OVEN NEVER REACHES TEMPERATURE SETTING

WHEN I SET THE OVEN TEMPERATURE AND TIMER, MY FOOD IS NEVER COOKED ENOUGH. THE PANEL SHOWS THE HEAT TEMPERATURE RISING AND BEEPS WHEN IT SUPPOSEDLY REACHES THE SET DEGREES. I HAVE HAD FOOD IN FOR AN HOUR AND OTHER FOODS UP TO SIX HOURS AND NONE OF IT WAS READY TO EAT. COULD IT BE THE IGNITOR AND/OR IS THERE A TEMPERATURE SENSOR THAT COULD BE RESET OR NEEDS TO BE REPLACED? WHERE ARE THE IGNITOR AND SENSOR LOCATED? IS THIS SOMETHING THAT WE COULD DO OURSELVES? THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!

I have a microwave in which i have option only for timer no option for setting temperature how to use it


Unlike a conventional oven, your microwave does not have a provision for setting a specific temperature. There may be only settings for different levels of heating such as high and medium and a special setting for thawing frozen food. The manual for your microwave could be a useful source of information regarding operation.

Is it dangerest when your oven beeps f2


Typically an oven beeps when the interior temperature macthes the temperature where you set the dial. This is an audible signal to that fact and particularly helpful when you need to pre-heat the oven. For example it you want to cook something at 350 degrees, you set the dial at 350. When your oven reaches that temperature it beeps to let you know. Some cooking directions tell you to preheat your oven. In that case, when you set the dial to 350 and wait for the beep...you know you are safe to start your cooking process because the oven is now pre-heated to the temperature you set. If your recipe requires a pre-heated oven, and you don't wait for the beep, your taking a guess at what temperature you're cooking your food. Additionally, if you want to know what the internal temperature of oven is and your oven is heated...you simply turn you dial setting and listen for the beep. Again, if you set your oven at 350 and you want to know how hot your oven is... slowly turn the dial setting. If the oven beeps at 275 then that's how hot your oven has gotten. To let it finish heating to 350 just reset the dial and wait for the beep.

Which will provide the lowest heat? low 10 hours or warm setting. Thanks


The WARM setting is the lowest heat. Here's a quote from the user manual:

"WARM is ONLY for keeping already cooked food at the perfect serving temperature. DO NOT cook on the WARM setting."

This is because at the WARM setting, the temperature doesn't get hot enough to kill food-borne bacteria.
