Gas Cooker Not Working Properly? Learn How to Fix It
It’s always frustrating when your home appliances fail to work correctly-especially a gas cooker or oven. There are few things worse than removing your meatloaf from the oven and discovering that it has not cooked evenly. With one side over or under cooked and the other side perfect, you may be tempted to pick up the phone and call for a repair man. However, before you spend your hard earned money on that call, try following tips to see if fixing your gas cooker or oven is simpler than it originally seemed.
Step One: Be sure to lay out some paper or tinfoil to keep from making a mess in the bottom your stove. Then, remove the oven door from its hinges so that you can access the upper burner. Normally, it is attached to the top of the oven on the inside. You won’t need much more than a screwdriver to make adjustments to it if you see something out of place.
Step Two: Clean the openings on the burner with warm water and a mild dish detergent. If soap and water doesn’t rid the burner of its buildup, it may be in your best interest to purchase an oven cleaner solution. It is available at most major retail chains.
Step Three: Wrap the up the mess you made on the newspaper in the bottom of your stove and throw it away. Then, remove the bottom panel to access the bottom burner. Clean it using the same method you used to clean the top burner.
After cleaning the burners, the oven of your gas cooker should be heating as evenly as it did when it was new. While you have your hands dirty, it might be a good time to check on the gas burners on top of your stove. It’s very common for them to become covered with gunk from cooking and perform poorly over time. These too can be repaired with four simple steps.
Step One: You will need to turn off the utilities to your gas cooker before you mess with it. The last thing you want is a DIY (do it yourself) injury. When power and gas have been cut off to the stove, lift the top lid on your gas cooker and inspect each burner.
Step Two: Use a needle or pin to scrape and push gunk and buildup out of the holes. Be careful not to damage the burners of your gas cooker when you do this.
Step Three: Try out all the burners, one at a time, to see if they light. If they’re not all lighting after being cleaned, you may need to make a service call.
Step Four: Clean up after yourself. Make sure each burner is nice and clean as you put them back together. After you put the lid down on your stove, restore utilities to your gas cooker.
