With a small screw driver and a steady hand. Set the knob to the temp u want then pull knob off. Inside the stem there is a little screw. Try and regulate it slowly also allow it enough time to reach the desired temp. Good luck.

I appreciate your post, Ronald!

From the information you have provided you would like to calibrate the oven temperature on your Frigidaire range. I was unable to locate any instructions on how to perform a calibration on your oven. I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper calibration of your range. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

We have a 2-year old Viking gas range (model VGCC5304BCC) and lately the oven temperature has beeen running about 25-40 degrees higher than the selected temperature. I cannot find a way to calibrate or...


use a digital thermometer with a probe inside the cavity, normal preheat is 30 mins to 350, wait until the 3rd cycle to see what temps are in the cycle, record high , low temps add and divide. plus or minus 10 are in scope. ex 350 on at 340 off at 360 will avg 350. depending on the serial and age, there is no calibration unless your Electronic thermostat would be suspect. Hope this helps.

Calibrate oven


i couldn't find your model on the sears site,every viking stove i've worked on had two ignitors,if one of the ignitors isn't working correctly could cause heat changes in the oven.if you pull out the racks,then remove the side rack holders,lift up the floor so you can see the ignitors,start the oven,as soon as the ignitors start to glow time them,if they don't ignite the flame within 40 seconds the ignitor is bad.if this is the problem you don't have to calibrate the oven.also if the ignitor or both are bad check the burner tube to see if there's a hole in it.my friend john had trouble with his oven,i went over,had to change out both ignitors and both burner tubes,the ignitors weren't working correctly and burnt a hole through the tube.so check the ignitors first,if you want to calibrate it look at your manual and it should tell you how to do it,or oull off the thermostat knob,look on the back there might be screws there to calibrate it or if there's a hole in the shaft in the shaft that you pulled the knob off of you might need a small screw driver to stick in there,turn it slowly and not to much to the right to increase the temp.hope this helps but start with the ignitors,they are usually the problem.

Oven needs to be calibrated....it heats approximately 100 degrees below where it should


Not familiar with the brand of course but if your model has an Eaton oven control like this one for Viking Page 23 their is an adjustment screw for calibrating the oven temps. Other controls use an adjustment inside the shaft of the oven control itself.

Go to partstown.com and look up the service manual and calibration steps for your stove.

Viking Thermostat bad - Feels like Little House on Prairie


It does not sound like the guy is trying to rip you off. Most mechanical thermostats are adjustable by a center screw in the oven control knob stem behind the knob. The problem is when an oven is off by more than 30 degrees they become almost impossible to calibrate correctly and it is better to replace it. There would not be any danger in just using the thermometers and just living with the problem. It would be a very expensive fix for a Viking and if you can live with it then you are better off. The parts alone will probably be over $300 and then there is the labor charges. The thermostat assembly also includes the tempature probes so it requires major range dis-assembly to replace it. Sometimes the oven control knob will have an adjustment screw on the knob istelf(back of knob) to adjust the position of the dial ring to match the correct oven tempature. This can allow you to change the position of the knob to match the actual tempature of the oven. They usually will only go 30 degrees one way or the other though. So my advice is that if you can live with it and are able to still cook properly then put off fixing it. If you find that over time the cooking tempatures start increasing then you might have no choice but to have the thermostat assembly replaced.

It takes too long for the oven to reach the desired temperature.


Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • 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.

My viking oven won't heat up even at 450. it registers 250 on an oven thermometer


Take the oven knob of and in side the shaft of the thermostat there is the adjustment screw for the calibration. first set the oven at 250 degrees and check in 20 minutes without opening the oven door,now check the thermometer. if it's lower turn the screw just lest then a quarter of an inch, the same way the oven knob goes from low to high, holding the shaft of the thermostat so that it will not move.

Calibration


Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.
