Expert Ideas for a Healthier Home

Ovens are sturdy, rugged pieces of home appliances designed to withstand a significant amount of mechanical and thermal duress. Like any household appliance however, it requires maintenance and upkeep. There are many parts to an oven – electrical, thermal, and mechanical, and you will be well served to keep the following tips in mind while cleaning up your oven for the holiday season of baking, roasting, and cooking spree. This will definitely prevent unnecessary oven repair services.

⦁ Cleaning with water – For all the self-cleaning features and automatic cleaning chemicals, there’s no substitute for a periodic rub-down with water. It’s important to remember here to unplug your oven completely from any electrical supply and move it slightly away from the outlet if possible. Mix a bit of baking soda and vinegar and let it froth in. Then use some cleaning soap and water with a soft linen cloth and cut through the residue and grease.

⦁ Keep water out of knobs and coils – Old fashioned and effective, the method has a caveat. Keep the water away from knobs and coils. That’s like essentially dousing an electrical unit, which could cause shorting malfunction or dangerous electrical fires. If you inevitably cause a short circuit, you will have no choice but to engage oven repair singapore to fix your oven.

⦁ Replacing your gas or electric lines when purchasing a new oven is another way to maintain your oven. New oven installation involves plenty of vibrations, mechanical stress, and could potentially damage the old gas or electrical lines. Getting a fresh line is a small investment, but could save bigger problems in the long run.

⦁ Spill barrier – It’s common knowledge that the longer you let spills and food crumbs sit in the oven, the more they’d burn and eventually become a stubborn mark. The best way is to put a small cookie sheet lined with a tin foil to catch the spillage from casseroles and other stuff you cook. Beware of using the aluminum foils – being good reflectors they could reflect too much/ too little heat and either overcook or undercook your food

⦁ Keep clear of the vents– Too often, the spill barriers, or worn gasket linings on oven doors could block the vents, creating dangerous air pressure, risks of carbon monoxide emission owing to incomplete burning, and other hazards. We recommend always being mindful of keeping the oven ventilation intact.

⦁ Overheat checks – Watch out for visual cues for overheating. If a coil is redder than others for same heating levels, it’s likely to short circuit. You will have little option but engage an oven repair service. If your oven door is accumulating moisture (oven door ‘sweating’), your oven door seal isn’t trapping the heat well, leading to an overworked oven. If you let the self-cleaning run for too long, the extremely high temperatures (700-800F) could melt the coils or damage the oven.
As with most household appliances, keep an eye out, clean up after use, and watching your oven from time to time will prevent you from needing another oven repair service.
