Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a Philips Whirlpool electric oven. My son left the interior grill on for 10 mins at 200 degrees with door closed. Now at a 200 degrees thermostat setting the oven feels more like 100 degrees and it only seems to heat from top and not also from bottom of the oven. The oven is more than 10 yrs old. Is the thermostat likely to be faulty and need replacing or will more internal damage have been done.

How do I set the oven on100.


I'm guessing that you want your oven at 100 degrees for drying some food/herbs, or culturing homemade yoghurt. I do all of those, so know the temp range required; 95-110. Most ovens can't be set as low as 100, but the cool thing about a gas range is that the pilot light keeps the interior temperature close to that, and if you keep the oven interior light on, that helps. Get an oven thermometer, costs under $10, test oven temp. If your oven doesn't do it you can get a pizza stone or even a few bricks, preheat the oven to warm the stone/bricks on the bottom rack, turn oven off. Then put in your product of choice on top rack. Leave yoghurt in for 8 hours, leafy herbs (sage, thyme, oregano, etc) for 12 or more hours. If doing yoghurt, don't open door, consistent temp is important. If doing herbs, crack the oven door open slightly with a wooden spoon to allow moisture to escape, critical to drying. I hope this helps.

    Fan oven door, cooker surround and hob become burining hot when using fan oven


    Sounds like a problem to me. Check your oven door gasket to make sure it's intact and also that the oven door is closing completely when this overheating occurs. Although some heat will rise, it shouldn't become "burning hot".

    Actually my son fixed it. The button on the face frame when the door is open, isn't just for the interior light. My son held it in and the oven latch slowly moved back to the open position. Thanks anyway
