The oven has started not fully cooking the food even though the cooking temperature programed in says it is correct. This is not a constant problem. It is for now intermittent but happening more often. I need to fix if I can prior to the holiday cooking. Thank you, John Vincent
I researched the Repair Clinic.com site and for the unit in question it drove me to the Bake Ignitor Glow Bar as being the problem. It is 90% sure the problem lays in this part and instructs to R&R the part.

I personally wouldn't cook meat from frozen due to unpredictability of cooking times though extended defrost times at ambient can be undesirable due to promoting bacteria growth and the necessity of high temperature cooking to make it safe.
Defrosting in the refrigerator works well and is good food safety even though it takes a long time.
The motor driving the turntable is faulty, using the oven like this will not damage the oven, the food will not be cooked evenly though. Open the door and rotate the food occasionally to ensure allround cooking, close door and continue cooking.
Get an oven thermometer and measure the temperature in the oven to determine if it is at the correct temp or not. If not then there is an oven problem possibly the oven temp probe or the oven electronic controller. If the temp is correct then you are doing something wrong as a cook such as oven temp set too high or cooking for too long.
There does seem to be a fault, as the fan should run continuously even when the element goes off at the required temperature setting, and the light should atay on as well.
It suggests to me that there is a fault with the oven thermostat, or it is wired incorrectly.
What you are to do to solve the problem is to do a general troubleshooting on your oven below are instruction to follow.
The Microwave is a counter top model with a variety of preset
cooking options, including timed cooking at a variety of power levels and
sensor-cooking settings for popcorn, rice, beverages and single-serving
The sensor cooking and reheating features detect increasing
humidity levels inside the microwave and automatically adjust cooking
time for various types and amounts of food. This microwave
also includes a turntable and an electronic control panel.
Instructions below are step by step solution for your oven
to see if the microwave will start. If it will not start and the
display panel is blank, you may have a power problem. Unplug the
microwave and then plug it back in, making sure that all three prongs
of the power cord are fully inserted into the wall outlet. If this
doesn't work, check your home's fuse box. Reset the circuit breaker to
restore if necessary.
that the microwave door is fully closed. Press the Clear/Off button to
cancel any previous cooking instructions. Re-enter your cooking
program, including cooking time and food weight if necessary, and press
"Err" appears on the microwave display, press the Clear/Off button and
reenter your cooking program. The "Err" message will appear during the
sensor-controlled programs (Popcorn, Rice, Beverage or Reheat) if the
door is opened before steam is detected or if no steam was detected
within the maximum amount of time allowed by the microwave. Be sure to
leave the door closed during these programs, at least until time is
shown counting down on the display panel.
your control panel will not work or if an "L" is displayed on the
screen, press and hold the Clear/Off button for a full three seconds to
unlock the control panel.
your sensor reheat program is resulting in under- or overcooked food,
first try decreasing the amount of food in the microwave; the sensor
programs are designed for single servings of food. The sensor reheat
function works by measuring humidity inside the microwave--do not use a
tightly-covered dish with this setting because no moisture will be able
to escape and the food will overcook. Be sure that cooking containers
are dry; moist containers will increase the humidity in the microwave
and mislead the sensor, resulting in undercooked food.
your turntable is not rotating, first check to ensure that your food
container is positioned so that it can freely rotate without hitting
the microwave's interior walls; using a smaller food container can fix
this problem. If the turntable still will not rotate, lift the
turntable from its support and replace it carefully, ensuring that it
rests evenly on its support.
ooking with a convection oven requires some adjustments, but may prove much easier and more rewarding in the long run. Because the heated air transfers heat
more efficiently to cooking containers and exposed food surfaces, food
will take less time to cook. Most recipes can be cooked for 25% shorter
time, which ends up saving energy. The temperature at which food cooks
may need to be lowered slightly on a trial and error basis.
You can set the timer on a single oven 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

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 temperature.

When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour. Multifunction Oven Function Selections
2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting. 3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled. 4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function. 5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open. 6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open. 7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.
Advanced Oven Features Cavity Cooling The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off. Triple Reflective Door Glazing Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.
Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional) Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.
Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional) The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.
Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.
To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.
Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.
Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.
Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.
Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.
Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.
Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.
Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.
This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.
Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.
Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.
Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.
Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.
As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.
