  • My Pregnant Oven

    I decided to take a stab at the pregnant oven. It turned out great and I will be trying it out tonight. This extended my working oven area to 24" x 45" for less than $50 including the element relocation.

      Another with Door to check temps. I used 1 1/2" Mineral Wool Insulation covered with Aluminim Foil. Applied Drywall cornerbead to all joining edges. Foil Tape on all seams. The next step is to relocate the broil element to the inside surface of the door and rewire it to there using flex conduit from the back around the side and into the side of the door. What do you think?

              i fully agree the old saying that "necessity is the mother of invention" is alive and well.

                            bro that is one of the sweetest "additions" to an oven that i have seen yet. my question is do you have both elements wired to the same circuit(both on bake cycle instead of one on bake and one on broil)?

                              I switched the wires to allow the back unit to run on the broil side of the switch. I then took the switch apart and modified the plastic part of the switch that makes and breaks the contacts so that on bake I have both elements working. I did not take pics of the switch mod but now that I know it works I will take the switch back out and snap a few shots to post.

                              I have tried it out now the tape on the extension did not seem to be affected by the heat. No smoking and the oven came up to 400f in 10 min and that is with about a 1" gap at the top where the extension meets the oven face. I am going to add two legs to the back of the extension to keep it tight against the oven face.

                              Thanks for the complements pickleboy. My mind gets too busy sometimes but honestly most of the mods come from something someone has done here or suggested I just done it my way. I have a larger oven in the works it will be
                              7'Dx4'Wx6'H. I will post pics when I get the booth here at the house and start to modify it.
