Oven build nearly complete

Post by dragon2323 » Mon Apr 01, 2019 6:18 pm

With the exception of some more rivets and cosmetics my build is ready for testing. I hung several test pieces to see what kind of readings I'm getting. It looks like its all over the place 380 to 435. maybe need a circulation fan ?
fortunately I made provisions in control panel for one

+1 for fan if you're using elements. Not necessarily needed if you're doing propane since there is a fan already built with it to circulate the heat, but always better to have one than none if you have planned for it. :)

Make sure you use a rheostat so you can control the fan speed. All you need is just a little air movement and that should take care of your problem. You most likely will have to place it in an electrical box mounted to your oven and then just add an off/on switch in your control panel. Once you get the fan speed like you want it then you will never touch it again. A light dimmer is all you really need because most of the motors are low amp ones.

The info for them should be here on the forum in the oven section.
All I have said is said just for meanness so I don't have to argue with anyone!
