Broiler element will not turn off at required oven temperature


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide the model number of your oven, which is located on a metal plate on the upper face of your oven after you open the door.

First, unless you have the latest Accurate model, your oven temp will rise 20-40 degrees F. above the set temperature, then turn off until it reaches 20-40 degrees below the set temperature.

Chances are you have a bad infinite switch and not a bad oven thermostat.

That is all I can tell you until you give me a model number.

Faulty thermostat it's the thin copper shaft in the oven that has a skinny tube running from it if you remove the oven knob you will find it goes back to the switch. Needs replacing.

Your oven's manual should tell you how to adjust this. The manual should also have a trubleshooting chart. Also remember, your temperature sensor may be going bad and will need to be replaced. For now, you can set the temperature 75 degrees higher to get the correct temperature you need.

Oven temperature is off - when set to 400 it heats up to 450. Do I need to replace the thermostat?

Possibly, but the sensors can be of a couple of different types and one type, a thermistor, isn't very accurate so there may be an adjustment for it.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly

Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

Replace the temperature sensor inside the oven cavity. It looks like a small metal rod. Be aware you will never get an accurate temperature reading with those cheap 5 dollar things. After the oven is preheated, you must wait 10 minutes and take a reading. Some models have a temperature adjustment, it's listed in the owners manual.
