Oven temp wil not go above 250°

I cleaned the oven two weeks ago and yesterday went to bake something at 350°. The oven took forever to heat up  and only got to 250°. We tried setting it at 450° and it still only went to 250°. It's a 2003 electric wall oven.

First, how did you clean it, with an automatic cleaning cycle or by hand?

First thing to do, unplug it from any wall power for 10 to 30 minutes, it may reset itself. Do that regardless if you hand cleaned, whatever.

If you hand cleaned, unplug the unit, or while it is attempting to reset, and check by gently pushing on the elements in the oven, you may have pulled one out of it's connection point in the back and causing a high resistance connection, also look for a thermostat that may have been moved or damaged during the cleaning, there is a sensor in the oven somewhere, and it sends back the data on temperature, make sure it did not get moved into or out of an airstream, or unplugged partially also.

Something had to have been moved or broken while cleaning accidently it is too much of coincidence.

If nothing works after these attempts, write me at wbwill@sbcglobal.net and give me more data on the unit and I will try and look up some more trouble shooting ideas for you.

Riello 40 gasG900 burner that will ignite but when oven reaches temperature it turns off completely. After temp drops by 4 degrees it turns back on and reheats back to temp then turns off.Why is this?


that would be normal. if it didnt shut off, it would go above the set temperature. the heat is either off or on. it cant me in the middle. it turns 'off' so that the temperature doesnt go too far above 250. when it senses the temperature falling too low below 250, it heats it up again.

After finding a cheap one on Craig's and reading the problems I decided to roll the dice and buy this range. It has the exact problem described above. The owner had replaced the control module and temp probe with no luck. I hooked up the range and sure enough it would come up to temperature (let's say 350) then dropped back to below 200 and never recovered. Lots of relay clicking but no heat. I unplugged it, took off the back and sure enough, one of the connections to the bottom burner was burnt and the wire was laying in the bottom of the range. I cut the bad part off of the wire, added a new high temp stainless terminal reconnected and viola', it works fine now. Wonderful range for practically nothing. It took about 20 minutes to repair and cost $2.00 for the new terminal. Piece of cake. Take a look inside before you call someone. These terminals Samsung used are cheap, not crimped properly etc.... hope this helps! I'll change them all out tomorrow.

If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

check the bake (lower) element, mine just went out. It was easy to spot the problem once I pulled the element out, the wire had burnt off the end. Please remember to turn the power off first.

Whirlpool Electric Wall Oven RBS275PDQ6


had same problem, had computer checked out by profesisonal. Was ok. But it seems it is the control pad that clean cycle screws up. Try this (thanks to my wife and her experimental prowess). 1. turn oven on to custom broil. 2. push down temp button to 375. 3. press bake button. 4. You should now have up or down temp. We think you have to get past pre heat cycle in order for this to work. But work it does.

Whirlpool oven issue


Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

jaz3133, it's probably the temp sensor that has gone bad. You should be able to get it from the front. It's the probe that comes out from the back wall of the oven. You can have someone ohm it out. Should read approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Part number for the temp sensor is WB20K5040. Make sure power is off befor removing the sensor. Catriver..post back.
