Commercial Pizza Oven Repairs in London

Commercial pizza ovens are the cornerstone of any pizza shop. No matter how big or small your pizza shop is, your oven is the only machine that shuts down your whole operation once it breaks. And the last thing any pizza shop owner wants is to shut down during a work day because of a malfunction.

Not only will that disappoint your loyal regular customers, but it can also look unprofessional and affect your shop’s reputation in the eyes of potential customers.

However, before the point of complete breakdown, your pizza oven could be showing signs of a potential malfunction. And catching an early sign could mean a smaller downtime and less money spent.

On the other hand, if you want to avoid a breakdown situation altogether, you should always schedule periodic inspections for your equipment.

The Pizza Is Not Evenly Cooked

Something isn’t right if you find your pizzas fully cooked on one side and still raw on another. Uneven cooking can mean that your temperature sensors are broken, so the heat isn’t transferring equally to all corners of the oven. It could also mean faulty heating elements.

The Oven Doesn’t Turn On

If you’re using an electric oven that doesn’t turn on after you’ve made sure it was plugged in, this could be due to multiple malfunctions.

For starters, you could have a faulty thermal fuse, which is an easy fix. You could also have a broken control unit.

The Oven Is Under-Heating

If your oven isn’t heating up properly, you likely have a faulty thermostat in an electric oven. Alternatively, one of your burners can be clogged or malfunctioning if you use a gas oven.

Signs Your Commercial Pizza Oven Needs Repair

Preventative Maintenance for Commercial Pizza Ovens in London

Recalibrate Your Oven’s Thermostat

With frequent use, the oven’s thermostat can be thrown off balance. Check your owner’s manual to learn the steps to recalibrate your thermostat every three months.

Periodically Inspect Your Oven Doors

If your commercial pizza oven has doors, you should make sure the seals are not damaged or cracked. Ignoring a faulty seal will lead to heat constantly escaping, which will over-work your heating elements to keep up with the desired temperature.

You should also close your oven door gently to extend your seal’s lifetime.

Degrease Your Oven’s Exhaust Fan

You should periodically remove your exhaust fan and clean it to remove any grease build-up. A greasy exhaust fan can lead to improper ventilation in your oven or restrict airflow completely.

Top Trusted Pizza Oven Maintenance in Essex

As a business owner, you need to know your equipment is reliable, so you can confidently go about your work without the fear of any vital appliance breaking down. The best way to gain this peace of mind is via planned preventative maintenance (PPM).

PPM is essentially the process of regularly servicing vital aspects of your kitchen, such as your commercial pizza oven. We attend your premises a pre-determined number of times per year and fully service agreed on appliances. This ensures most problems are caught early, and you don’t suffer an expensive breakdown later.

It’s also important to remember that regular maintenance is often a proviso of insurance, plus it ensures your business is as safe as possible for customers and staff. You’ll also find that regularly serviced appliances last longer, bringing down the costs of equipment replacement.

Pre-empt and Prevent

Scheduling routine catering equipment maintenance allows you to avoid potential breakdowns by identifying problems when they first arise, dealing with them promptly and efficiently to minimise the threat of bigger issues later down the line.

Compliance and Safety

Maintenance and repair work is necessary to ensure that your kitchen is compliant with the relevant regulatory standards. For one thing, well-maintained equipment means less risk of a fire. Staff safety should be a priority, and this means ensuring your equipment is performing as it should.

Extend the Lifespan of Your Equipment

Appliances and machines that are looked after properly will continue to perform for longer and you’re less likely to encounter breakdowns. Regular maintenance stops deterioration and maximises efficiency. Professional catering equipment maintenance is, therefore, an important way of protecting your investment. And well-maintained equipment also has a better resale value should you want to pass your equipment on at a later date.

Save Money

By dramatically reducing the risk of future breakdown and the disruption and downtime it entails, you save money in the long term. While unanticipated breakdowns can lead to lost revenue and disappointed customers, high-performing equipment is efficient, allows for a smooth operation and consistently delivers a quality service, boosting customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Commercial Pizza Oven Repairs FAQs

If you’re looking for a commercial deck pizza oven, you can never go wrong with a Lincat oven—a brand known for its professional, high-quality ovens. On the other hand, buying one from Blodgett is the best choice if you’re looking for a conveyor or convection oven.
How much you pay depends on your personal needs. For instance, a bigger, more versatile, and hotter oven will cost more than a less capable one. That said, they range from £200 to £2,000 depending on how capable and efficient the oven is.
How long your oven lasts is a direct factor of how much care you provide it. Given that you maintain a good preventative maintenance procedure and schedule periodic inspections, your oven can last up to 25 years.
If you run a smaller pizza restaurant, it’s better to go for a deck pizza oven. It makes sense financially since it’s cheaper and easier to clean and maintain. A larger restaurant with more high-volume orders will need a conveyor oven, which is more expensive but much more efficient.
