Put an oven thermometer in the oven and check it for accuracy. It may be that the oven is simply not obtaining the correct cooking temp.

And if it’s not then what? Our oven doesn’t go over 350 even if it’s set on 500. Or is that just normal?

You may need to replace the thermostat in it if the internal temp is that far off. I put a pizza stone in mine and it did better distributing heat and preventing burning and a more even temp across the oven. Never tried to get it beyond 375 though.

I just ordered a convection microwave oven as a work perk. Tired of dealing with the pilot light. We always have power when camping and if not my smoker is easier to get to temp and more consistent when baking.

OMG....you got me fired up about Furrion.

When we traded our 10 y/o camper that had a basic Magic Chef oven in it for a new 5er with the Furrion with figured it was bigger, more technology and would bake like our home oven. NOT! Biggest POS there is out there. Our temps were way off and the flame would consistently go out. Here is a conversation I had with Furrion about 2 weeks ago regarding temps and the flame going out:

Good morning Philip,

When you are pushing in the ignitor knob, try holding it in for 3 minutes and then set the temp to 400 and preheat for 10 minutes or so. And with an oven thermometer hanging in the oven see what temp you are getting. I will tell you that as far as temp goes, there is a acceptable variance of +/- 10 degrees per 100 degrees you are setting the oven. So for example, at 400 degrees, and temp from 360 - 440 would be acceptable for the oven.

Jason - thanks for the reply. So you’re telling me the solution to the flame going out is to hold the ignitor for 3 minutes? Please tell me you are kidding.

And as for the 10 degrees for every 100 that means at 400 degrees there can be an 80 degree variance (360 to 440).

Please confirm both above.

Thanks

Phil

Philip,

Yes, that is what I am telling you. That is the acceptable temp variance. And holding in the ignitor knob in that long clears the gas line.

Furring oven

Also along with checking the temperature, once the oven lights take a look at the burner and flame color it should have flame along the complete length of the burner and a nice blue flame.

These ovens do take a bit to reach temperature, but after that are fairly decent.

Our Furrion oven in our 2020 Cedar Creek gets within 10 degrees of the set temp and seems to work just fine. Took my DW a little while to get used to it but that's to be expected. Lighting the Furrion stove was more of a game than the oven.

I never trust an oven's thermostat, even in my home kitchen. Although a simple internal oven thermometer works, I prefer something you can monitor externally via a probe thermometer. A simple clip holds the probe right above a rack for the proper orientation.

https://www.amazon.com/LittleGood-Un...7253728&sr=8-5

I also have a multi-probe unit that I use with my smoker so I can monitor the cooking chamber temp as well as the food inside. It has a bluetooth link with my new-fangled telephone device, like almost everything else these days. I gotta admit it works a treat.

Our fifth wheel has a microwave/convection combo and we've never lit the oven...we always use the convection oven and are 100% pleased with it. In all of our previous trailers we either burned or undercooked everything we tried to cook in those tiny "shoebox" ovens, so we are glad we don't even have to depend on that gas oven now.

We have a Furrion

I cook with gas ranges at home. The main kitchen has a 5 burner Samsung duo-flex. The 'summer kitchen' as we call it has an older Fridgidaire 4 burner model. I had a magic chef in our truck camper, which to me, was a PITA to light and didn't hold temp at all.

We ordered the CC34IK and took delivery March 2019. Was excited to use the new oven/range top! I ALWAYS have an oven thermometer in my ovens. I have found that both my home gas range ovens are 'off' by up to 25 degrees.

The Furrion in the 34IK DOES take about 15-20 minutes to pre-heat. NORMAL. My gas ovens at home do the same.

I solved part of the problem with temperature control in the 34IK with a large, AirBake cookie sheet. I didn't want to haul around a pizza stone and the AirBake accomplishes the same thing: Even heat distribution. Just place it on top of the divider, making sure you don't cover the holes on the edges of the divider.

I have not had any issues with burnt bottoms on anything I've baked, from casserole to cornbread. Everything bakes evenly.

The other part of the temperature control is that the oven doesn't run 'true' so DEFINITELY need that oven thermometer. Mine runs an average of 25 degrees hot. But then I deal with that at home too, so that's not an issue for me. I just set mine to 325 if I want 350 and it's usually within 5-10 degrees on the thermometer AFTER preheating is done. Mine DOES heat up to over 400 degrees; the nice blue flame stays lit and cycles up and down as the oven does what it's supposed to do.

The oven has an automatic 'cool down' cycle (kind of like my Traeger grill) when you turn it off after use. It eventually goes off all the way.

So all this being said, I'm assuming my oven is 'functioning as it should'. If your oven is doing something extreme outside of what mine is doing, I'd check with the dealer who can check with Furrion under warranty. I've read that some people get a complete replacement.

Cheers to 2020 and another season of camping!

@Chillaxin - Does your Furrion fan go on and stay on even in the pilot light mode? Mine does....fan never turns off even when in pilot light mode. Don't like it running all the time so I turn it off requiring me to re-light it every time.

I almost bought an oven thermometer as recommended in this thread, then I realized I own a Fluke infrared temperature gun with a range up to 900*F, with specified accuracy better than the typical oven thermometer. I’m going to try the Fluke during the next Furrion baking session.

I bought THIS and put it in the back right corner of the cooktop under the glass top. I snaked the probe through the vent holes and secured it next to the stove's probe. I leave it off until I use the oven.
My oven is about 30 degrees off.

I'm all about external thermometers and do use one in this Furrion and even in my Jenn-Air at home. As a commercial baker for many years, I learned that accurate baking temps are important and even critical for some items (e.g. souffles).

My beef with Furrion is their claim that an 80 degree delta is acceptable. Unless you sit (or stand) at the oven adjusting it non-stop, that window is way too too wide. What they are stating is that if you set the temp at 375, it could go as low as 335 and as high as 415 during a cycle and that acceptable. That is not acceptable.
