3 Common Commercial Oven Repair Problems & How To Avoid Them

When you walk into any restaurant or food service operation, there is one appliance that you are guaranteed to see and that is an oven, as 9 out of ten commercial kitchens use one. It is important for managers to keep these appliances in excellent condition, not just for the benefit of the equipment, but also for the satisfaction, safety and health of their clients.

Here are some typical commercial oven repair problems that most managers experience:

  • The pilot light is not staying on – this is usually caused by one of 2 problems, which is either a malfunctioning safety valve or thermocouple. This is definitely a repair issue that you should call a repairman to handle for you, but for safety and to give you peace of mind to know that it is done properly.
  • The Oven is cooking meals unevenly – in most cases this is due to a thermostat that was not installed properly, as it causes the temperature readings to be incorrect, which results in your food not being cooked evenly, which then causes unhappy patrons.
  • The oven is not getting hot enough – this is also a problem related to the thermostat, either it needs to be re-calibrated or you need to install a new one.
