Oven temperature control intermittent

I have just installed a new oven temperature control. You can set the oven temperature at a setting, the oven will heat to that setting and then the oven will not maintain the temperature setting.

Why doesn't it heat to set temperature?


Hello. In most ovens with an electronic control, the temperature is regulated by 2 things--the sensor and the oven control board. The sensor is simply an electrically resistive device that changes resistance as the temperature increases or decreases. It is connected to the main control board by 2 wires(just a "pigtail") and the main board is supposed to be calibrated to adjust properly. Most control boards have a built-in program by which you can adjust the calibration +/- 35 degrees. If your oven is outside that range, and you're sure that the sensor is good, the connections are good, etc., then the oven control board temp control circuit has gone bad. Keep in mind, when you turn on an electronically controlled oven, the first time it heats up is USUALLY hotter by about 50 degrees--this allows the floor, walls, and ceiling to reach proper temperature. This is called the initial spike. In gas ovens, the user must wait approximately 8-10 minutes AFTER the oven beeps to cook anything. In an exposed-element electric oven, the user waits approximately 10-15 minutes after the beep. In the hidden bake element models, waiting 20-25 minutes after the beep is normal!
Also, keep in mind, ovens can have 60 degree temp swings higher and lower(as long as the midpoint is close to the chosen temp) I hope I've helped you!

What needs fixed in my built in Tappen oven, model 12-1263-30, when it is 90 degrees off?


Hello Wendy;

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

The normal operation of a oven is the oven will rise 20-40 degrees above the set temperature and turn off. Then, when the oven temperature drops 20-40 degrees below the set temperature it will turn back on and cycle again. This is true except for the new accurate ovens.

Since you are getting heat your oven heating element is good.

You have a older oven.

Your problem is either the oven thermostat which cost over $200.00.

25691587-pfxp0re3pkk4llvjptchxxrl-3-0.jpg Or, your oven control, which base on your oven age is no longer available.

Now, here are your choices:

1.) Take a chance and purchase the oven thermostat and install it. If this does not solve the problem you can return it less shipping and restocking charges.

2.) My professional recommendation is to put the old girl to rest.
You can:
a.) Go to a Sears Outlet (Scratch and Dent) Store, save a couple of hundred dollars on a new oven and still get a one year warrantee .
b.) Go to a used appliance store.
c.) Go to Habitat Stores - used appliance stores.
d.) Go to Second Chances Stores - Appliances removed from homes that were torn down.

Best of luck,

Peter

Kenmore electric range 911.95575. What part controls the oven temperature


It's a "joint venture" between the electronic oven control and the temperature sensor (temperature probe) located inside the oven cavity.

Maytag oven model cre9800ace with error code F3


Hi Janine.

F3 means "Shorted oven temperature sensor" and it is returned when the oven electronic control detects a wrong impedance value from the oven temperature sensor circuit.

The oven temperature sensor is a probe located inside the oven cavity. The sensor can be removed from the oven and tested using a multimeter set on impedance. The impedance reading across the two sensor's contacts at room temperature must be about 1100 Ohms. Impedance increment rate is 100 Ohms more for every 50 degrees temperature increase. If the reading is sensibly different from this value the sensor must be replaced.

Here the replacement part:
Long Oven Sensor Kit

The sensor is indicated as part number 11 in the exploded view available here.

The sensor is held by two screws. In order to replace the sensor disconnect power, disconnect the connector attached to the sensor, undo the two screws and remove the sensor. Perform operations in reverse order to install the new sensor.

Regards.

GE oven, F2 message but fault is with broiler element staying on?


Hi there,

F2
Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked - If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit

F2
Note: Also see fan thermal switches - Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation.
· Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode.
· Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode.
· Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem.

· Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode).
· Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc.
· Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.

Good Luck

Oven temperature is +100F warmer than setpoint


Sounds like the wrong module got installed or is defective. Dangerous situation. Call or take it back to whoever installed it. If you did yourself, pull the control module and return it to the shop you bought it from for a new one or make sure you have the correct module by checking the part number on the module itself. Better yet call Viking directly. Here's customer support info: Customer Support If you own a Viking product and have questions or require assistance with product repairs if you wish to speak to a customer service representative please call us at 1-888-VIKING1 (1-888-845-4641), then press 1.
