This is usually caused by a weak oven ignitor. As they age, they seem to perform less effectively. Sometimes the oven will take several minutes to ignite the first time, and even worse on subsequent ignition cycles, resulting in overall low oven temp and poor baking. Replace the oven ignitor. Note, if you have a self clean gas oven, the ignitors are usually the same part number for the bake and broil, so you can try moving the broil ignitor (which is generally used much less than the bake ignitor) to the bake burner if you want to test it out before buying a replacement ignitor.

I cooked something for 40min as it said and at the end it was raw, I had to pur it on further 40 min this is a conventional oven


It could be your oven isn't as hot as you set it. Get a thermometer and check it. It could be the "something" you cooked was larger than the recipe was expecting... It's cooking, you have to adjust. It could even be your altitude above sea level. Higher, water boils at a lower temp, things take longer to cook.

I have recently purchased a Neff double oven UI722 and am experienncing difficulty with the heat control. Most things I cook seem to burn either at the sides or bottom or both . Can you help in any way...


It can be difficult to 'acclimatise' to a new oven particularly if it is a fan oven as cooking times are usually shorter.

Temperature distribution is also different so if you are following your normal cooking temp and time you may need to adjust these so as not to overcook.

Try a few set recipes from the hand book using the set times and temperatures to see if that makes any difference.

Good Luck

I think the oven is not getting hot enough,i have baked three


Buy an oven thermometer to check if the temperature you set the oven at is accurate. You may have a faulty thermostat, but if the temp is only off by a little, you can calibrate the temp setting on the oven by as much as + or - 25 degrees. If you have an LCD screen, then most likely you can adjust it right on there. If not, then the backside of the oven knob can be adjusted + or -. by moving a set screw and turning as needed. Your owner's manual will have a more detailed explanation on this procedure. Douglas

Sometimes, a good old fashion 'oven thermometer' work great to find the true oven temp. Then if it's off a few degrees, you can turn it up or down to get the right cooking temp you want.

Baking with digital oven


First let me address the temp ... Buy a meat thermometer and test it against the temp set in the oven.  Though that isn't the most accurate, it should prove whether or not it is way way off.
Second.. convection baking takes considerably less time.... 
Third... elevation plays a key factor on baking but not so much on cooking meat.  Baking above 2500ft elevation takes 20% longer and above.
