Our Gas Safe Registered engineers can handle any gas oven repair in your home. Gas Ovens: A Quick Introduction Gas ovens may use different types of gas. Some gases used in ovens are butane, propane, liquified petroleum gas and natural gas. These are used as the fuel source for the oven. The earliest use of a gas cooker and oven was in 1802. All of the food served at a dinner hosted by Zachaeus Winzler were cooked on a gas cooker and the attached oven compartment. More gas cooker inventions came out in the 1820s. In 1826, James Sharp patented his gas stove in England and began selling it to the public in 1834. The oven is usually attached to the cooker. This is called a range. Ranges vary depending on the design and style. There are freestanding ranges, slide in ranges, or you may opt to put a separate cooker on a cooktop and a wall oven.   Common Gas Oven Problems When your oven acts up, you may have a big problem in your hands.
