    What do you mean by temp is off?

    Is it not heating, or is it overheating?

Hi Andew 799.
It sounds to me like your oven element(s). is faulty
If it is a fan assisted oven then you should check that first. You will need a multimeter to test it.
If it is a conventional oven, then it will have 2 side elements, and it is possible one has gone, thereby only giving you half heat.
The other possibility is a faulty thermostat probably cutting off prematurely.
You must check the elements first.
Hopr this helps.
Good luck.

When oven is set to a certain temp., it gets to that temp. and just keeps going. It appears that the oven does not know when it has reached a desired setting.


If you have a "mechanical" thermostat you would need a new one. Of course, if the end of the thermostat (inside the oven) is broken, that will prevent the thermostat from "feeling the heat". (Same solution). Most ovens now in use electronic controls, with a thermistor inside the oven cavity. That would be the first part to check

Fan oven is getting much hotter than what the thermostat indicates. Is it the thermostat or the switch


The thermostat controls the oven temp, therefore it is logical to assume that the thermostat is not sensing the temperature properly, so I would fit a new one.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Oven burns things, very hot on bottom


The temp indicator light goes on and off according to the temp selected.
The sensor referred to is part and parcel of the the thermostat, or temp selector
the fact the light goes on and off, shows that the thermostatt is working, but neccesserily at the correct temp.I maintain that the thermostat that controls the temp is faulty, and needs to be replaced.

My GE oven heating element heats red hot no matter what temp I put the oven on


Something is probobly wrong with the thermostat, it gets hot to warm up, but should lessen as it reaches your desired temp. If the thermostat is bad it will just keep going.

Frigidaire oven is slow to heat then exceeds set temp set


Normally you should have an appliance spare parts supplier in your area. They generally stock all range of spares for all appliances. You need to pull plug out of the wall and remove the panel covering the wiring to gain access to the oven thermostat. Look carefully on the body of the thermostat and record any numbers you see on a sticker that's present. Then remove knob off in front of thermostat and see if there is a nut attached to the centre which holds the thermostat in position or if there are 2 screws holding the thermostat in place. Use this information to order the thermostat also quoting the oven model number.

My oven will not stop at the assigned temp.


How much is it off? Adjustable with the thermostat knob. If too far for the knob setting then the thermostat is bad.
