Question about Ovens

1 Answer

My wife feels that she is getting uneven heating, hotter in the right side than the left necessitating turning a cookie sheet to get even results. Are we doing something wrong or can this be expected and compensated for? (This is a Cadco XAF 003.)

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!

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.

HEAT NOT EVEN IT IS HOTTER AT THE RIGHT HAND SIDE SO CAUSE COOKIES ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE TRAY TO BE SO BROWN. CAKE DOES NOT COOK IN THE INSIDE BUT ALREADY BROWN AT THE OUTER LAYER WHEN THE DIPPING...


Sounds like your oven burner is maybe setting at a angle, out of its bracket. You can turn down the oven flame by turning the burner orifice a little bit clockwise until the flame doesn't come up around the spreader plate. Also make sure your not blocking any vents on the bottom of the oven with foil or pans.

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.

Oven hotter at the back


You should always preheat oven to operating temperature before cooking anything.
Do not put too much in oven, leave plenty af space for good air circulation.
Do not place any reflective foil or the like on the bottom of oven or shelves, as this reflects heat, and you will get uneven cooking.
Make sure fan is working efficiently if it is fan assisted.

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.

Whirlpool Wall Oven not working


It is likely the Thermal Cut-Off (TCO) fuse, which for many Whirlpool ovens is located on the back of the unit. Turn the circuit breaker for the oven OFF first. You'll need to remove the trim on the left and right side of the oven (2 screws) and then remove the screws holding the oven in the wall. You can locate it easy enough by looking for the thermal fuse on any of the major appliance part websites. The test is simple enough if you have an Ohm meter, as it will be an open circuit if it is blown. There is only one fuse (normally) so if it is blown neither the bake or broil element will work. There should be a Tech Sheet located behind the control panel which will help, but if you don't feel comfortable doing this call a service tech.

Stove


Electric or gas? Is it clean and not lined with foil? If gas, does the flame all look blue along the burner length? If electric, how many elements are there? Do they all glow in the area where you expect them to when the unit is heating? Where are they? Answering these questions should lead to a solution.
