Thermal fuse need replacing every few months. Lint doesn't seem to be the problem. Vertical vent pipe (12') open. Doesn't seem to overheat, but it just stops, but the fuse replacement solves the problem...


Try replacing your thermostat. Temperature range should be fairly consistent. If cycling thermostat is out of range, temperatures can fluctuate. Also might check your thermistor and make sure it doesn't have a low reading.

The heating element goes on but the oven does not heat up. A few months ago noticed that it began to heat up very slowly. Now does not heat up.


Hello, dinophyl (early Jurassic protozoa, hey) Do you have a Gas or Electric kitchen range? Very good possibly that the thermostat control in the oven is bad. That little brass bulb in the oven. This controls the internal temperature of the oven. If it an electric range then the the electrical thermostat on the oven knob could also be the culprit also. GB..stewbison

The oven cannot keep a consistent temperature. It is mostly about 100 degrees above the selected temperature. My landlord replaced the stove about a month ago and the problem is worse now than it was...


It sounds to me like the oven thermostat is faulty, as this is what controls the temperature.
If you can , get a thermometer and place it in the oven and check the temp against the seting with the thermometer, if as you say it is 100 degrees above setting , then you need to replace the thermostat.

I can not control the oven temperature. When I turn on the oven the temperature keeps increase the food will burned.


You need to replace the thermostat for the oven. This consists of the switch on the panel and a long capillary tube and a small bulb. Remember to switch off the oven wall switch or the mains if you are attempting the job yourself.

Oven doesn't get to desired temp.


Hello there:
When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Hotpoint oven thermostat replaced again a few months ago now oven working but thermostat bulb not. Can this be replaced and how ? Thanks


Depending on which thermostat you are talking about , the main oven thermostat is complete with with sensing bulb, so is replaced as a complete unit.
The other stats, including over heating stat, and cooling fan stat do not have a sensing bulb, they are a bi-metal device, and can be replaced individually.

Gas self cleaning 30 range. In bake mode does not heat as hot as before, takes longer to bake items.


  • When the item takes far too long to finish, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor.

    On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    Lincoln Impinger 2 Double Conveyor oven temperature unstable


    It looks like a thermostat problem, but if the thermostat had already been replaced, remain to check the valve and the pressure switches.

    When the valve is defective, gas will turn off and not restart, Check and eventually replace the pressure switch , but it can also be a control problem.

    Let see if I can find support and repair in your area.
