    We've been satisfied with a Sanyo convection oven for four
    months. Now I have to turn the temperature setting to maximum to
    roast chickens and fishes. The filaments tend to glow dimmer than
    usual. Usually it's bright orange, now it's dull orange. I notice the
    decline in performance when a chunk of melted butter soaked the
    lower filament. What can I do to increase the filament glow?

    Thanks
     
  2. Replace it.

    The heating elements, or control module may need to be replaced. If this is
    a counter top type oven that you are talking about, it would be more
    feasible to replace it with a new one.

    Check your warranty.

  6. Describe the controls that it has.

    Is there a temperature control that might have also been soaked
    in melted butter?

    Normally, the filaments (heating coils or heating elements) do not
    fail in a manner that can result in significantly lower temperature.
    They usually die completely.

    The controls aren't soaked. They operate fine. Here's a picture of the
    model I got from Amazon.com. http://tinyurl.com/a5nsx "1350-watt
    digital convection oven quickly cooks, bakes, toasts, and reheats; Full-
    width top and bottom quartz heaters and twin convection inlets for even
    heating; 5 temperature-control settings; adjustable toast-shade control; 40-
    minute timer. "

    Since I also notice that it took longer to cook the same meal, could
    crud may have blocked the convention fans or a heat sensor?
     
  8. Either of those are possibilities though I'd suspect a problem with the
    heat sensor (crud or otherwise) before the fan.
