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 heating element becomes red hot,but the food doesn't appear to cook in an appropriate time os fashion. Any answers or suggestions


The top of whatever food you're cooking should be in the center of the oven for the most effective cooking. Do you have the oven set on bake or broil? Broil is a direct heat method and if the food is on the lower shelf and the oven is set on broil, the food is not getting enough heat to cook it properly. Baking heats the lower element and the heat rises to surround the food. Broiling heats the top element and since heat rises, it is not getting down to the food to surround it and cook it.

Resetting the clock


Hello,

You can set the timer on a single oven slow cooker to automatically switch to a warming setting when you estimate foods will finish cooking.The programmable features allow you to leave food stewing at home while you are out of the house, freeing up your day. Set the timer on a Corningware slow cooker to let the kitchen appliance do all the work, and come home to a fully cooked meal.

INSTRUCTION BELOW.

  • Fill the insert of the single oven slow cooker with food and cover it with the lid. At least a quarter of the insert should be filled with liquid to keep the environment moist during long cooking times.
  • 2 Press the "On/Off" button on the left side of the electronic control panel in the front of the appliance. This will turn on the slow cooker to the low heat "Warm" setting.
  • 3 Press the "Cook Time" button on the right side of the electronic control panel to add hours to the timer which will show a total time in hours with a red digital display. Continue to press the button until the display indicates the desired cook time in one-hour increments up to 10 hours. The cooker will automatically adjust the temperature setting based on the amount of time you programmed on the timer. Cooking times of six hours or less automatically start on "High" heat and times of seven hours or more will start on "Low" heat. A small indicator light will come on below the word to tell you the cooking temperature.

  • Please rate this solution after use.

    Re Neff B1451 oven door not sealing against oven body at top


    If you take the hinges off, you can fit some washers between the hinges and the door to make it close it further. Probably not as good as new hinges, but cheaper. 2mm of washers will close a 5mm gap

    My oven is a kenmore gas single, self cleaning oven about 8 years old. the oven will not light. the top of the stove is fine.


    Open the oven door and take the bottom panel off. you will be able to see it the hot surface ignitor starts to glow or not. Now turn the oven on and see if the hot surface gets red hot it not that is the problem. Should be able to get the part at a heating and air parts house or a appliance parts house. let me know what you find out. ken
