How to adjust oven controll to the right temp.


You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to
become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20-40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained
in memory after a power failure.
Adjust the oven thermostat-Do it yourself!
To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the BAKEand BROIL HI/LOpads
at the same time for 2 seconds until
the display shows SF.
Touch the BAKEpad. A two digit
number shows in the display.
The oven temperature can be adjusted
up to (+) 35°F hotter or (-) 35°F
cooler. Touch the + pad to increase the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
Touch the - pad to decrease the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
When you have made the adjustment,
touch the START/ON pad to go back to
the time of day display. Use your oven
as you would normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling
or self-cleaning temperatures. It will be retained
in memory after a power failure

Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite high...it keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.

Oven runs much hotter than set temperature. Usually 50 degrees hotter than what it is set at, but can go over 100 degrees higher.


Sounds like you need a new oven thermostat or get an oven thermometer and by experimentation draw up a new heating range for the oven dial.

Fan oven is getting much hotter than what the thermostat indicates. Is it the thermostat or the switch


The thermostat controls the oven temp, therefore it is logical to assume that the thermostat is not sensing the temperature properly, so I would fit a new one.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Oven burns things, very hot on bottom


The temp indicator light goes on and off according to the temp selected.
The sensor referred to is part and parcel of the the thermostat, or temp selector
the fact the light goes on and off, shows that the thermostatt is working, but neccesserily at the correct temp.I maintain that the thermostat that controls the temp is faulty, and needs to be replaced.

OVEN TEMP. VERRIES 40*


The problem is probably caused by the oven thermostat that has gone out of range.
If it is out 40 degrees where ever you set it, then you can compensate by setting it 40 degrees lower, or alternatively, replace the thermostat.
Trust this helps you.

New replacement thermostat needs calibrating on my Kenmore oven


There is no real way to calibrate the thermostat. Most ovens have the same problem. By lowering the setting slightly will help get a closer temperature. Sometimes similar thermostats are substituted and may not be exactly the same as the original that came with your oven. Hope my trying to answer your question was helpful, Thanks, Sea breeze
