Oven will not heat to requested temperature

My oven will not reach the temperature requested, nor will it reach a high enough temperature to self clean. The top element heats, but the invisible bake element does not seem to heat up the bottom. I preheated the oven for 35 minutes and sent the temperature at 375 to get it up to 350 to bake something. The top was baked, but the bottom was uncooked. Any suggestions??? We have looked for fuses, but don't see any (old school probably). The problem seemed to start when my son used the broiler, we're wondering if this could have affected the lower bake element.

    Just replaced the sensor on my Kenmore oven 790.9622. Unfortunately
    this did not solve the problem. Despite setting the oven to, say, 425,
    it only preheats to 350 - almost like it is ignoring my temp setting
    and defaulting to the 350 initial setting.

    the broiler seems to be working alright, it's the baking part that does not come on

Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back

Need manual for self cleaning, please?


Hello Mary;

You can get a user manual at the following website.

Locate your oven model number. It is located on a label either on the face of the oven when you open the door or on the side of the door. Put he model number into the website and you will get diagrams, component part numbers and manuals.

http://www.searspastsdirect.com/

I suspect the user manual is not going to help you. Tell me the model number and what is going on.

Manufacturers offer the self cleaning feature on ovens because customers like this feature and the ovens sell. Yet, the manufacturers engineers have not been able to provide a design that will protect all of the components from self cleaning temperature of 900-1,000 degree F.

When you go into the self cleaning model, the door will lock when you reach 500-550 Degree F. The oven temperature will raise to 900-1,000 degrees F. The oven door will not open until the oven temperature drops to 500 degree F after the self cleaning cycle is completed.

Now, You have a high temperature limit switch in your oven. If this switch fails, you will loose power to your control board and you will not be able to open the oven door.

If you have never used your self cleaning feature, the high temperature limit switch may have failed.

Do to the problems involved with the self cleaning feature, knocking out the control board from heat, additional heating element failure, and other components; It is in my professional recommendation as well as my fellow technicians not to use the self cleaning feature. If you do, do not run it for more than 1 hour instead for the manual 4 hours.

Oven stops working when it reaches requested temperature


Sounds like a temperature sensor and/or the control board are not communicating correctly. You could also have a faulty baking element that will not hold heat. Contact a professional.

Hotpoint SD97PI oven self cleaning funtion and grill not working


The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.

The latch mechanism has failed. If this happened after using the self clean option then it may be possible that the main control was damaged and could be part of the problem. To get the door open I use a coat hanger with one end hooked to reach in and pull the latch back enough to open the door. Chances are that the control board as well as the lock have failed.

Ovev not cleaning that way it should be

Now after that I have to remind you that even though the sensor is removed from the circuit, its still in the oven and more than likely is damaged, along with other parts of the oven, Check to see if the bake and broil work respectively, the broil might have stopped working because of this .The control may have overheated and certain relays aren't making contact anymore. There is a multitude of things but if everything else is working, your lucky and shouldn't concern yourself with the self clean option because it will, I promise that, cause you more harm than good in grand scheme of things.

Whirlpoll gas range.oven door does not unlock after self cleanig oven. how do i get oven to unlock?


The reason your machine is locked shut is because of the self clean. The oven temperature reaches up to a 1000 degrees F in some models, which is beyond the capabilty of the oven cavities design to retain the heat. The heat therefor is transferred upward, alot of times damaging the oven latch assembly, and sometimes even the main control board. In your case the latch assembly is definatly bad, and possibly even the control. To get the door open I use a plain wire coat hanger, keeping one end hooked to reach in and pull the latch far enough over to open the door, you'll need to do this to replace the latch as it is.

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


Hello,

An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


Hope this helpout

It takes 28 minutes for the oven to reach temperature of 375 degrees. The ready buzzer goes off in about 15 minutes. The temperature is 300 degrees. Is there any adjustments to be made.


what is your oven if is gas or electric, if is gas easy to preheat by using lower heating element, if electric? that your unit have convection? or not? coz some probelm of the oven is, 1 if the oven is no convection or your oven is single heating in upper element,if your oven have a timer and cut off in 15minute? dont use timer,use a manual timer by it your self,if you want to reach the degrees that you want check your oven if der a lower and upper heating element with convection function,that the one is the most easy way to reach the degree that you want to reach.

After self cleaning the oven, now the oven won't heat up


Usually this is caused by either a bad temperature sensor, a shorted wiring harness, or commonly a faulty controller. The temperature sensor and wiring can be checked with an ohm meter.

When you program the oven for a high temperature what does the display read after ten minutes or so?

How to use self cleaning oven


  • When using the self-cleaning feature on your oven, the temperature within the oven rises to an extremely high temperature, usually around1000 degrees. The oven will remain at this temperature for a set periodof time, often from 1 to 3 hours.

  • Self-cleaning ovens differ from traditional ovens in that they require a timer to control the amount oftime that the self-cleaning feature operates. They also require extrathermostatic controls to control the extremely high temperatures.

  • While the mechanisms inside aself-cleaning oven are quite complex, the concept behind aself-cleaning oven is fairly straight forward. The extremely hightemperatures incinerate dirt and debris from your oven, thus cleaningit for future use.

  • Safety is very important when using yourself-cleaning feature. You must ensure that the oven door is completelyclosed while the self-cleaning cycle is running. 1000 degreetemperatures are obviously extremely dangerous. Self-cleaning ovenswill come equipped with a secure oven door latch for this reason.

  • The crucial door locking system isinitially engaged to signal that you are ready to use the self-cleaningfeature. When the oven reaches a certain temperature, the door locksystem will ensure that the oven door cannot be opened until the cycleis complete and the temperature has returned to a manageable level.The result is a clean oven without the use of harsh oven cleaners orabrasives.
REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION!!!
