Sounds like you have a water leak! The right side panel needs to come off. Here you will see your copper water lines. Try steaming while watching to see where the water is coming from, most likely its coming from the two spray nozzles that enter the oven near the top in the front and rear. If the leak isn't obvious have an authorized technician service the oven. A leak in this part of the oven left unattended could cause more damage and potentially a fire.

Oven doesn't give steam but it does reach the temp.how can i fix that?


First locate the water solenoid valve. Disconnect the water line to the inlet side of the valve to make sure water is getting to the valve. Once that's verified, disconnect the outlet side of the valve. Activate the steam and verify that the valve opens and there's a good amount of water coming out of the valve. If no water comes out. Verify that the coil is getting energized with the correct voltage. If the correct voltage is present and you have no water coming out. Replace the solenoid. If everything is working then remove the left panel inside the oven to check for blockage in the steam manifold. The manifold consists of a pipe with several spray nozzles that spray water on rebar. Remove all the nozzles and activate the steam. Do this several times to purge any rust or debri. Clean the nozzles and replace them. You should be good to go.

Where is the reset button


All the breakers on an electric OV300 would be accessible from the small access panel on the front lower right side of the oven, there should be a sticker on the door that says something along the lines of "circuit breaker here." If those breakers are all in the up position than it is most likely the breakers in your circuit panel.

How do I fix the flame sensor in a baxter oven?


Take off the right side panel and open the control panel door. Take a long screw driver and stick it in the hole where the flame sensor wire goes and remove the screw holding the flame sensor in place. Clean the metal rod on the flame sensor with a piece of fine grit sandpaper or emory cloth. Put flame sensor back in, make sure no insulation is touching the exposed metal part of the wire connector.

The cooking is not even when cooking small items


Often times this isn't something you want to attempt to rectify yourself. If you can find a way to deal with or adjust to this issue it will save you the cost of a repair visit. If the uneven bake is so severe that you cannot cook in the oven and you still wish to attempt repair by yourself you first need to identify which racks aren't cooking correctly and in which pattern is it uneven.

For example is the rack uneven in overall color from top to bottom, meaning are items on the top cooking to quickly where as the items on the bottom are uncooked? Or is the uneveness lateral where the center of a single tray is over/under cooking or the edges of a tray are over/under cooking.
Once you've identified your issues you need to locate your airflow louvers. They are usually located in the back right corner of this oven, it is where the hot air comes out of the heat exchanger chamber. You will notice there are gaps and there are fins. Adjusting the fins changes the way the air flows from side to side across your product, adjusting the gap changes how much hot air reaches the product.

Lets approach side to side uneveness first. To compensate for the center of a tray UNDER cooking take the metal fin lined up with that tray on the RIGHT side and slightly bend it to the left, directing air towards the center of the tray. If the center is over cooking bend it to the right, directing air away from the center of the tray.
For top to bottom uneveness you will need to loose the screws/bolts holding the fins in place and gently increase or decrease the gaps. Be careful here because if you loosen the screws too much the louver can slide out of place and make to large of a gap, potentially making things much worse. A good trick is to take a permanent marker and make a mark to where the louver was before you adjust it incase you need to put it back.

If a single tray is too light in relation to the other trays increase the gap, if it is too dark, decrease the gap. Do this for each tray that is coming out uneven. Make small adjustments and then do a bake to check the results, there may be a lot of trial and error involved.
If this seems overwhelming you're probably better off not attempting this because you can make things worse to the point where NOTHING comes out correctly, if that's the case call your local authorized service provider. Good luck!

The rack inside has stopped rotating


On top of the oven is a cover with 6 screws in it, loosen the screws and remove the cover. You will see two pulleys, most likely one of the pulleys are loose, try tightening the set screws, the one on the right can be tricky because the set screw is under the pulley. Good luck!

When #9 program for Bagels is running , the temp drops 130 degrees before cycle is complete. also having to reset breaker several times


It's normal for the oven to drop temperature during the first 4 minutes of a bagel cycle, although the temperature should recover to 525 before the end of the bake. If your breaker keeps tripping you could have a blown heating element and should call your local authorized service provider, I wouldn't recommend attempting to repair this one on your own.

My baxter rotating tray oven is not baking cookies evenly. The cookies on the outside of the cookie sheet are over-done and the cookies in the middle of the cookie sheet are not done ??


Inside your oven you have an array of louvers or fins in the back left corner and the front right corner. Sometimes a tray will jam and knock one of the louvers out of adjustment. You may need to call a local authorized service provider to come and reset your louvers to the factory settings. In the meantime you can attempt to make small adjustments to see if you can rectify the issue.

Do not ever adjust the louvers in the back left corner of the oven.
For the trays in question, to direct more air towards the center of the cookie sheet slightly bend the louvers in the front right backwards towards the rear of the oven. ONLY MAKE SLIGHT ADJUSTMENTS!! If you bend the louvers too far you will end up burning the center of the cookie sheet and under cooking the edges.

Why bagels bake with no hole


If your bagels are turning into hockey pucks then most likely the steam isn't functioning on your oven. Make sure the water is turned on to the oven. If you still are getting no steam call an authorized service provider.

When we turn the switch on, the light inside the oven goes on, but the touch pad does not come on, it comes on by itself after a while, or will shut off in the middle of cooking.


Control board defective. Before replacing the control board make sure that your incoming water pressure is no higher than 20 psi and that your door gaskets and fan seal is intact. Torn gaskets or a worn fan seal will allow steam to enter the burner compartment and damage your control board.
