Power fluctuations and surges in Ovens

Oven Repairs

The constant load-shedding we are experiencing here in Port Elizabeth is having a havoc effect on all domestic appliances. 
Above picture show  the results of a power surge

As a rule the electronic control module is the first to go on the blink with our constant power fluctuation but in this case it was the selector-switch.

Oven Selector switch 

 The function of the oven selector switch is to allow the Baker a opportunity to select which style he is going to perform his magic.

Most oven selector switches have at least 3 settings 
Bake setting which is used to bake cakes 

* Grill setting used to grill meat or to give your pastry that crunchy finish. 

Bake and Grill setting is mainly used to speed up the heat process of the oven for baking. Once the oven has reached the desired temperature the baker would turn the selector back to baking only. 

In another post I will tell you more about the bigger selector switches which has more function controls for the thermo-fan and thermo-element.

Should you need more info about selector switches feel free to send me a email 

Have fun with your oven creation.
