All of a sudden, our oven is stuck on certain temperatures. For instance, if you hit Bake, instead of being able to choose a temperature, 350 appears, with a little "Set" flashing off to the left of the temp. You can do nothing but press "Start" or "Clear." No adjustments can be made. If you choose Conv. Bake, you get 325 degrees.
If you press the 9 and 10 (marked "control lockout"), all you can do is lower a temp, not raise it. Very bizarre. This may have been the result of a short power outage, but that may have been coincidental. Help?

Your oven sensor has gone bad and telling the control board/thermostat to keep heating. Find the model number on the range and go to a parts distributor like repairclinic.com or apdepot.com and order you sensor. This is an easy repair.
On most of the Hotpoint ovens for regular baking, press Bake and use the + or - buttons to set the desired oven temperature. Then press Start/On. Then the oven will display Pre as it re-heats. When the thermostat indicates the desired temperature is reached, the oven will beep. The racks should be on the middle positions for most baking. (For roasting use the lowest positions.) Put the food in when the oven is done preheating. When done, press Clear/Off. Timed baked requires the clock be set correctly, then set the start and end times.
For the older ovens with dials to control the oven, set the first dial to Bake and the second to the desired temperature. Wait at least 10 minutes for the oven to preheat. Again put the oven racks in the middle of the oven for most baking.
Do not lock the oven latch and keep the oven closed through the baking cycle as much as possible. (Rotating pans and basting steps should be done quickly so that the oven doesn't cool much.)
Set the electronic oven control for normal baking at 350°F. Obtain an
average oven temperature after a minimum of 5 cycles. Press CANCEL
or CLEAR to end bake mode.
1. Set EOC to bake at 550°F.
2. Within 5 seconds of setting 550°F, press and hold the bake pad for
approximately 15 seconds until a single beep is heard (longer may
cause F11 shorted keypad alarm).
3. Calibration offset should appear in the display.
4. Use the slew keys to adjust the oven temperature up or down 35°F
in 5°F increments.
5. Once the desired (-35° to 35°) offset has been applied, press
CANCEL or CLEAR.
Note: Changing calibration affects both Speed Bake and normal bake
modes. The adjustments made will not change the self-cleaning
To Program Oven for a Delayed Start Time and to Shut-Off Automatically
1. Be sure that the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Place the food in the oven.
3. Push "Bake Time". "00:00" and the words "BAKE TIME" will glow in the display window.
4. Push and hold up or down arrows until the desired baking time appears in the display.
5. After the bake time has been set, "----°" will appear in the display and the word "BAKE" will flash. The display will flash and beep once until the
oven temperature has been set.
6. Push "Stop time". The time when baking will stop, will appear in the display window. The words "BAKE STOP TIME" will glow in the display.
7. Push and hold up or down arrows until the time that you want cooking to be completed appears in the display.
8. Push Bake (or Conv). "---°" will appear, and the word "BAKE" will glow in the display.
9. Push and hold up or down arrows until the desired baking temperature appears in the display.
10. If the baking temperature is not set, the control will beep. "---°" will flash and the word "BAKE" will appear in the display.
Oven Temperature Adjustment Option for the MSG5770 If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven temperature, set the temperature 25°F higher or lower than the temperature in your recipe, then bake. The results of the “test” should give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature. To adjust the oven temperature: 1. Press the BAKE pad. 2. Enter 550° by pressing the number pads “5, 5, 0”. 3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several seconds until 0° appears in the display. 4. Press any number pad to change the temperature. Each time a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°F. • Press repeatedly to reach +35°F. Continue pressing to reduce the temperature up to -35°F. • If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the change will be displayed. For example, if the oven temperature was reduced by 15°, the display will show -15°. 5. When you have made the adjustment, press the CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted temperature. NOTE: Do not change the temperature setting more than 10° at a time before testing the oven. It is not necessary to readjust the oven temperature if there is a power interruption. This adjustment will not affect broil or clean temperatures.
If oven does not heat check heating element and oven control. Follow also suggestion below: "
It won't bake
when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out.
The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the
oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an
expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may
last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when
baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be
You may get fooled into thinking it's
working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use
the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food
may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor
If the bake element is burned out, replacing
it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further
troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire
When the temperature is consistent but too
high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First
check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its
holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the
heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.
If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.
ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature.
To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace
the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the
temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.
without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling
temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob
and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual
setting of the thermostat.
If, when you remove the knob,
there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you
can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again.
If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more
than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the
