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!!!

You can have the oven recalibrated by a professional OR you can purchase an oven thermometer and check the temperature yourself. Place the oven thermometer in the oven.Set the oven to a specific temperature. When it indicates it is at that temperature check the thermometer. Adjust your setting by that many degrees. For instance, if you set the temp at 350 and the oven thermometer shows 450, then reduce your temperature setting by 100 degrees each time you use the oven.
You may need to see the secondary error code (F1-E?). The chart below is for a KitchenAid Range. Most likely is a control board issue. We rebuild control boards if you want to save some money compared to new.
hello, You can set the timer on a range slow cooker to automatically
switch to a warming setting when you estimate foods will finish
cooking. The programmable features allow you to leave food stewing at
home while you are out of the house, freeing up your day. Set the timer
on a range slow cooker to let the kitchen appliance do all the
work, and come home to a fully cooked meal.
Fill the insert of the range slow cooker with food and cover it
with the lid. At least a quarter of the insert should be filled with
liquid to keep the environment moist during long cooking times.
Press the "On/Off" button on the left side of the electronic control
panel in the front of the appliance. This will turn on the slow cooker
to the low heat "Warm" setting.
Press the "Cook Time" button on the right side of the electronic
control panel to add hours to the timer which will show a total time in
hours with a red digital display. Continue to press the button until
the display indicates the desired cook time in one-hour increments up
to 10 hours. The cooker will automatically adjust the temperature
setting based on the amount of time you programmed on the timer.
Cooking times of six hours or less automatically start on "High" heat
and times of seven hours or more will start on "Low" heat. A small
indicator light will come on below the word to tell you the cooking
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
Many White-Westinghouse manuals can be found here:
I had the same problem and was able to solve it. They didn't have the exact manual for mine (a KF450G), but they had one that was similar enough (KF580H) to solve this issue. Setting the knobs to clean is only part of the process, to get it to run you need to set the timer.
Read the key information below transcribed from the manual:
To set the controls for the cleaning cycle:
1) Close the oven door.
2) Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
3) Be sure the Start Time knob is set for the same time as the clock. If not, turn the knob to the time on the clock. The knob will then pop out.
4) Push in and set the Stop Time knob for 2 to 3 hours past the Start Time.
Example: If the Start Time and Clock read 1:00, set the Stop Time for 3:00 or 4:00.
5) Turn the Temperature Control to CLEAN.
6) Turn the Selector to CLEAN.
If all controls are set correctly, the oven signal light will come on and stay on until the oven reaches its cleaning temperature. It will then cycle on and off.
There is more information in the manual, but it's much too much information to manually transcribe - I've only typed enough for you to get it working. Note that the LOCKED light won't light initially, it only lights once the oven exceeds 550 degrees. Once that light is on, the oven will not reopen until the temperature drops below that point, even if you stop the clean cycle.
Be sure to empty out the storage drawer under the oven before cleaning.
ladder, here are some suggestions to try to help you with this problem. Make sure that you wait another 10 minutes to put your food in after the preheat light goes out or tone goes on. The manufactures like to get that energy effecient label on these ranges. If your utensil is dark, darkened by age or glass, these will absorb more heat and can cause over browning. Lower the oven temp for these types of utensils or use a pan with a shiney finish. Make sure the utensil is not too close to any oven wall. Do not check for doneness until minimum recommended baking time. Opening the door frequently causes the lower element to cycle and provides too much intense heat. Use the second or third rack from the bottom. Finally, check the owners manual for calibration instructions. You might be off with that. Catriver...post back.
