Cleaning Gas Burners in Oven After Culinary Disaster on Christmas Day

Postby Mookster » Sun Apr 03, 2016 1:20 pm

Hope someone can give me some advice on this one!

Christmas day culinary catastrophe! A dish of cauli cheese fell off the shelf in the oven and emptied itself all over the gas burners. Cleaned it as best I could but now the oven isn't heating properly.

I cleaned the sensor as well but the flames are quite low and of variable height not uniform as before. It's driving me nuts, took over an hour to re-heat a lasagne last night lol !! The oven isn't achieving a decent temperature, I couldn't cook anything that requires a high heat, I reckon it might be getting as high as mark 4/5.

It's a Creda Expression, model L153G/L if that's any use.

Any advice appreciated, I really can't afford a new cooker at the moment!

Have you checked the heating element? These can be replaced relatively cheaply (compared to buying a new cooker) and could be the cause.

Most manufacturers have a helpline which can talk you through basic diagnosis.
