If your oven doesn’t heat up to the desired temperature even after you have cleaned it properly, a faulty door gasket could be causing the problem. A faulty door gasket could also cause uneven temperature in your oven. Here’s how to solve the problem:
- If you can feel heat escaping from the door of your oven, then you have a faulty gasket that needs replacing. If this isn’t the case, something else might be causing the problem.
- This guide is designed for ovens with gaskets mounted directly on the door frame. If your oven is a double oven or otherwise has a different gasket installation, we recommend seeking out a technician.
- Pull out the old gasket. If there are screws holding the gasket in place, remove them first. To remove the screws, you may have to bend back one end of the gasket that’s exposed.
- Use a mild solution of water and household detergent. Clean the channel, then the door frame thoroughly.
- Install the new gasket. You can start at the top part of the door frame then continue at the sides. Work your way by easing the gasket around the corners, saving the bottom for last.
- When you reach the bottom, firmly push the ends of the gasket together
