Bend fins outwards to decrease airflow towards center of oven, bend fins inwards to increase airflow towards center of oven. Open gaps to increase airflow to an entire tray, close gaps to reduce airflow to an entire tray.
Only make small adjustments, trial and error may be required.

    Mike, I have similar problem with baxter model BXA1G. It's about 2yrs old.I checked air flows,it seems to come out even with no load but when I bake 20 sheet pans full of bacons. the result is less cooked in the middle trays. The main blower and burner were inspected. they're work fine compare with another unit.Is draft inducer possible part of the problem if it is run with low rpm? Thanks/Leim S.

  • Leim, there are only two issues that could cause un-even baking.

    1. Temperature calibration is off. Take an oven thermometer and place it on the center tray of a rack, put it in the oven, and start the rotation. Give it about 10 minutes to adjust to the temperature and the thermometer should read about 25 degrees cooler than what the board says the actual temperature is. So if the oven is set to 400 degrees and the actual temp is at 400, the thermometer should be right around 375.

    2. Louvers out of adjustment. When the center of the tray is less cooked than the edges it is usually because a tray got jammed into one of the louvers and bent it. With every oven comes a diagram and an adjustment tool. The left row of louvers should be bent at a 90 degree angle while the louvers on the right side should be at a 97 degree angle. After you verify this if you are still having issues with the center of the tray cooking too lightly try bending the louvers on the right side to the left just a small amount maybe 2 or 3 degrees. This will direct more airflow towards the center of the tray and even out the bake.

    Now with all that said I have to say I wouldn't advise on cooking bacon in these ovens as they are designed for bakery products and don't fare well with grease laden foods. If you must cook bacon make sure that you are having the oven cleaned and scraped out on the inside and having the heat exchanger compartment inspected and cleaned by a certified technician to reduce the risk of grease fires.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

The oven has been heating irregularly, and the food has cooked unevenly.


The fan is likely for convection cooking. And it sounds like you might be used to cooking on convection mode. Try changing it.

How do i fix an oven that bakes unevenly


the cooking I can't help with, but the oven I can.

sounds to me like the bottom element or what controls it is not working. the reason the ones on top are cooking is that the top element is coming on and browning them on top after the heat has made the dow rise and cook.
so essentially everything is cooking from the top down. so when the temp drops its using the top element to heat with and thus browns the top rack.

check ur elements to make sure both work, if so, move on to the thermostat which I have to be the culprit many times.

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!

Heat escaping, uneven baking, longer cooking times


Either the seals need to be replaced, or you may have weak oven door hinges, and the door is not closing properly.
Only solution would be to replace both hinges if this is the case.

Simpson Evolution 904 wall oven cooks very unevenly


I agree, the heating is very uneven in our oven, however, when I calibrated the temperature with a thermocouple, I discovered that the temperature gauge was 25C too hot! That is, if I set the oven temperature gauge to 155C, it was actually 180C inside the oven! Taking this in to account, it is now much easier to cook things without them burning.

Uneven rising & baking in convection oven


I repair commercial cooking equipment for a living. When a customer complains about uneven cooking the #1 thing that these manufacturers ask is..... are they turning (180*) the baking sheets half way thru the cook cycle. #2 are they staggering the pans front to back & side to side. It's kind of a pain but, works for the commercial ones.

Gas oven that cooks unevenly


clean your orifaces.

Also make sure that it's the correct stove for your gas type. If you're using a NG stove on Propane, you're wrong. It's making a lot of soot, and could potentially blow up your house. Stop using it until you're sure.

Oven bakes unevenly and burns food


When foods are burned, soggy, or baked unevenly, it generally means heat isn't being distributed evenly throughout the oven, its escaping out the door or the controls are out of adjustment. 1) Remove any aluminum foil from racks or the bottom of the oven. 2) Check the door gasket and, if necessary, have it replaced. 3) Be sure nothing is obstructing the vent. 4) Reposition the oven racks so baking pans aren't too close to the heat sources. 5) Check your baking pans. If they're dark, they may be burning your food. Reduce temperature by 25 degrees F when baking in dark metal or glass pans. 6) Recalibrate the controls.
