use the oven unless the insulation is in its proper place in the oven. It is not safe to use without the insulation in place. Fire could result from using the oven without the insulation. Without the insulation, the oven will be very inefficient since it can't keep the heat in itself, so it will require more input to keep it working. Fiberglass is the conventional material of choice for thermal insulation in appliances such as range cookers, ovens, and dual fuel cooking tops, but a shift change in favor of higher performance alternatives is now shaking up what has been, until recently, a relatively steady marketplace. Normally, ovens are manufactured with insulation covering the top, sides and bottom. If there's insulation missing in just one of these areas, it can result in a significant loss of efficiency. Oven insulation also helps to protect against fires. Depending on the make and model, you can replace the oven insulation, ” if the damage is widespread. If you're willing to tackle this, you'll probably have to disconnect the fittings, so it can be complicated, Tim notes.
