Gas ovens come in two variations, featuring a thermostat for temperature control and an igniter to start the flame. The ignition process varies, either through a ticking noise for a direct current spark or a quiet ceramic igniter glowing yellow to ignite gas on contact.
Safety Perspective: Gas vs. Electric Ovens
Contrary to common beliefs, gas ovens are not inherently more dangerous. Electrical issues in improper installations pose a higher fire risk for electric ovens. Gas appliances often have safety checks, preventing gas entry if certain components, like the igniter, fail to meet required currents.
Longevity and Repairability of Gas Ovens
Gas ovens, with minimal components, remain repairable even after decades. Common parts like gas safety valves and thermostats are readily available. The most common failure, failure to ignite, often indicates an issue with the ceramic igniter or electronic spark technology. Repairing a ceramic igniter is generally more cost-effective than other oven types.
