Fisher and Paykel Oven Troubleshooting


I want your input on Fisher and Paykel oven
troubleshooting. If the glass cracks, it may be because you
used abrasive glass cleaners that scratched the glass, which allows it to craze and break
when it gets hotter. I’m more concerned about the self-cleaning
cycle breaking things and making the paint come off. The manufacturer’s manuals say not to put
aluminum foil on the floor, since this will damage the enamel. I’d rather just put the food in a pan with
foil than line the whole oven with foil that then has to come out. Self-cleaning can get it so hot that the control
panel could fail, though in a Fisher Paykel oven, it is likely to do so anyway independent
of the temperature. I have had the control panel beeping erratically
at me. Their ovens have the auto light flash and
beep when the automatic cooking is finished. If the issue was simply to let me know when
it was done cooking, I would not think there was anything wrong. The auto light flashes and beeps if the automatic
cooking controls are set incorrectly, like if the cook time is set before the time of
day. I do not use automatic cooking very much. If the unit has a fat filter and the food
comes out greasy or the unit gets dirtier than you’d expect afterward, it is because
you aren’t removing the fat filter before baking like you should. And it does have to
be replaced periodically. My model of oven does not have a fat filter. Then we know that the fat filter not getting
cleaned did not lead to grease build up killing the fan faster than normal or giving cookies
a bacon like taste. I do not know if the latter would actually
be a minus in my household. If you use the auto-off feature with their
ovens, keep in mind that the clock has to have the right time in order for the feature
to work right. I turn on the oven and egg timer to determine
cook time. If the side catalytic panels in the oven are
shiny, they aren’t going to self-clean properly. You can wash them with warm water and let
them dry and flip them over so they self-clean better. My oven does not have the side catalytic panels.
I got the Fisher Paykel oven without any of the fancy features specifically because I
wanted a cheap appliance to cook, which it doesn’t always do. The ovens with an analogue timer need to be
taken out of manual mode to work. If it has an electronic clock, the clock has to be set. It’s about time someone explained that to
me.
