If your Ooni Koda 12 is not reaching 932˚F / 500˚C, follow the steps below:

  1. Disconnect your regulator from the gas bottle and leave it for around 5 minutes.

  2. Reconnect the gas regulator and very slowly open the gas tap on your propane tank.

  3. Check that your oven is on a flat surface. Uneven surfaces can affect the flow of oxygen, reducing the flame.

  4. Push in and very slowly turn the gas control dial on your oven anti-clockwise. There will be a slight delay as the gas moves through the hose to the burner, and so it’s very important that this action takes 5 seconds from 12 o'clock to 9 o'clock.

  5. Once your oven has lit, continue to hold in the control knob for at least 5 more seconds. This gives the burner the chance to light fully and encourages the gas to flow.

If your Ooni Koda 12 is still not getting hot enough after performing the steps above, follow the steps below:

  1. Make sure you’re using the correct gas tank. If the tank is too small, your oven may not reach optimal temperatures.

  2. Make sure you’re using the correct regulator. If the regulator is the wrong mBar, it may not be letting through enough gas.

  3. Consider the weather conditions:

    • If it’s very cold outside, you may need to allow a little bit longer for your oven and stone to preheat.

    • If it’s windy outside, this will reduce the strength of the flame. Always avoid firing up in overly windy conditions, or position your oven so that the opening is facing downwind.
