Oven Maintenance Tips
When thinking about kitchen maintenance or cleaning, rarely does the stove and oven come to mind. But they can tend to be one of the dirtiest places in the kitchen aside from the area around the garbage. It doesn’t matter if you are a skilled chef or just want your pizza late at night. Following these simple rules can help keep your oven in check and working properly.
- Clean your oven regularly: By using the oven either every day or very often, food can get leftover that either spills out or came from an overflow. It is best to clean your oven at least twice a year or more if you use it every day. Both the interior and the exterior of the oven should be cleaned. Any food or other build-up that is left has a chance to catch fire or lead to smoke that can cause damage to the stove and oven.
- Use the oven’s self-cleaning feature: When using the self-cleaning, you must follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Typically, taking out the racks while the oven cleans is best. You can wash the racks however you like as long as hot soapy water is used. Opening a window will help with the heat coming from the oven, and be sure to stay home during this process to make sure it is working properly. After the cycle is done, let it cool for six hours and then you can wipe it down. Avoid using any detergents or soaps on the interior of the over, regardless if it says self-cleaning or not. Use the cleaners that are approved by the manufacturer.
- Don’t clean under knobs: When pots from the stove boil over, they may leak under the knobs that turn the burners on. While it may look tempting to pull them off and spray cleaner on the stuck food, you are soaking an electrical system and ignitor for the burners. One small drip into the socket and you could be electrocuted. It is best to clean around them the best that you can without taking them off. If you must take them off, pull them off and use a sponge that is damp to take off the food without getting anything in the socket hole.
- Replacing the Gas: Appliances get old, which means pipes do too. When you get a new oven, the gas line should be replaced with it. Moving and swapping ovens causes a lot of movement on the line closures which can result in leaks in the line. It’s a small expense but increases your safety.
- Unplug the Oven When Cleaning with Water: Sometimes the self-clean cycle is not enough to get off tough burnt-on food. To avoid electrocution and other damage, unplug the oven. The best cleaning solution for cleaning is a baking soda and water mixture, sprayed all over the oven. Let it sit until it turns to almost a pale film, then wipe the oven down with dish soap; this allows you to cut through the grease. Then go over everything with water and vinegar to kill any remaining germs, this will also make your oven shiny and new again.
- Create a spill barrier: It’s not uncommon for food to boil over on the floor of your oven. The faster that these messes are cleaned up, the easier it will be rather than let them burn onto the oven flooring. You can use a small cookie sheet covered with tin foil, just be sure to not cover the vents.
When cleaning your oven, you’ll realize that keeping up on your maintenance will be easier while the oven is clean to notice any problems. A routine check of come components such as the light bulb will help prolong the span of your oven. But with any at-home repair, make sure you are taking the right precautions to ensure your safety. Remember to unplug the oven before working on it and consult the owner’s manual before attempting any repairs. If it seems too hard or complicated, contact us to help.
- Replacing the Light Bulb: Although the light bulb has nothing to do with the heating element of the oven, it is important to see the food that you are cooking inside. If there is a panel or cover over the bulb, simply remove it. Remove the only bulb and replace a new one. Most appliances call for a 40-watt but be sure to verify with the manual. These can be found at any hardware store.
- Replacing a Bad Element: While everything may visually look like nothing is broken, an electric element could go unnoticed. They can be removed and replaced with a working burner. Be careful not to bend the prongs on the new element as this can cause a shortage. If the socket looks burnt, then it will need to be replaced as well. There should be a screw that keeps the socket attached, simply unscrew and attach the new socket.
Being Quick: No matter, if there is food that boiled over on the stove or overflowed to the floor of the oven, cleaning up as quickly as possible, can prevent damage to your appliances and for your overall safety. Regular and thorough cleaning will reduce the amount or repairs or replacements. If you run into any problems or issues that you are not sure of, Contact us today!
