribbles or spills from sticking, and it doesn't leave any odours or harsh chemicals in there.

Next time you clean the oven - just use warm water and you will be amazed how it just lifts off - leaving your oven clean with no other chemicals needed.
Add another batch when you're done and it will continue to lift any areas you thought were impossible to get off.

oven door will not open after self clean


There are two easy things to try to fix this.

First, unplug the oven, or turn off the circuit breaker to it - so long as power is cut to the oven. Leave it for about 5 minutes, then plug it back in or turn the circuit breaker back on and try to open the door.

If that doesn't work, turn on the self-cleaning cycle again, and let it run for about 15 minutes. Then turn it off and wait another 15 minutes, and see if the door will open.

If neither of those work, you have a more serious problem with the locking mechanism. Either a bad solenoid or a damaged heat locking mechanism. Both of these will require removing the stove top to access and repair. Let me know if the above suggestions fix the problem. If they don't, I will get you more specifics on repairing the locking mechanism - assuming you're up for that.

Cleaning oven got a warning beep and an F1 indicator in light panel


F1 error code normally means the oven temperature has exceeded the safe limit for the oven and the beep is to warn you to switch off until it has cooled down.

Normally this is caused by failure of the oven temperature control sensor which then fails to cut off the power to the heating element as it should.

Sometimes it is just a 'glitch' wich can be solved by turning off the power to the oven for a few minutes and then turning back on but if the problem persists you will need to replace the sensor.
