    The display shows the actual temp inside the oven

  • weissnest Nov 05, 2008

    The actual temp goes higher than the temp that it is set for.

  • weissnest Nov 05, 2008

    My guess is that the temp. will keep going up well above (100+) the set point- I cancel it (turn off the oven) before it gets too hot, The sensor doesn't read above the set point, but if I cancel and set at a much higher temp, I can see that the temp. is at least at the much higher set point without any additional time to heat up.

More than likely if it isnt shutting off when it reaches temp. then it probably needs a temp sensor or a EOC (electronic oven control). I have replaced many of these boards in the past , usually there is a relay on the board that is stuck. The relay really isn't replaceable and the whole board needs to be replaced. Does the dispay show the temp that the oven acually is or the temp it is set for?

    is the actual temp that it is showing higher than the temp you set it for?

  • Steven Haney Nov 05, 2008

    If you are inclined to do so you could check to see if the element is still getting voltage, if it is then it almost has to be the board, if it were the sensor it wouldnt sense the actual oven temp. Is the actual oven temp way higher that the set temp? like 100 deg.+ higher or is it just 25-50 higher?

  • Steven Haney Nov 05, 2008

    My money is definitely on the board. Again if the sensor is showingthe actual temp the the board is not turning off the heat when it should. Most likely the bake relay on the board is stuck. Either way you would need to replace the board.

Model 970-6874 oven overheated, couldn't shut it off. Had to turn breaker off. It read f10 ERR. Oven was so hot smoke detector was going

This oven was manufactured by Electrolux. However, you should double-check the model number. There should be two more digits in the number.

The F10 error indicates a run-away oven temperature. You need to unplug the oven or turn off the circuit breaker for at least 5 minutes to reset the error. Sometimes, the EOC (electronic oven control or main board) needs to be replaced. The oven temperature probe sensor may also be bad. This sensor can often be accessed through the oven; look for mounting screws on the inside back wall of the oven. Otherwise, you need to take off the back panel. The resistance across the sensor should read 1100 ohms (the wires to the sensor are usually violet). If you see a reading above 2000 ohms, replace the sensor. If the reading is 1100 ohms, then the control board is the part to replace. However, if the oven became too hot, the entire range need to be replaced. If your oven is under warranty, contact Sears for service.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the complete model number if you'd like help finding the parts for your range.

I simply need a manual for my range. I have a service man coming. Is there one online?

Check your oven sensor. If it is open or shorted to frame it is bad. It should read 1100 ohms at room temp.

Frigidaire cookstove model no. fgf316wgta oven not getting hot enough

Hello - Does it reach the temperature and then back down, or does it take too long to get to your set temperature? Either you have a faulty element or a bad communication error with the main control board.

Amana stove flashs F3 on control panel. I checked the sensor probe in the oven....It read 1050 Ohms at room temperature. I believe the problem is in the control panel. The Manufacture stop making this

They may still have those parts in the warehouse even though that model has been discontinued. That is if it isn't too old. Try I have used them before on some older Appliances.

Viking oven gets warm but not real hot. The coil does not get red and appears to be not working

Typically the problem is with the oven controller. IF your RTD (resistive temperature device) is ok then your oven controller board is faulty. When the oven is turned on (bake mode) the oven controller closes the relay that controls the bottom element and the oven begins to heat. The RTD or thermostat provides a feedback loop to the oven controller. RTDs don't partially fail, they either work or they don't. Since your oven is getting warm I would imagine the RTD is okay. You can verify the RTD by measuring its resistance at room temperature. Remove power from the oven and either remove the RTD completely and measure with an OHM meter or remove leads and measure while still attached to the oven chassis. You may have to remove it if your ohm meter leads won't reach. I don't know your model oven but most RTDs at room temp are about 1.1 kohms or 1100 ohms. If this is the case your RTD is fine and your controller board is bad. Please let me know if you need anything else. Good luck!

Oven not heating properly

Hello. You have done an excellent job of explaining your problem. Read over the info. below as it sounds like your top element is not working.

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • 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.
