How long have you had the van ?

 

Was  it getting up to temp previously ?

 

Temperature in a van oven can't be compared with a house oven, I presume you are relying on the knob setting to get an idea what the temp may be, the ideal way is to get one of those in oven thermometers you can hang or stand on a shelf to get an accurate reading, one thing to bear in mind with van ovens, is that after opening the door, to say turn something round, it takes far longer to come back up to temperature than a conventional oven so on a like for like basis it can take a lot longer to cook the same dish in the  van.

 

When you say " The gas burner as been changed and now thermostat and repair man no saying we need a new cooker as it is still the same ." .............I would question the competence of a ' repair man ' who says a four year old cooker needs replacing without giving the exact reason why.

 

I would suspect it has had little use in the static even if you lived in it full time.

 

Maybe time to get a second opinion ?

 

There is one other, but rare thing that can cause an inefficient flame which is a partially blocked jet in the burner , the blockage is caused by what are known as ' heavies ' in the propane gas which can form a waxy substance that can block jet an partially block pipework.

Hi 

we have had the caravan from brand new in September 2017 and we don’t let it out so only gets used once or twice a month for about a week . It’s the second time it as done this we bought it brand new in September 2017 and closed it down end of October for the winter season then opened it back up in April and it worked then in may it did the same again the oven lights and then the flame stays low takes 35 minutes to warm a pre cooked Yorkshire pudding up which should take 6 mins but was fixed by abi under warranty and now the same thing as happened again . The gas fitter the site used as changed gas burner and thermostat and neither have solved the problem and now fitter is saying we must have a faulty cooker and need to think about replacing. It’s just odd that the same thing as now happened twice at the similar time of year

I'm having the same trouble. Did you get this problem sorted?
